24th-27th July Top-up system
Ooft Ulladalla look like they may be able to break their Monthly July record quite a weak one of 205mm considering that it's surrounded 350+mm records. They are currently at 181.4mms for the month. Also Mourya (The Lagoon) and Araulen have cracked a 100mms, escarpment really is doing the work.
Well after all the downcasts last week (my new word for decreasing forecast rainfall lol) I am thrilled to say we ended up receiving 31mm over 24hrs with thunder, lightning and tiny hail. And whoooeeee did it get cold after that last cell around 6:30pm with the hail. Breathing smoke outside now! Thank goodness for some good rain, it couldn’t be any more welcome!
Just cracked the 100mm mark, 103.4mm since 12am this morning. Very cyclonic winds from the south, and hitting about 30mm per hour rain rates.
162.05mm since 9am Sunday. Just finished raining now.
Ulladulla has circa 150mm from the system
winds gusting towards 40kt
she's a bona fide ECL.
Storm Force Wind Warning
A Storm Force Wind Warning is a statement which warns of winds averaging from 48 knots and up to 63 knots in coastal waters and high seas areas.
Wow. What a night at Tuross
Minor flood warning for Moruya and Deua rivers.
ground zero !
Thankfully. Fairly modest in Wollongong.
It is in pieces on a work bench getting some loving, according to a photo I saw a couple of days ago.
just a reminder for observations, could you please say where you are. It’s hard to look back thru pages of posts to figure it out.
Pouring down, mt vic NSW all night. 60mm at mt boyce.
I'll be going for a drive to the Bodalla bakery to get my partner's cake mid morning. Expecting lots of water. We went to the Bodalla pub last night, publican said in an understated way, "nice drop of rain". We won't be hiring a boat from Narooma Marina for her birthday, we'll be sitting inside
22 hours of wintery mix (Sans winter) at Charlotte Pass
Rain and wind all night in Sydney. Will be another fun drive home. Though the M8 was an awesome surprise. Likey.
100mm of wet stuff here in Glenbrook. That'll set things up nicely for Spring and should see a decent bump in storage across the catchments
I reckon we had about 170mm since Saturday here in Newcastle - the rain gauge was overflowing this morning and it maxes out at 150mm.
Did better than us we are at 75mm.
Rain n wind picking up here in Wollongong.
All my windward windows have leaf litter stuck on them..
Nervous eachside home owners up the central coast?
Rain event is not reaching Melbourne Thankfully despite warnings in East Gippsland and on the Alps.
I note Sydney’s and coastal NSW’s (Good) weather mantra is often overstated - compared with dry old Victoria.
Otford NSW, 128 mm to 9am. Added to 20 mm yesterday = 148 mm event total.
Is there any foundation to my suspicion that these ECL's are forming and transiting to lower latitudes with global warming?
140mm 24 hours to 9am in my guage at Kenthurst NW Sydney
71 mm up here.
We really scammed everyone with that one, more rain days as well than Melbourne AHAHAH.
About 95mms in the comparable 24hr period from BOM 9am to 9am. 102.2mms for the event total best July event i've seen in years.
The way the escarpment is shaped the falls in that area around Lapstone/RAAF base always seems to be heavier than anywhere else in the Lower Mountains. The 100mm figure is for a private AWS right there at Lapstone Primary which is the highest point in that area with no ridges shadowing it so probably in the best spot in terms of local topography. I should get my own AWS for comparison, it's only 500m east of my place but I reckon I would be closer to 75mm for this event so far than 100mm.
I swear With warming Melbourne is moving to a more subtropical climate with less winter-type frontal rain and a few more depression/troughs in summer/warmer months. Nothing like Sydney / Brisbane of course!
Geologically sitting atop the Horst Block.
That's really interesting, thanks! A lot of the escarpment appears to be shaped this way
Audley will be flooded then. Long way round for Bundeena and Maianbar residents.
Yep, It does come and go a bit with the various faults along the "monocline"
It is very clear in the rock strata viewed from Bluff LO. Other rock watching features are listed here https://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/heritageapp/ViewHeritageItemDetails.aspx?ID=1170645#
Fortunately I managed to pick up a couple of long necks before the lock at my local bottle’o
Yikes moderate sandbagging would've saved them, got very unlucky. The warnings were only rolled out yesterday arvo as well.
Radar is showing Eurobodalla Coast around Bateman's Bay seems to be at the centre of it. Last big blow had loosened the back shed at the coast house and now the roof has gone.
Rainbow Lorikeets snuggling up in pairs on the deck.
Huge sees too reports MrsOG, almost cyclonic winds rattling the roof space ventilator.
Ulladulla - 113 km/h gust at 10.22 am.
Wet, wet, wet in Drummoyne.
The 24 hrs to 9am at Sydney OH has had more rain than the past 3 Julys combined. This July so far is also the first above average July for rainfall since 2016, when 104.6 mm fell, this year so far we have 133.2 mm
That 75mm is the highest daily total since 2011, when 88.2 mm fell in a very wet July of 282.2 mm. For the record, July has not had a 100mm plus day since 1960, prior to that they were fairly common, occurring probably on average every 15 years, although lots of Julys with 200+mm have highest daily totals of less than 40mm.
24hrs to 9am: 75 mm
2019: 43.4 mm
2017-2019 Total: 67.2 mm.
Yeah my backyard was under 6 inches of water before the BOM had anything other than hazardous surf warnings up.
Wintery mix at Charlotte Pass now has moar added winter. Still not settling, but certainly now the right colour.
And it's pretty much matched its July monthly record from just what has fallen since 9am yesterday. 150mm to 9am plus 50mm since (vs the weak monthly record of 205mm). This July to date is now north of 300mm, still not a strong record though IMO.
When you refer to a record as weak, are you using the Blair Trewin terminology of the short-ish time period of climate data?
92mm at Gosford yesterday.
About an hour ago the 'dulla just cracked 2 tonne for the event. Moist.
Needs a bigger scale:
Far less sophisticated than that. The site has 31 years of data but the months either side, and other locations not far away (e.g Jervis Bay with 483mm in July, though admittedly back in 1918), have higher monthly records.
Having said that, a lot of sites seem to have a dip in July with June and August records being higher (Kiama, for example, is 671mm, 455mm, 728mm), but maybe that's because August 1998 was just so extraordinary.
