Getting a tad nippy
@Grant. See you Greta based. I lived there in 1977. Attended the Telecom training centre there for around 5 months. It was my first winter away from the coast and the frosty mornings were a bit of a shock. A nice period in my life. The elderly couple I boarded with would be long gone now. The old biddy could sure lay on some incredible meals.
Anyway back to the footy burppp.
p.s Haven't seen Homes stick his head in the door for a bit. Hope all ok

I saw Homer online earlier so I'm sure everything is okay but maybe not.

It's a chilly one tonight, already down to 10C but yet 7C at Thredbo Top Station. Shame the humidity and dew points don't come up for that site any more because I bet the dew point is incredibly low to get a temp like that.

Mt Ginini is below -10C dew point with 7C so it is obviously above the subsidence inversion as well as TTS.

Down to 6.4C at Singo at 2320 while at work, and 9.0C at Maitland.
Minimums already been reached.

Yeah Derek it's rather cold tonight, probably not too far from a typical winter's night. 8C at Albion Park but 11C at a local PWS and in fact no PWS in all of Wollongong are below 10, so AP is a bad representation of the whole area, being so flat, low and with farmland to the west.

It's rather cold in Canberra too at 2C, should get below 0 again there tonight. Canberra's Weather should be happy.

Fresh again on the beach this morning. Love it.
Interesting how these inversion thingies work with Thredbo etc well above zero all night but places like Goulburn Canberra below zero.

Last night wasn't as cold as the previous night thanks to a slight onshore breeze.

Going to be a ripper of a day, pity I'm working most of it.

It is indeed very interesting, I remember living in Mawson in Canberra and going to work and the car thermometer would read -2c but by the time I got to the top of Red Hill the temp would be 0c or 1c and once I was at the bottom of the hill the temp would once again be well into the negatives. I don't miss it grin

Disappointing to see Thredders Top not showing the dew point readings. That place is the best site for checking subsidence inversions.

Hopefully it will have DPs back online soon.

And so the great weather rolls on. Low 20's, clear skies, light winds, no complaints.

Three below av days on the trot for this area. Above my expectations. Stinky south easter blowing.

Going to come in as an about average April as far as temps go for the coastal strip from northern Sydney to newcastle. Most of Sydney too. But of course not Obs Hill. Averaged min will be around average. But the averaged max will be above. Time for the OH to be retired. Retire it gracefully Bom.

Bankstown, about 20km SW of the Sydney CBD, will come in for April at or close to 12.3 to 24.1, for anomalies of -0.4 to +0.4, so basically spot on average (1969 - 2016).

OH will come in at or close to 14.6 to 23.8, for anomalies -0.1 to +1.3. A rare negative anomaly for the minimum, but probably the only site coming out so far above average for maxima in our part of the world.

However, if we disregard stats for the 19th and early 20th century, the story's a little different. The April average min/max for OH for 1951-2010 are 15.2 - 23.2, making the 2017 anomalies -0.6 to +0.6, so for the daily mean, April 2017 will also have been spot on average.

And why should we disregard stats prior to 1950? Well, in fact, I believe we should disregard stats for the period prior to a site move in 1917, which bumped up the average Winter max by about 1.5, although it had little apparent effect on Summer averages. Maybe the April average was bumped up by about half that, say 0.7/8.

Lol, they won't retire Sydney OH, even if it is like Nobbys Head at Newcastle, Yamba Pilot Station etc, as a representative spot.
Hell even moving the weather station at Maitland to Maitland Airport in July last year has some question marks over it. (esp with regards to rainfall, and even temps during the Feb heatwave were dubious, despite it being further west).
Anyways, today turned out to be a classic autumn day, 7-23C.
Temps for Mon-Tues, 1-2 May. now upgraded to 25C, may well be our last hurrah for genuine shoulder season weather.
This is the type of classic weather I most enjoy, ie mild-warm, as opposed to extreme heat or cold.

Certainly OH does not represent what most Sydneysiders experience, especially on hot Summer days, although every site has its quirks. OH is warm in a Southerly, the Airport is cool in a Southerly, vice versa for a NE'er. Olympic Park seems to be 'hot', Canterbury 'cold'. Then we have the frosty hollows at Richmond, Camden and Campbelltown on clear Winter mornings.

==========

It's a beautiful, cool, clear crescent Moon night outside. Judging by the forecast minima, the BOM must be expecting cloud.

Dank. Could have sworn I heard a shower around 4am but could be wrong.

Odd sort of a day, some cloud cover and coolish.
Supposed to get to 22C, but now 21.1C and probably won't make it.
Looking forward to the next couple of 25C days, very nice for any time of the year, summer or winter.

A fair chance you did!!

Last night was shaping up to be the coldest of the year here, it 12.1c at 8.30pm but that sea breeze and cloud cover changed that. 11.1c was the overnight low.

Today has been very odd as DerekHV mentioned, quite cool under the clouds, but once the sun comes I was looking for shade!!

These beautiful autumnal days have been just wonderful.
The best part has been that there has been no controlled burning by the RFS.
Therefore these stunning days have not been spoilt by the putrid smell of bushfire smoke spoiling the clear air.

Absolutely 100% agree, we have had some of the nicest weather possible over the last few weeks.

Another low 20's day and I daresay it should be another coldish night. Today did have a fair bit of cloud cover though, unlike yesterday which was magical.

I detected a burn off stink up this way a few days ago. I presume thats what it was. Lasted a few days. Yet another below av day up this way courtesy of some intermittent cloud. So an average April it is. A bipolar April
