Unless I have only just noticed it and it's been there for ages, Pallamana AWS is now included on the "Latest Weather Observations for the Adelaide Area" page. It also shows the highest and lowest temperatures for the day like other key stations.

And Ben, it also doesn't change the times I can chase straws...I mean storms, either! poke

Great to have a newsletter from the Severe weather section of the BOM (Named eye of the storm). Has been four years since we have had a newsletter from them. The supplied booklet (The Australian Storm Spotters' Handbook )has some fabulous photos in it and of course very user friendly. Thanks guys!!

Tomorrow is the last official day of the South Australian snow season - notwithstanding Seaworthy's comment that snow is theoretically possible at any time of the year poke .
Not a single flake of snow has been reported in South Australia this season as far as I know, and frankly I don't like our chances for today or tomorrow. That's the third year in a row without any snow reported, except for one observation of some small white objects falling on Mount Lofty and resting on Chris's black garment last year or was it the one before I forget. The last fall of what was undoubtedly snow reported was in 2008.
I know the memory can compress things so it seems events such as snow and storms (or even rain in Hillsrain's case) were more common in the past, but three years without any snow? Bit of a worry really.

Looks like summer is going to show its bright and sparkling head by the end of the week with temps in the mid 20's just hoping it stays that way for a week or so smile

So, the last day of October arrives. For those of us still learning about the typical kinds of weather and systems we get in southern sa in spring, this week we have a pattern common (and often persisting for days at a stretch) in spring - a slow-moving high south-west of us bringing cold to cool air from the southern ocean up over southern sa, with the winds strengthened in the afternoons by a sea breeze. Good slow-maturing weather for crops and pastures, cool enough for Hillsrain, windy enough for Liz, too cold for heat lovers such as myself.

lol Carl... in all honesty, do you really think there's even a chance of snow in SA still this year?
There's no way with how the synoptic patterns are now firmly in a Spring pattern, that we could have a cold enough blast.
This is worse straw clutching than what I do..... wink grin

Thanks for that little summary Unstable smile I'm still on my L's when it comes to knowing about typical weather patterns.

Here's some info from the 28-day Rainfall forecast for those that don't have WZ silver -

Quote:
Issue Notes
The hemispheric long wave pattern has been relatively slow moving in recent weeks. There are six main troughs. Currently the most significant troughs are near the longitudes of South Africa, Western Australia, the south Pacific, the southeast Pacific, and South America.
Summary:
Over southern and eastern Australia the cold front events with potential to bring widespread rain are now expected about 11 November to 15 November, 20 November to 24 November, and 2 December to 6 December. Rain events originating in the tropics and moving south are possible about 4 November to 8 November, 10 November to 14 November, and 28 November to 2 December.
Over Western Australia the strongest cold fronts should occur about 10 November to 14 November.

Issued Oct 31



lol discovered these great little cartoons. They focus on Victoria but much of it still applies to SA weather.



Made a playlist of the rest of them - Here

right on unstable if september had been average would have been almost perfect year.
cool finish in oct nov is perfect for farmers of all description.
our crops of wheat range from outstanding to average but the average ones will do better than that thanks to late rain and lovely cool weather,and as we all know it will be warm enough once dec comes around

edit we actually scored 12 mm on one farm we lease on friday 10 on another and 8 was all good

Thanks for the entertainment chris3. did enjoy the humourous portrail of weather by a dog!

Yep heads up for Sunday, looks tropical and shall i say, stormy wet even. But as per usual it's still early days and things can change, blah blah blah,, you get where i'm comming from.

Did just come back from a trip down the bottom of yorkes this last weekend. Everything is well,,,,,, looking average in the paddocks. The southerly wind was chilling to say the least with a coat not enough for me to brave the jetty fishing at night. They did score some of the fridays rain but not as much, it seemed to be more puddly up around kadina. wallaroo, port hughes , moonta area.

Anyhow, looking forward to sunday / monday

Hey Chris I quite like those climatedogs videos I've seen as a simple introduction to the topics. Now if they can produce more sets of videos with progressively more complex explanations we can build our knowledge from them. Thanks for posting !
(And a quiet little plea to videomakers to bear in mind we're watching a screen less than two feet from our eyes and the less jerks, jumps and quick pans etc the better for our eyes).
"and a nice looking stormy trough for Sunday..." - interesting TE - I just checked the BOM forecast for Adelaide for Sunday - includes "Cloud increasing in the afternoon. Isolated showers and the chance of thunderstorms in the evening." I think BOM have been reluctant in recent times to forecast a chance of storms so far ahead so it's interesting they've done it on this occasion.
"The year isnít over yet smile !" - this is true Naz wink I wonder if there's ever been snow in SA since written records began in November - if not maybe this will be the year!
I hope November is as good as October was for you Farm Weather smile Fingers crossed I guess.
