Me too. Would be even better to get it all in a one hour storm.

Sydney now expecting 19-37mm, Bathurst 28 - 50.

GFS is now showing a proper cold outbreak at the start of calendar Winter. We shall see, it may vanish in the next run.

Ohhh the rain is coming, you could feel the chanve in weather yesterday afternoon with cloudy and moderate easterly. Winter where are you? Tropical absolutely tropical and it's great.

Good picture Eddy.

I saw some convective cloud about yesterday morning as I drove across Sydney to an appointment in Bass Hill. The sky looked a bit like it often does in February, a watery sky, hazy with small to middle sized cumulus clouds. Didn't see any rain.

It was warm night on the coastal strip, didn't drop below 17-18 all night at coastal stations. The sea temp off Sydney has been close to 21.0 in recent days, slightly above the average of 20.7: MHL SST Sydney. At these places the record will show yesterday's 9:00AM reading as the minimum, e.g. an unremarkable 14.8 at OH.

Was surprisingly warm at tennis last night. Quite sweaty in shorts and polo shirt.

Nice to be back at tennis after a couple of months off with a solid bout of knee-monia. My fitness levels though deserted me terribly in that time off. frown

A bit of very light precip this morning. Enough to just moisten the ground but possibly not measure.

Very mild overnight.

Thanks Steve777

My minimum of 14c also occurred at 9am yesterday morning where as most of the night the temp was around 16-17c mark.

2.5mm in the 24 hours to 9am.

Some useful falls in the West of the State, including 42mm at Hay Airport, 34mm at Hillston, 40 at Louth (on the Darling downstream from Bourke). Falls seem to have been fairly patchy, however.

There's been a bit of light rain here. Radar shows showers moving down from the North, nothing much near Sydney at this stage apart from a big blob out to sea.

They are very good numbers Steve. For Hay, that 42 took them to about 114 ytd. So 42 in one hit is an enormous fall in their context smile

We have at least 2 and possibly 3 distinct layers of cloud building or coming through here now. It FEELS like it will rain, not OVERLY convinced by the LOOK but as more and more low level cloud develops it will look better.

Quite a slow build it seems.

Darker and heavier looking to my NW as I would expect as it slowly wanders across.

I really look forward to some RAIN, it will be nice to smell, hear and see smile

Its been dry the last hour or so, but the Noreaster is still hammering in and considering all this cloud about the temp has managed to crack the 20c mark.

And some people never learn on the roads in wet weather!!

The lightest of little spits outside at the moment, can just feel it on skin.

However - can clearly see more promising cloud for perhaps light showers almost on me.

Lower level cloud really increasing now.
