This is the NSW Day-to-Day weather thread for 2019.
Use it like you did with the previous one that ran for over 12 years. smile

By splitting the NSW Day-to-Day thread into years, it should make finding information about past weather easier and give more organisation to the general weather discussion that occurs in NSW outside of the event threads.

The following may help with finding information in the previous Day-to-Day thread that ran from July 2006 to December 2018.

30C forecast top today for Sydney Airport.
Was already 29.3 at 8:53am.
Dropped back to 28.4 now after the wind change to the NW went back to the NNE.

The glorious blue skies return! Hooray

New year new thread.

It's beautiful day today, although very humid, a return to the recent pattern. The sea breeze is up and running near the coast after flukey light winds earlier. Sydney OH has already been to 27.9 against a forecast 29, but I think that it will probably hover around 27-28 all day now, maybe briefly spiking to 29 or 30. I think that the Airport will probably get into the low 30s as it has been doing this past week. It will be hot again for the Western suburbs.

Similar here, maybe even 17, ridiculous days and days of strong NE’erlies. The great irony of the NSW Central Coast & south - warmer weather, freezing ocean. Cold weather, warmer ocean 💁🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

Great storm, cloud and sky pictures. I do like a clear blue sky. It's a great backdrop for distant storm clouds, in 3 months' time for Autumn trees and for Jacarandas in 10 months.

----

Re sea temps, here are the MHL measurements about 10 km off Sydney's Northern beaches. It looks like the Battle of the Currents:



We seem to be getting regular deviations about a degree either side of the average (about 21.6). The frequency seems to be roughly daily. The tides perhaps?

The water temps seem to have recovered at least on the Shoalhaven Coast, probably from the lack of sea breeze the last few days. Not sure about Wollongong coast but probably pretty similar. Felt around 21°C to me and had a nice blue colour instead of a greenish tinge that seems to happen when the water is cold.

In fact it was almost the perfect beach day. Temps were mild (around 22-23°C) but the lack of breeze made it feel much warmer than it was.

Further to this morning's discussion, here's an article in this morning's SMH about the cold water at the beach this Summer: Why it's hot on the beach and cold in the surf

Apparently have been more sea fogs as well, including this morning at Bondi.

Been down in Jervis Bay for the yearly family holiday, and I gotta say the water's been spectacular. Wouldn't've called it unusually cold at all. Not sure what's going on up in Sydney.

The water at Mollymook is now quite warm after being freezing on the weekend. Long surfs are being had in just boardies with no problems even though air temps haven’t passed 25C. I was almost too warm in a wetsuit top (yet had to wear a full steamer on the weekend).

I think we’ve have more SE winds, rather than NE, which may have helped.

I have some photos and a crappy time lapse of that roll cloud riding the change earlier in the week. Will upload when I’m back tomorrow night.

I went to Huskisson today. Water temp was quite comfortable.
I cannot believe how strong the north easter has been here this afternoon.
It's after midnight now and it's still blowing a gale.
It made dinner on the back deck of the rental very uncomfortable, but happily cool.

The cyclone strength Nor'Easter was what I remember most about that place. Hated it. Could not do anything outside after about mid afternoon.

Looks awesome. Pretty much fills in every bit of low elevation in the area. Even as far away as the valley of Glen Davis.

Would have loved to see the view at Kurrajong Heights lookout.

Bank of sea fog sitting off the Northern Beaches now.
Bits and pieces spilling over North Head into the harbour.

An impressive site but it does tell the story of the nasty Ekman transport. Shows up well on layers with enhanced IR.

Wasn't much of any sea breeze yesterday afternoon in my area, until about 8pm where it picked up a little on the coast.

A bit stronger today but still not bad, while the South Coast is getting quite a strong NEer. Even more so in Eastern Tassie, the winds there got to 87km/h at Tasman Island early this morning.

We were on the south coast from Boxing day for a week. The water temps were comfortably warm....I was expecting much brisker!

