Happy Birthday WeatherManiac! cheers

Definitely looking like our first summer heatwave coming up now... The next cool change appears to be around 10 days away on the extended forecast with a decent blocking high around.

could be looking at 5 straight days of 40+ for here,
if we get that it'll make november look like a cold
outbreak, that's pretty snarly stuff even for me.
even 5 or so straight days of 38+ will beat nov.
see how it pans out, whatever happens it looks like
it will be a tad warm but basically the same boring
repetitious rot.

I thought I had posted these, but it looks like It completely slipped my mind. Two shots from New Years Eve, one of the fireworks taken from North Glenelg, and another I took for Hayley not long before that by mucking around with glowsticks and the exposure set to take the fireworks. So, sorry it's a few days late, but HAPPY NEW YEARS everybody! I hope this year brings with it copious storms, with plenty of photo opportunities, and the free time to enjoy it all!

Great capture on that dust-devil there Chris, I guess it was a case of being in the right place at the right time, and it paid off well for you. cool

I know this is late posting these images but the first one here is the anvil updraft of the small storm that developed on the northern ranges on the 31st. I also noticed how windy the downdraft winds were preceding the storm core, and my station recorded a gust of 59km about 3 minutes before the core went overhead. It seems the storms were gathering alot more energy as they moved east later in the say. the 141km gust at lameroo is a great example of that.
eek



This second photo of the storm core I took was only a minute before we had that "gust" of wind that these storms had, wasn't much if you look but boy was it heavy for a while, and a long time since we had a storm develop ahead of a trough line near our town.





Again great shots to all those people that chased these beasts down later in the day. Nothing beats SA storms grin

Yes happy birthday to you Weathermaniac (be thankful I'm not singing it blush )
Spectacular storm cloud photo Hillsrain smile Great to see distant storms without useless clutter in between cam and storm.
Lovely Glenelg fireworks pic Chris cool - you've captured the exploding rockets very brightly given the distance and the full moon. Cute heart too - your co-star has performed admirably smile

Hey, I didn't realize until just now that you spotted a landspout back in 2005 Ben! What was that one like? What sort of funnel did it produce?

Glad you asked, Chris. poke

Ahh, that day brings back memories. Twas the day of the phantom 10cm hail!. Was seriously hot and seriously humid at Port Wakefield though - we had arrived there after a storm had passed through and it was unbearable. In truth it was a lot more uncomfortable than any of the humidity I've encountered in QLD or NSW.

Anyway, after grabbing some fuel I noticed a landspout in the distance emanating from the developing Cu on the ranges. Being almost 5 years ago I don't remember the details, but it was very long and ropey and did not take the most direct path to the ground (had a bit of a horizontal component). It would also dissipate and reform from time to time and was hard to spot with the eye when it did so. As far as I know they are pretty common events, but I'm 99% sure the landspout I observed did not have a condensation funnel. You can never be certain however because it was a good 1-2km away and there was a lot of haze in the air obscuring the finer details. I have since taken pics of a better landspout on the Hay plain in February 2008. I'll see if I can dig those up for you at some point. As far as Jan 05 went, I had a crappy Canon G6 point and shoot back then so did not have the best gear to capture it with unfortunately. Tim touched them up for me at the time though and I was forever grateful that he did so and put them up on his website.

It's also interesting to note by the way how similar the synoptic chart for 26/01/05 was to 01/01/10.

Thanks for that Ben. I find your comments about is dissipating then reforming very interesting! Absolutely incredible though.

at this stage the main heat will start thurs and
continue through to and including monday with a
change coming through tuesday morning.
down there you can expect high 30s to possible 40s
here i can expect mid 30s thurs. and possibble 40+
for the rest, further north high 30s thurs and
40+ for the rest. coastal areas can expect mid to
high 30s.

I can see the chances of Mount Gambier and such reaching the 40's early next week before that change comes through but it's likely to be only a weak temporary reprieve from the heat before the temps shoot up again late next week

Wouldnt be surprised if every area in SA sees some rip snorter storms between Thursday this week and Tuesday next week that includes both the USE and LSE wink

I well remember that landspout of yours Ben. That was back pre photoshop days even! I was using paint shop pro and shooting with a fuji 602 looking enviously at those new fangled expensive DSLR's. Much has changed and we have all seen much, though not enough really happens, not really, not compared to pretty much everywhere else wink

Well Robert, I do wonder bout your prediction. This is odd. Was out mowing the lawn today and lo and behold the frogs are on the move. In the middle of the afternoon! Can't really explain that. BUT everytime it has happened before in roughly 2 weeks or thereabout a reasonable rain event happens. Of course its pure coincidence. But what mad frog roams around in the afternoon heat in a crispy dry environment?
Also totally unreliable is that the ants are madly running in line all over the place.

I dunno, crazy old world.........

Like i said in my post earlier hillsrain i wouldnt be surprised if every area seen a rip snorter storm at some stage during this heatwave coming

Of course there was a storm last week that gave some but not every area a spanking so it seems the tide has changed plus with the high temps nocturnal cooling will play a big role late this week and weekend into early next week in terms of some good storms

Hi Robert. Havent had a chance to check models in last 2 days. Whats happening during the heatwave that could give us these storms that you talk about?
A couple of days ago it looked like it was to be a very dry heatwave with a big high stuck to our east.

check the pwats, tots, li's and 700rh tek,
nothing over the top but definatley something
there to squint ones eyes at.
dp's are up overall especially fri/sat and
taper off but that band of moisture on tuesday
will make for interesting analysis.
i'd draw the line at saying 'every area'.
thats a pretty bold statement in any ones
language, not to say it can't happen though
but i wouldn't come out with something like
that until we were just about on top of it.

btw, in the time it took you to write that last
post you could have checked the models and
seen for your self. wink

Killer dew this morning. Registered on the gauge! Must have been a fog to be this heavy. Just was not up early enough I guess.
A nice cool 10 degrees too. The mornings since we returned have been beautiful.
