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.

Went to Malua Bay a few times for Summer hols as a kid.

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.

Blowing the proverbial dog off a chain all day here in Culburra. Very unpleasant beach conditions so I'm passing time reading a book and watching the cricket.

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.

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.

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.
https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=IWESTERN241#history

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.

GFS is interested in a nice little upper level disturbance transitioning NSW from Sunday Evening through into Monday evening. Could be some nice rain and storms about the Hunter and MNC if it proves correct tomorrow. The central west might get a nice drop this evening. I really hope it is right. generally the models show more rain/storm potential this week, so we might get a few surprises.

The BOM's outlook for February to April came out afew days ago: http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/outlooks/#/overview/summary

Warm and dry.

----

Solid marine layer cloud here, about 22-24 across Sydney. Judging by the forecast, the BOM must be expecting some clearing later.

Thanks for that info J Pabo, much appreciated.

I saw that too GringosRain, we definitely could get a surprise or two. Looking at GFS storm chart for 1am tomorrow morning, storms likely for our neck of the woods but for places like Gloucester and surrounding areas have the purple patch, likely to be severe.

It will be interesting to see if it comes of overnight?

Anyway been a quite a warm humid day, cloud has been slowly burning off in the last couple of hours.
2.7mm overnight too.

One more cooler day tomorrow, before the heat starts again on Tuesday. Australia Day is forecast to be warm and sunny, if the forecast is correct, it will be the first warm and sunny Australia Day for several years at least.

Good pick up Sidney!!

It jumps 3.7c in three minutes and in the following minute it drops 4.6c, possible close lightning strike perhaps?

Interesting. I'll have a look at the 1-minute data tomorrow (this is a finer resolution than goes to the public web) to see if that's any more revealing. Also seems a little surprising to me that the humidity stayed well below 100% with heavy rain falling.

MCS forming over center, quite a slow moving storm complex. Big localised falls in places.

Not sure what's faster, the movement of the storms or the forum.

Your a stormy magnet Quagmelson, I think we need you up in the Hunter for a week or two!! laugh

Looks like some handy falls around the place, nothing here overnight, I did get up a few times during the night to look out the window to see if there was any action and there was nothing here to see.

Hopefully today can produce the goods.

Current weather is overcast and still, Temp 22.7c, Dewpoint 21c Humidity 88%.

Got a very nice light show out of that cell, that more or less developed out of nothing. No Rain or Thunder initially, but constant CG/CC lightning. Rain and Thunder started in the early hours of the Morning, around 20mls here from that smile

Managed 7.5mm and a nice freshen up, but so close to the heavy stuff, which was all south. Light show for hours in the wee hours...

The upper low is basically centred right over me this afternoon. This could create some nice convergence areas and the potential for some heavy rain and flash flooding or it could just mean that the bulk of everything stays north in the more westerly shear. Can only hope. Would love 75mm from a slow convergence....

Cloudy but brightening up here, enough to start the cicadas. I noticed when I got up that it had been raining. Just checked the radar now. Storms had reached Northern Sydney as far the Hornsby area around 4:00, but apparently not further South. Chatswood picked up 8 mm, although Sydney OH only managed 0.4. There were good falls in Sydney's North and West: Penrith 40 mm; Richmond 37; Hornsby 26.

I slept through it.

Beacon Hill got a brief downpour shortly after 4. Gutters overflowing and one pathetic distant rumble of thunder.

Sun is breaking through more frequently in the CBD now. Hopefully this trend continues. Two days of gloomy overcast is enough thank you very much.

Definitely a north shore and north west event.
I experienced same as Quagmelson - heavy rain, close lightning strikes, window rattling thunder that seemed to roll on for ages, all in that 2- 5.00 am period.
There's no way anyone around here could have slept through it, that's for sure. It was incredibly loud. A real surprise.

Had a look at the Dubbo temperature 'spike'. It coincided with an easing of winds and brief slowing of the rain rate, so it seems plausible to me (or at least internally consistent).

Penrith has a temperature again.

Wonder if it was instrument or comms fault.

Hoping for the latter and fearing it was the former.

Stifling humidity today, even though it's not particularly warm.

And the reason why the weather has closed in to make for an overcast crappy afternoon.
There's a total lunar eclipse!

Joke is on Sydney weather though - we wouldn't have seen it anyway.

A near stationery cell over Karuah early this afternoon dropped 44mm in just as many minutes according to a PWS in Karuah.

Meanwhile just 15km further east, nothing.

Some of the rain totals have been way above what BOM forecast. Particularly last night with the storms we had here. Storms weren't even in the forecast last evening, yet it was a cracker here.
For us here in the west, it was "chance of a shower. 0-2 mm's Some places received over 40 mm's. The same has happened today.
This one has certainly caught the BOM out.

I know it didn't catch GringosRain out, he was spot on the money.
But its has been a hit and miss event so far for a lot of places, get under a storm and its jackpot time.


Now thats said, I will get a storm tonight and get the mini jackpot, 0.2mm!!

The storms came during the wee hours of the morning. Which BoM did mention that there were possible storms in the morning and afternoon.

Thanks Eddy. Yeah they were a bit behind the 8 ball on this one. GFS was playing with it a bit, but not so much Access, so the BOM only really upgraded their forecast late yesterday I think.

It would have been nice if the upper feature was a bit stronger, but because it isnt that strong, the rain areas and storms have been more scattered. Last nights complex though was a pearler and those that were under it should be very happy. Thing is the same areas keep getting it. I know folk on the central coast hinterland near mangrove and they recon its wet and all the creeks are flowing (that was before last night)
Still horrible here, marginal respite at best.
Waiting for our surprise.....

After three virtually sunless days, we have sunny skies with a bit of low cloud drifting in from the NE. It's up to 27 at Sydney OH and 25-27 at most Sydney sites. That light rain we had yesterday wasn't enough to register.

There are light Westerlies at the moment but they won't last. The seabreeze will most likely reach OH is about an hour and slowly work its way inland.

Sydney Airport registered 24 minutes of sunshine in the last 3 days. So nice to see blue sky again.

Harbour is glistening in the hazy sunshine today. The difference from yesterday cannot be overstated.

I can see some little towers way out to my SW, on radar there looks to be a cell that has developed out South of Bathurst.all other cells are from Barrington tops north, and they are moving further north.

The good news is Australia Day is looking fantastic in Sydney. Sunny and 33 degrees. Going for 35 up here on the Central Coast. I'm looking forward to that after the total gloomfest of the past few Australia Days.

I hope the southerly today has a storm with it, for the Hunter anyway.

We've been very lucky with the weather this year. Yes Australia day is looking fantastic, as was New Years Day and Christmas Day. Very rare that all 3 days are sunny so I guess we'll be waiting a long time for the next time we get all 3 days good. NY is usually pretty good but the other 2 are hit n miss.

Just heard some thunder, wtf!

Actually the hourly forecast last night did show storms from 6-9am but I ignored it. Must be riding the southerly or something.

Yes - hot and sunny as it damn well should be.
Unfortunately a big fail for the cricket test match - match was drawn due to southerly scum and drizzle stopping play.

Quite a few significant events that rely on the weather in Summer. In February the Mardi Gras festivities round it off and then we fade into Autumn and hopefully another Indian Summer.

I just got woke by the thunder. Looks like it didn't really have much rain in it for my place. Wish i woke up earlier as it would be interesting to see it as a red core in the distant during sunrise.

