The nattering grounds for world-wide general weather.

Weather porn with The Levanter cloud formed over The Rock:

In other news, Twitter is in meltdown over Trump's amendment to a official NOAA Hurricane forecast:

This has been followed by NOAA coming out and undermining it's very-own Alabama Branch:

Media is in hysterics over sensationalised (& misleading) WX headlines:
That "news" article from the express beggars belief... It's atrocious "journalism"

Updated my charts for 2019 peak season depth, interesting to note the last 3 seasons at Spencers as measured by Snowy Hydro are well above the 200cm mark and have helped to plateau the downward trend.

Three mile dam when looking at the whole season was subject to many peaks and troughs which generally shows the perilous nature of lower elevated alpine regions.

I have also analysed peak season dates per year for each elevation. A key observation here is the variability of when "peak depth" occurs for each elevation. Spencers is more August - October whereas Deep Creek & Three Mile Dam favour July - August, more so Three Mile Damn.

Again, highlighting the perilous nature of low elevation resorts.

Dinking around the Casey Station back-country yesterday, Mitchell Peninsula fwiw, found this piece of space junk.
We did return to sender , and they are checking the serial number to see which launch it was .
These are released twice daily ( most here would know this ) , approx 40 locations around Oz / 800 'ish world wide.
Don't do the maths it will upset you. ;)
No they are not bio-degradable , yes they are working on it.
