    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:

    Yeah but Trump would have been waving an awefully big stick at NOAA.

    Yeah but highlights 'you can't rule the weather' or science for that matter - the very heart of the issue.

    The biggest copout prediction term ever used.

    "Outlook remains 'cool and changeable'" = "We actually don't know what the weather holds that far in advance, so this is the most likely outcome"

    In Russia they don’t even need to use slow-mo to capture snowfall on video....

    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.

    Is this not a general weather thought? not specific to an area or season?

    General worldwide weather banter. Post #1 outlines it.
    Moderators need somewhere to put the junk & banter you guys churn out.

    Over 90% skill level results for the whole year is very impressive.
    Meanwhile GFS is approaching where EC was 5 years ago ...

    I remember getting snow like that when I lived in Northern England in the 09/10 and 10/11 Winters. They were incredibly cold Winters and broke records for snowfall. Amazing how fast it covered roads and screwed up traffic.

    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.
