    19.9mm at home from yesterday's soak bringing Oct rainfall to 23.8mm & YTD to 376.3mm.

    Went for a drive in the Mid & Upper North as far as Wirrabara for my partner's birthday yesterday.

    It was overcast as we left home and headed up through Mallala & Balaklava. Temperature was warming up and reached about 27C (car thermometer) from memory as we stood at the lookout near Redhill. The cloud was thin and to our SW some horizontal "Organ Pipe"cloud formations could be seen. As we headed off to lunch in Crystal Brook, the temperature dropped as the wind swung around to the SW and was about 19C when we left town. As we approached the turnoff towards Pt Germein Gorge, there were "low & wet looking" clouds coming from the N/NW. However, no rain. As we drove towards Wirrabara, via some nice back roads, these were low clouds persisted over the ranges.

    While we had a milkshake & cake in Wirrabara, there was a sudden fairly loud rumble of THUNDER! This was followed by a few more rumbles. No lightning, but a shower began to fall. There was a bit of light rain as we passed through Laura. Steady light rain began to fall as we drove down back roads south of Narridy towards Koolunga which was damp & humid as darkness approached. As we neared Brinkworth & Blyth, we were passing through driving rain & reasonable winds making driving challenging with a lot of pooled water in any depressions in the road surface which were difficult to see except with high beam. This didn't stop until we reached Two Wells, where the rain eased up a little but was still falling at a reasonable rate which lasted all the way home.

    So a bit of everything for our drive up north. Still lots of greenery around and the wattles & other plants in flower through Pt Germein Gorge were spectacular!

    18mm in the Exeter gauge this morning. Less than I was expecting out of the radar splodge posted yesterday.

    Another 18mm in the Exeter gauge this morning.

    Should make the garden unusually steamy with 30degrees forecast after this cool wet spell passes.

    Well October's rainfall totals surged with 2.9, 0.9 & 16.1mm since the weekend bringing Oct total to 43.7mm & YTD 396.2mm.

    Yesterday's total of 16.1mm was quite a surprise as BOM only forecast 4-10mm for the Adelaide region yesterday morning from memory.

    I think even my property at Ponde should have scored a reasonable total for a change looking at Cambrai, Caurnamont, Mypolonga & Pallamanna's figures for yesterday's event.

    I suppose I had better update my rainfall figures otherwise it looks like Skifree is talking to himself! :)

    Another 6.2mm of dribbly rain & short sharp showers over 6 days has brought my Oct total to 49.9mm & YTD to 402.4mm which is 8mm shy of 2017 YTD. Miles behind 2016 though at this stage of the year.

    A slim chance although not enough forecast to make up that 8mm deficit in the next 2 days imo.

    Dunno, I don't records for that. This year is the first year I have good records for Winter as I have been home. Previous House sitters were making the records or no one was.

    When was the last La Nina?

    2010-2012, with the first year 2010-2011 being the strongest on record.

    Thunderstorms somewhere last night. Much thunder.

    Ok guys, ive moved here
    I had settled into aus weather forum because this ski
    Forum didn't really seem appropriate.
    But the other one has been taken over by a foul
    Disgusting troll and the admin wont do anything about it
    Im going to try here and hopefully the same wont happen.


    thunderstorm parameters for Tuesday are

    looking not too bad, LSE has got me worried though, in 30 yrs of
    stormchasing i cant remember LIs and cape forecasts holding that
    high for so long. EC is even on the band wagon.
    if it holds i think im going to regret not going down there to chase.
    still... things look ok for here, good paramaters over the eastern
    EP and iron triangle setup for steering winds to rip whatever
    goes up down to adelaide but as it gets here will prolly be in
    carkit mode but.. the forecast situation as always is dynamic and
    evolving, see how looks on the eve.
    30mm PWATS and decent early afternoon caps make for some
    good explosive development.
    DPs are up there so this our first good 'hot tropical' setup for the
    season... hopefully the first of many.
    any input appreciated.......

    well a great stormline started on EP but died as it hit YP heading for adelaide
    surprise surprise
    never mind, situation is still dynamic and another storm setup has gone up over lower EP
    if this one holds this is going to be a great sunset / evening event.
    cmon mr gringe, give us something please.

