There was quite a rain train there earlier today Mr Sid.
Hence the heavier falls I suppose.

Incessant fine rain and mist here presently with quite strong ENE winds. Low was 13.1C, now 15.8C. About 15mm since 9am yesterday. Seems the wind suddenly turned away from the SE last night, hence the very mild and humid conditions. Frustrating to get the washing dry.

Pretty much the whole of March is looking like a rut of wet weather.
130mm + so far to now at Maitland Airport, and probably substantially more at unofficial weather stations that only record rainfall. (Belmore Bridge got some 500mm of rain during the April 2015 Superstorm, and a lot more than the airport now)
Certainly not complaining though, no airon on, and can sleep like a baby at night.

21.8mm in the 24 hours to 9am, most of that falling in a couple of short downpours around 5.30am this morning.
Currently just some light rain falling and finally the wind as abated for the time being.

The exact opposite of the Bom autumnal prognostication. As expected.

Warm and humid. Mould weather. I think two days since late Feb that there hasnt been precipitation. Might be wrong on that though. Clothes dryer burnin a hole in the pocket. Heck how did mums cope before washing machines and dryers in this kind of weather. And washing for often big families

My mother lives in Killarney Vale, it is always raining down there, almost as soon as I get near the Wyong Road turnoff it is on!
Here it has been pretty constant this month for rain as well.
Luckily we a clothes drying area under the deck, only school clothes go through the dryer.
Still quite unusual for a hot dry Feb not to be followed by a hot dry March, esp during an El Nino. A complete turnaround for sure.

There looks like a few storm cells developing up around the Barrington Tops at the moment moving south,it is sunny here and very humid,just a few cumulus clouds around, moving down from the NE measured 15 mms last night.

I just have had to chuckle to myself over these past 3 or 4 systems when every time the BOM put the word 'thunderstorm' in the forecast the chances went to 0% ( which everyone and blind Freddy could see wasn't happening ) and on a couple of occassions when they didn't include that " dirty " word in the forecas, that's when something actually did fire up around the metro area...... how can they get that so wrong so many times? !!

Can see some CU to my NW. Must be from those small cells out towards Richmond.

No sign of any CU activity to my north or more importantly due to steering winds to my NE. frown

Unable to edit my post.

It's a summer's night with 23.8C and 98% humidity, would be very surprised if it dropped below 23C tonight. In fact it's almost certain to be the hottest March night on record for Albion Park. Beating 22.0 should be very easy.

I'll down a bottle of straight vodka if it drops below 22C.

Looks like another decent cell headed this way at the moment. It's severe warned and just SW of Quirindi headed straight this way. Will be interesting to see if it makes it.

I can't believe it. we dropped below 22C, getting down to 21.9. I think the mostly clear skies helped it get so low.

I was so sure it wasn't going to drop that far with almost 100% humidity at 24C.

The Obs Hill minimum looks like being 23.7C. That would have to be up there with the highest minimums we've had this late in the season
