Hear we are 2 hours from a reasonable event and nobody has started up a topic. KAzaaaammmm IT'S DONE!
I expect these showers to contain some possible heavy falls, and a possible bang and a rumble overnight. 2 - 10 mm over the Adelaide plains and of course the hills upwards towards the 15 -25 mm for the whole event and pockets of up to 40 mm. Isolated hail shower (but not much)even a sprinkle of snow, so they say in the upper heights. Does this mean that our SNOW man with the camera, has to go up there AGAIN! and take some more video for the news! You know who you are smile

Its two quilts and one blanket plus ugg boot weather here! 13mm rain up to 8am. atm moderate rain from the SSW and almost light fog conditions. Water lying around and very soggy underfoot. Sorry Roves, wish it would be like this up there for you.
Heard on the Goolwa radio station this a.m that a listener from Goolwa Beach reported (quote) a shower of sleet. Temp at Hindmarsh Island AWS at 0734hrs 8C.

Mount Lofty temp is surprisingly low already at 2.8 at 945am with a SSE wind. I reckon that puts it in with a reasonable chance of snow flurries when the cumulonimbus shower clouds come.
I'll be watching the temps and radar and decide whether and where to go later today - be somewhere in the Lofties if I go.
I'll either be wearing a rather cute pink bikini with matching beach sandles and sunshade Miss L has loaned me, or navy jeans and every jumper and jacket I can lay my hands on - depends on my mood at the time. I'll be carrying a black camera bag and a smaller fairly bright mulberry-coloured (purple) bag, and probably a sky blue bag. And an outer navy blue beanie with a paler blue rim.
Could be interesting tonight if the very cold air comes down a bit lower.

Hope you get a few showers in the southerly today Roves.
Interesting to see the three main models we watch have all diverged towards the end of the coming 7 days.

From Aviation Forecast!!
LOCAL SNOW FALLS ABOUT RANGES N OF YPAD AFTER 08Z.
So I'm guessing anywhere north of about Mt Lofty after about sunset, which is a pity.... Just hope there is a good cover somewhere at first light still, to get some decent pics...


Geeze I reckon the uppers is starting to get pretty cold now... just had a shower that was practically all hail.... eek

Yer just had had a SHRAGS here as well, vis reduction down to 2000SW (god my job is really showing in me now) Was tiny as tho, but quite wet, not much hail but pretty firm and VERY WINDY shower. Getting colder now, especially me coming from Darwin without a jumper at all....forgot to pack in a moment of madness (long story).

Chance of that snow tonight, prob see subtle dustings given the right temps...subtle, not a lot.

TS cool

All sound and fury signifying not much at this stage, however the 1km MTSAT pic does show the cold air field penetrating an impressive distance north.
