will catch up on the last posts later but a nasty fire down my way. Less than 10k's as the crow flies but the strong SE winds will keep us safe. Should it reach Mt Bold it will take off. Following the source back it looks to have started around some farm sheds. Wonder what story this time.

Lil bit close for comfort this one.

Hi Folks My daughter is moving to Adelaide Uni in February. What sort of weather can she expect in Feb/March? When does it start to cool off. I know...spoken like a true tropics dweller!

February is generally the hottest of summer then it cools down in March-April but with the weather not making up its mind as of late it would be wise for her to monitor conditions using this website

Lovely colour in that pic Helen. A reward for being up early.

Glad you made it through your ordeal Chris. I didn't realise it was as serious as that!

Katabatic I think we can safely say Feb/March will be plain hot. Last March dealt us a record heat wave and we seem to be breaking all the records of late.

Oops nerd - I'll read that again blush

Congratulations Katabatic on your daughter being accepted at Adelaide Uni smile
Yes February is pretty hot usually, often cloudless days with light to moderate south-easterlies. But March is more variable - a mix of warm to hot days with maxes in the thirties and maybe one or two forties, and some cooler days with maxes in the twenties. Full scale summer usually ends in early March but last year we had a spectacular heat wave as mentioned above in early to mid march. April probably has Adelaide's best living weather for the year on average, and winter often starts in mid to late May.

That sounds awful Chris! I hope you are recovering quickly from that - at least you won't go through it again!

I don't want to sound facetious, but it was March 2008. I can see why it's thought of as last year - we are still in 2009 mode. wink Always takes a month or two to adjust to the new year for me, too.

March last year was pretty much dead on normal.

Well done Max. I was wondering who would spot the deliberate mistake!

wink

Hoping for some action of any discription on thursday. This monotonous boring weather is torture for any true weather buff!

why on earth would anyone think your being facetious saying
that? pedantic maybe bit defiantly not facetious. poke

As soon as this pesky cool to mild with rain weather streak goes away we can get into our traditional pattern of heatwaves and rip snorter summer storms TH as everyone would be pretty much sick of this dull and unexciting weather by now

there's plenty out there that would be relishing
this type of weather RS, good for getting things
done, but it certainly shuts this place down to
idle.
i myself don't mind this as long as it gets above
25 for most of the day but i do miss the good 'ol
marrow boilers.
the thing that is knuckling my ribs is that damned
indian ocean ridge constantly intruding and sweeping
north any good potential moisture infeed coming down
on us, like the carrot in front of the donkey,
teasingly close but never to get there.
storms get so close but never to within feasible
chasing distance and when i do go to chase usually
all i can do is run to the end of my leash and bark.

True some people would be relishing this boring as bat poop weather TH to get things done outside but for storm chasers or volunteer firies its generally a sign that the weeks following this quiet patch will be flat out with non stop action crazy

Something to keep an eye on in a week's time is the location of the remnants of ex-TC Olga....
GFS has it linking with a trough through inland NSW/QLD giving the Darling another very good drink.
EC has it moving SW into SA...

Just as long as we get some rip snorter storms and not a fizzer that turns into a non event smile

Glad you're back and firing Chris! Burst appendix is something I hope I never have to experience! Great shots too btw and cracker sunrise there Helen, or was it sunset?!

Don't discount the coming 24-48hrs, jet aloft is very strong with impressive upper divergence, weak mid level trough with a tongue of moisture trickling in, these steups often yield some surprise mid-level thundery showers.

TS cool

Thanks everyone. smile Was a sunrise, Lennie. Most of those colours are usually reserved for sunsets here, but Mother Nature happened to sneak that one in the morning.

Yer, something's definitely brewing, as the shoulder's been giving me grief for the last couple of days. Would be nice to see a spark or two and listen to the dulcet tones of a rumbling sky. smile

Anyone around??
Some decent cells approaching the metro coastline putting out the occasional spark too according to the tracker...

New Adelaide forecast:
Partly cloudy with a chance of a thundery shower in the late morning or afternoon, mainly in the northern suburbs.

Showalter is also very encouraging for the next day or so.