I think that's it for storms here. The action passed to my East. It was rumbling for about an hour or so but that's passed. There was no rain here and just 0.4 in the CBD. There were falls of 1 to 3 mm about Sydney's South and East, 7 mm at Cronulla.

It's brightening up now and the cicadas are out.

We got a decent storm just as I was leaving for work, some loud flangs but didn't see the CG's as I was driving the wrong way. Brief heavy rain until about 3km from home, and yeah Brightside good idea, since I saw lots of morning walkers caught out in the rain, obviously not expecting a storm at 6:45am!!

Yeah Sidney I noticed that at Albion Park, pretty strange. The weather can be very weird sometimes and contradict what you would expect. The hot southerly has produced warmer temperatures than the whole week long heatwave we got. But southerlies can often be warmer than NEers in hot airmasses because you get a downslope effect until it weakens and swings around as an E or SEer.

These are good southerlies. grin

Kizz, drizzle ruining the cricket seems to be a mandatory occurence!

That southerly is howling. Lots of white caps on the harbour.

A southerly is only good for wiping out the upwelling on the beaches so it better be doing that.
Otherwise a lot of people's harbour cruise is being ruined for nothing.

Big storm passed through South Canberra now heading for North Canberra, it had strong winds and small hail with it and left 11.6mm of rain in my weather station slight topup for the rainwater tanks and the garden which has taken a beating with the 35C average max this month!

It's quite windy now but still warm. The main effect of the Southerly was to stop it getting warmer. Penrith and Richmond made it to 35, while inland parts of the Hunter are now in the high 30s.

There were some interesting cloudscapes visible to the South and East earlier, now hidden by anvil cloud. There's a detailed warning for the cells near Katoomba (HEAVY RAINFALL, DAMAGING WINDS and LARGE HAILSTONES). Those storms are moving slowly to the NNE.

I'm expecting it to slowly cool down as the afternoon proceeds.

A real "train" of storms sitting right on the divide. Somebody is going to get a big total from this.

It WILL NOT be Shellharbour however. Blue sky still, but southerly scud is trying to take over.

How often do we get a squall line moving east to west through the inland, probably a one in few year event. Crazy radar loop.

Grim out there. It appears the weather thinks it is the 26th today.
On my way to the office I walked pass a group of tourists getting on a bus bound for the Blue Mountains. Felt sorry for them. Should have said don't bother getting on as you won't see sh1t.

The SST haven't budged. Crowdy Head has actually gone back to down to 18 which should impress Eddy no end. Not.

I'm off to the 50 thread and will be watching the SA obs today.

Yep, not an ideal day for the ice cream vendors nor for mowing lawns either, luckily the humidity is the 90% range.

And as for the water temp it has less than 48 hours to get its act together!!

Need to relocate the Crowdy Head one. I have only surfed there once and the water was ice bucket challenge in March !

There is something about the underwater topograpghy there.

The ice cream vendors need to head west to SA/VIC!

We're currently making our way back to Syd after a week on Kangaroo Island, stopped in Renmark at the moment, then a 1 nighter in Hay tomorrow night before the dash home on Aus Day! Looks like we will core punch the heat pool on our way to Hay tomorrow, will be interesting to see how high it gets across the plains. Thankfully the car is only 6 months old, so the a/c is frigid, although if it gets as high as they say then I will have to roll down the windows at some point to fully immerse myself in the oven like air. cool

You'd be mad not to roll the windows down. Historic stuff, so I'd say it is compulsory to turn a/c off and experience it in full. A good story to tell later on. "I was there when ...".

Be sure to bring some back to Sydney. Getting sick of watching all this heat and missing out.

Yeah that was cracker of a day. Was a Friday just to make it all the better. Had a long lunch and walked around the city to savour it all.

It was a Christmas miracle that the sea breeze stalled on the beaches and didn't get to Obs Hill until nearly 3pm or something.

I'd be more inclined to get the missus drop you 5ks out from the nearest town and experience the walk in such beautiful heat. Then years later down the track you could alway say you broke down on the hottest day and had to walk 5ks to the nearest town!!

Cloud here is trying burn off, can see bits of blue.

Hmmm, Eddy with visibility less than 100mtrs at 230am. Sounds like a good night! Humidity levels have been crazy this January. Usually its a drier heat. Nothing like sweat dripping off your nose at 5 in the morning at work.

Cloudless and calm skies over the basin.

Just watched the P&O Pacific Explorer cruise ship sail in under the bridge on its way to the White Bay berth. The decks were crowded.

Now that's the way to show off the place; steamy, tropical sunshine with no wind. Much better than yesterday's nonsense.

No very quiet night actually. Humidity was 98% and the dewpoint was within 0.3c at its closest to the temperature, overnight low was 21.1c.

"Mostly sunny. Winds northerly 15 to 20 km/h turning northeasterly 20 to 30 km/h in the afternoon, reaching 45 km/g near the coast."

Sydney's forecast for today. Didn't realise we measured wind by km's per gram wink.

Haaah youre not wrong Eddyg, I think a Cat 4 just for tonight. But tomorrow night we're in for a nasty CAT 5 shocked

Gee that wind felt heavy earlier this arvo, pieced right through me with each gram travelling about 45km from off the coast so it was just absurd. Hopefully this phenomena clears just in time for tomorrow...

Ulladulla picked up 20mm from tonights storm complex over the south coast/illawarra. Things looking interesting around the Nowra area, appears as though it's mid-high level stuff which would give a pretty good CG display for those out and about.

Really great lightning around Nowra late last night (10 pm till midnight) thick white bolts and hardly a drop of rain. I got some good ones on video, my battery was only half charged so it ran flat which cost me but at least I got some sleep.

This storm season has really delivered around here, even days that look average have produced good storms.

Nice lightning video LC.

There's a fairly gusty Southerly change passing through Sydney's South, about 20 knots.

EDIT: a number of locations in the Hunter are on 40-42. The change won't be there for a while.

Here's the visible satellite view on "Layers" a little after 3:00PM:



It shows storms over the Southern Highlands and a line of low cloud (a roll cloud?) off Sydney's Northern Beaches which I think marks the position of the Southerly.

Anyone see it? I saw a bank of scud cloud off to the East but it seems to have cleared, at least for now.

I dont suppose anyone has ever done a dew point average. I think this January would win some kind of prize. First 100mm shadings appearing on catchment "since 9am". Has fallen in perfect area of catchment too for least loss.

"The Dam" is actually over 60%. Warragamba is currently at 62% capacity.
It's the whole Sydney catchment that is under 60% - currently at 59.9%.

I heard a couple of douche bag right wing commentators going off about this today on the radio.
"Why are they starting up the de-sal plant when the level isn't below 60%"? They were again, mistakingly only looking at the figure for Warragamba, and that is what they quoted. Such ill-informed dumb arses.
It wouldn't take much for people to guess which radio station it was.

It was rumbling away for a good part of the arvo but everything seems to be to the north and south of here like usual.
Radar isn't looking to good for here either but further south should get the goods.

No, I certainly wasn't. I was referring to the dj's.
Apologies if you took it that way. It certainly wasn't intended in your direction.

I get cranky though when misinformation is spread amongst a gullible public, the type that believe every word they hear. I know you're not one of them. Sorry if I didn't type my thoughts properly.

