As noted by Gringos and something I've been keeping an eye on, majority of models are going for another combo deep surface trough combining with upper trough/low to produce widespread instability across NSW from late this week and well into next week.

Inland NSW should start to see showers, storms (possibly severe) and rain from later this week as trough pushes east and then stalls. Moisture looks great, particularly in the east throughout the outlook period.

ACCESS-G is the most bullish progging widespread falls. I'd expect storms will have flash flooding, large hail and wet microbursts.







Be interesting to see what the PM models run with - given the variation to last weeks outbreak, which still weren't settled 24 hours prior.

I hope we get something this time, we got nothing out of the last system, and I mean nothing but wind.

The ground has gone dry, and I was going to give it a colourful descriptive Aussie colloquialism of how dry it is, but there may be some children who may read these, so I will not put them here.

Models still quite interested in an eastward moving trough over the weekend and into next week with showers & storms, possibly severe. We’ve already seen severe storms form over the ranges today.

Looking ahead, later next week and into weekend, all models are hinting at another Tasman Low developing with significant widespread rain. Ec even keen for a decent event. Much better than the 6 months of boredom we had. Meanwhile, the NE’erles continue unabated.

There's a chain of black cores NW of Sydney and another black core chain developing West of Camden, but they're not moving.

You can see distant towers from here to the NW.

Somewhere like Goulburn could score 5-6 storm days in a row with this setup.

They had 12mm out of yesterday's (23/11) effort. The storm briefly came close to escarpment edge and there was moderate frequency lightning in Bowral for a short while.

Storm shield prevented any escape from highlands, except further down the coast around Bawley point.

Nice cloudscapes on the Western horizon. View from the Chatswood Golf Club car park:





The storm cells are moving today, drifting slowly towards the NE. Not expecting anything here, but something might drift in to Sydney's outer West, or possibly develop there.

------

There's a big variation in temperature across the metro area, barely 21 on the beach, about 30 in the middle Ring and 33 in the outer West.

Just heard a rumble here. Closest storm is west of Warragamba which is odd.

EDIT: by looking at the radar seems that there is a new cell that popped into existence near Appin. Which would make more sense.

That cell near Appin is encouraging, though I assume it's merely a tease for us nearer the coast. It never seems to develop equally close to the coast in the Metro

I think storms have a bias towards high ground and they don't like the sea breeze (a layer of cool, stable air that cuts off convection). Appin is about 150 metres above sea level, but areas not far to the South are 500 metres plus. Also, it's far enough inland that the sea breeze isn't too strong.

Models starting to look almost identical to this period 10 yrs ago when a stagnant trough sat over NSW for almost the entire duration of Nov and first half of Dec 2007. GFS feels optimistic with significant inland totals particularly over the CTs up to the N inland. La nina pattern in swing about to top up our dams again.

There is supposed to be barely any LI and CAPE over the central and upper Hunter yet the ranges are firing. That blob could dissolve stormy or it could get cells popping up on the leading edge or back build behind. Not highly confident for the coast, but wouldnt like to bet on the outcome today. Just give us 10mm. For all the promise its still pretty [censored] weather really. Irrigating the yard flat out again...

Agreed Rainbow Spirit. Grass rapidly browning off even with the somewhat cooler weather we've had as I can't imagine there would've been much soil moisture from the little rain we did get.

I guess the weather has been too boring for a few of the posters, me included to be honest smile

Eddy has a history of going quiet every now and then smile Maybe too busy taking photos smile

WR might be too tired from partying smile

A light stormy shower might get me shortly - nothing exciting at all, maybe a few rain drops.

For a change, Bathurst has been in a bit of a sweet spot in recent weeks - bit different to the norm!!

I made the mistake of clicking the Terrey Hills Radar 'rain since 9am' button. It was enough to make a grown man cry, there was this ring of rainfall around Sydney, and stuff all for the basin, OK who has jinxed us, come on own up!

