And a large pod of dolphins was competing with surfers near Elouera Beach Cronulla this morning.

Western Sydney has been beautiful. Mostly sunny and cool. Just some brief patches of cloud and certainly no threat of any showers.
I see Nelson Bay had 41 mm's up till 3 pm. That's a decent drop.
You must've missed my post.
Yet you are the first to point out when others in the past have repeated what has been said in earlier posts.

Just had a go at plotting the temperatures of Obs Hill and Bankstown AP and attached a moving average of 14 days. Definitely an interesting year the gradient of the maximum decline has been quite small. Looking like the average for maximums has bottomed out but minimum's continue their decline which is pretty expected due to ocean temps decreasing as well.

I typed up my post, then got distracted by several work phone calls.
I came back to this site, saw my unsent post and just pressed send on my previously typed up post.
I sincerely apologize if I posted anything that was offensive to you or any other posters.

Anyone able to give me a high level weather prediction for Moruya the week starting 4/07?

I’m down there doing skydiving course, but want to be certain of weather, not easy to get away with twins at home. Want to make sure it’s happening that week

It was bright and sunny when I left home for the Central Coast this around 9:30 morning. There were interesting cloudscapes to the East and North, puffy cauliflowers. I didn’t get a chance to take pictures. Lower cloud closed in as I headed North, with light showers as I took the Doyalson exit. The day in the Lake Macquarie area was fairly cloudy with sunny breaks and little or no rain.

There are yellow-red cells out to sea now, coming ashore in the Lake Macquarie and Newcastle area, with some significant totals as others have noted. Hopefully the rain stays North. Sydney had about 1800 mm (~ 72”) from November to May, more than a Darwin Wet Season. Surely, like Darwin, we deserve a Dry Season.

My own gut feeling is that La Niña is now over.
We can but hope. Waters around Northern and Eastern Australia are still quite warm so we’re not out of the woods yet.

It’s partly cloudy here after a bit of rain overnight - about 20 mm on the Sydney coast grading down to a millimetre or two West of about Olympic Park, 7 mm at Chatswood.

I think the rain is over for now, with a warm spell (low 20s max) over the next few days. Tomorrow is the Winter solstice, at 7:13 pm Eastern Australia Time. From that time the long climb back to either Summer or another Wet Season begins. Time to sacrifice a goat to the Sun god.

The first 20 days of Winter have felt cold, even though there have been no particularly cold maxima or minima.

Choosing Bankstown to represent Sydney, we have an average temperature range of 5.4° - 17.7°, compared to the long term average of 6.8° - 17.8° (6.9° - 18.0° 1991-2020).

So maxima have been close to average, minima about a degree and a half below. It’s been quite dry, just 4 mm month to date.

Sydney Airport is tracking 8.5° - 17.8°, -1.3° to -0.3° compared to 1991-2020 averages.

The remainder of the month looks likely to haul these temperature averages upwards.

Dafuq is up with the Sydney radar? Trying to figure out if Im going to get wet if I head out for a ride and its all over the shop. have noticed similar false echo's in recent days as well.

e.g. those cells around the lower BM's are fake news.

Yep the false echoes have been super frustrating. I’ve been noticing them more on the wz app than on the bom website radar.

I ducked at one point when in a canyon the other day, and a blip of reception showed a storm cell popping just out of sight behind the cliffs. Time to get out of the narrow constricted section

It disappeared with the next frame. Phew.