It certainly is Gandalf! Its all good Homer, im probably too skeptical on the matter, robust debate is good. Im aware overall is under 60%, i dont believe the figures. The more questions i ask, the more skeptical i become. Like wifey said, just have a beer and enjoy the show 🍻

Yep, also enjoying a beer myself, and yes, I share your scepticism.
I too, also thought it should never have been built in the first place, and was only decided upon for political gain at the time, playing on the fears of the gullible.
It was always going to rain again, and the dams were also going to fill again - as they did.
My belief is that they would have been better off spending the money on another dam, but to this day, and until the day I die, I don't think we'll ever see that again. The minority greenie wankers will see to that.

The other plans on the table pre construction time was also, a/ to subsidise water tanks in higher (very dependable) rainfall areas, and b/ increased b-water infrastructure to all new developments and subsidising already built.

Some decent totals building up in Sydney South of a line from about La Perouse to about Bilpin. Nothing Northwards.

Smallwood' Crossing (never heard of it - in the catchment West of Picton) has picked up 104 mm this afternoon.

Nothing happening here. Any view is obscured by scud cloud.

EDIT1: a red cell just popped into exitence over Avalon. Marts will be pleased.
EDIT2: not sure where we'd put another dam. Anyway, it would take 10+ years to build.

NW rain/lightning/thunder train has broadened and looks like a big cell is going to soak the dry bits north of the Bilpin-Cronulla line that has copped it for the last few hours

Just a bit of sheet lightning about, no thunder. However, a swarm of cells is developing to the North, surely one of those will score a hit.

Bankstown, under a train of storm cells, has received 33 mm tonight.

Must be very high based storms because despite the copious amount of lightning, the thunder is very muted.

I've just been looking into the sky during lightning flashes and they are indeed high based storms. Clouds are clearly visible as there is no scud present atm. Still getting a flash a second or two.
The next larger cell heading in from the north west might provide a bit more action if it doesn't die hitting the basin.
Steady light rain here at the moment. The rain drops are large. Still just above 25 deg's, so that southerly was pretty useless in its attempt at cooling things down.

It was bucketing down for a while, with gutters running, but it's eased off for now. Occasional lighting hidden by cloud, some deep rumbles and rolls.

Feels like tropical QLD here, I've never felt such a warm humid night here. Almost 11pm and it's 25°C with 24°C dew point. Might as well stay up half the night because sleeping will be very difficult atm.

It’s a steamy tropical night, 25 degrees, light steady rain, sheet lightning and rumbling thunder. The lightning's getting more frequent and the thunder's getting louder, deep rumbles and rolls. It's been going for a while. Not much rain yet, just 3 mm in Chatswood.

It's warm, humid and overcast with light Southerlies. I was woken just on midnight by a succession of bright flashes and loud cracks after a few hours of mostly low intensity storms.

The main action bypassed the North Shore and inner suburbs, with Chatswood finishing on 6 mm. Many sites in Sydney's West and South got over 25 mm, Bankstown 37 mm.

Last night was very Darwin build up esk with lightning for hours and oppressive mid 20's dew points!

Currently running well above average for both min/max temps here despite us not seeing even a whiff of westerly.

Max - 29.2c
Min - 21.0c

This is a whole 1.2c above last Jan for max and 1.5c for min.

Came into Sydney today expecting a nice cool day with southerlies and with a usual scud fest down to a 80 metres.

But sike, it was uncharacteristically humid and warm. Also being at 86.6 mm for the month, upon arriving back everything is lush and green.

Thought I would gather some stats around the basin for January and found I had to compile this rather sad list of missing data.

Sydney Harbour - Temp, Wind
Sydney Olympic Park - Rain
Badgerys Creek - everything
Holsworthy (Defence) - Rain, Wind
Penrith - Temp, Rain, Wind
Terrey Hills - Temp, Rain, Wind

Granted, lightning strikes affected Badgerys but over the years these AWSs seem incredibly unlucky with lightning strike stats.
Apart from that I hear these official AWS units are very expensive.
I reckon some of the PWS networks have more reliable instruments and data feeds.

Maybe the BOM should get Davis Vantage Pros. I installed mine nearly five years ago and it has been running almost perfectly ever since. The only thing I have ever changed is a small part in the anemometer which set me back about the same amount as a round of drinks for a few mates.

PS Sun and cicadas have just appeared hear.

Yes the missing data is a worry. Lightning strikes are a fact of life here. And, of course, equipment breaks down from time to time. However, it does seem to take a while to get things fixed. Holidays? Staff and Budget constraints?

Anyway, Sydney OH, the Airport, Bankstown and Richmond have complete records for January.

Bankstown is tracking 21.3 - 32.1, for anomalies +3.1, +3.7. The effects of today's and tomorrow's max will cancel out, while the last two days will be hot. The final position will be something like 21.3 - 32.2, both new records (by +1.0 and +0,4 respectively).

EDIT: sun and cicadas are out here too. OH has made its forecast max of 27. Most of Sydney 25-27, the Airport, exposed to Southerlies, is only on 24.

No southerly here, just a gentle noreaster.
The southerly came through around 7.30pm last night and had no real effect on the temperature, but by 2am this morning it was a norwester with those decaying storms and not a drop of rain either.
I will post some pics later.

This Southerly is just recycling hot air that's spent a bit of time over the Ocean. In these conditions, a Southerly is warmer than a NE'er at OH because it's crossed more land. The Airport is more exposed to Southerlies and therefore cooler.

The real cool change arrives Thursday afternoon.

P.S. Today seems like the sort of day that would be good for storms. There's an active cell South of Blaney. Maybe more will develop.

P.S2. OH just topped 30, for the 10th time this month and the fourth day in a row. No big deal at most sites but quite unusual there.

A few cells have developed out west but not expecting to much here but you never know.

Last night was a bit odd as mentioned as there was not that much thunder involved, only 2mm recorded here but I'm sure it was more than that.

Brilliant pics Eddy.

Our dialect in regards to southerlies has changed a lot this summer. The terms scumtherlies and scudtherlies have been replaced with hot and sneaky southerlies.

And as said above, yes another hot southerly. 29 at Albion Park and it's even fully cloudy too.

This mornings SYD sounding has some decent shear - 15kts NW at 600hpa, increasing to 25kts at 500hpa and then to 40kts at 400hpa from a more N/NW direction. Should be enough to carry these cells to the coast. No significant capping either.

This is probably the best explanation for why the Southerlies are burning hot and humid. Waters just of the coast are bang on average 23-24, even a little less than average. But just a little bit of the coast the East Australian Current is powering through keeping temps of 26 degrees parallel to the Coast down to Batemans Bay.

--------

Also looks like missed some killer storms yesterday if Warragamba Dam didn't see a top up I would be surprised with Small Woods Crossing picking up 105mm and it was just adjacent to the Dam.

We wouldn't have the video of the Kurnell tornado if the desal plant wasn't built so definitely worth it in the end. poke

As for those hot or warm southerlies, I would think that the source is the predominant reason why they are still warm. As steve777 already mentioned, they are recycled warm air circulating around and around.
I have seen many a cool to cold southerly wind when the EAC is pumping tropical water down the Tasman. The reason it was cold was the source was southern maritime. All things being equal in the upper atmosphere the warm water creates more surface convection and showers when a southern maritime southerly blows over a warm Tasman sea. The wind is still cool.

Great lightning shots Eddy.

I don't have anything like that. Here's a distant view of the Picton cell mid afternoon yesterday, enhanced to billy-o to filter out glare and capture at least some structure:



The scudtherlies and scumtherlies will probably be back Friday and Saturday.

