Victoria: Rain and Convective Showers 1st - 5th November 2007
« on: 02 November 2007, 03:28:40 PM »
I thought this merited a thread given the significance of this rainfall. The past three months have been Melbourne's dryest in recorded history, with unbelievably pathetic rainfall. We recieved nothing of the storms that hit mansfield the other day, however today was a significant change. The trough system and forecast cut-off low have brought convective showers/storms to the state, and in my excitement I decided to take  a few pictures. Ill have them up as soon as I work out how to upload from my digi SLR.

Note: don't expect anything spectacular, im still trying to learn how to use the camera, and the storms weren't exactly that special.

Edit: Michael would you be able to look into grabbing the latest loop of melbourne doppler, very interesting looking storm  down near Wonthaggi.
Explosive events coming to a weather system near you.

Hi John,

The Strikeone archives do not have the new Melbourne radar yet. I have emailed Mike Fewings about this.

I notice a big orange bit over Ballarat right now.

I also never realised Melbourne's radar updated 6 minutely.