    A bit noisy & flashy but that's all. Not enough to cancel my 100T crane today, just might defer poking the stick up until the lightening clears proper like.

    7mm in the Exeter gauge over night. Mostly in few 10 second falls, so very very intense rain when & where it fell.

    A lot of lightening over the Hills from North to South. Very likely some fire action today alas. Hopefully the crews are not blocked from dealing with by fallen trees and so on.

    Glad you've made the move.
    Despite being a ski forum, this place has a serious weather section.
    Most of the Qld'ers from WZ moved over to here, which is even more bizarre, and their section is thriving.
    NSW is a bit quiet but constantly buzzes with quite a few old WZer's.
    Melbourne and Vic goes really well with plenty of original ski.com posters adding to the weather comments.

    Tassie and WA are quiet but bumble along. NT has 2 or 3 regular contributors with great updates. Pics and maps are sensational.
    The best thing about moving to ski.com is that there was already a number of weather enthusiasts here. They have added to the scope of knowledge on all of the state and international forums and they provide really decent technical information.
    This place also is also far easier for people to post maps, forecast charts, pics etc.... than WZ ever was.
    It also must be noted that ski.com went out of their way to accommodate all us refugees, and set up the new weather section in a similar fashion to what we were used to back at WZ.

    I'm glad you have made the jump and you'll find that the mods are tough but fair, and are very prepared to give warnings for out of line posts.
    Now that you have made the move, I'll be sure to check the South Aussie forum more often.
    All you need to do now is coerce plenty of your SA brethren to make the move to here as well, to keep the SA forum lively.

    thanks for your welcome homer.
    i PM'd a few of the others on the other side so hopefully fingers
    crossed we'll see them here too.
    that was sure one of the best light shows for a looooooong time.
    i like it when the bolts are that close you can close your
    eyes and enjoy the afterimage thats been burnt onto your
    retina for up to a minute after the strike.
    aside from the amazing light show i ended up with 12.2mm
    in the gauge.
    i just sat outside and enjoyed an armchair chase with a few of the
    neighbours.
    like fireworks a lightning show is a social event that's best enjoyed
    with company rather than on your own.

    ouch skifree, that's gotta hurt, especially with what went
    on around you, usually i'm the one that cops crap like that.
    don't worry, every dog has his day, especially when it
    comes to the vagaries of weather.
    great to see you here willitrainagain (aka Wra.) hope you
    get lots of your favorite weather to post about.

    WOW...only small storms, but so intense. I was out the front washing the car, when a bolt literaly hit a tree in the golf course across the road. Frightenened the crap out of me..

    Good to see a few more of the SA guys here to keep Skifree & myself company!

    My Oct total ended up being 50.9mm with YTD 403.4mm. As a comparison, Adelaide Airport (YPAD) had 39.8mm & 342.6mm respectively.

    My Nov total to date is 9.3mm (thanks to my partner for checking the gauge in my absence) and YTD 412.7mm with YPAD 4.6mm & 347.2mm respectively.

    This morning woke about 830 to a few rumbles from a cell to my east. Later on, more rumbles from another cell passing a reasonable distance to my north. This was followed by yet another cell which passed closer to my north and I think I may have been lucky enough to snag a CG on the video once the cell was to the east of the house. It was nice to see the unsettled nature of the sky and watch these small & fast cells move through.

