Tomorrow looks like it might be interesting in Sydney. It's one of the few forecasts where I've seen the probability of rain stated as 100%. Still, only partly cloudy. Hopefully the 15-25mm forecast arrives in the form of storms.

Things go quiet on Sunday. I was hoping for Weserlies and 30, but it looks like the Southerlies arrive by lunch time. The main action for Sydney looks to be Monday to Wednsday, with a trough dipping down from Qld spawning an ECL, which moves Southwards down the coast. The inland gets a lookin as well. Monday to Wednesday totals (mm) forecast are:

Sydney: 16 - 46
Penrith: 18 - 46
Newcastle: 11 - 29
Wollongong: 19 - 48
Bathurst: 17 -58

There are two rainbands approaching the Sydney Basin, one out around Jenolan/Oberon heading SSE, and one out near Gunnedah heading SE, and guess what, there is a gap in between them that appears to be headed straight for the Basin. So it looks like Sydney may miss out again...

Well the rain is mainly forecast for the afternoon and evening, so we shouldn't despair yet. Also there would be a reason for the bureau to put the chance of rain at 100%.

Warm, humid and windy in Richmond, totally overcast, about 29 degrees.

Anyone else notice how cold it is right on the coast - barely 20 degrees at Bellambi, Nobby's and no doubt beach suburbs in between. MHL seems to be off the air but there must be some strong upwelling. No doubt driven by that barrelling NE'er that has hardly let up in 72 hours. Not a day for the beach.

I think the rain is some way off for Sydney - maybe late this afternoon or tonight.

Just posted this in the day to day thread but it's more relevant here.......

"That looks like quite a decent squall line which stretches from near Braidwood to Mudgee, heading east."

Very black to my west and radar shows big red core - hoping it survives the drop off the mountains.

OMG one hell of a westerly wind just then came through the window and knocked a vase over and it smashed! Now just a lot of rain with less wind. No thunder or lightning yet.

Okay round two of extreme wind, maybe 80-90km/h from N/NW now! Very gusty. I haven't seen a squall line like this in a long time here.

I didn't expect wind with this rain band, just slow consistent rain. Mind you I haven't been paying much attention to the weather lately.

Cheers Kino, I've been really busy and weather hasn't been too interesting anyway.

Shut all your doors and windows Kino, this wind is big wind.

No wind at all here yet but the radar is looking pretty good atm but it's not looking that threatening to the west going by the visual.

Just starting to rain here (Cattai National Park near Pitt Town). The rain rate is picking up. That rain band is regenerating as it approaches Sydney and the coast. Doesn't look to be lightning associated with it.

I note that Bellambi has just shot up to 26 degrees.

Welcome back WR.

Increasingly windy here, a very large tree branch just dented my car as I was shuffling it into the garage. Bummer.
