One of my 'homes' back home - my sister said they were meant to get a record -39 overnight. How's that for a contrast? I think the last I experienced -38 was in uni.

I've never confirmed it, but the guy who told me years ago seemed pretty sure of himself - apparently the Frankston weather station is at the end of the pier, so is always a lot cooler, particularly on the really hot days

Today's forecast is an odd one: "Slight chance of a thundery shower with little or no rainfall."

How does that work? Thundery shower with no rainfall? :mrgreen:

Speaking of sudden temperature changes: at about 1pm today, the temperature at the Scoresby weather station (the nearest to where I live in Ringwood North) dropped 5 degrees in 5 minutes. :shock:

First wet, cold ride of the year today.
Got fooled by the radar otherwise I would have taken more wet weather gear.
Even so, a fun day out.

Yeah, bummer. No ride for me today. I thought it was gunna clear. I was about to ride when it pissed down again around 4pm, then it obviously kept drizzling intermittently

Friday's commutes will be interesting. The current weather forecast is for 95% chance of 25 to 80mm. :shock:

BOM website and "BOM Weather", forecast 25-80mm of rain. WeatherZone app which claim they pull data from the BOM but also other sources, 10-20mm.

Question is who is right?

Last time they forecast something like this was back in January. I didn't go away that long weekend because of it and found out from others who went it barely rained at all!

Rain shadow between Warnambool and Port Fairy - it never rains down there!*

*Pack the floaties - most of the area will be under water!