The other thing that surprised me was the complete lack of seabreeze during our time. We were staying a little bit inland, but I spent 3 afternoons fishing at Broulee and on 2 of those days there was no air movement at all. I found it quite disconcerting. It was just dead still and I couldnt really remember a time when I was on a beach and there was no wind at all. Clearly it was the exception for the area....made for good fishing and swimming though. very pleasant.

Next week looks amazing for storms. Almost worth a thread - should be plenty of severe storms about with gorilla hail possible.

Synoptic setup looks to be a thermal trough linking with a short wave trough that stalls, fed by a ne / flow with decent moisture. Looks like storms will start over the ranges Sun/Mon but then push more coastal across that week.

Here's Narrabeen Beach early this afternoon. A perfect beach day, about 26° with a gentle sea breeze. It looks empty but it was actually crowded for a week day. Everyone was just down the beach between the flags.

There was no sign of sea fog there, but further South it was hazy out to see and there were patches of low cloud.

Here's the view of Sydney Harbour from North Head, with the city skyline in the distance:

You could always do a bit of kite surfing in that wind? It looks fun.
As for the Cricket its clear India are playing for the draw, and its a wonder they didn't bat on. Although they have enough runs to win the match outright, not that Im giving up, the Aussie's could pile on 800 runs in the next two days and bowl India all out on the last day for 100 runs, and then the alarm clock went off!! laugh grin poke

Back to the weather how good were some of those temps in far west NSW and Vic today, 46.6c I saw somewhere in Vic today. Gee I would love to see some of that here!!

Nice looking day in old Sydney town Steve777.

Agree. I live in a double brick unit that generally doesn't get much, if any, direct sunlight and all windows and curtains have been closed during the day which has kept it comfortable in the past.

The last few days the average temperature has nudged 29 degrees and held there, with the humidity it has not been comfortable. It takes all night for the temperature to drop a degree by morning with the windows and balcony door wide open.

When using the air conditioning and turning it off it doesn't take long for the temperature to increase back to 28-29 as there's just so much heat been absorbed by the brick for such an extended duration of time.

It also doesn't make good outdoor weather i put hehe unless you head east to the beach.

My place gets to 32.5c easily during the arvo even when it doesnt hit that temp. So ill be incredibly glad. These past 2 weeks make me really glad AC exists grin.

Yeah house is poorly planned out. Majority of windows face the West. No windows face east. One window towards the south.

Not only that, the neighbors metal shed's roof faces our west facing windows. So not only do we get the sunsets heat. We also cop the UV reflection from that roof.

Sounds like a bit of frustrating layout as you cop it from all sides.

Tomorrow I'm going to the beach really nice and early before the change and thunderstorms. Going to enjoy as much as I can beforehand before the change in weather. Hopefully some storms tomorrow and useful rain. smile

I am glad I am not the only one. My rental apartment has a east to west layout with no windows to the south. I am also on top of a bakery. The apartment is old style, takes in heat, slow to release brick work frown

So it'll take several days to cool off. The place is warm to the touch including my bedroom.

Cool change looks like its the VIC-NSW border regions.

Sunset Thursday evening taken from North head (same position Steve took his photo from), the Harbour bridge was somewhere to the right. Would've been cool to have the sun and the bridge in line.

Wow 24.1C min here in Monash, ACT As a minimum thats crazy warm for southern Canberra. Much more exposed sites where the official weather stations will report slightly lower minimums but down here in suburbia amongst all the houses the UHI effect is well pronounced.

Oh and Happy New Year everybody I'm still watching the forum!

Cheers
Edit Oh and we are going for our 12th day in a row above 33C!

Light drizzle falling here from that stalled trough. With the middle layer cloud deck and low level marine scum deck I can't see how most areas of the basin will even get above 20 today. Miserable, gloomy nuisance is all this is.

GFS fantasy hinting at a return to extended heat. Normally I wouldn't get my hopes up but it's been there for a few runs now and it nailed the heatwave we just had.
Should get a goat and make an offering to the appropriate deities to ensure it happens.

