Yeah I did see that too, but to be fair none of the Sydney basin stations had any recorded rainfall from those showers which disintegrated pretty quickly. So I'd call that at least a pass for BoM.No mention of showers for Sydney in the forecast today yet plenty are entering the basin from the south??
Quite an interesting weather situation happened last night and early this morning which the NZ Met Service shows quite nicely, and it explains the showers which occurred on the south coast as that low spun up an occluded front.
12am chart (NZ time I assume).
And then you see that Sydney just got clipped by the tail end of it on the 6am chart, and therefore the showers quickly fizzed out.
That light precip on radar around the Central Coast which is likely virga, is possibly the last remains of this front before it quickly moves eastward, as seen in subsequent charts).
