You nailed it.
I've had re-employ myself today
And you'll have to fire yourself tomorrow when it rains again.

Got a long way to go if it wants to get to 24-25°C today. But the cloud is starting to clear over the Southern Highlands so will clear in Sydney in the next couple of hours. A beautiful day coming up after a slow start.

Lines of storms are moving across the State, fizzling out at they reach the Divide. There’s been some rainfall inland, reaching the South Coast. Falls are heaviest in the SE quadrant, over 25 mm at some sites in the Snowys and ACT, 14 mm in Canberra.

Warm and overcast here. Still chilly indoors. The building, or the shady side at least, reacts on a scale of weeks, not days, to temperature cycles.

Unfortunately not going to happen, I should be able get most jobs done before the rains arrive. Although I did try to have yesterday arvo off as that cloud cleared, but the boss was an A-hole!!

Already quite mild this morning despite the cloud. Currently 19.5c.

Unpleasantly warm, wet and windy in the upper blue mtns. Driving rain from the north (the only direction that causes leaks in our roof).

Bizarrely we had no leaking during the several hundred mm a month ago. Different direction.

B1 v B2 - both dry till 4 pm. Just a zephyr v a solid gale.
B1 = Bankstown - Northerly 13 with gusts to 24. B2= Bellambi also N at 67 gusts to 82. The GDR has effectively wrung out the precipitation leaving the Sydney coast dry.

Rain started here about an hour ago.
Light at first, but rather steady (to moderately heavy) at the moment. It was a long time coming. The radar has been such a tease today!
Temp has dropped to 17.2, after reaching at top of 21.5 just after 2 pm.
It was 18.2 when I got up at 5.30 this morning!!
I rather like days like today. Very moody skies and great cloud formation at times.

Although indoors, the office in Port Kembla has tin roof and a window - I didn't really notice any heavy rain nor significant wind today. Only got a bit breezy when I got home to Horsley, and even then its not really worthy of a true "Spring Gale".

Yeah I went to Fairy Meadow today. Was completely different to Woonona.

Winds are crazy gusty. It just blew the lid cap off my chimney !

Seems to be very localised, no other AWS in the Illawarra has got past 60km/h. It's mostly going over the top of us at Keiraville but there's been a handful of very strong gusts. It's actually swinging around as a NE'ly here which feels very bizarre.

A very whacky wild winter, had mosquitoes outside my front door today. Despite the 18-degree start to the day, people on the train dressed for a sub 10-degree morning.
-------
Looks like minimums bottomed out in late June; 400mms tends to do the trick. But the sustained rise in maximums is mostly likely going to continue. As is the norm in August, prefrontal 20+ degree days will feature more heavily.

Canberra has an “event total” of 78 mm (August 1-5). During the same period Perisher has had 153 mm. I expect that most of that would have been rain, given how warm it’s been.

Sydney’s had just 1 mm this week. There’s blue sky about, the Sun’s trying to break through. There’s a cloud band passing longways over Sydny’s North, but it’s slowly shifting Northwards. It’ll be sunny soon and once again maybe we can add 2° to the forecast.
