Recent Events


A cold front moved over Victoria Sunday, with generally light to moderate
northwesterly winds, shifting southwesterly behind the front. Showers occurred
over much of the State with many locations receiving some rainfall. Most totals
were less than 4 to 10mm, with higher totals across the Yarra ranges and the
northwest and East Gippsland receiving generally < 2mm. The highest rainfall
recorded in the 24 hours to 9am Monday was 27.4mm at Portland, 27.3mm at Mt
Donna Buang and 27.1mm at Falls Creek (although some of the Falls Creek amount
may be associated with snow melt).



Minimum temperatures were generally between 1 and 4 degrees below the monthly
average. Most minima ranged between 1 and 6 degrees. The lowest recorded
temperature overnight was -6 degrees at Falls Ck and Mt Hotham. The highest
overnight minimum was 9 degrees at Cape Nelson, Cape Otway, Port Fairy and
Rhyll.



Showers continued over eastern parts of Melbourne and across Gippsland today,
and have eased further this afternoon. A large part of the State was mostly
dry, with totals between 1 and 4mm generally recorded across Gippsland and into
the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The highest recorded rainfall totals in the 7
hours since 9am this morning were 6.6mm at Mt Wellington, 4.2mm at High Ridge
and 3.8mm at Falls Creek.

Explanatory Notes
A large high pressure system over Victoria will move slowly out over the Tasman
Sea by late Tuesday as a front crosses the Bight. The front will weaken as it
enters the west of the State during Wednesday. Another high will move slowly
across the Bight on Thursday and Friday, while extending a ridge over Victoria.