Re desalination, at this time of year I'd wait a few months to see how Autumn goes before turning it on.

There are a lot of cumulus clouds about, moving and forming from the ene/ne, not the low stratus type. These clouds have some vertical development. Also developing storms to the far northwest of the Sydney basin.

Clear blue skies, cicadas, humid and breezy here after another warm night, the 9th consecutive night for Sydney OH at or above 22 rounded and the 18th at or above 21 rounded. That's what keeps homes warm - not much cooling overnight,

Last night's SE'er turned NE overnight and didn't stop, just dropped a little around dawn. The seabreeze is fully established near the coast now, Sydney OH is now actually cooling down, will probably not be as warm as yesterday, but everywhere else will be, possibly by a big margin.

Sydney's forecast has just been updated, still going for 30/39 at the City / Penrith, with the possibility of a thunderstorm in the West.

EDIT:
Looking as sea temps, MHL is showing temps off Sydney mostly hovering around 22, about average, with brief excursions above 23. A couple of days ago it spiked above 24: MHL Sydney

Then we've got all that warm water a little further out - 26+.

Scored 48mm and some small hail yesterday. Just managed to finish mowing the lawn as CG's started landing close. A good fresh in the river this morning. We've been lucky lately!

Heres a screen dump from the webcam out at the airport looking west as it was giving us a flogging

Shame you can't fully predict where and when the storms will form or break down. poke

I was sort of half hearted trying to chase the storm activity in the Highlands on the way home from work but it appeared to break down anywway so I just drove home. If I'd known, I would've gone to Shoalhaven Heads where that big black cell just passed to the south.

The good storm chasers generally have a good idea wink and Im not one of them.

But thats the beauty of chasing to see what the storms potential is, you should have chased.

WR where is your storm counter? I know the Illawarra have had some lean years, no doubt this season is one of the better ones for down there??

Hahah true Eddy, and yes I should have chased for sure. Hindsight is always a wonderful thing though.

I haven't been counting the storms, I was sort of doing it but lost count and a lot of times where there were suspected storms, I wasn't home to confirm. But I'm sure there have been a lot. It has been one of the best seasons for storm consistency but we've yet to have a really severe storm in the form of extreme strong winds or large hail, but storms like that are not that common here anyway.

And yeah great pics btw Con

Another good one.

The general weather forecasts for the Illawarra area looks very conservative but instability is very high similar to today, peaking around Nowra. What's the go? Is the CAP too strong or something? I feel like chasing tomorrow arvo especially if the lightning rate will be very high. And that leads to another side question: is there actually a way of determining how lightning active a storm day will be?

That's a really interesting question. I've seen instances where there are huge hailstorms with little lightning, but black on the radar.

I remember in March 2015 I was looking at the radar and saw a tiny squall line stretching from Campbelltown to about Penrith moving east with only a bit of yellow and blue - I thought to myself "probably not a storm" especially since it didn't look dark and ominous at all, but that thing threw out so many sparks as it passed over Parramatta.

There was an incredible amount of lightning bolts - some probably 100m away since I could even hear the "crack" of lightning. And there were some strange blue flashes that lasted 2-3 seconds in that storm. It was so electrically charged. Yet the rain rates were very modest.

So to take a wild guess I'd say maybe the humidity has something to do with lightning rates, and maybe also in the updraft of the storm how much collisions between the water and ice there is - maybe there is some ratio of water and ice colliding to really set up a good charge within the cloud.

Nice pic Con M.

On the point of the the rate of lightning strikes but I feel it depends on the days of heat and humidity as lighting storms are a great equaliser of charge which can build over days.

Thanks for the responses, yes there do seem to be high lightning rates in hot and humid weather. But I have also seen very little lightning in the same conditions. I have also seen high lightning rates in cold air storms in the middle of winter. Maybe there is no certain answer to the question, could be a combination of things.

I’ve always looked for a little drier air around 600 or so helps dry the hail 🤷🏻‍♂️ too moist and it’s microburst-athon

Yeah, sorry my point was that - it seems you need dry hail for great active sparky storms. From what I’ve observed in Top End storms their active beast days always has a drier slot 600 or above. The moist monsoonal flow isn’t anywhere near as lightning active and usually is only cgs within the rain shaft.

Another mild night, 23.3c was the low temp even with that nor-easter breeze blowing all night but there was plenty of cloud cover during the early hours of this morning which probably helped the warmth.
That cloud did make for a rather nice sunrise.

Thanks WR, Araluen is known for its peaches and heat during summer, consistently 2 to 3 degrees warmer than Braidwood which is the closest AWS so summer can be brutal at times, very much like Richmond in Sydney to a degree (pardon the pun!) 9 months of the year is is stunning.......then hot and stunning! Currently sitting on 30 according to my little weather station and will probably hit 40 again this arvo.

At 160m above sea level Araluen should be pretty warm.

I always wondered what the weather would be like at Burragorang before it was dammed. The area lies very low and it had mountains that would slow down the sea breeze and at the same time its further out west than Penrith. Id expect pretty hot temps pretty much everyday in summer while the valley would provide frosts during winter.

You have to wonder what it is, given those things cost ~$50K or so?? (last heard).

Home wx station costs $500-$1K far more reliable.

That cloud kept temperatures down and probably blocked convection. It still felt very hot and humid away from the breeze.

Sydney OH only made 28 today, compared to the forecast 31 - surprised the BOM stuck with that in the mid-morning update. There might be a bonus addition tomorrow morning. Richmond and other outer West centres made about 34 (forecast 38).

Tomorrow's forecast has been upped to 38 for the City, 40 for Richmond. Maybe it will be a bit less humid with Westerlies. The cool change is now expected late.

After the change, we flip into a different pattern, cooler and wetter. Highs to the South will be stronger.

Looks like the January heat thread has been temporarily locked.
Shame really, because it was a valid thread and I hope it in part returns, albeit, moderated and edited to leave all the relevant posts and documented records.

The OP had the right intentions. It's a shame it was hijacked by trolls.

Geez, despite todays forecast max temps not being reached, it was a damn sweaty one again. It's been unbelievably uncomfortable working outside this January - one of the worst months I've ever experienced in my tradesman life. Perspiration was literally dripping off me today. There's only so many timesI could wipe my forehead and face with my sleeve and t-shirt today before it becomes pointless as the shirt is just as wet.
I'm really looking forward o the southerly tomorrow, and the upcoming somewhat cooler period.

It was great hey, I really enjoyed working up a sweat mowing lawns, normally it takes a lawn or two to work up a sweat but it was dripping of me before I even started the whipper snipper!! I kept hydrated during the day and now the beers are going down like a treat!! grin


That Nor-easter still going strong.

Edit - Homer would have been doing hand-stands this morning, I know I was!!

Re the overcast skies? Yes, I knew it was going to help somewhat, but geez mate, it was still a shocker. I can't ever remember a January with such prolonged high humidity combined with high temps. I've always equated Feb as the really humid month. Even March.

Although I was out of the country for a week this heat is a little bit irritating, given i endured the heat while missing the storms for the most part. Last week was recorded as the most humid week in 15 years so we have the figures backing us up.
Anyways rather enduring some humidity for a decent drop for me is worth imo far better than last Jan. But I feel bad for those working outside or putting up with the heat without much rain.

