This cold change looking solid again, early Saturday morning looking particularly nice so lets hope it holds.


To me the models, aside from having their usual wobbles, look pretty solid. The main issue for me is moisture frown it's woeful.

BTW WR see that temp increase this morning? 3 at 2am and an hour later 11c warmer!

Bit of a surprise this morning, -7.7 in Walcha. Turned the floor heating down yesterday-a bit premature maybe!

Warm at around 20 in Glendale. Not searing fortunately. A little bit of highish coming and going.

Oodnadatta a mild 30. Tipped to challenge the SA august heat record tomorrow. That heat is headed this way tomorrow and wednesday probably.

Looks like it'll only affect northern NSW, and miss most of the rest? Beaut day here, sun and air as warm, little breeze. Currently 21c. Edit - actually make that 22. very pleasant smile

Sunshine filtered through smoke on the North Shore. About 21 degrees, almost no wind. There's a smell of smoke, but it's not too bad. The smoke seems to be mostly aloft.

Smoke is quite bad in the CBD now. You can barely see across the harbour to North Sydney. It seems to be staying down low now.

Really need those stronger winds to hurry tfu and mix down to ground level.

Good old Oodnadatta swelter. 35 today or there abouts and possibly higher tomorrow. Which ever way you slice it, hot temps are headed east. As far as coastal heat goes the mid north/ north coast could get focus. Could be Hunter. Could be Sydney and south. Heat. Smoke. Whatz not to like /sarc

I was working at Cremorne Point today with a clear (lol) view of the city. I couldn't see the top of Centrepoint or the MLC Centre.
The sky was putrid.

I used to be really in favour of controlled burns and tended to write off people who opposed them as greenies/hippies/too precious.

But I think statistically they could actually be more damaging to health than their benefits make up for.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone said to me that all of the controlled burns across NSW might help to prevent, say, 50 deaths over five years. I wouldn't be surprised though if events like today (and a couple of years ago when it was persistent) didn't to more damage overall. It could bring on respiratory issues in a number of vulnerable demographics and probably kills a few old people each time. The number of days of life lost by burning off could easily exceed the number of life-days lost by catastrophic bushfires (and remember that burning off wouldn't prevent all deaths anyway, it's only ever probably at the margin).

Just an interesting thought analysis. Expense and guaranteed, albeit minor for most, harm against possible and occasional more severe outcomes...

Pretty hazy here this afternoon but I think that was salt haze though, not smoke.

Could see a wall of grey out to the NE, looked very smoky.

Felt like an early spring day today with a half decent seabreeze.

PS: I went up to Thirlmere yesterday to see some family and there was a HR burn on the southern side of town on the side of the road. Started getting smoky around Wilton. And has anyone been to Burragorang Lookout? I went through Picton and decided that I was going to go home via Camden but then I saw a sign to Oakdale. Never been there so I went and then saw a sign to the lookout. Park fees applied so we didn't check it out, but the glimpses of the drop-offs from the road looked spectacular.

Instead of controlled burns, they should be investing in better fire-tracking technology.. so that if a threatening fire does eventuate (chances of that happening is slim anyway considering this dry spell will be followed by a wet spell and possibly even flooding) it can be dealt with quickly.

The greater the population increase, the greater the need for housing. The greater the need for housing units that are not vertically stacked, the greater the urban sprawl. This of course leads to a cycle of ever increasing burnoffs to protect properties that are intruding ever more deeply into areas abutting bush. There was a time when limiting population growth was a greenie priority. Not any longer of course. You'd be called a nazi if you proposed immigration limits and and tax penalties for having large families. The driest inhabited continent on the planet was is not equipped for the kind of population the big movers and shakers would like to see. All up, excluding desert and marginal land, the sustainable regions of Australia add up to an area about the size of France. In other words, around 7 million square km of Australian is not suited for high density.

Light rain here now, enough to accumulate some small pools of water, not enough to make any real impact upon our dryness. Looking for MOISTNESS grin

Can't say I was expecting 12.6C here right now with wet roads etc. Could actually be one of our colder winter days of the season, despite having such warm air above.

It's even possible to get a cool day with an inversion and then the night warms to well past 20C or even up 25 as winds pick up and 850 temps warm up to 16 degrees overnight, only to cool back down in time for day break tomorrow.

Just enough spots of rain to make the pavement look freckly!! The smell of rain has that spring smell about it.

Quite mild here despite the lack of sunshine, probably about 18c atm.

Interesting scenario- if it warms up after this cooler air has passed, is it then a warm front rather than a cold front wink

Quite possibly, just trying to think when the last time I saw a warm front on a chart? smile

I remember a discussion with a pretty savvy weather guy who said it happens far more frequently then it's analysed or acknowledged by the BoM.

0.6mm here so far - enough to be annoying but nothing more.
