There was some late colour here, but it was all confined to the horizon.

It's a cold mostly clear but slightly streaky night with a near full Moon. The cloud that was hanging around about sunset has mostly gone.

I was wondering if we could do with a thread like they have in Victoria: "Discussion of possible events to come". The sort of things that could go there would include indications that appear in the models about 7-10 days into the future, before they become threadworthy - cold fronts, heat, snow, ECLs, etc. Also what might happen based upon indicators like ENSO, Annular Mode, Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO), reading goats' entrails, etc.

If there's support, I'll start one.

I would certainly be in support of it. Though I know some posters here are not keen on the long range model kind of talk.

As a side note, it looks like Camden Ap will fall below zero again as it's already 3 there. Shame it's so windy at Albion Park with 11 degrees but maybe it will die down like it has here with temp of 6.3.

Go for it Steve777

I also like what they have done in the SE Qld/NE NSW day to day thread as a yearly thread!!

Currently 6.4c with cloud cover.

Good frost this morning, we don't get a lot at home compared to the Upper Hunter. (this might be about the 3rd, but missed the other 2 as was not working early morning)
Still only around 2C now.

About -2/-3 here this morning PLUS a big fog which we still have.

Currently still about zero or 1 here. Vis only a couple hundred metres.

Hazy at 50m.

Wow, you could never even comprehend that kind of dry spell happening these days, up there. It's no wonder the millenium drought was one of the worst droughts in history. I remember as a kid having water restrictions here because we could never have water fights. Then of course the 2007-08 La Nina broke the drought and we have had nothing even close to that since. Plenty of water fights since cool

But I reckon the winter we are getting now could unfortunately be the beginning of a severe drought in inland areas. I saw in the Tassie thread that Dave has only had 1.8mm this month and 1mm last month. That's crazy for an area that relies on winter precip from the west.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Minimum of 0.5 here, likely would have been a frost too. Meanwhile Albion Park had a brief min of 2.7 degrees C. Yet another WELL below average night so our current average of about 3 below would still be in tact.

Yes WR - I think some of our "precip" was in fact either frost melt or fog condensation too - we had readings of 0.2 when not a cloud was to be found anywhere smile

Extremely dry out here and we need good rain in August or the rural industries will be in a fair amount of trouble.

Farm dams are lowering quickly in many places, luckily evaporation is very low at the moment.

But in all seriousness, hopefully the tide turns sooner rather than later. Nothing better than seeing a lush green country side in spring!!

Nah they're not great at all.. We are pretty dry as well, only had about half the monthly average for 3 months, but we did have an EXTREMELY wet Feb and March.

I'm sure us coasties would send you rain if we could.

Totally agree re the lush countryside Eddy. When I went to Wagga in early June, the farms were green all the way there. Not sure how it would be now.

Not sure tbh, I would imagine the frost would have killed off the greenness by now!!

Meanwhile its not a real warm day here, cold SW breeze and that cloud and showers are ever so slowly creeping in from the south.

We had 200mm more rain than Bathurst so far this year - but still dry for this area. Chance of a little rain this weekend with a passing front. BoM explains the dryness here:

By end of July we should (on average) be around 353mm.

So far we are a lazy 200mm behind - I think Rob obviously stole that 200 from us smile

Strangely we've "missed" more rain (200mm) than we've actually received (154mm) so far this year!! smile

Somewhere, sometime it will change. Just think - one day again we will be sick of rain smile

Re dry spells, Sydney OH had its first and only rainless calendar month in 158 years in August 1995: 47 consecutive rainless days from July 18th to September 2nd. This followed a dry July in which only 5.4mm had fallen.

The 47 days was the longest dry spell on record at OH, the second longest being about 34 days that has been reached several times.

That August started out cold but finsihed the warmest on record, including a record maximum of 31.3. September was cold and wet, pretty much making up for the missing July and August rainfall, while the Summer that followed was part of the run of cool, wet Summers Sydney experienced in the mid 90s.
