No idea what you are saying above in previous post, but then yes in your next post it does look interesting early next week. A thread is already up for it too.

Umm .. As Eevo noted I have blocked facebook superficially at my local hosts file. The wiki does explain how it all works. I just don't want facebook stuff getting to me, or more to the point me talking to them. A somewhat effective track block.

Me != FB

thanks samboz, and actually i do or moreso have told many
a story around a campfire, i love to captivate people.
love to make them laugh, love to say stuff that gets people
thinking rather than do the thinking for them.
btw that is not my quote, many are but many are not.
it's just the way language works.
some of the weather spiel i blurt out should be and could
be said in a couple of lines but i just can't help myself.
once i get going the only thing that stops me is running
out of time.
as well as bush yarns stuff i like to talk about is science
and technology, quantum physics and cosmology and of course
weather in a way that ordinary people who know nothing about
stuff can understand and find interesting.
i also like to hold people to account for some of the tripe
and bs they blurt out on the pretense of it being factual or
serious
i like that betsuin, i wondered wtf you were on about too
but now you explained it i don't blame ya.
as far as the authors of facebook goes i've yet to work
out how to go about shoving a chunk of cyberspace up someones
sphincter but give it time i'll get there.
models are in somewhat 'divergent agreeance', there's a new
one, agreeance in as such they're saying something wet for
the weekend, divergence in as such they can't agree when.
GFS is ramping up as early as late thursdsay,
access going for late sunday and others in between.
just have to sit back to see if this one holds up or
evaporates.
damn it, there i go again...........
i shoulda just said thanks samboz and left it at that.

Just returned home from a few days down Yorke Peninsula. Spent most of thurs at Berry Bay and when we climbed to the top of the cliff face to leave I was surprised to see some pretty decent cell build up to my east. That now famous mushroom cloud was a sight to behold with that massive anvil. I thought at the time that it must be close enough to the city to be putting on a show for the Adelaidians. Pity the beach wasn't facing that way as I would have loved watching the build up. I regret not having my camera with me as that would have made a top photo despite the large distance involved. frown

YOU WENT AWAY AND DIDN'T TAKE YOUR CAMERA WITH YOU!?!?!?
please tell me you forgot it and didn't do it deliberatly.
yer when i walked out of work and saw that cloud it made my
sphincter pucker so tight i couldn't crap for 3 days.
having said that it's also interesting to note it had no balls
and disappeared quicker than a fart in a gustfront.

"YOU WENT AWAY AND DIDN'T TAKE YOUR CAMERA WITH YOU!?!?!?"
Its ok TH, I just hate taking my camera to beaches. Especially surf beaches. Sun, sand and saltspray dramatically shorten the lifespan of any camera. By the time we travelled the 30min journey to where we were staying the cloud had all but faded away.
Unfortunately I've just discovered that I've left my tripod down there and I need it like right now. Theres a line of cells sparking since before dawn stretching from here to the Riverland. Awful timing frown

models still got some rain coming on the weekend and although
the divergence is closing on timing it's still enough to be
up in the air. amounts are variable too which is pretty normal.
EC, GFS are conservative and ACCESS, CMC more full on.
for adelaide still looking at quite warm temps for the next
couple of weeks although the days of blistering heat are over
but are being broken up by cooler days/changes in between which
should become more frequent and more extended as we slide deeper
toward winter. be interesting to see if this weekend is
significant enough break to herald our trip into an indian
summer. at this stage i seem to think it won't be as this is a
northern infeed system, the lack of any significant polar pulse
both now and anytime in the next two weeks as models show at
the moment and that the seasonal offset seems to be running
6-8 weeks late at this stage.