There's only so many timesI could wipe my forehead and face with my sleeve and t-shirt today before it becomes pointless as the shirt is just as wet.


Edit - Homer would have been doing hand-stands this morning, I know I was!!


Re the overcast skies? Yes, I knew it was going to help somewhat, but geez mate, it was still a shocker. I can't ever remember a January with such prolonged high humidity combined with high temps. I've always equated Feb as the really humid month. Even March.


I'm pretty over the heat and humidity too actually, it's the consistency that gets tiring. Working all day in it and then sweating all night in the hot house is also not enjoyable. But I am starting to become used to it now because I'm constantly hot. The only reprieve is my air conditioned car on the way to and from work or swimming in the ocean.

PS: I can't see the heat thread locked? Maybe it was just opened back up.

Ah thats alright, a good come back, 1 nil down after just 24 seconds to win 2 -1 with only 23% of possession!! A famous win indeed.

Wave Rider, what do you do for a crust?

Looks like another mild night is on the cards, still 26c with a fairly stiff nor-easter blowing plus a near enough sky full of cloud.

Working in this heat day after day is simply almost unbearable. We outsiders don't have the luxury of an air-conditioned office all day.

I laugh when the ex complains about the heat, yet she drives to work in an air conditioned car, works all day in an air conditioned office, and then returns home to an air conditioned house. FMD!!!!


As for the heat thread, when I was logged on before the reply box wasn't there. It is now, so I'm not sure what happened.

Definitely agree about the humidity in Sydney. I'm only 20 so don't really have much recollection from before the mid-2000's but this has definitely been the most humid summer I can remember; probably why we are seeing constant min temps above 20.

So far I've recorded over half the month with morning cloud cover above 7 oktas - so along with humidity the cloud is keeping min temps warm.

There haven't really been proper dry north westerlies so the humidity has just mixed in with the heat over the past month with nothing much to flush it out.

Yeah it's strange when people that work and live in aircon complain about the heat. I think if I was in an environment with aircon all the time I'd like a bit of warmth in me every now and then. I find most air conditioned places too cold tbh.

Eddy I'm a tyre fitter most of the time while I'm not at Uni. It's up in the Highlands and it has been very hot and humid there lately. It wouldn't be nearly as bad as Homer's situation, being in a cooler area and the workshop is mostly covered from the sun. Not so unbearable during the day down here but the nights are not cooling things down so the house is just constantly warm.

I'm the same age Jacob and I agree its more humid consistently than I can remember. This also would surely have to be the hottest for mins too. Most of the time we get below 20 easily at night with the nearby escarpment but I can't remember the last time it happened, maybe 2 weeks ago.

What a fantastic post! When I was 20, there was none of all this info from the internet. In fact, the internet didn't even exist!!

I used to wait till dad got home from work with the daily newspapers, and I would cut the synoptic charts out of the paper. That was my learning and education re the weather, besides observations, and learning from people like Alan Wilkie and Mike Bailey on the evening news bulletins.(Even though he was a meteorologist, and even as a kid, I thought Alan Wilkie was useless). Mike Bailey who was just a journalist, was far more informative on the ABC.

You are so lucky at your age to have so much information readily at hand. Geez, I even used to get sat pics faxed to me from the BOM, (which was high tech then) and which was added to the parents phone bill. I only ever did it when I thought there might be a rain event imminent. Lol.

You know what mate? I commend you. Doing the hard yards while you are young. It's tough [censored], I know, but you'll be the better for it in the long run.
It certainly has been a shocking January, whatever part of NSW we all live in.

I used to do the same RE waiting for Dad to bring the Daily Tele home from work(this was the early/mid 90's). I would flick straight to the weather page to see the synoptic chart and the expected highs/lows for NSW. In the summer my mind always boggled at the 40c+ temps and pretty red shading through western NSW. Ahh the good old days! ha ha

Mean 3pm dew point in Bankstown has been about 20C, which has to be a record. Don't think it's been that high at OH, let alone in the west.

Thanks Homer - it's really interesting how different it was back then when the only sources of weather were newspapers and T.V. When you couldn't just flick open the BOM obs page to see the current temps and all the data we have access to now along with all the weather models.

I remember when I was 5 or 6 in the early 2000's, when the internet access still wasn't as widespread as it is today (plus we only had one computer), my dad showed me how to get the weather forecast from teletext, but a few years later I realized the internet was much better - Hard to imagine weather forecasting without it now!

Until 2017 I would usually only watch the news for the weather and occasionally use the BOM website. But thanks to all the helpful fellas on this forum I've been able to learn about everything in leaps and bounds.

Looks like a Black Nor Easter event lining up from about Monday but i'm unsure about the level of the rainfall totals, might be a good dam filler imo. Honestly we've had almost every type of weather pattern Spring-Summer period from winter cut-off to summer troughs. The only things left to check off are a Black Nor Easter and a Proper ECL.

Looks like a rerun of yesterday so far: overcast, a NE'er that didn't stop all night and 23 degrees. I was hoping for a nice sunrise, but things didn't quite line up, with a warm, murky night oozing into a warm, grey dawn.

The flags on the Harbour Bridge seem to be showing a light N-NW wind. How hot we finish the month in Sydney will mainly depend upon what happens with that streaming NW cloud band (or maybe it's a 'ribbon').

----

Many Sydney sites, probably most, will finish with their warmest average minimum on record for any month. OH will have finished at 21.7, just eclipsing the old record set in January 2017.

The skies cleared around 3am this morning allowing the overnight temp to drop to 21.8c, even the Nor-easter decided to take a well earned break around 6am after blowing its head off for the past 3 or 4 days, but it won't be long before its starts again.

Like Steve777, I too was hoping for a nice sunrise but a thick cloud was way out on the eastern horizon.

I think back in the day the papers used to be The Daily Mirror and The Telegraph which I think merged in the early 90s to become the Daily Telegraph??

A lot blank post in the NSW January 2019 Heat Extravaganza laugh

The tone in here is refreshing!

Dipole - amazing photos thank you! You and Eddy have it covered.

Homer - yes. Threads need to encourage contributions and membership not undermine their own potential.

CoastalStorm22 - I did the same!!!! I used to clip out daily snow reports during winter and compare the data in an exercise book, keep the synoptic charts and forecasts lol. Used to call in my rain and temp results from own my weather station to Win TV wollongong.

JaCob - it's a lifelong bug searching for more and more info! How many nights have I found myself ready for bed but still checking the radar, or obs nationally or BoM stats or UKMet or ...

Steve777 - going for another 30+ here but a 23 forecast tomorrow - importantly a 13 minimum! Starting to notice later sunrise now too.

Flags on the bridge (Harbour and Glebe Island) are indicating a stiff NNW.
Still as on the streets of the CBD.

That annoying ribbon of cloud looks to be slowly shifting to the NE so we may get a sunny day eventually. Or it might just be my wishful thinking.

Anyway, cloud clears, NW wind mixes down to ground and stays that way & late southerly. Could I dare hope the planets align and we sneak in a 40+ here?

I am 62 and agree this is the most humid summer I can recall. Lucky that I live 1.5km (straight line) from ocean, and just 200m from Lake Illawarra, which has keep most days sensible side of 30C, but only just.

I'm older and ditto.

Late January into February 2011 was similar. It featured a record minimum, a 40+ and a run of 6 30+ for Sydney OH. It was also a cloudy month in spite of the heat, like this one.

January 2019 has featured consistency of the heat and especially the humidity, but no near-records in Sydney.

