Interesting that the swell at Cronulla is only reported as 1ft at the moment. Live webcam of Wanda beach backs this up.
Water temp a toasty 20C

From windy.com the swell will pick up very fast at some point some where near the coast. Just how much on the metro beaches looks very uncertain.
Wind just started howling outside at Bexley North.

Big slab of moderate to heavy rain about to hit the Illawarra (if it makes it over Saddleback).

Sea temps off Sydney have cooled in the last week or so, now 19.35 according to MHL. Before that, they had been hovering around 21-22 for a while. The May average is about 20.7. MHL Sydney. There is still warm water way out to sea, pushed away from the coast by a cool ('evil'?) eddy.

-----

It's a cool, overcast morning.Eastern Sydney picked up 3 - 5 mm from those showers before dawn, with little or nothing in the West. It hasn't rained enough to register at OH since 5:30AM. There are showers about, right on the coast and out to sea, shrivelling as they move North.

Went through Tumbarumba and Batlow this morning. Still a bit of snow on the ground in the Laurel Hill area above 950-1000m, but with the temperature at +5 it clearly wasn't going to be around for much longer.

Cheers Blair - interesting.

8-20 mm's now forecast for tomorrow. Hope it comes off - although it could ruin a few Mother's Day BBQ's if it does.

Have had some moderate showers today, in between some light intermittent rain. 16 deg max, and currently 14.3.
It was windy most of the day, and I didn't see very much sun at all. Just a few minutes here and there. Certainly felt very cool in the breeze, especially sitting there watching the kids soccer and netball. I loved it though. Bring on winter.

Same here Homer though we were sheltered from most of the decent rain thanks to Saddleback range. Shows we need a more s/sse/se flow for decent southerly rain events.

Longer term looks colder throughout for the coast - both mins and max below average right across the outlook.

20C locally today, though that must have been a brief spike, or I blinked and missed it.
Certainly not complaining, nights are cool and the heater is going. Good sleeping weather that is for sure.

Another nice rain band heading up from the south atm.

I see it got to 20-21 in Sydney's outer West, there may have been more sun there. Just one or two sunny breaks here, mostly overcast but I only saw a few sprinkles of rain. Chatswood received 1mm since 9:00 to add to its overnight total of 3 mm. Sydney OH had its second sub 17 max.

Autumn has arrived. 35 degree temperatures of just a month ago are now distant memories. The water dragons were out in force the other day, but they will soon go into hibernation (strictly, brumation) for the Winter.

The models this morning were hinting at a weak front on Wednesday and maybe something stronger around the 21st. The latest GFS is now back to the Russia-sized high with little to interrupt it. Forecast rain totals tomorrow look promising for the coast. The radar's filling up, although there's nothing nearby at the moment.

Yeah Saddleback makes quite a difference. When I was coming back from the Southern Highlands, it was raining all through there to the top of Mac Pass where the rain surprisingly stopped, and looking down to Wollongong, the land was sunlit. When I got down here it was only partly cloudy.
