7.4 for Seacliff Park to 9am today. Nice little surprise there. 26.9 for the month, not too bad.

Does anyone have the ability to track back on a wind gust that went through Seaford somewhere around 4.30pm today. I would guestimate it to be around 60-70km/h and lasted about 30 seconds. Came out of no where. Next door neighbours plastic kiddie pool ended up on our roof. We had a block-out blind ripped down from it.
Haven't seen a random gust like that before.

Cheers.

checked radar and vis. sat. for around 4.30pm and nothing
obvious that sticks out, clouds are southerly stream and may
be enhanced by convective influences, nothing out of the
ordinary as far as noarlunga aws goes, freak gust could be
the result of an anomolous short lived rotational clear air
eddy.
seen heaps of them over the years mainly on clear fine still
days when a seemingly gale force wind comes out of nowhere
for about 15-30 seconds and then disappears as quick as it
came.

barely a breath with the lightest smudge of aerosol drizzle,
in these days of autonomous gloom the vis. sat. makes for
interesting viewing but only slightly more than observing
the riveting dynamics of cell division in my front lawn.

well the drizzle disappeared quicker than forum members under
the influence of anticyclonic gloom.
looks likes i'll be talking to myself until at least wed/thurs.
certainly was a good weekend to get outside and put in some hard
yakka around the premises before the weather ramps up to provide
an excuse not to.
all models have a bit of a front next weekend, has the potential
to ramp either way this far out. confidence is high at the moment
as bom are putting it in their media notes already. timing is
tight too between models with from as early as late friday to
as late as late saturday. possible 30 day coming up before the
passage of the front too with the emphasis on 'possible'. currently.......
noarlunga 28
adelaide 29
elizabeth 30
but will only occur with precision diurnal timing on behalf
of the front which will need to be early evening or late
afternoon at the earliest. this far out that timing is as
flexible as a politicians promise.
watch this space for more coffee infused late night dribble......

haha, thanks Pooley, very much appreciated, also to all others
who have posted and PM'd.
it's hard work sometimes trying to do CPR to a thread on your
own while everyone just watches, but it's ok, i can usually
keep posting on the smell of a dusty keyboard.
it's as much therapy for me as entertainment for others.
i 'spose im a bit of a wysiwyg, (pr:- wi-see-wig, with the 'i'
being a short vowel sound), in what i write. i write the way i
think and talk for real, it ain't no trumped up circus just for
the forum.
anyways back to weather......
access and gfs have bought the timing of the change forward to
late morning/early arvo sat.
cmc and ec are still holding with later sat.
the 540 is sharp and narrow and most likely not make it to
adelaide and if it does it will be barely noticeable and
nothing more than a quick jab in the ribs.
big fat juicy nw infeeds have been relegated to the 'annals of
history' so rainfall is looking be bugger all at best,
predominately coastal and once oceanic moisture is cut off fading
rapidly as the front progresses inland.

Slight local convection in the hills today, around midday and into the afternoon.

Also overnight minima have been falling below 5 deg C, while maxima have only fallen slightly. Perhaps a sign of frosts to come, maybe gully winds? The one thing it seems to indicate is a shrinking thickness layer.

Yep trough still hanging around..... I'd suggest might even see some convective showers out of it on EP today.

edit: based on satpic, youd probably throw in Riverland and Mallee with a good chance now as well.... possibly YP.

Definitely YP now smile (1.35 pm) on radar ...

Edit: that's interesting, the ridge south of Adelaide is jamming dewpoints up against the coast.

Not going with the showers on YP, that's been there for ages, there are some controlled burn offs occurring there so it is picking the smoke up as rain echoes.

yer they aren't real echoes on YP. They don't match up with the satpic which is a bit of a give-away.

The Buckland Park radar is scheduled to be off-line from 11 April until late May for mid-life maintenance. For current weather and three-hour forecasts go to MetEye. The nearby Sellicks Hill radar is also available and should be used in combination with satellite images.

Might leave a bit of a hole as Sellicks is next to useless

the 11th of april to late may??? WTF!!
you could build a whole new one in half that time,
more like a mid life crisis.

an interesting facet of the vis sat today is the lack of
any convection directly over lake torrens, gairdner and
eyre. might have something to do with the solar
reflectivity and lack of thermal mixing stifling
cu development......maybe.....
do these currently have any water in them?

ashes to ashes, dust to dust,
the remnants of grain to burn we must
tis the season for clouds on smoke
the business of planting is no joke,
with weapon in hand i chased it down
i didn't give up until it was found,
i couldnt help it i went 'till i got it
i had to keep going until i made score.
and when i found it i shot it and shot it,
and when it was dying i shot it some more
i've got sds bad i give a stern warning,
i love the smell of pyrocu' in the morning.

Maybe if they cut the trees down at Sellicks it would be okay..

I can hear the protest cries about saving those trees at the very suggestion of that!

But yes, absoultely that should happen; I don't see the problem of planting x amount of trees elsewhere for every one cut down, as they do when constructing a new road.

Exactly, but I guess the problem is that the majority of people probably would not care about the radar being blocked.