First session of day 4 has been washed out, where was this rain in Melbourne?

Come to think of it, I can’t remember the last Sydney Test that didn’t have some sort of rain delay.

Looking at it, since 2009 5 Sydney tests have had rain delays. 2009 and 2012-2015 were dry, the rest have had rain.

Looking at OH, if today stays below 20 it will be the first time in 3 years that January has had a sub 20 max. Currently it is 19.1c. Much nicer than 38c, gives the houre a chance to cool down and gives the AC a rest. Each to their own I guess.

What a sh1t of a day, 21.7c was my top today, too cool to get out and mow lawns today.
Currently 19.6c with some of the finest drizzle you will ever see.

You need to get tested for Alzheimer's. 2016 was almost a total washout.

With few exceptions the Sydney test, and any limited over match, has an uncanny knack of picking a day(s) of rain in between lengthy spells of fine weather.
This year has not failed to disappoint.

So now we've lost temp data for Penrith. Not a good start to the year for the basin sites. Four have incomplete data for the year. A year that is six days old.

Penrith
Terrey Hills
Sydney Harbour
Badgerys Creek

Badgerys has been offline for about 3 weeks now so not sure what's going on there.

That’s what I said, that I can’t remember the last test without rain... I’d be worried to have Alzheimer’s at 23! And it used to be annoying, but with the way we’re playing now it would be better if this rain happened in Melbourne.

Got to 20.8 today. Surprised that nothing got picked up in the gauge, there was a lot of drizzle about today.

I'm peripherally interested in cricket but not much into its traditions. But why can't they play the game when it rains, even marginal showers like today? Baseball continues in light rain. What about England, known to experience the odd spot of cloudy, wet weather. Do they stop playing if it's overcast, even without rain? Does drizzle too light to register stop games over there?

I think the game needs a few changes so that days like today don't cause interruptions. Yesterday was fair enough, with heavy showers and lightning about, but today? If that's not possible, test matches in NSW/ACT should only be played in inland centres like Canberra or Bathurst.

Anyway, a lot of time will probably be lost tomorrow as well, with 850 humidity over Sydney 90%+ until late tomorrow afternoon.

Gloomy, almost windless and 22 degrees in Sydney this morning. That's actually a degree bonus on yesterday's maximum. The drizzle seems to have stopped but soundings and 850 temps show the cloud sticking around until early tomorrow.

In spite of persistent drizzle here for much of yesterday, at Moore Park and presumably at OH in between those locations, the OH rain gauge did not register a drop of rain. Nowhere in Sydney seems to have registered more than 0.2 mm.

So humid, overcast but with little or no rain, temperature stuck around 20 degrees all day and all night. Warm clammy nights, gloomy days which feel cold if the wind picks up. My least favourite weather - whinge whinge whinge...

I don't mind one or two days like this in between heat events. It gives the house a chance to cool before the next heat event.

However, when we get overcast stratus, south-easterly, low-20's weather like this for a week in summer then it gets annoying. I remember summer 2011-2012, especially in December, almost every day was like this, not good at all.

In a word, it's safety. Low light and bowling up to 150kmph is a recipe for disaster for the batsmen, and a slippery ball leads to beamers (full tosses at the head), and the risk of slipping when coming in to bowl and doing damage to a bowler as well. Additionally, playing in heavy rain means the wicket gets wet, and players would have to bat on a sticky (drying and humid) wicket, that has variable bounce, leading to the risk of injury. Having said that, I don't think conditions were that bad yesterday, definitely not bad enough for light to stop play in the afternoon. As you say, if this test was in England I doubt play would be stopped. Unfortunately there's not much chance of the game going to inland NSW, as Canberra is only this season hosting its first test. Cricke is very inflexible... If a pink ball was used then play under lights could be done, which I think is essential, all cricket should use the pink ball now.

