The SC Weather Report & Heat Maps – R21

Today I’m checking in from a very cold, showery and windy Melbourne, with temperatures only reaching the mid to high single figures. Showers are falling as snow on the ranges down to about 400-500m! I’m here for the annual Australian Severe Weather Conference, so the weather is probably appropriate!

Also note that the match between the Rabbitohs and the Storm on Sunday afternoon is at Gosford. As usual, the local time for the match is listed beside the location.

Friday 6pm: A few showers and light patchy rain areas are currently present around the Auckland area, and are expected to ease and clear later tonight, but this is unlikely to be before making an impact on much of tonight’s match.
