It used to be rare to get a 40-degree day in Tasmania. Maybe not so much anymore, BOM is increasing the chances by adding more sites to its network. But I think its still exciting to see a place go down to a 40-degree day especially older places. Ina

An extraordinary week. A massive outbreak of extremely dry air over most of eastern Australia starting last Sunday and just now only starting to return to sort of normal.

...well that was wrong for N Central Gippsland, we had 2 weak/high based storms brew up here this arvo. Looking at the models for next 7 days or more, seems like a ground hog repeat of the current synoptic?: Persistent humidity from the NE, storm

This is the driest start to the year since we moved here 8 years ago and as dry as any of the older locals can remember, lucky we got that rain in spring. Next week is looking promising, as the forecast rain is getting closer not staying on the 7th d

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.

Later runs seem to be suggesting something similar to Hilda, Joyce path. It's funny this year how the models from a long way out suggest big systems heading west and maybe with a Pilbara / Gascoyne recurve but as they get closer they adapt to the rid