Minima: all but 2 over 20. Warmest 23.5, which is no big deal.

Maxima:
- Two cool days (22 and a bit), the only two maxima under 25.
- All but 3 days reached 26.
- All but 6 days reached 27.
- 11 days 30+ (including today),

P.S. the clearing edge is passing over here now and the Sun's out.

Still hanging onto a NE wind here, around 30C, but humidity "only" 60%, normally this would be high enough.

Several coastal sites now under NW winds, Moruya and Newcastle, Moruya 35C, but humidity is just 34%

Here's a picture showing the change, a sharp line off cloud off the South Coast from just South of Ulladulla. That NW-cloud band is still near Gosford.



The change passed through Moruya about 12:50 and has yet to reach Ulladulla. They tend to speed up after Jervis Bay (when 3 hours from Sydney). My guess for Sydney would be around 6:30 - 7:30 PM.

P.S. Penrith' back and closing in on 40. OH has been to 37.8 (100 F).

I can see that clearing edge from here, but it's taking it's time to clear that's for sure.
Temps are quite warm considering we are under cloud.
I think that southerly will be quite sometime before it reaches here.

Long live the southerly! It's dropped to below 20c, I couldn't help think this morning when it was 17c and drizzly that in a few months 17c will feel balmy once we get high pressure induced -1s and -3s most mornings in outer Sydney.

It's below 20 at Sydney OH for the first time in 25 days. There's been a bit of rain overnight, 2 mm at Chatswood.

We're in a different pattern now. Two days of solid overcast but not much rain (I don't believe the forecast maxima of 24,and 27). A bit of a warmup then a mixed bag, although there doesn't appear to be serious rain or serious heat in the next 10 days or so. Maybe storms.

Here's another portrait of the Southerly from the Doppler radar, this time as it approached Newcastle. It had enough oomph to push as far as Lithgow by then:

It was surprising how quickly it was penetrating inland compared to others that seem to take ages just to make the western suburbs of Sydney after they hit the coast. I.e. Lithgow at the same time as Newcastle is a little surprising

Ok you cold lovers have had your fun with this southerly buster, time for the heat to return. poke

Nice screen shot Steve777, it was amazing watching the doppler in real time last night.

We did dip below 20c last night only just 19.9c was my overnight low. The winds this morning have backed right off, under 10kmph for the last hour or so and must have been pretty strong at times last night as there is plenty of leaf and small branches down everywhere, my station only recorded a gust 48.3kmph though.

1.3mm of drizzle too!!

Loc: Eden, NSW
Hello all, first time poster, having been a reader for a number of years. From a lovely picturesque little town called Eden down the bottom of the NSW Far South Coast.

All quietened down again now here after one of the more interesting weeks in recent times. Just as well since I fly to Melbourne this arvo!

Plenty of thunderstorm activity after what had been a fairly quiet summer locally. We tend to miss a lot of the storms to the north or south, but we copped a couple of direct hits this week. Unfortunately didn't get any photos this time, but Wednesday evening's storm was a cracker, lots of lightning and plenty of heavy rain. Yesterday's change was nothing special for us though. Nothing like what occurred further up the coast that's for sure!

Also in the Commercial Fishing Industry, fishing has been absolutely terrible recently, thanks in part to the drought (as odd as it might sound) and to an abnormal cold water current pushing up into the east coast over the past month or so. This current has also influenced some of the cold water temps at beaches, as mentioned above. The good news is, apparently this current is likely to move offshore over the next couple of weeks.

Welcome SapphireCoast82. I don't think theres anyone on here that lives that far south so would be interested to see your observations smile.

Bit of a drizzle has arrived here allowing the temp to drop about 1c. A very welcome change today compared to the past few weeks. Currently still 26.6c indoors but it feels fantastic.

Yes, welcome SapphireCoast82. Eden is a beautiful place. I've only stayed there one night, on a road trip early this century. Had a meal and a couple of beers in the Eden Fishermens' Club.

It will be good to have reports from the far South Coast.

So it is currently a drizzly 19 in Sydney (truly disgusting*) and the forecast, just posted, is for a minimum of 21 overnight.

The only way I can read that is we are at the coldest it is going to get right now and it can only warm up from here into the evening. Which is a good thing isn't it EddyG?

*True to form, the outdoor lunar festivities begin around the city today and the weather is crap. I know one guy performing outdoors tonight in the festival and he said they can't perform if it is wet. So good on you Sydney weather, you have ruined things again.

This is exactly right, I know we need the rain but its been a disaster for ice cream vendors today and probably also a publican's nightmare tonight. grin

Luckily there was cricket on TV today, I even had a little siesta after lunch.

Just the 0.2mm since 9am, top temp was 22.9c at 10am this morning, currently its 20.4c it has warmed up in the last half too by 0.1c, I can now turn the heater off laugh

Yeah welcome to you SC82, it's a very nice area down there. So one new member from Araluen and one from Eden now, they will make very good additions to the scope of the NSW forum.

I'm happy we had a cool day today, made working a breeze. Reached just 15°C up here. Keen for the return of mildly warm weather though and maybe a very hot day here and there but not 2 weeks straight of it.

There's been persistent light rain for several hours here, adding up to 3 mm so far (Chatswood).

I agree that the Sydney forecast looks odd, with a temperature range of 21-27, given that it was 19 when it was issued and has dropped to the low 18's since. Weather.com says 18-26. My guess, given the cloud is expected to stick around at least until late tomorrow afternoon, would be something like 23-24 but then we had 26-27 degree marine layer days in January. We'll see.

This is actually a common pattern I remember from past years, less common now. A very hot day, a Southerly Buster then a 'cold' day, often a run of them, before 'recovering' to average.

I remember this happened at the end of January 2015, where the 25th was mid-high 30's then a southerly came through dropping temps starting on the 26th. From the Parramatta climate data there were 3 days below 21 and drizzle then another 10 days or so of 24-28. A timely end to the school holidays that was grin

Heard exploding fireworks a little while ago, so the Chinese New Year festivities are underway in spite of the weather. Here is a Webcam view of Sydney Harbour about half an hour ago:

The rain rate has lifted, with some useful totals building, now up to 5 mm at Chatswood, 4.8 in the City.

Moderate drizzle here. I love that I still am close enough to the coast to get a decent sea breeze and decent drizzle which should acculturate if it keeps up. Just what the land need's after the heat.


Picture of the long cloud before landing in Sydney today, it's like a blanket. Off to the South Pacific tomorrow. smile

Cool pic Perfect Storm. Amazing the contrast, it's like we went from a Feb day to a June day within a 24 hr period.

11.8mm at Obs hill since 9am, some of the heaviest drizzle you'll witness around these parts laugh

Nice picture Perfect Storm. The marine layer looks much better from the other side.

It wasn't drizzle here last night but steady light rain. It's eased off for the moment. Chatswood has accumulated 19 mm. Across Sydney, falls have been over 10 mm East of about Olympic Park, falling away to a few millimetres in the outer West.

I see that the BOM has downgraded Sydney's forecast to 25. Makes more sense. It looks as though the temperature did rise overnight to about 21.

Solid overcast and very humid now. We've had our rain, so this cloud can go away now, but it will probably hang around until tonight.

Thanks everyone.

Some decent totals about the place, quite impressive given the weather feature. Wonder if the warmer sea temps out in the Tassie aided?

