Sorry for double post -
With load shedding in SA do we share the pain a bit?
Like take turns which suburbs are turned off?

Regards,

Back in business here too Red. Electricity has made me so soft.

Respect to those who lived off these lands for 40 odd thousand years before us.

I'll stop spamming the thread now.

Nah the wick has just dried out.... same thing happened earlier today at Kent Town when everyone went crazy over the 'feels like 62C' rofl....

Loxton's DP would be about the same as others, eg. Renmark's

Tomorrow is a tricky one. Hotter air aloft at 850hPa, but weak sfc trough will push north during the mid to late morning turning winds w then sw to s gradually freshening into the mid afternoon. Will be an early max for Adelaide probably, if the change is even one hour late, 44C is a real shot. I'll go for 43C given the very hot air up top atm. 31C 850hPa temps over Port Aug area tomorrow arvo and a N wind....they are a real shot at 48C (probably rounded). Other usual spots to be watched as well (Kyancutta, Tarcoola, Renmark, Whyalla, Mildura). Roseworthy might crack 45C before the change.

Still 35C at Noarlunga where sfc inversion cannot form properly due to the topography.

TS cool

33.6C at Mt Lofty at 1am, hottest place in Adelaide, of all places! Even Melbourne is getting in on the action with numerous 30C plus readings there, after missing out on summer thus far. Ofcourse, the disgusting cold outbreak on Sunday will sort them out.

31.0C on my PWS, low so far 30.6C. 33.6C at 1:30am in Mildura shocked

NSW Outback has some truly epic readings, including 36.9C at White Cliffs, 36.8C at Tibooburra, 36.6C at Fowlers Gap. Pure 100% legendary

Today will be an epic day.

Whoa shocked all the fours 44.

I wonder if they'll upgrade it at 5:20? I know it's only three degrees but those are some very significant degrees.

I'm keeping my expectations contained.
Pretty sure the very marrow in my bones will sublimate out of my face at 44c.

Looking forward to it. If it's going to be hot at least give us marrow sublimation via face.

this is gunna evaporate any water we've got over the last
few weeks real quick. well it is summer anyway, 'bout time
we got a size 12 up the backside, we've had it too good
for too long this summer.
RS, it's warm down there for you, you be rolling in it
like the proverbial farm dog in.......
bit cooler for you tomorrow though while the rest of the
state gets cooked bar certain coastal areas.
an increase in DPs is on the menu so the uncomfortable
factor is going to ramp up.
my aircon will run all night at a sizzling 23°
sparrow fart start for work tomorrow and an early minute
or 60 to go home. better than a slap in the face with a
dead fish.
yer TS that change is going to be a life saver of sorts,
GFS has it running right over adelaide on the 7.30 map
and on the 10.30 map has it running from bordertown to
the iron triangle across to kimba and off to ceduna-nullabour.
the biggest problem is for adelaide it appears it will not
be a gusty change which would induce a rapid cooldown, things
are going to happen slowly or seem not to happen at all, at
least it will cut the worst off the top end.
no power loss here thankfully.

TH

They look like they're hunting to me.
Sorry about the music - put it in when I was leaning towards mating.

Need to full screen HD. Still doesn't do the size of the group justice.

So a swarm on the day of the storm (of the underrated trough Jan.)
And a swarm today.
Maybe I can find some correlations with the weather data.
(Correlate isn't causation I know I know)



While at Mt Herbie on fri this huge dragonfly appeared from the west, circled around me and then continued on its way. Of course then came the rain over the following days including a beaut thunderstorm out Peterborough way on saturday night, which unfortunately I missed due to family commitments. frown

Keep up those fluids everyone smile

BWWAAAHHAAHHAA
good one StL, always wanted to get myself a flying deckchair.
take it easy with the heat mate.

dragonflies come from mudeyes which live in water and are a
sign of a good season as far as rain goes. it's their
breeding season now, like butterflies, dragonflies are the
final winged stage of their lifecycle.

The BOM not sure about the 43 or 44 I mentioned yesterday arvo, they have only gone up by one degree to 42 today. I look forward to seeing the temps rise with slightly less excitement than Galaxyman smile

As I also mentioned a surface trough will cool the coasts down today, hopefully making it to at least Hallett Cove. By mid arvo.

Stay cool everyone, I'll be in a air-conditioned car in-between clients. Between Noarlunga and Parafield Gardens this arvo, likely I'll experience a 10 degree difference between the two at some stage later today.
