Tropical weather patterns have been bringing rain and storms from the north, which is great for breaking the savage 10 year drought we have had in Victoria, but not so good for kitesurfing.
Then when a southerly change arrives it comes as a storm too, with high winds and often more rain. So far, the regular afternoon sea breezes have been few and far between. The forecast from Seabeeze below illustrates this pattern.

There were very strong easterlies on Monday too, which are unusual for Melbourne.
