Knotty - that Tumbi/Mingara stretch is complete rubbish at the moment and will be for a while sadly. Not too bad sneaking from BB through The Enty and over the bridge though.

Nice breeze here this morning - mostly blue skies.

Equinox is creeping up on us. Next week. smile

Well I may have missed out on the storms these past few days but we did finally get some decent heavy downpours late yesterday arvo and early this morning, recorded 41.5mm in the 24hrs to 9am.
Event total 41.5mm so far.

Should the dates on this thread be extended?

A big tree fell on a bus in 2015 (IIRC) and killed the driver along that stretch as well.

Drove it on a really windy day last winter with twigs falling everywhere and a branch fell on the other side of the road as we were passing- won't be doing that in gale force winds again.

PS: 77mm at Mt Boyce and 0mm at Bathurst. What an amazing difference.


Know that road well, and some of those trees at the Robertson end are very tall.

Trivia - that small 20km stretch from Roberston to Moss Vale drops around 600-800mm of average annual rain from the Robertson end to Moss vale .

My interpretation of the models is that this wet, troughy pattern continues into the weekend, with fine weather early next week. Maybe we should change the end date to the 19th.

Overcast with occasional showers and a couple of sunny breaks here. The Sydney area had a lot of rain last night, with many centres recording over 50mm to 9:00.

No sign of Autumn yet. I don't know what we call this.

I also reckon the title could be adjusted slightly to include the severe storms yesterday and Monday in particular, maybe something like, "Upper Trough with Thunderstorms and possible ECL- 13-19 March".

Wow that's all. I thought the annual rain would've been over 1000mm there and even close to 2000mm just east of Robertson, around Mt Murray/ top of Mac Pass.

Never ending rubbish started 15th March last year. Onshores, heavy rain and flooding.
Its a bit earlier this year.

Seems typical weather for coastal NSW at this time of year. Isn’t March - April Sydney’s wettest period?

We got 28mm over the past 2 days – not bad considering the forecasts had this area on the margin of this event (as usual). It’s turned into a good autumn break here with a nice flush of green pasture. Mount Boyce’s 89mm to 9am is pretty amazing – but they need it in that sandstone country – very poor soil that soon dries out.

It is typical and that's what is annoying. June is the wettest month, then March, followed by April, May and February. These are all quite close together, so the wettest month would probably change year by year but in the long term, June is clearly wettest.

PS: Glad you got some grass growth, it's important for high altitude areas because the grass stops growing for a while in the cooler months.

Rob - well done on the 28mm. Shows why the Oberon region is so well known for picking up moisture from both westerly & easterly quadrants. smile

Yeah don't think it will be long before the first warning to be issued for the Bellinger!!

Radar and Satellite suggesting we might get a good drop later on today.

Speaking of good drops, time to head to the shops before the rains hit.

It's actually spitting here - coming from the East - a rare event indeed.

Radar shows it will likely dissipate over us.

Well that was actually a quite pleasant and quite soaking shower for 10 minutes. Gone now but everything wet. Felt good to get some rain on my skin grin

Pretty humid here with 25C/20DP and random showers floating in from the NE.

Meanwhile 32C at Melbourne, 31C at Hobart and 35C in Adelaide. It is pretty common to have pretty opposite weather to those places though. In our very hot Jan and Feb, Melbourne was struggling to get really hot days and Hobart was quite mild.

Some decent blobs on the Radar thats for sure.
Whats the SST at the moment?
That's half the reason I feel for this time of year being so moist.
Warmest SST and some wandering upper level lows.

Am actually hopecasting it will be over by Saturday. Jamberoo is planned
