Do you find the 165km/h winds recorded on Victoria's south coast this week impressive? I do, because it was not from a hurricane, a direct hit from a deep low, or anything exotic. It was just a passing cold front. And at 39* latitude, it is not exactly in the antarctic storm abyss.

Some more high winds forecast this week. Tomorrow is expected be wild, infact now at midnight winds are already strong. Wednesday will be the day for stupendous winds in Bass strait with a 966hPa low just south of Tasmania and a cold front moving through.

Been fairly cool lately. But the good news is that now we've entered daylight saving so I can now have an hour in the sun after work.

While the temp failed to reach the forecast high miserably, (max 23.7C at 4pm), it is currently 23C at 11pm. So nice.

Except it's extremely windy. And when I say extremely windy, I do mean ****ing windy as hell. Some brutal gusts as I type this now.

115 km/h .... Laverton

The next day to watch is Wednesday. A 960hPa low is forecast to be positioned just south of Tasmania which will cause some serious **** on the exposed coasts of Victoria and Tasmania.

Wednesday is ****ing D-day. Could see some of the most violent winds in decades. This is a highly upgraded scenario from yesterday's model runs. Exposed areas in Bass Strait, along the Vic coastline and South/western Tasmania will get an ass whooping to end all ass whoopings...
