Another hellish day , played golf @ Richmond and 9 holes was all we could take . A good down poor around Rosny area on the way home . Can't seeing the rain totals adding to much and also have very grave doubts on how tomorrow is going to anywhere near 16c.
Well the phenomenal heat just continues to roll out now to Thursday next week. Looks like yet another record month with everyday being 25 c at least with a few near 30's thrown in.
By crikey if that happens and it doesn't make headlines i'll be stuffed why not ?

Some good thunder today but know lightning.
Only 1mm.
Hoping for good drizzle overnight.

The Soil dryness index has 21 places over 100 or more and up to 155mm.
This is extremely dry for this time of year and dryer than last summer at any point.

Wasn't that convinced we'd get much, the models were all over the place. Having said that, now that the models and the BOM have gone cold on the prospects of rain, I reckon we might pick up some showers/rain as it moves down from the mainland tonight - maybe not a lot in though.

Evening all,
12.8mm Till 9am with a further 8.6mm.
Total of 21.4mm for the event!
Happy with that!
I really feel for the farmers in the Dry East, midlands and South East with a week of hot weather ahead.
Fingers crossed it comes soon.

Evening all a much cooler day at work but alas Hobart 1 mm since 9:00 am . So much for the 50 - 100 mm LOL , was never going to get more that a drop in bucket.
Have a look at this for the forecast for the Northern Suburb of Moonah ( Hobart ) starting tomorrow 26 , 29 , 29 , 29 , 30 , 30 , 27 ,21 , 24 so far . I don't how much more worse it can get after what we have already been through last month and last week. A forecast that reads like something you would expect for Cairns or Perth this time of year. crazy
Like what the hell is happening ??? for goodness sake , did I not move nearly 4000 km South to escape this sort of climate . I hate Summer and this is the new look Spring makes me wonder what the hell we have ahead for the next 6 months. Medication NOW !! or connect the car hose up frown

Maybe they forgot to factor in the seabreese when they did the forecast for Hobart, sure looks out of wack for November. Had a look at the data; longest number of days in a row 25+ for November is 3 ( 10 times, most recently in 2007 ) the forecast doubles the record if its right... highest number of days over 25+ for the full month, 8 in 1945.

Move up to NSW lol, it's much cooler up here. Sydney has been under 25C for nearly 2 weeks and the cool weather is going to continue due to E/NE winds which will swing around to the north for Tassie so consistent hot weather will prevail until this pattern breaks.

Yep- I think this is just an unprecedented stagnant weather pattern so I think records could be smashed. It's like up here, we have had 7 days of NEers and there's a least 8 more to go which is very unusual as well and possibly a record number of consecutive days with NE winds if that kind of data was important.

Yes it's a bit of a strange and persistent weather pattern we have underway. smile

Surprised in some ways its only 3 and 8 - guess that is still pretty warm for this time of year. Current forecast has 6 in a row starting today, I reckon the first couple will be marginal... timing of sea breeze will be everything. My little model suggests it'll top out short of 23.

3 days is indeed the record for a spell entirely in November, although there's been a 4-day one from 30 October - 2 November (1987).

Another one I'm watching is the statewide average maximum (which isn't so vulnerable to seabreezes). At the moment, the forecast for this is for 4 consecutive days over 24; there's no previous instance in November of more than 2.

As well as your correction Blair, there have been 13 occasions all up of three days in a row over 25+ in November ( inclusive of the 4 you mention in 1987 )...missed a couple of years out when I was scribbling it down on the paper, doing it the good ol' fashioned way over a coffee..

8 for the full month is all good ( 1945 ).

Hot record ad infinitum is getting a bit tedious.

Not many cool records threatened these days it seems. Sign of the times I guess.

Up until the end of September, Tasmania had actually had a reasonably cool year by modern standards (only 0.06 degrees above the 1961-1990 average). Very different since then.

Afternoon all,
Sitting in the boat on Bronte Lagoon, reading all the interesting weather facts! I think it will break the record as Hobart has been up to 28.3 degrees all ready up on the forecast 27. Looks warm - hot again in the following 14 days.
We ended up with 12.8mm then 12.6mm so a lovely 25.4mm for the 2 days. With drizzle.
So glad I have a bore to fill my dam!

By the way 1 x 40cm Brown trout on a dun patten! Happy with that

Hi and late evening from Tropical Hobart , where it is still 21 degrees with the only capital warmer tonight being Darwin. eek
Another stinker and scorching dry 30 c today , yes looks like at least a 14 day run . Next Saturday forecast 25 c but that will surely change upwards with absolutely no cooling from now till then. There will many Hobartarians that would have never lived through this sort of constant day after day heat , bearing in mind houses down here have no cooling for the whole home and ceiling fans are rare . It's going to be a hellish season for most with only a pedestal fan and no air con.
This is a real game changer territory now , records are falling like lead balloons.