Onto the weather. Dreary day today, more like mid to late autumn than high summer, but I'm very much enjoying the cooler weather, I hope it lasts.

I like warmer weather but admittedly I'm kind of enjoying this weather as well. After two weeks of hot and/or humid weather, a couple of cool cloudy days are nice. It should be gone tomorrow and we look forward to more thunderstorms in this fantastic storm season.

There's no wind today so it feels mild, unlike yesterday which was breezy and felt genuinely cool in the wind.

Very much liking the look of the current GFS run. Shows a retrograding upper low moving towards the central NSW coast inside 7 days. Yes please. Storms before, storms after....and more movement in the uppers towards the end of the run. Much more the sort of model run I like. Keep it up!

Pizzle here on and off today. Very dry again other than damp pizzle grass. Dams almost given back what December gave. Still very low for me and many others....

Thank you McBobbings - interesting. We don't want to risk player safety.

Re weather, after looking brighter this morning and starting to warm up, the gloom closed in around 9:30 AM, with drizzle mostly sticking around until about 4:00 PM. So after being stuck on 20 all night, it was stuck on 21 all day.

It's brightening up a bit now. The Sun even tried to come out, enough to get the cicadas going. They've been quiet since Saturday.

And that's what happened. The record will show that at Sydney OH, the temperature range for January 7 was 18.3 to 25.6. The 18.3 occurred at or shortly after 9:00 on the 6th, the 25.6 just before 9:00 on the 8th, 48 hours apart.

So 18-26 looks like a typical Sydney Summer day, slightly cool by recent standards, especially the minimum. The day itself was in fact a gloomfest with the temperature stuck within a degree of 21 for most of the day and night.

In either case, a bit different to the same day last year (22.4 - 43.4).

Right now it's sunny, warm and fairly humid with a light breeze and the cicadas making up for lost time. Maybe some storms later.

It's looking like the typical mid Jan heatwave it arrives like almost clockwork without fail. The difference with this one is that it will follow a wet couple months especially in the basin, expect a humid heatwave.

Wish meteye would add a 45-48c instead of just colour coding everything the same for 45c+. Makes it a lot easier to see extreme spots especially since were in Australia. During heatwaves half the map is that dark maroon 45c+ colour haha.

With heat coming like this, we must get storms in the afternoons as well, because there is still a trough inland.

Does look to be a somewhat humid stormy heatwave unlike the typical dry ones we get this time of year. Wouldn't be surprised if we get more sea foggy days either, the SST anomalies have spiked up to +4C just off the Illawarra.

WZ forecasting DPs of 23-24C during the peak of the heat for coastal SYD. Will get pretty uncomfortable.

Those DPs are business as usual in Summer for many similar latitudinal locations in the northern hemisphere .

Almost a month now and Badgery's Creek still offline.
Is it coming back? Anybody know? Seems a bit strange.

The only real benefit those anomalies will have is for places like the South Coast if we have days of ese/se’erlies otherwise they’re useless that far south. If they were more e/ene/ne then they’d pump bucket loads into approaching troughs.

Atlanta, GA (34° N), for instance; easily more humid on average than Sydney.

I think most of Japan gets those high DPs due to being surrounded by water, also Eastern Coastal China, for example Shanghai often gets DPs in the low-mid 20's. Along with Florida, most of Eastern USA gets very humid during summer, especially July and August. However temps above the high 30's are very rare there, unlike in Sydney. Even as far north as New York dew points rise into the low-mid 20's quite often in late summer.

Mediterranean cities such as Beirut have very high DPs as well during summer, however virtually rainless.

Also Buenos Aires gets fairly high dew points as well (and plenty of severe storms).


Looking pretty humid here on the Central Coast for the next week. A dew point of 28°C is forecast for Gosford next Friday.

America is very lucky in that sense they are surrounded by two very warm regions that pump ample moisture. They have the shallow gulf of mexico and the gulf stream right next to it. Meanwhile Buenos Aires doesn't have such a warm ocean near it they have ample rainforests and forests north of it which create their own moisture feed.

