It looked a clear night when I was out a little while ago but there’s a mass of cloud off the coast with showers (including a few small orange cores) and a bit of lightning further South.
There’s a bite in the wind. At OH it’s 12° but the ‘apparent temperature’ is only 4°.
My mate is doing it. Glad it's him and not me.Max of 6.2 here today upper BMs, down to 2 now, windy as all day, never above 0 windchill.
A little sleet / small hail mid arvo.
Challenging conditions for those running the UTA today and tonight
Yes under or over 20 is my guide to many temperature and seasonal things
20 is not a temp I’m likely to see for several months now.
looks like we wimped out at around -4 this morning, apparently some light breezes at times overnight crueled the temp drop.
I reckon some cold sinks around here saw colder. Shame we don’t have a reading along the parts of town near the river flats, always chillier by a degree or two.
I came home from a Pink Floyd tribute show last night around 11.30 and it was about -1 near the river but about 1 at the airport.
it was a stunning day today though, in the sun it was no jumper required, later though a sneaky breeze got up and in the shade was definitely a bit fresher.
another neg morning coming up but the house is warm with some good wood burning
Off to Dubbo for the day tomorrow. It will feel tropical
Then in Sydney city centre again Tuesday to Friday. Leave the polar fleece at home
I worked in Chippendale for 14 years.^^^^^
Good summary above @DaveM and @Steve777 re the change of seasons. I agree with the summations.
I'm lucky that my birthday occurs around this time of year. A lovely time of year to share a lunch with the family under bright blue skies at a nice restaurant somewhere overlooking Sydney Harbour or our beaches. Or, being autumn, somewhere up in the Blue Mountains or Southern Highlands where the deciduous colours are in full display.
I've been lucky enough to have perfect weather for such a day for two decades now, weather it has been in the mountains or in the city areas.
Today we went to Chippendale to a place called Spice Alley. Highly recomended. A bit off topic but it was gorgeous sitting in a laneway eating delightful Asian cuisine in full sun on a chilly Sydney afternoon.
Best time of year in my opinion.
Steady on Dave. Our forecast for tomorrow is -1 to 17. Bathurst is -1 to 13. Not to different.
We got to -2 this morning so not touch warmer than Bathurst.
In Darwin during the dry season it might be 90% or more.If the weatherman just said "same as yesterday" wouldn't they be close to right 75% of the time?
Confirmed on various Canberra cams here: https://www.windy.com/-Webcams/Aust...ebcams/1386246304?satellite,-35.304,145.822,7Canberra still 4.5C heading on midday. Can only assume the fog moved in and put a cap on temps!
Seemed a little Northern Beaches-focused. Was bugger all rain here in Bondi today.I drove from Wollongong to Narrabeen and back today.
There were some heavy sustained showers close to the coast.
More than expected or forecast.
It’s mild, sunny and a bit damp here. While it’s clear here, WZ Layers shows lots of fog around the Sydney Basin and in valleys.
