    Great reply and it's why ski.com is so much better than the old WZ forums. Mods are onto stuff all the time and actually care about the members and are open to their thoughts/ideas.

    @Steve777 I will also add to POW's post that clicking Watch Thread isn't enough; many times you will not get notifications of new posts, i.e. slipping under the radar.

    The solution? Click the Forums tab on the top left, and from the drop-down menu click Watched Threads—this will make sure that you don't miss any notifications of your watched threads. I recommend that you leave the Watched Threads page as your default. I used to find this forum troublesome before knowing about this feature…now I find it enjoyable. Game changer!

    ASCAT winds offshore registering 40-45 knots at the core (20 mins ago), directing straight to the Mid-North Coast:


    Notably a couple of 40 knots barbs just near-shore off Newcastle too.

    I believe you only get a notification email is (a) that option is selected when you click 'watch thread' or you've replied, and (b) for the next reply after your last viewing of the thread.

    You won't receive a notification as in the red number next to the flag top-right unless someone quotes you or mentions you. So yes, the "Watched Threads" IMO is the easiest way to keep up with threads of interest

    It looks as though this event is over. The low is very deep, about 988 mb, but it's moved out in the Central Tasman. It will still generate big waves along the coast, but the wind's dropped to right back and the rain seems to have finished apart from a few coastal showers.

    A couple of event totals (9:00 Friday 10 - 18:00 Wednesday 15th)
    • Sydney OH : 41 mm
    • Penrith : 16 mm
    • Newcastle:30 mm
    • Bega: 123 mm
    • Bathurst: 12 mm
    • Dubbo: 47 mm (since 9:00 Thursday - mostly on 11th).

    Batemans Bay and Sydney (albeit less so) SSTs really getting supercharged by the Tasman Low, power of SE/SSE wind flows on the NSW coast.

    opposite to what is seen with the NE 'er and resulting upwelling.