Yeah last week we had decent steering winds forecast for today/tomorrow, but now things have fallen apart to look like more of the same as the past week. System over next weekend looks interesting, but again that is 5 days away and subject to change. Very poor spring for storms and rainfall here, I think I've recorded one maybe 2 storms overhead the whole 3 months.

116.8mm for Spring here if no more falls in the next few days.

A cloudy, muggy day with sunny breaks early and late.

Those cells SW of Sydney late this afternoon delivered up to 22mm in the Appin area and 7mm at Campbelltown.

There's now a lightning-active cell, nearly stationary, just off Kiama. It should be giving a good lightshow to the Illawarra coast.

NAEFS has a cool signal across much of Australia, either side of latitude 30 degrees South. It's the first time I've seen such a widespread cool signal over Australia for a while. It's been nearly always warm this year:



To me, that suggests widespread cloud and rain over inland Australia. This is also my interpretation of what is being shown in the later parts of the models, e.g. the second week of GFS.

Note: red = warm, blue = cool, maroon = average. I can't see a definition for white. I assume it means 'mixed', on average, close to average.

I also note that while the Tasman sea has looked like a hot bath on this map all year, the (relative) warmth seems to have shifted South.

An average two days storm chasing. 400kms on Sunday, and a 900km marathon yesterday - getting to old at 60 for the 900kms.

Sunday -
Storms struggled initially out near Crookwell. Dewpoints were rather depressed at around 12C. Storms began to fire around 1.30pm.

Encountered a small storm near Crookwell with some close lightning and hail.

On way home a more severe cell at Marulan, with larger hail and flash flooding rain. Numerous close CG's, downside is not much on camera. The Hume Hwy was a mess with cars pulled over or doing 20kms per hour. There are always a few amateur "safety cars" in these conditions - drivers who think that hazard lights = I can drive in the fast lane at 30kph.

Monday -
Headed straight for sunshine, which was Cootamundra. Worrying sky for most of morning and even into afternoon with elevated morning convection lingering - high flat, almost mid level bases with turrets, a couple of which became lightning active.

It was not until 2pm until the surface became unstable and true storms started to fire. Hooked onto a severe cell near Junee, it had no road options, but was nice to watch for a while from about 20kms away on a dirt road with no cars or unnatural sound. Constant anvil thunder - no breaks, but little in way of CG's. It threw out a couple of microbursts.

Another cell in the background started to get going around 4pm and was located near Narrandera. I hoped that it would head East like the Junee cell, but instead it started to constantly build on the N/NW flank. I came within around 30kms of it near Temora, by now it was 6pm and with work on Tuesday I had no choice but to turn my back on it. It was still firing bolts out near Condobolin when I got home around 10pm, so was time wise unfeasible anyway. As a bonus on the way home however Marulan fired again with some lightning from a cell that exploded out near Nerriga. With the poor shear it grew on outflow boundaries to the NW.

Your bonus was my loss haha. I thought Jerrawangala lookout halfway between nowra and nerriga would get me a view until the storm skirted 10km to my west never to be seen again. Tianjara lookout would have been in the rain and I was low on fuel so cut my losses and headed home.

Like you I thought that it would at least move NE a bit more, at one stage just on twilight the back end updraft tower was flashing every 2-3 secs. I really thought it would do the job, but Marulan was its last gasp.

The cicadas have arrived, so it's officially Summer (sort of). Heard them for the first time this season at dusk yesterday evening and they've just started up now.

---------

Mostly sunny in Sydney, warm and humid with an E-SE breeze and scattered low cloud. There is some structure visible in the distance.

Steve,

I heard my first cicadas 2 weeks ago. They must be migrating east. grin

I can see those cells in the western metro from here. They're only small but look to be quite localised and heavy. I haven't heard any thunder yet. Lightning tracker confirms.

Lots of small scattered and localised showers popping up across the basin and out to sea. Some briefly reaching moderate status according to the echos.

