Did I see that Bathurst had ~30mm up until about 8pm last night? From Storms? Canberra copped it. Sydney had a fair drop as well.

Hallelujah - yes.

It varied a lot, just spoke to a fellow on the western side of town only had 13mm.

Reckon we had about 30 at home. Been a VERY long time coming.

I had been watering 40 year old trees etc for weeks trying to keep them alive - every plant was drooping badly in Feb.

Good to finally get rain.

Canberra really copped a flogging but they really needed the rain too.

Hi all

At 1200, NW radar showing a pretty good front moving in on the West Coast. Will be interesting to see how much rain there is in it. Maybe even a thunderstorm. smile

I would enjoy that rain - reckon those down the SE of Tassie would like it too. smile

Large parts of the SE had 10-20mm that day as well.

The grass was dead on the 29th of Jan when the heat ended and the rain came down. Fast forward 32 days and its pretty much lush green and needs cutting. Over 70mm for the month of Feb.

DM, hopefully the rains keep coming and sets the Bathurst region up with some good feed for winter.

Cheers Dan smile

A lot of areas in a lot of states looking for good Autumnal rain smile

Looks like more sections of Qld will get very wet in the coming week.

Hopefully things improving a little more now in more areas.

Get some rain and growth going before frosts. Our first frost likely in late April.

21 c plus here today after a 18 c forecast by the BOM , lol .
Well you can see it's the Taste of the Huon festival this weekend with a very warm 26 c for Fri and Sat , which will probably be closer to 30 c by weekend . For some reason this weekend coincides with a mini heatwave every year leaving patrons hot and sun burnt to a crisp. I can't see tomorrow being 18 c either , but I guess I'm not being paid a huge wage to get it wrong.
By Saturday a massive High the size of the entire country moves into the bight , besides setting of another migraine for me it will signal another 2 weeks at least of heat and no rain. Oh well only another 3 months before we get 3 weeks of cooler weather perhaps ?

Actually spot on re Taste of Huon - always seemed to be hotter than usual when that was on in our time down there.

But is it really.... mean max temps for March long weekends in Hobart since 1990 are below. The 4 warmest weekends have occured since 2008. 17 days over 25, just 2 over 30 (2006 and 2008). Until 2004 the March long weekend looked quite cool really. The coldest days were March 12th 1994 at just 12.7 degrees and 13.8 on March 9th 2003. You'd say with the exception of 2009 the last decade or so have been average or above the long term March average - but the cooler March days are generally later in the month.

1990 17.1
1991 17.7
1992 22.8
1993 18.4
1994 15.3
1995 20.3
1996 20.5
1997 19.5
1998 17.4
1999 21.0
2000 19.5
2001 19.7
2002 23.2
2003 15.2
2004 16.8
2005 24.0
2006 24.2
2007 20.3
2008 26.7
2009 17.2
2010 25.7
2011 25.3
2012 20.1
2013 20.4
2014 26.1
2015 23.1
2016 22.1
2017 21.3

I just recall being hot a lot of the time at the taste of the HUON.

Maybe it was having so much time out in the sun. Then again these days the sun SEEMS to have a lot of sting even if the temp does not indicate the heat.

Quite a tasty looking cold change looking possible around the middle of the month.

At the moment EC, Access & GFS reasonably in alignment.

May potentially bring an early season frost with it and if not that change, then possibly the one behind it.

Agreed Dave, I've been watching this potential cold snap on the models for a few days now.
Another week or two of this lovely mild weather we are getting would be great. March usually good for some warm weather.

Talking of frost, I've had a bit of a strange phenomenon twice now in the last month.
On the 13th Feb and 6th of March had minimums of 4 and 4.5 respectively.
Interesting thing was, that on a small garden bed my partner has recently mulched with half composted lawn clippings, there was frost!
Just heavy dew everywhere else.
Snowies, anyone, can you shed any light on the reason for this?

Yes agree about the following change as well.

Interesting P, a little patch of something either more insulated from the ground or more conductive material I guess.

I'm assuming ground temps still reasonably warm at this time of year. Maybe the clippings insulated the section enough from the warmer ground allowing more heat loss in the top layer.

A very hot and dry day once again pushing to 28.2 c in the City and here in the Hobart suburbs plus another 4 or 5 degrees.
And here we go round the merry go round of non stop dry hot weather returns next weekend as well. One gets the feeling this heat and weather pattern week upon week will push deep into May or June .
Also next Saturday is looking a very dangerous fire day as well with winds going to grow to 30kmr. sick
