That is awesome!
My own video from inside the microburst.
A nasty blob is approaching Perth at the moment. Some rather large hailstones have been observed in Calingiri, about 2 hours NNE of Perth.
These cells look particularly nasty on Doppler Radar/Sat as they’re hitting the Jet which is generally signals hail as these latitudes.
Thiss was yesterday’s
Some pics from about 6:30 this morning, Thursday 27th Feb 2020. Click for larger
Been a fun few days. The sea scouts hall my son is a member of copped some damage, not too much thankfully.
apart from the humidity, the change of weather has been enjoyable
Some nice lightning in South Freo last night and this morning (sorry, no pics). Something a km or so to the south of us (Western Power switchyard maybe) was getting absolutely hammered.
Bridgetown down to 2.4ºC this morning. That's 7ºC below mean for April.
Yesterday, south of Paganoni rd on the freeway bike path...
and yet by Thursdsy we can expect a couple of 35s. Not happy Jan!!
Quite cold for hell?
MMMmmm... might be right...South of Paganoni Rd was in struggle town before the end of days....
It is really heaven for me.. 72 k's each way..
Hit 38.6 @ 1:17pm
Perth got to 39.5C at 1:49pm. Pearce got to 40.5C.
It;s currently 38 degrees in Perth, and 11 degrees in Hobart.
so on average, very mild and mediterranean
Stinker of a day!!
There is no way I'm going to like that.
I played tennis. Was hot.
Pretty amazing Sat View over WA atm with an upper low pressure system moving offshore. There is currently flaring convection throughout some parts of this system. If this had spent more time over water would it be possible to develop a warm core?
Walk with pooch this evening - rather humid.
Let me know when it develops snow and I'll be interested!
Thr wolrd is upside down at the moment - we can live in hope
Nice Wintery change through the SW this morning:
we scored about 10mm of rain overnight, with some heavyish stuff around 4.30am
Yeah, the dog didn’t like it.
Made sure she woke us up to let us know
A follow-up system to the one highlighted below is due to offer the Bluff Knoll it's first chance of snowfall this year in the early hours of Wednesday AM. Snow down to ~1000m is possible IMO.
It's raining! About f***in time.
damn I love wintty weather
(even if I am still wearing shorts and tshirt)
BoM's Severe Weather Warning is up:
IMHO, looking at EC & GFS tonight, it's fair to say snow is possible down to 700m ASL along the Great Southern region Wednesday 10am, which makes even places like the highest peaks of the Porongurups a remote chance.
Dynamic system this one.
FL ~1000m ASL (8-11am Wednesday)
I think the SW has a fair chance at a destructive tornado or two along the coastal fringe.
...And being a West Aussie cold outbreak there will be snow reports that are in-fact hail.
The snow observations options in the area are pretty limited at the moment . Bluff Knoll, Toolbrunup, and Mt Trio hikes are still closed. Which makes the highest open day hike in SRNP Mt Magog, at 856m. Hiking up Bluff Knoll in the bad weather is one thing, but the Magog trail isn't structured, and has a lot of steep scrambles and rocks to navigate. It's still possible to drive up to the Bluff Knoll car park, and potentially get a clear view up to the peak. Some crews have been working on rebuilding the trail there recently so let's hope they're around on Wednesday.
Some pics of Magog from not that long ago.
Post your obs, not your excuses.
Haha, well it's illegal for me to drive there for a start.
Been watching the system for a while, textbook calm before the storm type as per later autumn.
Had a high risk job (removal of a large dead jarrah over house) planned for later this week, but decided to get in done in the narrow window between last nights front & tomorrow's main course. Crew was dubious, but we hit the ground running on the back of last shower at approximately 1300 (on the Capes), as the moderate souwester eased right off, got the crown rigged down over the house & had tools going back into vehicles by 4.50pm. Six hours work in under four. Impending weather is great for speeding things up.
Quite enjoyable being high up in the canopy watching the multiple layers of cloud moving through.
A few hours of power early tomorrow to complete job, but can sleep a little easier knowing won't be so time critical ahead of tomorrows wind.
Well done K9
Possibly dodged a huge bullet by getting that done so quickly. I’ve got a feeling this is going to be a big system.
My parents are driving up from Albany (have a G2G pass) today to attend a family funeral. I’m hoping they get on the road early.
Not cold enough for snow IMHO
Most definitely is cold enough for Bluff Knoll tomorrow AM.
Note, Albany will hover around 10/11C all morning, tomorrow.
Should reach it's max (15C) early tomorrow evening IMO.
5-7m single swell train forecasted by BoM.
+30ft in the prog. Bunbury to Mandurah coastline will be a direct hit.
Sleep outside on deck last night, beautiful calm morning on Capes, a few showers, first breath of wind about 10am.
A mild winter last year & a summers worth of growth & fungal activity means plenty of arboreal loosening is likely with this first ‘cleaning’ system.
Temps at 4pm tomorrow will be 8-12C below the norm in the SW.
Squally frontal band pushing through SW.
Extending over >600km on composite radar.
Dropped nearly 10mm at Cape Leeuwin and brought 98km/h gusts.
I am sure there’s be some good frontal cloud structure to it. 30 mins out from Rotto, and should be on the city by about 1730hrs local IMO.