Would be interesting to see the rain rate under one of those as toward sunset the clouds seemed to be gaining height and becoming chunky. Most of the afternoon this feature escaped from the sky after and was replaced with a much flatter scuddy type of cloud and then toward sunset it was on the up again!

Hopefully some showers hit this area even if for some short lived excitement! smile

Thats a good observation Perfect. I was watching a heavy shower meandering north from pitt town to ebenezer (1 small rumble) when to the east scuddy maritime cumulus started drifting in from east. Usually a sign that the game is up but as you said after sunset life and crispiness did return to the poor cumuliforms. Havent noticed that very often.

I was surprised a little while ago to be caught in a heavy shower as I got off the train. Must have been one of the small shower cells moving across Sydney from the East. Looking at the sky just now, it's low cloud and stars. It's a warm, muggy evening, like late Summer.

Definitely does feel like February. Chunky clouds reaching some h moving in from the east.

Here's a pic post short lived shower of another cloud trying to gain some traction. Love watching these clouds with some height to them.

Sorry not sure why tinypic always rotates my images side on

I noticed the same as everyone else today.
In non-meteorological terms, chunky clouds in the morning towering skywards with a few small but heavy showers about.
By about 2 pm, it had all headed westward and that scuddy [censored] came in.
Then, upon evening, I noticed some bulk again in the formations. I was pleasantly surprised.
After dark, I had a 30 second shower which surprised me. The rain drops were large and heavy, but it was gone as quickly as it came, and left that wet smelling rain odour which is hard to describe, but I'm sure we all know what it's like.
It's been a funny old day, and like I said yesterday, it feels more like February than November.

The same here, it poured for 15 mins last night around 10.30pm at my home. I am guessing around 5-10mm at least. Gutters over flowing. Trip to work is just 2km and it must of hardly rained, bone dry ground.

Two narrow strips of rain have come in from the ocean over the northern suburbs and the far southern suburbs of Sydney, it looks like they are slow moving, so some spots might get a good drop or two.

Meanwhile the rest of Sydney... nothing.

Yes Rainbow Spirit. In Darling Harbour we've been getting a couple small showers which has resulted in it raining quite nicely for a while now as it's so slow moving and kept building to the east.

Only can imagine the kind of accumulations under the other two bands would be quite nice.

Hopefully something fills in the middle part of Sydney with this liquid gold. My area has a fair bit to catch up on.

Grass is back to brown and the soil profile is pretty shocking given how long the dry spell went for and the rain we did get did not amount to much. Lots of small accumulations to give the impression it had been wet.

Edit: Pouring now.

Never heard anyone say that before (apart from Westfield themselves). Everyone I know still calls it 'Warringah Mall' or 'the mall'.

A sunny morning in Beacon Hill has become very overcast and still now. Been raining since 9 and getting heavier.
Hoping the sun comes back out later and things get nice and soupy.

Smashing down here now - and some good showers overnight. EC looks VERY wet over the next 10 days as well as substantially cooler again.

Here's a pic post short lived shower of another cloud trying to gain some traction. Love watching these clouds with some height to them.

Sorry not sure why tinypic always rotates my images side on






Seeing the impacts of a few things IMO:
- La Nina
- deeper easterlies
- better SST's ( i saw that they were 20c the other day, impressive)

Well done Sidney.

I planted my vegetable garden 2 and a half weeks ago.
The seedlings have no idea what rain is. They have received a drop, except for those 10 drops last night.

I'd just like a nice 15 minute downpour that drops a few mm's.
Hopefully, if the forecast comes to fruition, they'll get a good drop on Saturday.

Hope mother nature sends some down your way Homer smile.

Grass here has browned up since the past week so any rain was welcomed.

Those showers continued to head west after they crossed the coast this morning, and then died in the arse before they reached here.
Then, they redeveloped over the north west areas near Glenorie and Windsor/Richmond. I saw them coming and die. I then saw them rebuild to the west of me.
So frustrating!!

Oh well, looks like the hose for the vegies again this evening.
