Great day to be working outside! Heat, Humidity and an occasional 2 minute long shower really works a sweat out of you.

It ended up being about 45 minutes of precipitation. I could hear it on the veranda roof, could feel it on my skin, but I don't know how much would actually register in a gauge.

Now hovering at 39.5C, unless we get a late surge of Northwesterly wind, we may just fall short of the 41C.
Tocal got to 42C.

"Looks" like a bow echo coming off the snowy mountains, hard to say as mountains in way of Canberra radar, and useless Wagga radar does not give true indication.

May know better as it gets off ranges?

Sun's breaking through, although filtered through thin cloud, after an absence of about 4 hours. Temps in Western Sydney are on the move, up to 34-35. It also looks like the seabreeze is being pushed back, at least South of Bondi.

The 'bow wave' - that roughly Boomerang-shaped chain of storms moving South of the ACT? It seems to be dispersing.

Looks like our peak was 40.1C at 1520.
Other than that our December record minimum will be set tonight at Maitland Airport (based on 1 month data), as it is forecast for 25C.
Average max for the month so far is 31.4C, and 31.6C at Tocal (not a record), which will go up again after tomorrow.


Edited by DerekHV (30/12/2016 18:19)
Edit Reason: extra average max

30.1 here still.

Bathurst AP webcam starting to show that line of storms approaching from the south west. I'm hopeful (but not confident) of a rumble or two later on.
This trough seems to be very slow moving eastwards. I'm just not sure how much firepower it will contain overnight.

I don't want to jinx it but our prospects for stormage along the coast are looking fairly decent. We haven't had a setup so favourable to the coast yet this season. No inversion, hot but humid as well. And for once we actually have WIND in the mid levels.

There's been a Severe Thunderstorm Warning during the afternoon for a broad band of the state extending from the South Coast to the far NW of NSW (and the storms probably don't stop at the Vic, SA and Qld borders like the map says). The BOM shift the band to the North East every couple of hours and are forecasting possible late / possible early storms overnight, so we might be woken by thunder.

I don't want to jinx anything as well WR but the no inversion thing has got me thinking as well..

30mm in 10 minutes is a serious downpour!

The way the storms are showing on the radar west of parkes implies they are pretty significant storms. Just a matter of how far east they get.

Solid 2 storms here at the olds place in Vincentia, Jervis Bay (which is a few km's SE of Huskisson on the radar). First storm rushed up from Ulludulla on dusk. Numerous CG's and 1 flang, a few solid gusts and a quick fire 30mm. Second storm followed hot on its heels and came in from the NW but died as it approached. 5mm and a nice light show. Awesome way to end a muggy day. Hoping that Bathurst scores tonight.
