Gotta be some sort of electro magnetic field around the place with all them turbines twisting away. How that interacts with the radar though would need a more edjumacated mind than mine though.

Rain cricket and frog noises, showers on radar to the south, forecast - bone dry.

I was thinking it could be the vortices generated by the aerofoil design of the turbine blades condensing the moisture on humid days.

With the right combination of temperature, and humidity, moisture in the cores of these vortices condense and become visible, but It's never that humid up there at Mt Emerald.
And I've only ever seen it on aircraft wings. So I'm stumped too.

Warm again today, but forgot to look at the temperature, at least more than 36.

Late afternoon blustery and cool from the surrounding storms, but none came close frown

Reflection on the doppler? The highest towers at Mount Emerald are 117mt blades on 90 meter towers.

Very likely Marakai.

I rang the Met Office at CNS Aero yesterday arvo and spoke to a lady who said an update would be added to the Radar Details info,- (where it also describes the limitations of the radar to the SSE looking over Mt B.K. and Mt B.F. etc).

Wowza, it is very windy today. Has been a relatively calm October, especially following that really crappy September.

Some heat in the days, mornings still seem cooler than expected for this time of year. Rain seems far off

Night time temps are a hair above average out here but day temps are way above average. If we get this string of 35c days it will be my hottest October by nearly 2c and around 2.5c above my October average.
I think we will see some good storms during November.

Yeah the heat is definitely a month early. I think it is due to the lack of October winds this year which are usually similar to Septembers but not quite as strong.

Yes that's crazy ay Pogo, new record. And similar again today they say.

Just walked past a mango looked like a nai-doc, had nearly ripe and some pea sized mangos just finishing the second flowering.

We've had them all out here this afternoon.

38 degrees at 2.30pm and 18%
Humidity dropped to 11% at 4.30pm.

I really could do without the wind, horrible horrible horrible.

Same out here C@28, 36-38-9 all this week through the day though it has been cooler for far longer this year than what are used to. The nights have cooled off again this week though and we're back up to a doona again the last few nights as the moisture receded.

I took the doona off for a night or two a week or so ago, for a night, then put it back on. Then a few days ago I put 2 blankets on, then added a throw... Nights are not that cool any more but still need comfort cover. grin

LOL @ C@28, don't know about you but I need a fan to sleep at night as well, still air just freaks me out and I can never get to sleep without some air movement in the room. Might be a tropical Aus thing but all my kid's are the same as well.
