So warm here this morning. The forecast wind started up sometime in the early hours, quite brisk. Says it's 15c but it feels warmer.

It's a bummer that the surf is going to be up smack bang in the middle of my exam period too.


Yeah noticed that... Had a memorable one back in mid-October 2010 which is probably one of the best snow chases of my life and I saw snow falling as low as Lawson (730m) in the morning. Then I recall a big one in November a few years back too...

The November one is the one i remember, we even had ice pellets during the afternoon. A bit of sun in the afternoon ruined the max temp though frown

That is probably the strongest change i can remember hitting up here, winter seems to disappoint. Im not sure if has something to with the heat often proceeding the fronts? seems to give the cold air masses more oomph to move north.

Looks like 25.9c is as good as it's going to get at this location, westerly is even weaker than yesterday, sea breeze should have no problems now.

The wind is really getting up now, but i'm hearing reports of massive wind damage down in Tassie, it's hitting them broadside.

I am just 1.5km in straight line from the ocean and it is a genuine 30C here at Shellharbour. NW/W quite gusty as well.

Yes, it seems the Illawarra coast is again putting the metropolitan coast to shame. eek

The big problem with Sydney Summers - very few days like today: cool (even crisp) night and morning, brilliant blue sky, gentle breeze and low humidity. A 30 degree day in February is nothing like today. Funny that there seems to be a cultural expectation even among people who bave always lived here that Summer like this, and many Sydneysiders get annoyed or disappointed when that expectation is not met ("Where's Summer" being an often-heard lament even in a normal Summer). But if you like your Summers hot, sunny and dry, the East Coast is the wrong place.

Thats why spring is my favorite season. 30-33c and 10% humidity doesn't feel that bad compared to a mid summer 27c and 17-18c DP.

The only time we get a reprieve from the humidity in summer is when it's pushing 40c frown
I should move to California

This partly explains on why I wouldn't mind living in Canberra, as summers there are sunny & dry, but not too hot, unlike in Adelaide & Perth. Plus, they have cooler nights as well. smile

Whilst summers in Sydney's coastal suburbs doesn't get too hot in general, it's the high humidity & warm nights that make it a bit unbearable for my liking.

Bearing in mind that the earliest 30C on record is October 9, 26C tomorrow is narrowing the margin between normal and extreme a bit.

That's true, but at least Canberra has never recorded a 30C+ day in August & September, unlike in Sydney.
The highest recorded temp for Canberra in September was 28.6C on 26th September 1965, whilst it reached 34.6C in Sydney on that same day.

Personally, on a day like tomorrow, I'd rather be in Canberra than in Western Sydney, where the latter can expect a maximum temp of up to 34C!! shocked

26c, wow. I can believe it though, it went up from warm to really warm today with great determination. That rotten warm dusty wind blasting away, and more tomorrow. Then "storms" saturday, and back to frosts Monday. It's all happening here.

Have to say I am enjoying spring this year.
21.5c max here today but it felt warmer in the sun (as usual this time of year) today.
Looks like a mighty cold front with an epic southerly fetch forecast on some of the 'leading brand' models for later next week
And to think that spring use to be my least favourite season up here in the Blue Mountains - what was I thinking??

Finally last night was the first night this spring that was warm enough to be comfortable without heating and blankets, this morning as well first time warm enough without heating. That last warm spell end September was too short and was swallowed up by cloud/wind as fast as it began so no real warmth was felt in morning or evening unlike last night.

Still quite unclear for next week, GFS and EC now have ECL type developments latter next week. I think that idea might not go away now, and this will bring plenty of rain for the coast and ranges. Not really a good snow system but a cool interesting one for spring for sure.

I'm down at Numeralla near Cooma- good grief it's warm this morning, would be well above 20C already given that it's close to that at Cooma Airport, and I'm only at 788 m ASL, in fact probably a similar temp to home which is on 22C. I notice Obs Hill is already above 25. Southerly making its way up the coast though so will nip this heat in the bud.

That double doona last night was not a good option, ended up having to stick my legs out the bottom (but it's going to cool down again so it's staying a bit longer!). Up this morning before the first aeroplanes (first flights are 6.20am and you can hear them) to fiddle with the irrigation pump and it was so warm (18c), and no wind at all. And so bright... we should have gone to daylight saving last weekend. Sun's coming up some ridiculous time of the morning.

Amazing weather, but you can feel the heat of summer gearing up.

Today will comfortably be the warmest of spring so far up here, Sydney already exceeded its forecast Max of 30 and climbing until the SE change starts. The Hunter could be the real hot spot today as the change will not reach there. The cold has downgraded a fair bit so no major cold at this stage with the coming changes.

Can you explain why is it the wrong place for summer just because we're on the east coast? I remember back in the early 80's we had greats summers then almost no rain at all and no southerlys wish it was like that again
