Really unusual here in Woonona
Its dead calm, barely a whimper
coolish and grey/ sun mix.
As ozthunder said . Virga and whispy mid level stuff out to sea after that change.
Winds look a bit more southerly down the coast, so we may see a rise in wind speed overnight.

Hmm if it's turning more southerly overnight then we won't get much wind in this area. You will closer to the coast of course. My suburb for some reason is amazingly protected from southerlies. If they stay westerly then a big blow is likely on the way.

Yeah was expecting gusty winds as per BoM forecast, but it's been surprisingly calm on the coast with just a puff here and there.

You can see on the radar , pushing up the coast..
southerlies are never "strong" either around here for long.
The downhill nature of the escarpment promotes wind speed for sure . Hence Dapto always cops a strong westerly.

Certainly was an interesting afternoon here, a couple of thundery showers and once the front hit, winds I guess were about the 70-80kmph mark and the temp dropped from a pleasant 24c to unpleasant 13c in minutes.
Storm chasing was made hard as I was coming back from Newcastle and had to do Mr mum duties!! grin
Made a tactical error once I did get out, went to the river, had I went to the beach I would have scored some nice bolts.
This pic was taken about an hour before the front come through, this cell tried hard to drop a spout or two on a couple of occasions.

Only about a 1mm fell from today's thundery showers by the way.

Here is my video of yesterday's non active storm.

Nice pic Eddy, will get back to ya on the vid though.

Yeah that's exactly it Donzah. I actually live in Horsley and there's been countless times where it has got windier and windier as you drive closer to the escarpment compared to Dapto. But yet tonight home is calm but wind driving into town.

14C temp wow, thought it was a bit chilly. Not overly common to actually get a proper SWer like tonight. Usually westerly or southerly.

Thanks guys.

Wind here is still NW and its still about the 12c(already turned the computer off so I can't check).

I've been watching that fast moving southerly surge up the coast, should get a few showers clip over the Port to Seal Rocks.

Steady SW/S wind here in the gong.

Definitely cold enough today, 14.4C right now and steady.
Had a wintry feel coming home from work last night.
Not whinging though, we had our glut of mild to warm weather.

The cold change certainly has spread throughout the whole state.
Current highest temp is 22.4C on Lord Howe Island, where the change probably hasn't arrived yet.
Places in the Northwest and Upper Western, like Bourke, Moree, Walgett etc, that had screeching summers, would be enjoying this now.
Bourke is only 17C, and even Birdsville, though just across the border, is only 20C now.

Looks like our max was 18.9C at 1400 and again at 1430.
Pretty much on track with the forecast.
At Singleton now, is currently 18.0C.
Places further up the Hunter, like Scone, have only just reached their forecast max of 17C.
