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

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

506m above sea level. Definitely invalid.

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.

Looks like that southerly will make a return soon according to the radar, might even get a little shower out of it with a bit of luck.

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.

Thanks. Trying out the northern Bannisters, so I guess thatís Soldiers Point or Salamander Bay. Importantly, the vantage point should be good for storms if we get any - my only excuse for poor photos will be my own lack of talent!!

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.

Anyone else looked into Dubbo's obs. Look at that temp spike in the middle of the storm.

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.
