While they don't get cool changes over there and the like, their summer weather is consistently cool and sunny or cool and cloudy/foggy. The summer temps on the coast only average about 21C as the waters are cool. This warms considerably to an average max of about 29C at LA though. However it is a different story in October and November where 30+ degree heat reaches the coast.

Greg - that donut hole finally closed a bit. Nice to finally get a decent drop indeed.

That may mean a elevated long bridge across the Hunter Floodplain. Unless there is better undeveloped ground to the east between Stockton and north of Raymond Terrace. It is not my area so I honestly do not know.

Yep, coastal California is bizarre. I have been to LA several times, mostly it is very boring weather, with a very pronounced lag in seasons.

Almost typically as the plane gets within 200-300km of California coast a 'porridge skin' cloud pattern starts to show over the ocean and persists right to the coastal ranges - with LA underneath.

However I have the good fortune to be there a couple of times when weather broke the mould. In a August 1985 trip the LA weather was a textbook dull overcast, but as I went down to San Diego a tropical influence moved up from Mexico and it rained all day. The locals were buzzing about it.

When I went there in September 2015 with the family it was another period of tropical air, but this time no rain, just 35-39C dripping with humidity.

Yes it's been raining here all morning, 16mm for 9am, in the last half hour it has got fairly heavy, first decent fall since early november for me. Should be enough to get the creek running again.

Clouds heavy enough that my new satellite internet stopped working, am back on ADSL for the moment, hoping that doesn't cut out as well like it did in November.

Steady light rain started here around 7am and has continued steadily since with occasional heavier bursts. The gauge is quickly closing in on 50mm.

My suspicion was correct - the number in the database for the 15th is 20.7 and it is flagged as suspect.

If Sydney was using a midnight-midnight day at that time like they were supposed to be, then a max of 20.7 on the 15th is inconsistent with a min of 21.9 on the 14th (since the midnight temperature on the 14th/15th will be less than 21.9, or more than 20.7, or possibly both). However, the way in which the "midnight-midnight" day was actually implemented in practice was a bit inconsistent, and if there's a problem I think it's more likely to be with the min than the max. I think it's highly likely that the 20.7 is a valid daytime max, and a valid max for a 9am-9am day, making the 24.6 degree drop from the 14th legitimate.

Thank you Blair.

* * * * * * *

This event probably needed its own thread, heat followed by a cold, wet spell. Total rain around Sydney for the event so far is about 25 to 40mm. The radar shows a big yellow blob of rain to the West. It looks to be heading for Western and Southern Sydney and the Illawarra.

Not bad for a first time effort DaveM!! Nice way to kick off your Orange sojourn. You'll love it here I'm sure. Rain has continued with occasionally moderate to heavy bursts. Definitely put paid to any cherry picking today!

The wife and I are more than likely moving to Oberon after the new year smile!

The rain has been abundantly heavy here since yesterday morning. I don't have a rain gauge but I suspect it's in high 50mm's.

Summer so far has been rather chill and wet. If this weather pattern keeps up, for the snow lovers I think this means very good news for next Winter smile!

Careful O/R there's DaveM and DavidM grin

I think David & I had brief discussion about our names a couple of years back smile along with DavidG smile

Wazza - well done mate, reckon you will love that. Got work there yet? Looking at in town? or out?

Rain here a bit over 30mm since yesterday evening. Still raining a bit but should stop soon I reckon.

A couple of storms building behind it though in a rough line east of Bourke & Cobar, on track to maybe get down around this way in several hours time.

Thanks for that link, very interesting.

As for the south of Sydney, the Princes Hwy at Albion Park is one major bottle neck still.
