Snapper22lb, you can look at ESRL:PSD map room to look at anomalies over various time periods. For instance last 90 days shows the general tendency towards higher pressure along much of the east coast.

The BOM version takes account of Drought Factor and KDBI which use recent rainfall and temperatures to work out how dry the bush and grassland is. The WZ number assumes worst case.

Kind of Greece feel to things at the moment. Fortunately winds are lightish. But still so hot away from the coastal band. Maybe planners should never have allowed suburbs west of sea breeze boundaries in any major east coast cities. Population limits

Yes - I also saw that Cabramurra's overnight low was 20.1! About 1500m elevation! Here in Goulburn, the average overnight minimum for the last 7 nights has been 7 degrees - amazing. We are about 650m elevation!

Looking at the projected maps it makes me wonder is that all we have to look forward to around here . ..Massive stagnant highs in the Tasman. It would be gold to get a front that pushes all the way up here then stalls over the region, something that
