Addams Family cloud over Sydney:



Just very low stratus and fog. It should burn off soon.

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.

Not weather related but a massive tanker crash and fire here - traffic is a nightmare. Banked 20-30kms in both directions atm.

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.
The cricket is very unpleasant as well.

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!