On the note of heatwaves EC is predicting some amazing dew points for elevated areas Katoomba at a dewpoint of 22 degrees and Kangaroo valley at 24 degrees. This recent rain would have certainly contributed to these dewpoints and the lack of westerlies adds to it. I wonder if any wet bulb records would be broken.

Also could someone explain the concept of Wet Bulb temperatures, its a bit confusing personally.

So massive CAPE figures and good LI's next week, but very little interest in storms at least from GFS. Must be some hefty capping expected, otherwise you would think that storms along the Seabreeze boundary would be likely?

I Doubt it GR it's very likely that the CAP will be extremely strong with a lot of heat pouring mixing in at higher levels. Which prove to be a very strong cap, although EC has been indicating that storms will happening on isolated areas on the tablelands which would somewhat escape the capping.

Take a look through Tokyo's summer weather, like August 2010 for example, when the dew point was hardly ever below about 23C even on the hottest days. It's like that pretty much all over Japan and Asia even up to Beijing, and in North America even up to the Canadian border (due to the Gulf of Mexico).

It looks like a five day Heatwave starts Tuesday. I'll start a heat thread in the next day or two unless someone else wants to.

Penrith is forecast to get four consecutive days of 41+ stating Wednesday 16th. Even OH is forecast to get five consecutive 31+. A 'courageous' forecast as this rarely happens. Seabreezes will moderate coastal temperatures until the last day of the event (which currently looks like the 19th). 850 temps over Sydney reach 28 mid week.

Meanwhile, tomorrow's Sydney forecast makes no sense. Cloudy, 20 km/h Southerlies and 27? It'll get to 27 if there are lengthy sunny periods. 850 humidity and soundings aren't showing as much cloud as the three recent cloudy days when it couldn't get past 22 apart from bonus additions.

Yeah Canberra will get it's fair share of the heat too, always does this time of year, typically early Feb is the peak time for the heat.
I guess time will tell if our all time record of 42.2C will be broken on Wednesday or not.

Looks like a genuine heatwave starting on Tuesday, at least 4 days in a row over 40C in western Sydney and the Hunter.
Definitely a new thready worth event Steve.
The Upper Hunter, Singleton going for 3 x 43C days, and even 44C in Scone.
Tocal a chance of challenging the Jan record too. (no long term records at Maitland Airport)
Looks like the normal weather we get in the 2nd half of Jan, which tends to peak around Australia Day to early Feb.

Forecast for Katoomba from Monday onwards is downright ridiculous. Mt Boyce is already running an avg max of 26.4C, 3C above the long term avg for Katoomba (Mt Boyce would actually be a touch cooler on avg than Katoomba). May end up being the hottest month on record if next week comes off and the weather doesn’t switch to rain and SE’lies to cap the month off. Sad times for much of the fragile ecosystems in that part of the world.

I was woken by the Southerly around 3:30 this morning. It is still reasonably brisk, around 15 - 25 knots (not km/h) near the coast. It was 100% overcast here for most of the morning, but the Sun and the cicadas are starting to come out now. The BOM just updated the forecast to "Mostly cloudy, though sunny breaks at times" and still going for 27/32 for Sydney and Penrith. I think that would take a bit more sun than the forecast implied to get there.

I was in the Hawkesbury district yesterday. It was sunny and humid with small convective clouds trying to get going, about 35 degrees on the car thermometer. Everything is looking very green after Spring and Summer rains. Dams look full or nearly full. Pughs Lagoon near Richmond is back to its normal level, the sandy beaches that appeared for a while now covered.

Here's the countryside near Kurrajong yesterday:

The forecast for Sydney might not necessarily be Dawes Point \ Obs Hill. I know from years of working in the city that you only have to go a couple of blocks away from the harbour foreshore to experience higher temps. Barangaroo & Darling Harbour feel decidedly warmer\hotter when the ENE breeze is blowing (as opposed to a gradient ENE wind).
We've done this discussion to death but I always consider these 'courageous' forecasts to be a better representation of what you feel in the city.