Off to the overseas passenger terminal now for my cruise on the Ovation of the Seas. First stop Noumea in New Caledonia on Tuesday and Mystery Island in Vanuatu on the Wednesday. Hoping to experience some tropical showers and/or thunderstorms. cool

Here's a quick video from a severe storm on the south coast Jan 29, the first storm travelled from west of Ulladulla south to where I intercepted it at Moruya. There were several other storms throughout the evening too but mostly difficult to film due to widespread rain an inconsistent lightning.

Nice picture Perfect Storm. I love how flat and far reaching that stratus layer is! Above it full sunshine and beneath it dank, dark drizzle.

The forecast looks very typical for the last month of summer: daily maximum temperatures in the high 20's to mid/high 30's every day with minimum temperatures in the low 20's for Western Sydney. Also a lot of humidity which I find peaks in February/March.

Hello all , had a drive down to sackville and back yesterday to see my son. We hit cloud and drizzle at yetholme which increased as we headed toward kurrajong. It was so very nice to feel the coolness and moisture of heavy drizzle. We got out for a coffee at bilpin and revelled in the conditions. It was humid but still drizzling at sackville/Maroota for the few hours we were there. Then a lovely cool moist trip home to Bx although as soo as we dropped down from yetholme it cleared and warmed to 27 rapidly.

Really enjoyed the coolness for a change, so nice. A return to low 30,s coming up this week but the nights hopefully will assist by dropping to around 18. Still well above average but a 17 degree morning beats 20 hands down 😁😁

Eddy, saw your photos in the heat extravaganza topic, methinks you have upgraded from a box brownie 👍👍

Welcome to sapphire, I love Eden, stunning place. Also echo thoughts re Steve, always an excellent contributor 👍

Thanks Dave and good to hear from you again.

The sun graced us with its presence for about an hour or so before sunset yesterday. It's back to clear skies today. It's now very warm and humid with a loud cicada chorus.

I've noticed on a couple of occasions I've been West on days like today that the cloud breaks up at Yetholme, which is on the Divide. On the Satellite picture, the clearing edge of marine layer cloud often etches out the Divide. It will cold, drizzly and foggy at Katoomba, cool and drizzly at Lithgow, warm sunny at Bathurst.

Unfortunately Yetholme is a two and a half hour drive away.

Thanks DaveM, good to hear from you.

Played cricket at Clarence town yesterday and had a couple brief rain delays, it got quite steamy when the sun come out.

Quite a warm and humid day here, even with the sea gale blowing, had a gust of 40kmph here and probably even stronger near the beach.

Some nice bolts in your vid Lightning Chaser!!

Was there much lightning in that storm DVC? Pulse storms between Goulburn and Golspie look nice on radar. I’m on holidays so might take the camera for a drive tomorrow, should be more slow moving storms.

They're really getting hammered up north, NW QLD must be an inland sea by now and more to come. Woolshed west of Townsville 1,725mm so far. Can't even imagine what that would look like anywhere in NSW.

yes have had steady light rain here since about 8am - unexpected - forecast says sunny morning chance of showers this arvo lol. 5.4mm in the gauge at 9 am. Expecting top of 33 which if so will be quite tropical!

160 mm for the calendar summer so far is not bad at all.

It's sunny and humid here, a rerun of yesterday, although not quite as warm as this time yesterday. There's a bit of high cloud about, with a cloud bank off to the South.

About 25-27 across Sydney, with the NE-er trying to get going.Sea temps off Sydney are still cool, a little over 21, having recovered from just above 20 a couple of days ago. The boundary of the cold water, about 20 km off the coast, shows up clearly of 'Layers' (enhanced infrared).

Mentioned a few days ago that this is the most humid summer I can recall. At home (no AC) I went to print a page on the ink jet and had a paper jam. Took me a while to work out as the paper was just not being picked up. It had swelled under the conditions of the last few weeks, and each page against the other did not slip. I had to feed the printer single page by page.

It really depends where it falls though there are some fast flowing rivers around the Mid-north Coast and adjacent areas along with rainforest. They may be reasonably well-versed. But then Lismore which is prone to flooding will be inundated.

Dropping it inland is a tricky one because the geography is poor for a fast removal of water, but then soil moisture is a record lows or well below average along with many dams and rivers like the darling struggling to flow so an interesting battle.

Drop it further South on Sydney it's like the 5th of August 1986 multiplied by a factor of 5 so I would leave it up to imagination. Note: That event saw 327.8mm in a period of 24 hours, absolutely insane.

Looking into the Illawarra looks like it would've surpassed the 1998 August floods so quite eerie thinking about it. The monthly rainfall of August in 1998 was Kiama 728mm and Darkes Forest 744mm so more than double that. Don't know much too much about it though not a local, but I found an excellent write-up by Ozthunder.
Ozthunder Diary 1998

I would imagine that every dam would be filled if you look on the bright side though. Again i've not been alive for the comparable events that may be sitting around.

I could see some distant towers away to the West when I was out and about earlier. There's a chain of cells over the Divide West of Sydney. They seem to be moving slowly Northwards. There's another cell South of Putty and a small cell just passed between Campbelltown and Waterfall, probably the source of the thunder Chapo heard.

We'll see what develops.

EDIT: no sign of any "Southerly" as such. Winds are N-NE on the Illawarra, more E-SE South of about Moruya.

For the second day in a row here - storms to the north, south, east and west, but nothing overhead. Seems to have been the theme here this summer. We only got 82mm in January (below average), while 154mm in Bathurst, 171mm at Bathurst Airport and 183mm at Mt Boyce were all well above. You can see how much greener it becomes when you drive down the hill to Hartley. Normally it's the other way around - it becomes browner and drier in the Kanimbla Valley.

58.7 mm this past January—about average. The usual dry summer.

Winter is always much wetter here (>120 mm), which is chiefly due to snowfall.

Awesome lightning from 8 - 10 pm last night around bungendore near Canberra. I’ll post a video when I can edit it. Shelf cloud pumping out bolts that were 10 km away at first but slowly closed in to 2 km away, not too much rain either. Michael (pingtang) was also in the area so keep an eye out for his video.

Lightning at night is the best because when filming it with a good high frame rate camera, you can see the return strokes much more clearly than during the day.

The minimum temperatures around the Sydney basin this morning were between 23°C-24°C with Observatory Hill and the airport at around 22.5°C. So the Western suburbs had higher mins than the Eastern suburbs this morning which is very unusual.

I noticed that too. I'd say that's a result of sea breezes continuing well into the evening, followed by a weak Southerly, possibly boosted by cool inshore Oceans.

It's been cloudy with a brisk Southerly (10-15 knots earlier, now dropping). The Sun's tried to break through a few times and is trying again now, urged on by the cicadas. It's about 25 near the coast, up to 27-28 inland.

Has also been pretty consistently warmer for mins here vs Bellambi as well. And yes it is usually the opposite way around in this area too with the average min being 17°C. Last night was well over 20 but not uncomfortable because the days have been fairly cloudy and not that hot so the house hasn't heated up much since the big southerly change.

It's cloudy today but still rather warm and muggy. We had light rain hanging around for a couple of hours just before but it has cleared now.

This summer reminds me of 2017 for minimum temps. Only rarely dropping below 20, which is quite different from last year when some short term sites had record low January temps (10c). Just hasn't been much of an opportunity to escape the warmth.

Southerly is blowing now in Sydney.

