I said 'damn' as a statement of surprise that an event that was listed as 1-5 mm about a week ago has been upgraded, the good thing about this event is widespread upon drought-stricken areas. On another note seems have cell up over me that keeps giving, been absolutely pouring for the last 20 mins.

Ok. All good.
As for the rain, glad you're getting some. Sounds a bit like what I got earlier.
Skies appear to be drying out a little atm, at least for the time being.
Bring on tomorrow!!

Nice storm without much thunder or lightning about a hour ago through Riverwood. It went through fast. Temps rising again.

SW winds registered through Gabo Island. Maybe the change will be through earlier than expected. Here's hoping.

If the change thru Gabo maintained a speed of 50kmh it would take around 8 hours to cover the 'as the crow flies' to southern outskirts of Sydney (Wattamolla).
396km

Saves having to do this
(a = sinē(Δφ/2) + cos φ1 ⋅ cos φ2 ⋅ sinē(Δλ/2)c = 2 ⋅ atan2( √a, √(1−a) )d = R ⋅ c)


But seeing these changes don't follow a constant speed it could be earlier or later. What was the original forecast arrival time for it Petar?

Thats the coastal arrival. Wrap around means inland often gets the change before right on the coasters

It bucketed down at Chipping Norton around 4:45pm, and it lasted for about 15 mins, so much so that I walked around with just a pair of shorts to enjoy it!

Looks like the Hunter in particular will do really well out of this event. I'm thinking I should make a thread but I have no useful information to contribute to kick it off.

We should be getting another thunderstorm later tonight because there is a line just west of Canberra right now and it's lightning active. Also here it has warmed back up to 30 degrees after dropping down to 25.6 during the rain.

Lol GFS has the southerly coming about 4am and a southerly all day tomorrow, don't know what BoM is seeing. Windyty (ECMWF) is roughly similar.

Anyway I decided to make a thread.

Cheers for that website link Knot. The change was expected around 7am Sunday morning for southern Sydney. However Illawarra Stormchaser page is saying they are expecting it approx 12-2 am.

I noticed the BoM had changed their previous forecast this afternoon. Windytv also has it reaching Sydney early AM, very early. And southerlies all day tomorrow and showers.

Unless the BoM believes the southerly change will stall?

36C forecast was met.
@ Knot, Singo also got to 37C as per forecast.
Cooranbong is not a place I look at a lot, a small town just off the highway I never go to, but the heat was fairly consistent across the Hunter today.
Looking forward to this rain event coming.
Edit, just looked at Penrith, running ahead of the record Feb of 2004 average max right now, despite only 1 day over 40C, just relentlessly above average temps this month.
Nice to Feb 2004 still holding some records from Feb 2017, including the state record, that was a brutal event.

Well I played cricket at Gresford today and it was tough going, car thermometer read 37c at 12.30pm, humidity was high too, some towers tried to get going but couldn't produce the goods just some spits here and there.

Bring on these next 2 days if the forecast is to be believed!!

Look's like a 1mm drop if we are lucky again. These slow moving fronts are weak as these days.
What happened to all the moister coming from the north?