Last weekend was warm enough for everyone who attended clipsal i could have sworn it got to about 35-36 in Adelaide on Saturday although that could have been higher at the clipsal 500 circuit but it may be because i was wearing a full fire suit including boots and wool socks to protect me in case one of the gt or dunlop series cars sprung a leak and burst into flames in their pit areas thankfully that didn't happen

Weather wise Saturday has Mount Gambier forecast to receive 5-10mms of rain with a 90% chance of it happening and a balmy temp of 24 followed by another 1-5mm Sunday and 1mm on Adelaide Cup Monday before going back up to 28 on Tuesday

As you said Thunda there is a distinct absence of polar pulse of which dogged us for nearly all summer with consistent southerlies being this is a northern infeed system of which is something we rarely see as for a slide deeper into winter its quite likely old man winter will come and go without a whimper if the abbreviation EN has anything to do with it

Although we haven't heard anymore updates about the ESNO since late last month and the climate indicator is still at El Nino watch so anything is possible just gotta wait another month or so to see

quote from RS.
"As you said Thunda there is a distinct absence of polar pulse
of which dogged us for nearly all summer........."

hi RS,
not quite the polar pulse i was talking about mate, your right
about the dogged southerlies/south easterlies but they are
relatively shallow and mild compared to what i'm talking about
which are the big sub 540 thickness cold pools that come up from
the deep south and form the cold fronts as they wrap around the
roaring 40s lows in winter and spring.

SOI has been running a smidgen in the -ve for a little while
now but can be basically regarded as currently neutral although
the NINO3.4 index seems to give a better indication of long
term trends.

The upcoming system is looking very interesting with WZ going with a complex low pressure system and a upper level trough to deepen. So should fire up some good storms especially riverland districts for this weekend.

well the awesome RETROGRADE TROUGH turned out to be a massive
FFFFFFFFFFFIIIIIIIIIIIZZZZZZZZEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRR
FAIL WHALE!!!!!!!!!!! herp de derp.
sorry....couldn't help that.
c'mon teck, your pretty quick to toot your horn when you get
it right............ the silence is deafening, don't sweat it,
everything is open to interpretation.
lets see what this cyclogenesis can deliver, gunna be a quick
twitch through the trough though, hows that for a tongue
twister?
ok...so....storms, hey RS, watch yer back, you might be lucky
enough to git a bolt of the lightning variety up yer butt.
this low's going to twitch up for a day and then disperse
according to models. thats ok, progged to reach max as it
passes by and we get the back edge.
i'll have a closer look tomorrow to work out if i'm gunna be
up for a chase or not.
with this system coming through at the right time it could
be a loooong weekend.
sew hoo's da fred starda?

Haven't had the time to figure out how to work with raw images from my skycam so it's low quality timelapse for now -

Figured some of my WZ mates may be interested in the camera -
Picked up for $30 delivered, bargain.
It's a compact IP-cam.

It's called - Xiaomi Smart WiFi 1080P Nightvision IP Camera
Can get the live picture up on my phone or ipad at any time
MicroSD slot for recording timelapses or video.
Best feature is the magnetic base..can stick it to corrugated iron or drainpipe - plus I've dropped it many times, and left it in the rain so it's tough.

I wouldn't suggest using it for anything sensitive as by default it's hooked into Chinese servers at all times.
There's some awesome work being done on hacking the camera though, they've managed to do a custom firmware up and implement lots of new features so far.

[img]https://cdn.ozb.me/n/18/283018.jpg?h=b9bc9bb4[/img]

Unfortunately not much detail, cloud blown out. Need to spend a bit more time setting up next time.

At $30? Can afford to have several. Camera tech is only going to get cheaper and more miniaturised.

that's good chris, thanks for the info.
i bought a 20buck ip camera off ebay about 50mm x 25mm x 20mm
with infrared and storage card slot ect. a while ago.
well actually it wasn't ip it was wifi so no external server
except to your own if you wanted, as far as i knew anyway.
i say that because it didn't work. i installed the software
fired up the camera and simply couldn't connect the wifi.
the seller wanted me to send it back for a replacement but i
simply couldnt be bothered so after much bs around i gave up
and ditched it, i've bought a lot of awesome stuff off ebay
so no biggie, them's the breaks.
it was just another gadget to play with so i havn't bothered to
get another one yet.
i'll look into your info when i've got the time.
i do want a 1080pHD type though not the bs 720pHD which in
reality is SD not HD.

a quick glance at this stage things are looking best for upper
s.e./mallee on sunday, not quite sure what to make of sat. yet.
