Btw I know feet from surfing. 1 foot is approximately 30cm which is 12 inches. PS Steve you're older than I thought. wink


Most guys know inches wink

Yes WR, I'm North of 65.

Re rainfall,
1 inch = 25mm
1 mm = 4 points.

Felt cooler than it was with that wind today. It was a mixture of cloud and filtered sunlight. It feels warm outside now, however.

Unless we get rain before 9:00AM Saturday, most of Sydney will have had a practically rainless September, maybe completely rainless for some sites. OH received 0.2mm on the 14th but no other rain this month. This will be the driest September on record there (old record 2.1), in fact the driest of any month apart from the rainless August of 1995.

I sometimes work in yards rather than metres!!

Quite a mild day considering the lack of sunshine, finished with a rather nice sunset but was unable to take any snaps!!

To convert metres to yards, add 10%. To get more accurate, take off 1% after that.

Another rough calculation: kilometres per hour approx = feet per second (actually 108km/h is very close to 100 feet per second).

I've always thought car speedometers should show metres per second rather then km/h.

60 kph := 17 m/sec
100 kph := 28 m/sec

Typical driver reaction time is about 1 second.

Interesting stuff there Steve smile

Nice cool morning again here, about 4 or so. Lovely sleeping weather. Warms up rapidly once the sun gets up.

The lack of posts at the moment is screaming out how boring the current weather is. It's nice I know, but I'm sure we are all crying out for some action!!
Geez, even I got excited the other day to see a bit of scud and feel a bit of humidity. lol.

You excited by humidity?? grin

Don't worry all the action will probably start tomorrow, I'm on holidays. My track record for a dry holiday is not real good, the last holiday three and half years ago saw about 20 inches of rain!!

It's not often lately CS that we have seen forecast charts like that.
It might up or downgrade.
I don't care.
I just know, that after such a long dry spell like we've had, the heavens will eventually open.
I'm guessing that all the heat lovers will still be complaining in January after we've had a wet November and December, after wishing for some action for the past two months. Lol.

Enjoy your time up here! Nice temps expected -



I must reciprocate and visit Tea Gardens / Hawks Nest and also Nelson Bay etc. one day. Never been to the Port Stephens area (excluding Karuah), as it's inconvenient if I'm travelling that far south because I'm always heading to either Sydney or Canberra. It would have to be on a Newcastle-centric holiday weekender.

Loc: Melbourne (Belgrave); Corryong...
Hi guys! Reporting from Corryong, Northeast Victoria, having arrived from Melbourne earlier this evening. smile

My family and I left home in Belgrave in Melbourne's Dandenong Ranges around 11:45am yesterday.

Due to the fact that it was the AFL Grand Final Long Weekend, there was an awful amount of traffic in the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley. It took until around 12:30pm to leave the Melbourne metropolitan area and to head north up the Melba Highway. poke crazy

Our first stop was around 1pm at Yea for lunch. Roughly an hour later, we drove northwest along the Goulburn Valley Highway to Seymour.

By about 2:30pm we were racing north on the M31 Hume Freeway (Melbourne-Sydney), reaching Albury/Wodonga approximately 2 hours later. It sure felt good to be able to cross the Murray River from Victoria into NSW/ACT yet again! grin

After 45 minutes of resting, shopping and afternoon tea, we continued east along the Murray Valley Highway from the Border to the Upper Murray, arriving in Corryong around 6:45pm. smile

Weatherwise, the day wasn't too interesting but at least it was pleasant enough, and it definitely had a distinct early-springtime feel to the air! smile

It was a generally coolish day which started out mostly sunny, but became cloudier as we left home and headed out of Melbourne. We still had a few sunny breaks though, especially in Yea and Albury/Wodonga. smile

Temperatures were for the most part between 14C and 18C, although at Albury/Wodonga we had a burst of late-afternoon sunshine that pushed the thermometer up to a gloriously mild 19C. Perfect for wearing a T-shirt! grin

Pity it didn't last long, as it became overcast and gloomy the rest of the way to Corryong. No sunset visible sadly. frown

From Koetong onwards, the gathering darkness combined with higher elevation and cloud cover to send the temperature down towards 11C.

It was dry for the most part; only a few light showers skimmed the landscape, mostly around Seymour and nearby Trawool at about 2:15pm; most of these showers didn't show up on the radar. It looked unstable at times but we had no heavy rain or thunderstorm activity.

And hardly much wind either, although it was gusty as far as about Glenburn in the Yea River Valley.

Lush and green for the most part, but severe frosts have killed the grass in some spots here in the northeast. Some warmer weather and heavy rain may help though. smile

Plenty of beautiful flowers and blossoms, and canola fields (especially around Seymour, Benalla and Wangaratta).

Also a bit of snow still clinging to Mount Bogong in spite of last weekend's hot weather, at least from what I saw as I was heading east past Tallangatta this evening. It was too dark to see any snow about the NSW Snowy Mountains btw (as I was driving through Shelley), but the snow reports and web cams are encouraging! smile

And Lake Hume is currently about 91% capacity, according to Goulburn-Murray Waters! And some minor flooding about the region, especially along and near the Kiewa River. smile

Corryong had a few light showers this evening. The gloomy overcast associated with the cold front currently crossing Victoria has disappeared, although there's a bit of moonlit high cloud now moving down from NSW/ACT, in response to the trough over Central Australia to the north/northwest.

The Yarrawonga radar currently shows a band of showers stretching between Albury/Wodonga and Mount Hotham heading this way, so hopefully a couple of millimetres of rain overnight, plus some snowshowers for the Alpine areas! smile

Going to be a cold one tonight, expecting a low of 4C here. Currently around 9C in nearby Khancoban, NSW. smile

Good to be back near the VIC/NSW border once more! grin

Thanks Seabreeze, yes looking forward to my stay, should be there by lunchtime today!!
You will absolutely love Port Stephens, fortunately for TG/HN we are only ten minutes from the highway, where as Nelson Bay is 40 minutes or so from the highway.

Cheers

Hi Eddy,

I've just booked a week at Fingal Bay after Christmas.
I'm sure you'd be up for a beer or three at some stage.
Enjoy your stay at SWR.
BTW, Happy Birthday!!
