Book me in Dave, for dry weather! I agree Eddy, a last blast of heat would be nice but it's late March so I don't think we will get any proper heat now.

And yeah Knot those showers were sneaky. I got three of them coming home from Uni- just random showers that stopped after 30 secs.

Only the half a ml in the 24hrs to 9am.

Was a nice morning on the beach until a bit of cloud developed in the afternoon, but it did remain fine.

Wouldn't be surprised if there is a spark or two offshore this evening, some nice chunky looking clouds out there!!

I've had two storms roll through here tonight, one just after sunset, and the second about half an hour ago. Grand total of about 20mm from them smile

Certainly very warm and humid today, no rain so far, and only 0.6mm in previous 24 hours.
Rainfall has been continuous this month, if not spectacular, about 147mm at Maitland Airport and about 190mm at Belmore Bridge in central Maitland - which would be a slightly closer station to here. (as the crow flies)
I dare say we will probably get over 200mm down there at Belmore Bridge for the month, if a few more showers arrive later in the week as expected on the forecast.

Today is only the 5th day in the last 30 that we've had a cloudless and rainless day on the northern beaches (given nothing develops later)

At Sydney Airport, today is the third sunny day this month, defining "sunny" as being over 75% of posible sunshine, about 9 hours at this time of year. We've also had:

11 cloudy days (under 25% / 3 hours). Funny, it seems like more.
The remaining 12 days were partly cloudy (3-9 hours).

Overall average sunshine for March to date will be about 4.2 hours after today, about 35%, well under the March average of 6.9.
--------

Warm, mostly clear blue sky, a light sea breeze and about 26 here.

EDUT1: LRH: you got in first.

EDIT2: interesting to note that all Sydney's sunny days in March so far have been in the weekend.

It's probably been cloudier at your place. So while Sydney Ap has been partly cloudy (perhaps only just, like 4hr of sun) you may have had less than 3hrs.

I reckon we've been even cloudier down here, where do I find stats for this stuff, Steve?

Finally a really pleasant day!!

WR - I'd say it has been cloudier in the Illawarra and North Shore. It's ofteb cloudy here when the sun is shining in the Eastern suburbs.

The data on sunshine is available online (monthly observations and long term averages) for a only few places, including Sydney Airport. Solar exposure is more widely available.

It certainly was nice to wake up to a rain free day, although at times during the mid morning some clouds certainly did threaten to bring rain but by midday all clouds burned of to a stunning afternoon.

A few days like today would be nice!!

Then we finally get temps dropping off over the weekend smile
