Lucky bugger; looks like we will get well and truly skunked in the Basin unless something develops rapidly. You need it, though- by all accounts, it's been even drier in the Illawarra than here which is unusual.

It's practically all over now and we only got moderate rain. Enough to wet the road and that's about it. I'd be reluctant to put it on my storm tally but I suppose it only just qualifies. There's now a layer of low cloud coating the top of the escarpment.

How good is this, strong W'lys and DP's in the 20s, dont see it often grin

Next weeks mega heat event looking good. This season just seems to keep on giving and giving. HOpefully it means a warm/hot winter, but don't think so as there's usually a balance there. Perhaps a dip in temps in autumn then a heat up in winter would be one possibility.

I prefer my westerlies to be dry since we get enough hot and humid days. I would've taken 40C with 5C DP any day over 36C with 22C DP. I even think that 45C with negative dew points would've been more bearable than today.

For once I'm actually glad that the southerly has come through. It's cool with some peaceful light rain falling. smile

Yeah quagy, I'm not really complaining since something is better than no storm at all. Would be nice to get a great storm but we have to take what we can get in these dry and stormless times.

The only thing these elevated DPs are good for is to quell the fire danger a little bit; a traditional dry westerly would have seen FDI's into the Severe range today on the coast.

Looking forward to that southerly; it should be here within the hour. After a decidedly mild 26th of January, the furnace is well and truly on again as Boris mentioned above. I've created a separate thread for that as it looks to be one of the more significant heatwaves in recent history if models call it correctly.

The precip has successfully dodged us so far frown

Wind in SW, slightly cooler but not a lot.

Oh, look at that!
A nice big red cell pops up near Lake Macquarie while I sit here and get the grand sum of 2 drops.
******* hell.

There are some dark clouds to my NW and a few rumbles, but it looks like it will miss me to the north.

Yep Greg - I think the long line back to NW NSW is going to stay ever so slightly north of us.

A small secondary line to our SW (about 150km away) MIGHT drop something later but I'm not confident.

The change came through here at 4:40pm and within 20 mins the temp dropped from 33 to 26! Beautiful, and as I type the cool(er) wind is blowing in a window and across the keyboard...

The Southerly arrived here about 4:45PM. The sky is now filling up with marine layer cloud, covering up the mid level stuff. I've opened the doors and windows to let it cool down the unit.

There are / have been a few isolated storms about, including the Lake Macquarie and Newcastle areas as well as parts of the Southern Highlands and Illawarra. Some also look to be developing on the mid North coast, and there is quite a chain of active storms beyond radar coverage extending NW from Dubbo.

However, for Sydney and nearby areas, to paraphrase the "Soup Nazi" character in that episode of seinfeld, "No storms for you!".

Raining quite nicely here, moderate rain, tiny drops. Seems more like what we'd get from a onshore shore. Absolutely wonderful. grin

Just touched on 40 today here, which isn't bad considering it was mostly cloudy. Big storm brewed up right over us earlier in the day and then started dropping rain about 2ks south. Literally had 3 drops. Now we have another cell flaring up a couple of k's north...... cant win one here.
Southerly dropped temps but still 31. Winds picking up but not too strong. Does look unstable to the west. really should see a decent drop tonight....but not banking on it.