Meanwhile the Obs Hill site has reached the forecast 27 in sunny breaks and under the influence of one of the few wind directions where it is not exposed to the water.

Yes Steve I've noticed how green Western Sydney is at the moment. During July Everything was yellow and rough, but given 4 months of above average rainfall. Everything has turned beautiful and lush haven't had to water anything at all as well.
Hence probably why this heatwave will be pushing our comfort levels.

Not NSW but interesting to see what the air mass is like around the continent.

Take it with a grain of salt as Wiluna Airport is about 5 degrees cooler than that. The dew points and barometer readings are also questionable.

Stormy Im saying a lot of the grass isnt even green anymore. All the paddocks in Quorrobolong have browned off in the last week. Northern part of the Hunter and central coast might be ok. But its going to be crispy brown as well as no water in the dams this time next week.

Even the well watered lawns around here are struggling, the lawns that are not watered are next to dead, very hard to keep moisture in sand based lawns.
And I have gone and fertilised my lawn heavily today!! crazy

The southerly wasn't here for long today it arrived as a sea breeze only and it swung NE not long after lunch. Quite a pleasant day really.

Eddy, it is generall not a good thing to fertilze a lawn when it is going through stress, either from a lack of rain or extreme heat or frost.

Depending on the fertilzer that you had used, you may burn off what is there as it is with the high concentration of nitrogen, iron and sulfur in the fertilizer.

You are better off, especially if you have sandy soil to build it up with some sort of mulch or soil that isn't sandy.

Otherwise, you may have be best to use Seasol, which will assist the the plant to deal with the stress and intake of any water available for it.

Some water storage crystals may be a option to spread about, but you may need to work out whether crystals or granular type is best for your soil. I prefer the granular, especially when it contains coir peat, as this will add body of soil.mulch to the sand that you have in the soil.

Depending on the size of the land you have, may determine what you may do.

If you plan to use Seasol, buy the commercial concentrated 20L drums from a local farm produce store, as it works out cheapest of all. You can pay $78 for the 10 litre drum from Bunnings, which works out at $7.80 per litre, but the commmercial strength version is twice as strong, thus use only half as much, and they are around $180 for 20 litres, but in effect you are buying 40 litres for $180 which works at $4.50 litre. I personally have recently bought the 200L drum (as we do have acreage and the storage area as well) which was about $1,300 a drum, which in effect works about $3.25 per litre, but that is the extreme case.


Also too, if you have trees and shrubs, they love seasol too, especially when they are suffering stress from either heat or lack of water.

Follow the directions and your yard will love you back for it. It isn't a fertilizer, but more of a soil tonic that assists plants in taking in nutrients and water into its system. And you can't kill anything with too much use of it. If people say that it has a high concentration of salt in it, they are heavily misinformed, as it is made form the seaweed which has very little salt in it, not from sea water.

But the only thing you can really help much with is sun scorched lawn and plants. Only shade can save them, but there are several products which are anti-transpiration agents (Envy, Wilt-not and Floraguard are the main products) which you need to coat the entire leafage with. It assists the plants with the loss of water through its leaves, and some can acts a sun block as well. It also works for frost as well, protecting the leaves, flowers, fruit and buds from freezing. Florists at time use these in preserving fresh flowers to last longer. The only things about these products, they are very dear ($300 per 20L drum) and the mixture rate is 5% for first application, then 3% for later applications, it washes off in heavy rain or hosing, and if you don't clean your spray equipment properly, you may as well buy some new equipment as it will clog and line everything with the film layer. However, it is fully biodegradable and safe for all insects. I only use it extreme conditions, such as now in a heatwave or in heavy frosts and it may be hard to find someone whjo stocks it. But the product does last in storage for a lengthy time if stored correctly.