Models showing some heat and then a cool down next Tuesday and Wednesday, with the change coming Thursday. Only a small amount of rain. Access, EC and GFS mostly in agreement at this stage.

There are storms forming inland near Putty and Mangrove Mountain; they moving from east to west. Very unusual.

It would be interesting to construct something similar to a wind rose but showing the directions which storms come from and the frequencies for each direction in Sydney.

Sydney OH hasn't had any days over 30 in February so far, but 3 over 29. Even today spiked to 29.2 at OH, almost as warm as the last two days.

It's been mostly cloudy today where I was with some sunny breaks. I think it might have been clearer near the coast.

The forecast shows a continuation of the warm pattern, consistently above average but without much rain and no particularly hot days. The 'chance' of a thunderstorm is mentioned in the forecast for tonight and for 4 of the next 5 days.

I wouldn't mind these March-style temps if it weren't for the boring stability over the next week or so...nothing but 18°-22° C highs. January was beyond legendary, so February can go to buggery for all I care laugh

I'd like a bit more variability than this, however! For instance, a 7° C high followed by a 31° C high the day afterwards wink

Maybe you'd have to move to the North of the midwest USA to see that. grin

In spring they get that a lot; and single digit days following high 20's or low 30's.

From the synoptic charts it looks like the big high pressure systems are finally shifting southwards, which is flipping the weather around for several areas in Southern Australia.

This should have the effect of more moist easterly winds and milder temperatures in eastern Australia, which could be a welcome relief from all the heat in January.

From the forecasts, Hobart, Melbourne and Adelaide are looking much cooler for the next several days, especially compared to January, while Perth finally looks like getting one of it's heatwaves that it has lacked recently. So a definite pattern reversal and flip for most of southern Australia.

Also all that rainfall in Queensland is keeping those really hot temps away too; it'll be interesting to see how the rest of February pans out, then March.

Bright and sunny with a bit of high cloud about here, very warm and humid with light winds. It doesn't seem to have rained here overnight, although there were showers about Sydney, mostly Southwards. Heaviest fall seems to have been 9.4 mm at Holsworthy. Most falls were under 5 mm, with nothing registered at Chatswood.

I hate these screwed up shear profiles. They never seem to favour much for the coastal strip.

Having said that we did get a 5min shower last night at Shellharbour that was quite heavy, you could hear it coming across distant roofs for 5 mins before it arrived.

Last hour or so has seen some well offshore showers develop on the Newcastle radar, one or two if they last (a big if) may get to the Sydney / Illawarra coasts later.

That activity in the 50K ring SE quadrant on the Newcastle radar imo is just false echoes, from my vantage point it looks relatively clear.

The line of storms over W NSW/VIC will do wonders for the inland, very moist atmosphere out that way with big totals in some areas. Be interesting to see how far east the line progresses.

A cell just offshore southern Illawarra must be close to an isolated spark, has glaciated, but with crap shear, base and steering is going one way and anvil the opposite.

Thanks for the welcomes all. Just got home after spending 8 hours in a train and bus from Melbourne after an extended weekend away for my birthday. It appears I missed a bit aswell, Monday night saw thunderstorms again, before a very nice dump of rain again last night. 49mm rain recorded at Merimbula Airport and reports of around 90mm recorded in Lochiel, a small region of mostly properties and hobby farms in a valley around 20 minutes north west of Eden.

Not much really looks like happening today, though it is quite humid, but anything that is forming on the hills out west appears to be dissipating before it can really form. Tomorrow looks likely for a storm and Friday looking the best bet for some more action.

There were some interesting cloudscapes about earlier this afternoon, bubbly cumulus and a tower or two trying to get going, but it came to nothing. Here's a view from Macquarie Park with the Chatswood skyline in the foreground:



It didn't really come out - couldn't adjust away the glare. It looked better in real life.

It was quite warm and humid today, 31-32 on the car thermometer. Skies are now fairly clear with blowing low cloud. Tomorrow looks like being similar.

P.S. MHL shows Oceans off Sydney have recovering from their freeze of a few days ago (well almost down to 20). to peak just below 24 earlier today. It now seems to be on the way back down.

We need the eddies in the current to change shape and steer the water on to the coast rather than parallel to the coast.

At the moment the eddies seem to be working with any Ekmann transport to ensure the warm water stays offshore from the mid north coast and southwards.

About 5 or 6 very short, sharp showers last night in Shellharbour. Was quite surprise as around 5pm it looked like all offshore Cu was on its last legs, but closer to sunset it kicked on a bit.

This same thing happens every year where all that warm water swirls around in a big eddy offshore and never makes it to the coast. Bloody annoying!

GFS Stormcast seems to have a decent chance of storms for this afternoon and evening for the Sydney, Illawarra and inland, yet BOM have nothing at all. Tomorrow is still looking good for storms on both BOM and GFS

Today looks like a rerun of yesterday so far, another very warm night, now another sunny, warm, humid day with scattered cloud and a sea breeze. In this pattern, Eastern Sydney tends to get close to its maximum by around 10:00 AM and then hovers there until late afternoon, maybe spiking a degree or so.

Re ocean currents: I get the impression that where the coast bends Westwards between Seal Rocks and Newcastle, the East Australian current keeps on barreling Southwards, leaving Central and Southern NSW coastal waters to take care of themselves.

Re Thunderstorms: the thunderstorm outlook on Weatherzone looks good for late this afternoon / this evening, and also tomorrow.

Re temperatures: it looks like it will be quite warm tomorrow and Saturday (8th - 9th), then again Tuesday 12th, not last month's extreme heat but low to mid 30's, possibly reaching the coast. From mid-next week, it looks like an extended cooldown follows, with a week or more of SE winds, but not much rain. We'll see how it develops.

Hope not. We have Autumn for the cool down. Summer is for the heat lovers and there is still 3 weeks of that to go.

THe NE wind will provide a bit of a CAP on the coast. Steering winds are rather slow, but at least going in right direction today.

Having said that late evening or even night sees mid level temps drop a little, so may fire a few late ones?

Some rather decent looking thunderstorms on the mountains, plenty of lightning activity on the radar. Severe thunderstorm warning has been issued as well.

Here in Eden, the clouds are arriving from the west so there is promise of getting at least something. Will be an interesting arvo

We have inland lift off, Cobar has already scored 13mm from a storm. The storm line spans the whole state plus E VIC, should be some decent falls for a lot of areas.

The sea breeze much stronger today.

Yes, a bit of a sea 'gale' here at Shellharbour.

There is a long line of storms between Dubbo and Bateman's Bay moving east; we'll see if it breaks down before moving off the mountains, or continues over to the coast.

Had a bit of a storm here in Eden, mostly heavy rain but the majority of the lightning activity remained on the hills. Merimbula managed around 5mm though we had heavier falls here. Appears to have cleared from down here for the time being.

Too right!!
But I wouldn't mind seeing some afternoon storms that drop some serious rain too.
Lawns have turned to sand now.

Anyway another sea gale here today, one that got going rather early as well.

On a side note, the black cocky's have been out in big numbers over the past three days, rain? At least they have scared the bats away!!

Some pleasant rain now with embedded cells occasionally making it stormy, good flangs earlier. Airport showing about 13 mm but I suspect slightly more here, must rig up my rain gauge somewhere, hard though - too many trees not enough open space.

Got 28.6 mm in the gauge bringing me to 42.6 mm for the first week of Feb after 79 mm for January - great start. So green around here and now this water soaks in.
