what a morning!!! Below freezing out here. While I registered -0.4, I am going to guess it was colder than that because the water in my makeshift birdbath was frozen! Also the ice on the cars that were still parked in the street looked very thick! But again today goes to show how Melbourne itself may never reach below 0 again with temps up to 5 degrees cooler in some suburbs!

Spent the day in daylesford, where it was sunny with some high cloud and a bit of a breeze. All you Trentham people might agree with that statement!

got back here this arvo and just a very slight breeze blowing now.

min: -0.4(may have been colder!) max: 14.6

Amazing frost here in prahran this morning, i recorded 0.6C.

My partner was at Mt Macedon and he had 0C to 5.9C with a crunchy white frost that lasted all day in the shady spots. It was also just 1.8C inside our place up there last night and this morning

Well, 0.8C at around 10pm last night with temp fluctuating wildly and then permanently up to 4C with the same as what DJ had at his place, that is a bit of a pick up in the northerly wind. Was actually 6C this morning at 6am, not too bad in the end except for a bit of wind chill. Currently 2C so if the northerly doesn't pick up again tonight it should be a frost tomorrow morning.

A freezing start here as well with temperatures down to 0 degrees last night. It's actually quite mild out there now as was today with a sunny condition though the wind made it feel quite chilly.

Sounds like I missed a super cold morning or two while I was away! Canberra was freezing cold, yesterday morning when I left for work at 7.30am it was -1 (and I stupidly forgot to take my coat up with me Mad ), cars covered in frost and took a long time for the rental car to clear up the windscreen. It's alot greener up there but still incredibly dry, the dams looked to be filling up a little which made a nice change from the last time I was there earlier this year. I still think our west looks in worse shape than they are though Sad

I'm up there again next week, then the week after I'm off to Perth. I might have to become the resident travelling weather chick lol!

ROFL, Mick. They're all out playing in the puddles I think! That's one huge line of wet stuff, stretching from Laverton to past Apollo Bay, lovely to see Very Happy

Shame it hasn't made it into the inner west, but Geelong and Avalon must be getting a good drenching.

we must have got one very light shower, i have been out all night and it was dry, only reason why i know there must have been a shower was that I went outside to throw something in the recycling bin! Otherwise would not have know. Puddles? Not really here, wet? more like damp!

and as expected anything north of sunbury is being hit with a deluge, even south of Geelong (and near Geelong as well) it's raining, but in between NADA!!!

Hardly a deluge Tony, only 6mm here overnight and today, and I'd say only about 3mm of it after 9am today. The radar is misleading for some reason showing some intense echoes but it's only light on the ground with a few brief heavier periods. Not sure what happened to the good 'dynamics' we were supposed to have over central VIC today, it's classic on and north of the ranges and coastal.

Well, central highlands are doing well out of this system, 45mm at blue Mountain, 25mm at Lancefield, 33mm at Redesdale, since 9am.

Two and a half drops here in the city Rolling Eyes

Keep an eye on the weather coming off the Grampians now. I think most of Melbourne should see 5-10mm overnight now that northerly winds are relaxing a little and the origin of the rainfall is more convective.

Statewide bar the rainshadow of the W suburbs, this system has been very useful!

Yep, haven't checked the gauge yet but we have had several hours of solid rain, not as heavy as locations on the north side of the range like the aforementioned localities but certainly a good drop I would reckon.

Very interested in that band too Karl, even if it is likely to slip a bit south just looking at it's movement on radar,

Speaking from my perspective, it was another very disappointing system.

Here in CS, we have only had 5.2mm for the month and a 'whopping' 111mm for the year.

We just continue to miss out.

well I must missed showers in Tarneit today, nothing as far as I know fell down there, however when I got to mum and dad's at Sunshine (for a nice home cooked Italian dinner Wink ) Saw that a shower must have fallen over there. Got home here in caroline Springs, no evidence of any showers.

Cool day as well, some sun some clouds, not a lot of wind, not too much to report.

min: 5.3 max: 13.3
