Ahhh, that would explain the ice cream van I seen on my lunch break going at full speed with tunes switched on and flashing lights and going through red lights ;-)

Bit of rain in Sydney this lunch time, needed a brolly for the first time in ages. Wetted the ground but no great amounts. Just heavy drizzle really.

I see Newcastle has been in a southerly airstream for some hours now, while here in Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest its just been a very light Nor'east breeze, looking at the doppler it should'nt be to long now.
Might get lucky and get a drizzle fest!!

Today is actually the first day I've taken my brolley in over a week. I masochistically enjoy walking in drizzle like kizz enjoys mowing the lawn on a 45C day, so I won't be needing it today either. Not that I was expecting much more than this anyway.

Could do with what Johannesburg and surrounds are copping at the moment. The Aussie cricket team's tour match was cancelled even before it was due to commence due to a waterlogged ground. Such is the world we live in these days.

Temp dropped from 26.5 to 21.5 in 25 minutes, between 2.30 and 2.55 - not a bad effort. It's risen a degree again since then but quite pleasant with a good SE'ish breeze pushing through. smile

The airport peaked at 27.2 at a tad after 2pm.

It's a delightfully cooler morning. Minimum temp around 8 with maybe 3 or 4 mm of rain overnight. The demon heat hasn't left us yet, though as I see it will be back over the 30 mark again in a few days.

This is only a brief reprieve as have been the last couple of cooler interludes in Jan. We are looking at 35's this weekend. When I get a couple of cooler nights though it allows me to get the excess heat out of my house. Finally got the house under 20 again overnight. About 17 this morning inside. Tonight will help me get it maybe to 15.

(LONG RANGE) GFS showing a big lot of rain in Central NSW about FEB 18. Way Way Way too far out BUT it has been fiddling with moisture around that time for several days now. Fingers crossed we might get something around that time frame.

Mean time - loving the cool breeze!!! smile

The coolest indoor temp I get in the summer months is around 21C/70F and that's WITH the use of A/C to stop the heat bank from accumulating too much, AND I am about as exposed to the southerlies as you can get. That really illustrates the difference between coast and tablelands- mean temps are still cooler out there.

(With gratuitous use of caps for emphasis, thanks Diamond Dave).

This is one of the better long term rainfall scenarios we have seen from GFS for the inland for many weeks. Not inconsistent with rain events in early autumn in previous years. Finally, some monsoonal moisture heads south and across the continent. One to keep an eye on.

HBB - the last couple of weeks, the house has been well above 20 even at night. It's only when we get the cooler nights that you don't get that I can get it under 20 at some point.

I would put up with a little more daytime heat for more nocturnal cooling, but it's really the temp at 10:30-11 PM that counts for sleeping. I've noticed during the worst of the heat it's been near 30C in Canberra at 10 PM - not much good.

Fingers crossed for a wetter break around mid Feb. Not looking forward to the 20C+ dewpoints that this might bring on the coast, but we all badly need a drink.

Yes that late evening temp is a huge thing. When Daylight Saving ends that one thing is a very obvious change, by the time we head of to the land of nod, there has been an extra hour of cooling. When it's still 26 or so at 9pm it's not much fun.

We've been lucky that it's been so dry that the nights are cooling ok. If humidity rises, the nocturnal cooling will be slower and less. Hence I believe why in Feb our days are 1 degree cooler than Jan but the nights are actually marginally warmer in Feb than Jan. Feb is generally more humid than Jan.

Feb is definitely the most humid month on the coast and some of that spills over to the CTs. Runs of 20C+ dewpoints are common (maybe not this year though) and the frogs and mozzies are very much in their element.

18C with an 8C dewpoint here this morning which is almost unheard of at this time of year, enjoying it while it lasts but it's also symptomatic of just how dry it is atm.

Wow, how much are the BOM covering their arses tonight?


Forecast = Sydney area

Cloudy. The chance of light showers. Winds south easterly 15 to 20 km/h.

Check the radar out and there's more than a chance. It's isolated showers, just like the forecast has said for a few days now. Also, some showers might be a bit heavier than light.

Then, there is the fact that the forecast is the same for Richmond as it is for the City, yet it's quite clear it won't be the same.
I'm so over these generic forecasts that state the exact same forecast for the west as they do for the east, except for the forecast temps. Surely some work experience boy could be given the task of adjusting the wording from Mr BOM Computer to Mr Actual Wilkie and try and get the Sydney wide region a bit more accurate? FFS,

I'd be happy to do it for nothing!!!

The east coast "doona-stream" that "Steve lots of 7's" talks about, is clearly evident on tonight's sat pic's.

Aaaaaaannndd its gone. Hopefully it pops up a few more times over the next week or so and maybe we can start getting excited for some actual weather. Only 1 thread started in the past 6 weeks for NSW related weather!

Do they take on work experience kiddies these days? When I was in Year 10 and asked the BoM they just said we don't do work experience for school students. I was passed off to the Ionospheric Prediction guys in the same building who were excellent. One of the doctors there managed to get me in the BoM for one afternoon.

And once again I could not believe the timing of the 20-20 cricket at the SCG. Sure enough some maritime fungus produced that nuisance heavy drizzle just at the right moment to ruin the game. Unbelievable!

Yes DG GFS has shifted it well south - look out Tassie smile

That far out I only use it as a rough possibility or to get an idea of some possible trends.

I still like the fact it's thinking of moisture sourced from the NW of Oz making it's way south and east. At some point though one of these will happen. I think we are due for rain. Whether it's the next fortnight or the next month, every day is a day closer to rain. Shame about the hot days before it.

Next week looks like another very hot one for here. Mid/high 30's all week when our average is 27.

At least this morning is really nice n cool. We have some coastal cloud pushed over us - thanks guys for the pressie. smile

Lovely morning - will get to 28 today but tonight will be cool again and I've got the house at 16 degrees this morning from windows open over night. House now closed up and will be say 22 or 23 this arvo.

Homer - Amen brother, get some real people back on the forecast wording!! Computers ain't got any idea of the subtleties of weather and localities.

Yes - Cricket - how bizarre indeed, crying shame to be ruined by such a localised shower.

Yep, don't blink or you'll miss it! We're so desparate out here we'll take anything as a positive sign - in this case, the existence of rainfall progs below 20deg S!!! In the meantime, the BIG TASMAN HIGH bus is parked.

Min here this morning about 9 degrees. Tonight may be similar - good!! But then the warming creep begins thereafter.

Interesting on Radar that there are about 3 or 4 little thundery cells banging away in a rough line between Kerang (Vic) and Hillston in NSW. Isolated little chappies having a go.
