Another nice sunny day here, easterly breeze and cloud still on mt Horrible. The east wind came up quite fresh last night but dropped down again by morning. 20 degrees here.

Wazza - good luck with that. Sadly no jobs going here that I know of. I only work here, don't own it.

PM me if you look like cruising out this way anytime. Be good to meet smile

Yesterday was fairly warm out here, I was sweating like mad doing some shovelling in the yard I can tell you.

The breeze cooled late in the day but it was 26 or 27 during the day, full sunshine.

Quite a cool morning Sunday morning. Saturday also about 26 or 27 degrees and full sun.

Mount Horrible - interesting name. I suppose if the area were ever to be "developed", the developers will come up with a new name. Looks like there's a locality North of Lithgow, but no actual mountain.

So far looks like a repeat of yesterday here, early sunny breaks then solid overcast. There were a few periods of drizzle and light rain yesterday, mostly evening, adding up to a millimeter at Chatswood.

These 'marine layer' days, with little or no sun and little or no rain, with the temperature stuck at or near that of nearby oceans all day and all night, are my least favourite feature of Sydney's climate. On the Satpic it now looks like the cloud is shrinking and breaking up.

There's also a Mt Horrible up near Werris Creek (South of Tamworth)

Mt Horrible here is one of 3 major "peaks" visible to the east of Bathurst. An obvious "Mountain Range" running northish southish.

Horrible is the northern most one of the 3.

I always think it's funny that out here where real estate agents are thin on the ground we have Mt Horrible, in town they have Mt panorama and Mt Pleasant estate. Mt horrible is on the northern end of the winburndale ranges which run from Yetholme up to the Turon river. The range is a plateau around 1200m altitude.On my end you can drive up Mt horrible rd from Limekilns, a bit hair-raising if it has been snowing.

I like that drive up and over Horrible to Palmers Oakey & Upper Turon. Thence on to either Capertee or with a proper 4wd downstream to Sofala.

I was curious that Mt Horrible area some years ago when negotiating to buy a farm on Mr Vincent near Running Stream, which is good basalt country with good rain. Most of the Upper Turon, while getting reasonable rain, is rugged and has very infertile soil, which is why it has never been “developed”. Had the real estate agents wanted to sell it, they would have named it ‘Paradaise Lost’, or ‘Mt. Spectacular’.

The upper turon is certainly very rugged - lots of 4wd crashes there over the years. It's actually in a bit of a rainshadow, though the average looks good, they can go for long spells without good rain. Also the skill of the farmers around there is not as good as better farming areas, it is often overgrazed and under-fertilised, so the soil looks worse than it really is. And in places where it has been mined the soil can be pretty bad, lots of subsoil brought to the surface.

Funny, unusual and bizarre Australian place names:
Funny and Unusual Australian place names

I think that Cock Wash in the Adelaide Hills (just up the road from the Bird in Hand Winery), Burrumbuttock near Albury and Mount Buggery, near Mt Buller in Victoria, would definitely be renamed if they were ever developed.

It cleared around lunch time in most of Sydney, although some cloud still lingers on the North Shore as it often does. It's still cool for a sunny day this time of year. 850 temps are still only around 7, but will quickly warm in the next 12 hours. Also, seas off Sydney cooled to below 20.5 after spiking at 23 a few days ago.

A warm one tomorrow.

Inshore sea temps all the way down the NSW coast have been menaced by what looks like widespread upwelling. Byron is barely above 20 whereas normally you would expect about 25 by now.

The BoM ocean current forecast charts suggests this will revert back to normal over the next week. I'll believe it when I see it.

Yes Steve I'm sure they would be renamed if they were developed. Same as Cockburn and Tittybong. On the way to Bathurst one day, I saw a road called Curly Dick Rd and laughed quite hard. I think it was near Lithgow.

Personally my favourite area in Canada would have to be Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump.

There is a village in Austria named "F*cking" which a former work colleague of mine visited. Bizzare.

lol.
Has anyone been to the town in Norway called "Hell"?

I've sent a postcard from Hell, in 1991, to quite a few family members.

There's a banjo Patterson poem "Hay, hell and Booligal". Hell is meant to be an alternative name for the One Tree Hotel.

I saw a beach in Spain called "Poo Playa"

Banjo's "Hay, hell and Booligal" title was derived from the old English catch cry: "Hull, Hell and Halifax".

The 10 day run of models is absolutely fascinating. A pretty big draw of heat from the NW and once again it looks like it will easily push east as we get high pressure systems at lower latitudes than usual. The main thing is the winter like synoptics with a couple of deep lows in the southern ocean and a classic wintery cold front around the 29th. The negative SAM seems to be the biggest driver of our climate atm, since IOD and SOI are around the neutral area.

In fact, the current ACCESS 00z chart for the 27th could easily be mistaken for a winter synoptic chart and if I was given that chart at random, I would guess that it was captured in winter. The only give away that it's summer is the southwards extention of the red thickness line and the blue line being so far below Australia.

Sydney will bake between Christmas and the New Year while Melbourne sits in the chill- at least for some of the heat event

Curly Dick Road exists indeed and leaves the Great Western Highway (southwards) at Meadow Flat (between Mt Lambie & Yetholme) smile

It's gunna be very warm west of the divide next week.

The only baking I see for Sydney will be of the kitchen kind. I see strong to gale force sea breezes and massive coastal up-welling.
