It was looking like it was going to be an okay day. My mate was actually surprised it wasn't raining today (finally a friend that likes weather!!), but it started a couple of hours later and went on for hours, although very light stuff from the west. Boring.

I'm so over the rain, thank god we got that storm yesterday. Nice pics Donzah, I'm a bit envious of the ones at the lighthouse overlooking South Beach as I was going to go there to watch the storm. And best storm of the season huh? You mustn't have got that one on Feb 18th. I got 2-3cm hail that day.

Under 20C now. Positively chilly. The warmth with so much humidity can bugger off since it has well and truly overstayed its welcome. Dry heat (or cold) is most welcome though. Dry and 5C or dry and 45C, I don't care as long as its not sapping humidity.

It was a mainly dry day today with the temp reaching 24c, southerly change this morning was rather weak. just had a shower go through about an hour ago dropping a quick 2.0mm.

Here is a pano from yesterday's storm.
This shelf cloud was moving in the opposite direction to the main core of the storm, core of the storm is above Tomaree Headland, econd peak left hand side of pic.

Great shelf cloud Eddy.

That's a strange landscaoe. It looks like a desert but I suppose it's a wetland. I think I recognise the Port Stephens headlands.

I see that DaveM is getting a bit of rain.

After a mostly cloudy morning, it's been raining here since about 4:00PM, varying from drizzle to "heavy enough to break out the umbrella". It's probably added a to about 7 or 8 mm.

Yeah nice capture Eddy, I can't quite work out where it's taken from, certainly a place I've never been. I'm guess it's between Karuah and your place, maybe near Pindimar I suppose.

Bit of rain from the west, not much but it's moving over. Funny how we get rain from the west but Bathurst etc doesn't get it from the east. Probably to do with cloud bases since this would likely be mid level precip rather than low level which always occurs from the east.

Thanks guys, the pic was taken on the south side of Tea Gardens obviously looking towards the bay, between the Port and the town is a fairly large area of wetlands, mangroves & reeds.

15.5mm in overnight rain, starting to get a little over it, this wet period!!

Well that's unusual - a sunny morning.

Sydney Airport is tracking at about 4 hours sunshine per day for the month so far, about 33% of the possible total*. I'm actually surprised it's that high, although the North Shore has probably been cloudier.

One feature has been that when the sun does make an appearance, it's normally been afternoon, with maybe a few sunny breaks in the morning.

I see that the rain must have continued into the night, with another 5 mm after midnight.

Anyway, looking forward to some sunny days ahead - they'll return eventually. In the meantime, some deciduous trees are starting to turn. On some, like those near Centennial Park, leaves are just shrivelling and turning brown, but others are showing flecks of proper Autumn colours.

(* Similar to Edinburgh's annual average)

Hello all - Yes Steve, another 5 or 6mm overnight of gentle rain. Gee it was nice to hear.

Mostly sunny this morning, looking for a top of around 22 degrees, pleasant breeze - lovely.

This rain over the last week has been so appreciated out here. It's setting up farmers & graziers nicely for Autumn and then a good leg up for winter. smile

Great photos Eddy & Donza grin

Was mostly sunny earlier and very pleasantly crisp in the wind. Headed to the beach and went for a walk and took a few photos while there was some sunshine. Unfortunately it's beginning to cloud over. It's one of those common days where the cloud will keep building until it's fully cloudy and/or raining.

150mm has fallen here this month. Nothing to the 507mm at Katoomba, only 50km away as the crow flies. Even so, as DaveM mentioned, this is a marvellous autumn break; and such a contrast to the terrible dry at this time last year. The poor BoMís rainfall outlook for March is looking like my stock market picks - completely wrong.

Another round of rain is likely here on Saturday before a burst of very warm weather early next week.

Another coastal shower. Spun the wheel and took a chance to use the clothesline (a novelty of late). And a sneaky shower wets everything. This weather is giving me a serious case of the poops. I am with WR. Give me cold or hot and dry. This humid wet crap has gotta go

Well that sunny morning didn't last long. It closed in from late morning, with some moderate showers around lunch time. Since then it's been cloudy with the occasional light shower. Well, I suppose this Southerly has to generate enough cloud to block out the sun until that cloud band West of us makes it over here and/or the next trough can get going.

You guys want warm weather? - come out here for some sunshine - 28's, 29's & a 30 in my forecast from Sunday for the next 3 or 4 days.

Yes Rob very warm few days for this time of year. Given the solid intrusion of cooler air from later next week - finally it should be our last high 20's days.

Hopefully temps will then re-set to the 20 to 25 degree mark for here before starting to slide a little lower over following weeks. smile