    Hopefully a sign of things to come for the remainder of spring and summer.

    thanks for that.....
    went for a chase out to the bend for lunch to
    head off the cell that went through gawler and
    northern burbs.
    it pulsed nicely just after i arrived, with a smattering
    of giant drops from 14,000' bases several CGs were
    inside the 1km radius and one nice flang well inside
    300m. nice clear crisp snap-crackle and pop bolts
    mostly strobing indicated they had plenty of power
    and defiantly good firelighters. uhf was buzzin' with
    reports of smoke here and there.
    cloud structure was ok but not photogenic, i wasn't
    expecting anything hot, the camera stayed in the bag
    waiting for the unexpected.
    the whole shebang was fairly fast moving so there
    was no point trying to play catchup, thats usually a
    bad idea even in ideal situations.
    looked at the jamestown and clare cells coming through
    and there was nothing that was grabbing me by the
    short and curlys so i decided to mosey on home.
    it was really just an excuse to munch on australias
    best hamburger at the bend caltex, (personal opinion),
    for lunch.

    looks like the heat is on, with the odd cool change to keep
    temps somewhat moderated. nothing overly hardcore either way.
    sunday seems to be consolidating nicely into something of
    possible significance.
    models are in good agreeance for something on sunday,
    just have to sit back and see if things ramp up a bit more.
    could be up for another chase.
    2 in as many weeks? ...this is getting out of hand.

    a cool change,
    dry as a lime burners boot.
    what happened to the storms,
    no one gives a hoot.
    a waste of time arguing,
    the point is moot.
    might as well stay at home
    and have myself a... cup of coffee.

    starve the lizards,
    lock down occurred because of someone telling lies,
    boy is he in trouble, by the time the authorities finish
    reaming his butt its gunna be the size of the heysen
    tunnel.

    A bit off topic there, no just told he was a very naughty boy.

    On topic, tell me, are really might be seeing a thunder storm Sunday or is the BOM off in fairy land?

    if the authorities cant do anything then hand him over.....
    i got a HSS reamer that's capable of removing the
    toughest of dags... and lies.
    sorry about the off topic,
    i tend to talk about anything s.a. that may be of interest
    aside from weather.
    no bom are not in fairy land but...
    things are looking a bit ordinary, most likely to be in the trough
    through the mid north, riverland and s.e. east of the ranges.
    and west, s.w. vic
    steering winds pretty much from the NW, uppers convergent.
    bases around 10,000', getting pwats 25 - 35,although
    if anything gets down to the l.s.e. then bases down to 6,000'and
    35-40 pwats could see some good mid based hp,
    whether i chase or not will depend on what i see and how i feel at the time..

    thanks for that, i missed it.
    i'll put my other dribble there from now on
    should be 'meanwhile in s.a.' though not just adelaide

    lotsa lightning happening out west, seems to go
    carkomarno as it moves toward here.
    a tad warm-ish tomorrow, with cloud and chance of a
    shower, dare i say... thundery in nature.

    I don’t see a lot of storm action here. It did go from mirror to breezy as I took the picture. The odd drop of rain, that is single isolated drops. It’s trying but I think we are still missing some ingredients for more than a warm sticky day.

    yer its a veritable dogs breakfast out there
    what a mess, 5/8ths of bugger all.
    at least the marrow boiling sun is firmly tucked away.
    still today was never progged to be much but hot and dry
    see what tomorrow doesn't bring.

    Don't be surprised if tomorrow's weather is the same as today actually is/was.

    yer maybe Sf
    methinks it may be a tad damper,
    theres some rubbish cranking up over northern ep atm
    PWATs where the storms are are around 30 at the
    moment but over the next 12 hours or so they will go
    feral and thicken up to buggery.
    especially the line of gooey stuff running nw - se in
    the bight at the moment.
    PWATs should start touching 45 east of the ranges as
    it moves over us tomorrow afternoon.
    bases still around 10,000' but with PWATs like that there's
    good potential for cells to go hp from east of the ranges to the
    border... and beyond.
    here we're not out of the loop but were not in it either.
    most likley to just get wet.
