The humidity is real bad Eddy.
Scattered high cloud now stitching together. Prelude to raining later hopefully and not just a thermal blanket for tonight

It's quite a cool change, about 20 in Sydney's West compared to low 30s in the Hunter away from the coast. The change is working its way through the Hunter now. The 22.0 at 9:00 at OH, today's minimum, might also be today's maximum.

It's solid overcast here, but there's no sign of any rain yet. However, a couple of Canberra suburbs have had 60mm+ since 9:00 on top of good falls up until then. A severe thunderstorm warning for heavy rainfall covers a swathe of the State from Jervis Bay inland to Young, including Canberra and most of the Illawarra.

Like gringoes said this rain is corresponding to the upper feature. Rain will start to fill in further north and move over metro later. Watch a movie now and enjoy the rain this arvo. Had 2mm herw so far in 2 showers and some drizzle

Yeah scud is now quickly filling the sky here, I did manage to see some storm tops up towards the BTs, radar confirms a few small cells developing up that way.

Surprising that Bathurst is warmer this morning than anywhere in Sydney, but winds are still northerly out there.

Widespread areas of 25-50 mm's forecast today, extending out to the Central Tablelands and Central West Slopes. Hoping those folk out there and in the Hunter get their share.


I'm doing my best Homer, just want to see the good stuff come from the sky.

Some decent development getting going now over the Central Tablelands.
So that's the next rain band developing I suspect.
It's on the back end of the Illawarra rainband but developing further north so aiming more towards the metro.
Will be interesting watching it all come together.

Spent all morning doing last gutter and drain checks. Im really pumped for this qrvo. Go 50mm+. Warragamba will be very healthy once all this passes down the creeks. Have spent $4,500 on water cartage gringoes and certainly cant afford much more.

I know it isn't mentioned in the forecast but what are people's thoughts on some boom crash this afternoon?
Some of the cells developing over the CT's atm are quite juicy.

It's been drizzling here for about an hour, but it's not showing up on the radar. Currently bang on 20 deg's.

Hey Quaggie, that would be starting to hurt. I empathise with your situation. I have been gearing up for a new large tank and buying water....maybe same as you $5k or so before I would give up. Preferably though it wont need to happen at all. I have cleaned out a big old dam that had trees in it and wasnt holding and that will be a drought proofer I think.
I recon that will have to be the last water you buy for a while as there should be some runoff in this for a lot of us struggling. I mean I think we need about 400mm over a month to properly break the drought, but 50mm will be a good start if it indeed happens.

It has been high 20s and super muggy here this morning. Southerly is moderate with scud and sunny breaks. I recon we could see some sparkage Homer. Enough shear to push it to the coast...though LI's are non existent south of the southerly change it seems.
A few cells starting to line Stormy and I up now....

Sign of the moisture in the air is how misty it has gotten last hour or so. Norah temp now matching the dew point so likely some fine drizzle there if some lift. Temp still a fair bit above precipitating out at Nobbys but some lift soon hopefully and it rains.

Well we've certainly not missed out for this event South of Nowra. A surprisingly healthy 82mm in the gauge so far since 10pm last night. It hasn't let up for a second. The occasional rumble too.

The North Shore was getting thick, persistent drizzle for a couple of hours but that's stopped and it's brightened a little. There's a lot of stuff approaching the Sydney Basin from the NW now. The question is, will it fall apart when it comes off the ranges and encounters a layer of cool, stable Southerly air.
