Change ploughed through here at the airport very quickly. Three missed approaches, first from west then two from east, before settling on 23 as usual.

Nice and hot though, was hopeful it would make 42-43C and it did so, 44C at Edinburgh. Bodes well for EASILY making 42-43C next sat especially and probably even hotter mid next week.

TS cool

Looks cooler with tropical moisture and some rain mid next week onwards actually on some models TS
That's what I wish for anyway, Lennie, sounds good to me!

WX rain maps saying around 5 mm. For a decent drop, we'd need about 30-40 mm for it to do anything, <5 mm will be taken from the ET rates, Davis's fancy acronym for EvapoTranspiration

Latest GFS is bringing in the moisture more than the prev run for next week now, awaiting EC but still fairly hot. Sat and sun definite cookers for us, long day for me sunday!

TS cool

Today got to 42C after 2pm dropped to 35C then sat on until after 5pm then dropped all the way to 28C now. DP was shot up to 20C after 6pm this evening. It feels rather muggy outside. Although humidity should ease once SE wind surge in will be drier than the onshore wind.

In terms of extreme heat stress does not look to bad provided of course you hide during the middle of the day. The Seabreeze looks cooling and the night time temps not too hot.. Take care in the heat..

Can anyone tell me what Foxtel use for their ten day forecast on the weather channel? Whatever it is, they are certainly keen to give us one very serious extended heat wave well in to next week!

Pretty sure Weatherzone still produce it for SkyWeather.

It has been on the cards for the heat to extend well into next week, as mentioned earlier in this thread.

I'm guessing real estate values will go up at Parawa West in the coming years, 17C there now whilst it's still over 30C in Adelaide and its suburbs. I guess you can chalk that down to the adiabatic warming off the Lofty Ranges in the E-SE flow.

Also a question for anyone in the know- how did the CFS (SA) come to deploy portable AWS' for use on the fire grounds? AFAIK, none of the other states utilise them. It would certainly be a very handy resource in fighting a bushfire.

Parawa West is traditionally a colder and wetter location. It is quite high (341m) compared to other nearby stations as well, and exposed to winds coming straight off the sea in every direction bar the NE...
Google map

Weather Nugget will know about the history of the portable AWS's but yer they have been in use here for many years now from memory...

Parawa West and surrounds would be the most miserable place to live in SA just about. Most nights with onshore winds it will be either in thick fog or vile drizzle. And bloody freezing. Even when Adelaide is 38C at times it can be awful and cold there. Been paintballing down there a few times and boy is it miserable! Lovely countryside though that's for sure.

The PAWS are fantastic, no idea why other states don't use them, thought they'd be pretty much a given.

TS cool

Well, we eventually got Farmer's Union over here, so maybe we'll get PAWS too... wink

Parawa West sounds like heaven, nice to have such a place within a reasonable distance to escape to. No help when the wind is N-NE though as it often is during your heatwaves. At those times you wish Lofty was 2000 m high...

EDIT: Looks like the NSW RFS do use them in the field, but they don't report to the BOM. South Australia remains unique in this respect.

I thought most of the states had some capacity to measure wind/temperature/humidity attached to their ICVs? I know some still have the handhelds but have seen some with cup anenometers attached to the radio masts.

Going 38 for both tomorrow and Friday, Saturday being 43-44, before a cooler 38 before going up again, don't know about storm activity, maps saying very minimal.

The frustration of an Oregon WMR200A, had it wired at school and didn't like my computer nor the software reading it, so I've lost about 45 days of data, Bummer.
