Putting it simply this week is going to pretty much boring as bat poop garden variety benign weather with only 1 day in the low 30's for my neck of the woods followed by another 5 days of mid to high 20's

It makes you think if Mother Nature has any actual interest in boiling us alive this summer like every other year or would rather keep inflicting the pesky storm and marrow boiling killing southerlies on us

I agree. The forecast for Mt Gambier is a giant pile of dung. It's all these stupid bastard ridges that TH mentioned that keep breeding in the bight like a metastatic cancer and send up their southerly fungus ruining any hope of storms and extended hot spells. As far as heat goes, the situation here is obviously far better than in the LSE, but it still affects this area as there has been a distinct lack of "bone marrow boiling" heat and multiple 40C+ days. These ridges have been continually pushing the major heat and storms into NSW and QLD, which is pissing me off, you know, the "what it could've been" factor.

Overall I have been happy with my weather since Christmas, it's been reliably hot with a more humidity than usual. Just the ridiculous lack of storms (unless if you're a freaking Morganoid) and am missing the odd extreme heat outbreak.

Improvement from EC on storm potential for Mid North for thurs. Shifted things maybe 20-30km north overall....less for Adelaide but still decent enough. Deep tropical moist airmass again....things will be interesting on the rain front especially....this is one to watch rather carefully.

TS cool

yes your absolutely correct, but i want to qualify
that by saying there has been the backoff of constant
ridging enough to allow the nw baroclinic infeeds to
give us some pretty amazing setups coming through but
the spoiler is it's like opening the door to let a
group of people in to a party and then slamming it
shut after only a couple get through. constantly, come
on in..slam, come on in..slam and so on. some party.
just remember how crappy it was right up to christmas,
90% cold/wintery 10% heat/storms. i can remember back
in the late 60s when i was in primary school i used
to collect the synoptics off the back page of the
advertiser every day and make flip movies out of them
to try and work out how the wether worked and patterns
in synoptic setups. back then tasman highs were freakin
huge mothers as ugly as godzilla and with the strength
of king kong. they'd park their butt in the middle of
the tasman and stay there for a week sometimes two.
climate change seems to have flushed times like that
well and truly down the toilet.
there have been some good consistant storms but the
best has been from the mid north up and ep, anything
south and east of pt wakefield has had some good
moisture and heat but has missed out on some potentially
amazing situations simply because it no sooner starts
to get cranked up than it gets cleared out and booted
over the border.
i can just see whats going to happen here, the indian
ocean ridge will soon take a turn for the better and
backoff a bit more, highs will move across eastern
australia and park in the tasman for a bit instesad
of just dying off, and some asshole up north will
turn off the tap.

So what you are saying Thunda is that these pesky southerlies of which have been killing off any chance of decent marrow boiling heat and rip snorting/bone breaking storms are going to be banished back to where they belong once the Indian ocean ridge takes a turn for the better

If this is the case then there won't be any need to keelhaul or make any big wigs walk the plank because of hyped up forecasts and warnings for storms that don't eventuate or do happen but died in the butt as significant weather events will actually happen once the ridge turns for the better

Well seeing as things are quiet. I beat the heat last thursday and got up early to catch the full moon setting. I wouldn't have seen it rising at dusk because the sky clouded over as the 'fizzer' of the decade took hold.. This was taken from Nelshaby, nestled in the Flinders Ranges. I'm looking westward across the gulf at the moon sinking behind Port Bonython, near Whyalla.

Geeeeeeezuz, this up coming period of weather is looking like a potentially significant one! especially for northern areas. Rain, predominantly in the form of storms and likely heavy, doesn't get much better.

Hard to comment on any particular day yet, but some potential for multiple good days of chasing. A hellova lota humidity around through northern areas, eventually spreading down. Falls could be massive.

yer looks like the order i put in is going to get
delivered early but as usual there's a caveat,
the whole of s.a. except.....south of and east
of port wakefield, it gets there eventually but
only on the tail end of a massive extended tropical
intrusion and longwave trough. and why is that
you say? huh? what you say? well for those who havn't
figured it out yet i'll give you a subtle hint.....
IT'S BECAUSE OF A SYPHILIS PUSS INFECTED MONGERAL
BASTARD INDIAN OCEAN RIDGE, THE VERY SAME PIECE OF
GARBAGE THAT SCREWS UP EVERY NORTHERN TROPICAL
PARTY WE TRY TO HOST.
all very well for anything north of and west of
pt wakefield, for them it's pardy pardy pardy.
it's the old cliche, location location location
and we dont just live in an economic third world
backwater basket case we live in a climatic one
as well.
if nothing it'll be an interesting watch once i
settle down from my psychotic hatred of the
indian ocean ridge.
plenty of rain to go round too as models show
atm and not just in one lot but two or more.
now where did i put that valium........

i would but forum rules forbid it.

Je, TS is right and i made that very clear in the first
thing i said on the previous page, my answer to your
question is in that post so far as it was my intention
to qualify and elaborate on what TS said so far as it
is 'one' of the 'least' ridgiest, that doesn't mean a
no ridge summer,(praise the day that should ever
happen). the short answer is it doesnt differ. i've
said all this before in previous posts on this and
previous page, the long answer to your question lies
there.

I was chatting to a farmer at Jamestown yesterday and he was lamenting the fact that his crops had already been wet three times. Today might see conditions unsuitable for harvesting with the heat and a northerly blowing and then looks like we'll be wet again. It aint over until its in the silo if indeed it gets there frown

I'm feeling the temperature rising again eek .
Can we have a cool and in-depth analysis of Thursdays weather here please?
I think it's going to rain but that's the depth of my forecast analysis.
