I just got to ask Niall Blair directly what was involved with the radar announcement and he said that the state will be building 3 new radars in 'western' NSW. Said the commonwealth had been dragging their feet on this issue. He thought it was going to be 2 in the central west and 1 in the north west. Peak Hill was mentioned... Awesome!!!!

Sounds good. Thanks for sharing.

So Peak Hill, about 400 km West of Sydney, about half way between Orange and Parks. That would be a good location.

Wow GR, that's not looking real healthy atm.

Not sure of the temp today, my weather station is slowly dying, only reports on rainfall, barometer and indoor temp frown
I have explained to the wife I will be getting a new weather station soon, the wife's response how boring!! At least she didn't say no.

Anybody have any idea why my 3 y.o Vantage Pro is suddenly refusing to record below zero? Last week had one of the coldest mornings of the winter, Apsley River frozen over and nearby Woolbrook had -6, I recorded 1.4 min!! Maxima seem to be OK

Have you a solar/battery powered system? At night, batteries on their way out may lose charge and fail to provide valid sensor readings.

If the model forecasts till month end comes off - high and dry - we'll set our 6th month in a row of below average rain. At least though we've had a reasonable drop over the last 4 weeks.

On another note there's been a dearth of frost this winter - one of the least frosty I recall - due in part to persistent cloud. As such our pasture has greened up nicely since that hot and dry autumn, and even grown despite a string of single figure maxima. Perhaps the 'weather' of note forth coming will be frost as a HP ridge settles over the SE of Australia. June maxima are averaging cooler than normal here, but that may even out by month end. June minima are averaging warmer than normal, but could even out to normal if we see a run of frosty nights.

Eddy, you would have had a gut full of the rain for sure. We dont want the coasties to wish it away though, just be cold, wet and miserable a bit longer please smile (well at least if we are getting a spray too)

There is the sniff of an upper level cold pool getting thrown up in the models 6 or 7 days out. It looks to be fairly benign at the moment, but there is always the potential with cold uppers, it could generate some inland rain or coastal event or ECL. Hoping its a fairly strong cold pool and develops a decent event on the back of this one. The main dam is still 30cm below the old record low that it past in January this year. Gets scarier as each cool month passes, especially as tomorrow is the solstice....

Yes had a gut full alright, but I wont mind another 200mm event if it means significant rainfall where its needed the most.

Actually the radar is looking like we might get a few lingering showers overnight.
