yuk at today's weather. Tripe is pretty much the word I'll use, however there was a nice turbulent sunset which made a good end to the day. I feel a bit better about that poke

If there's any remote possibility a storm will form, it will have to form in clear air after that cloudband moved away. I think I'm ready for winter soon Anyone else agree?

Welcome jack frost

Got to a tad over 37 degrees hear today. Cloud started to get threatening but bombed out, even towards the back edge of the cloud band where usually something leaks from the sky.

Not seeing any thundery showers tommorow morning IMO from my observations, so another rainless system drifts on by.
Will have to start looking around mid march onwards before anything stimulates our senses.

The bonus of all these weather systems that arn't producing, is that at least it's keeping the 40+ temperatures away,,, but we still have march to deal with,, and most of us will remember a few years back , the canning scorcher that near on melted our state for about a week.

For those in the mid north and riverland, i'm sure you've had your 40's to deal with,, but at least your getting storms / showers.

Neither of that today/this evening. Some nice stuff off to the east however, though no sparkies and a beautiful sunset to finish the day.

Nice pics there Helen. I also captured the sunset tonight from my mate's house at Summertown, but that image of yours just puts mine to misery poke At least the camera came in hand for something....

It's incredibly wet smelling out there at the moment. I was almost tempted to ask mum if it had rained at some stage during the evening when I got home!

Yep, just as I thought, there's plenty of the old cumulonimbus immaterialus out there, drifting slowly under the moonlight. I like that last pano Helen.

Went outside this morning, to observe low cool change cloud, and no rain or drizzle. With the temp around 22.4 degrees, it is a very pleasant coolish morning.

One could easily milk some hope from this next band of cloud. Virga will tease us later today and maybe, just maybe somebody might get a sprinkle / shower, but take a number in the potluck draw.

nope nothing for Adelaide today WG. The cloud atm should break up during the morning, possibly leaving a little mid level stuff particularly to the north. The band of cloud out west will slide SE but possibly give the west coast a shower or two.

In regards to storms today to the north, looks pretty marginal to me at the moment, but the band of mid-level cloud currently across from about Ceduna to Renmark keeps it interesting. BOM actually have isolated thundery showers after midday NE of Murray Bridge-Coober Pedy. I doubt we will see something as south as Murray Bridge.
Aviation has ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING NE OF Whyalla/Lameroo FROM 02Z. Which I think is probably more accurate as I cant see anything happening south of about Snowtown-Eudunda.

I will again re-assess at about lunchtime & then head out if it looks interesting. Thorpey - my offer still stands... wink

Certainly moist enough outside for something... bit of virga in the air this morning giving a nice rainbow to the sunrise (see below).

Current temp 29C, RH 54% and DP 19C... best that's been for awhile.

Off to the big smoke to shop, shortly but will not be wasting any time to get back home. wink

Well Timmy, oh desert lord, you are far far too kind. I really have responsibilities today that are hard to get out of, but I must admit its tempting. A nice drive through the countryside is never a bad thing. Though to me its a still a little marginal south of Port Augutta to Pinaroo and then it strikes me as shallow sort of stuff that while visually pleasing in the right light at the right time of day is barely worth a few hundred KM drive to see a striated rain shaft over red desert or mallee sand and maybe an elusive crack of white light in a totally "unphotgraphical" fashion. Potentially nice imagery, but a bit too "potentially" when I really really have other work that "should" be done???
And yer that sat is interesting. Its in the right spot at least........ But....

Edit - should add that some nice piccies from you Helen, been a bit prodigious lately young lady. Half ya luck.

yes I agree Tim - it's a tad too marginal to justify it really...
The drive is really probably the tempting factor... I found that Nhill drive to be a soul cleanser lol, I just needed it, even though we didnt get 'great' storms out of it... it was just nice to 'get out there'.

shoulda' come down to horsham tek, coulda' shown you
how it's done. poke
i got some crazy video but being avchd i can't process
it until i get my new comp and so can't post it either.
one day soon i hope.

bloody 'toys', i got enuff of the damn things to half
fill a semi trailer. (commpulsive hoarding disorder)
they are normally known as an aspirated psychrometer
and as long as they are not a cheapie are more accurate
than a non-aspirated wet and dry bulb.
below is a pic of one of two units i have, slightly
different to yours it has a clockwork mechnism that
you wind up at the top with a centrifical fan that
sucks air up the central tube which is split at the
bottom to draw air past the two thermometer bulbs.
one bulb has a cloth around it that you have to wet.
the tubes around the bulbs are heavily insulated on
the inside to prevent any effects of radiant heat
from the metal shields.
the thermometers themselves are highly accurate
laboratory grade to the point each thermometer is
serial numbered and graduated and easily read to
within a tenth of a degree.
the conversion chart supplied with the unit is very
ordinary and does not do it justice so i use a set
of BOM aspirated psycrometer tables.
this is one of my calibration instruments for both
temp. and humidity sensors.
remember, the conversion tables for wet and dry bulbs
are not suitable for use with aspirated psychrometers.
having said that, most back yarders don't require or
demand the degree of accuracy i insist on..........
(considering my own weather station is a complete
clustertruck, a bit like a mechanic with his own car)
i picked 3 units up at a surplus store quite cheap years
ago but they are expensive little suckers to buy outright.

Morning all smile

I wouldn't be ruling out any thunderies near Adelaide just yet, lots of moisture out there & a couple of troughs to help things along also, we will go for a drive to Murray Bridge for lunch that will soon paint the accurate picture

possibly storm deprived, looking outside there is some reasonable accass now to the west, but anything that does form will be pulsey and mainly in the north as Tim E said smile

Sky does look a bit hazy too outside?

Well at least something is happening in SA today. The usual suspects, Burra and proximities, as usual. although a bit out in "no persons land", as usual. Early days. grin

I'd be interested in knowing others' thoughts as to why there is no BOM radar at Broken Hill or any Inland area of NSW. This is a huge area that has no coverage, yet in terms of the importance of this area as far as the Murray-Darling catchment i feel it should have a high degree of importance??? (and the fact there are great storms through there!) Others thoughts

Thanks for everyones kind welcoming.A few cells trying to develop to the north of here(no persons land).Which is nice as i have a great view out that way.Don`t really need any storms as I have to go out grape harvesting tonight.It`s a pitty that there is no radar at Broken Hill, as some of these summer storms would look very impressive on a radar.We get our best storms when they come in from the north east.
