Sorry, but that is rubbish.

Sorry I meant February I don't how i missed that, and I did have a look at Fire weather warning prior to making that statement, it said severe fire weather and I was commenting on how Jimi was wondering why there was no total fire ban.

I say green drought as there has been enough rain to green the grass up, but the rains we had here was'nt heavy enough to fill creeks or dams.so we here are still in drought.

Only got to 27.8c here, thanks to the weak sea breeze mind you its still currently 25c.

Tuesday looking a little unstable for the Hunter, gee I really hope we get to see a storm.

So a few sites in Hunter reached 37. Warm still beside the lake. Was interesting today seeing the variable direction and variable speed of the wind at various places on the lake. A languid south easter at Fennel Bay. Virtually no wind a little later at Eleebana with just a hint of nor west. And at Belmont a spinnaker filling easterly. Forecast for Nobbys tomorrow is 39. Which would equal the 83 record.

Already 30 in some centres like Albury and Griffith.
Windy TV predicts change reaching Sydney around 9pm and up here by 11 or so.
So a frigging long hot day coming up with some relief well after dark.

Sydney going for 40 now.

And, the rainfall totals for the metro this week keep increasing.
Starting Tuesday.

Low of 14C here. Already 18.5C and heading for 29. There is a blustery NW'er which actually gives a slight chill.

It's a calm, clear, sunny morning after a mild but not particularly warm night. A beautiful morning. If I didn't know the forecast I'd never guess what's coming.

The heat seems to be out West at the moment, especially Southwards: in Griffith it was 30.5 at 8:00 after a minimum of 27.7; also aloft - Orange and Mt Boyce were on 21 at 8:00, equivalent to 27-28 at sea level.

Technically astronomical summer ends shortly. But given what this month has been like I wouldn't say this heatwave is the last hurrah of summer like heat.

Ooh EC I think is throwing up a deep low pressure trough with two imbedded lows starting from the 25th everything is starting to get exciting. smile

Will be interesting to see how many places challenge their March daily records today.
No long term records at Maitland Airport, so 40C if reached will be the record. Tocal has a fairly strong record from 1983, as does Williamtown.
Cessnock AP and Singleton could get close though to March 20, 2015 records.

Yeah A2a a cut-off low and cold pool, linking up and drawing in a low from the Goc is about the most ultimate setup for rain you could ask for. At least the uppers are doing something for us to watch

GFS has backed off totals for around here. Im never overly confident if GFS is tetchy on the event compared to other models. lets see if can ramp things back up. Its not so keen on anything after this either....but Access seems to show a cutoff low over eastern NSW.

Its 26 degrees and sparkling blue here, hardly a breeze. Pure magic really. Lets see if records tumble.

Had nearly forgotten about Scone, not sure if it will quite get to the 1998 record, which is a strong one, but will have to watch closely today.
Sydney OH will be interesting too. The 1983 record is possible. 1998 records in western Sydney are going to be close too.

40 look like a joke at this stage thankfully the North-westerlies are unable to get up for at least for the Sydney Basin and other coastal areas.

Scone 41.2 in 1998 the Hunter region max record holder (If the Jerrys Plains 42.8 also in 98 is excluded. I think Blair Trewin commented about Jerrys Plains stats somewhere in the dusty WZ annals). Tocal has a 41 from 83

Richmond's 41.9 in March 1938 the one to beat in Sydney

I think the NWlies will come eventually, even if it may not even be until the mid afternoon. Although I am slightly doubting 40C as well, the hottest part of the airmass won't hit til the arvo. Temp is plateauing at 31C here so far.

Looking at the models though it should be an easy 40-41C across the basin at around 4pm ish.

Btw tomorrow should be pretty warm too. Pretty hard to tell what the exact temp will be but should be around mid-30's if the very weak easterly sea breeze does not make it through. Forecast of 37 seems about right for Penrith.
