start of another month, February was a massive failure, but March will be off to an ok start locally, a trough system will reach us thursday into friday enchancing rainfall and storms. Bom forecasting around 100mm at this point. but as we all know, we dont count it until its in the gauge.

forecasts still holding up well from thursday night onwards. just hoping the flow is onshore enough to actually hit us instead of sweeping by 10km offshore.

Latest ENSO Outlook. This is just great news as we head into March.. frown

Likelihood of 2017 El Nino now close enough to 50/50. Makes me wonder if it actually shifted into La Nina.

Looking at www.windytv.com GFS rain forcast most seems to be offshore.

I do take these model forecasts with a grain of salt and I bet it will change as it gets closer to the event.

Nil rain recorded. Still way too hot to work in my shed before 7.30pm without drowning in sweat.

Ants have been building walls in my lawn and we have had a couple of invasions into the house but none of them are wearing floaties so it won't be too much rain if any. Yard full of knobies (small lizards) a couple more snake sightings (another carpet and a common tree snake so that's 4 in 2 weeks). There is a lack of green tree frogs and even my resident cane is looking decidedly sick.

I'm getting as toey as a roman sandal about a cyclone. 6 years since Yasi and nada.

as usual, mother nature toying with us. booming thunder come from the cells to our west, very lightning active. of course the upper flow is easterly so they are going further inland.

Seems all the activity is inland today. Maybe tonight we will get more coastal activity as seems to happen. Alot of times the rain forms at night even though BOM constantly has either rain in morning anf arvo or they say less likely in the evening. If you see those you know it will rain at night lol

also febs stats
Max: 34.4
Min: 23.7
Rain: 224.5mm over 20 days.

On the satellite imagery the higher clouds are moving in a different direction than the lower clouds I think that is called wind shear.

Suns out here. 24.3mm which is surprising considering how torrential the rain got. I expected over 50mm. Then again the creek only rose like half a foot so is consistent with what we got. Gfs forecasts a weekly total of 25mm for me. So unless we get nothing else, I think that latest run is alittle off lol.
