Beware the Radelaide Forcefield, all will be quiet, except at the aerodrome where arrival & departure will be difficult for no apparent reason.*Pops head in...hello anyone awake* Is anyone keeping track of this incoming weather event due mid to late this week as it's being talked about on the fb weather groups apparently the LSE is inline for severe weather on Wednesday how bad is unknown at this stage but going by what BOM has routinely updated on their twitter page its going to get fairly gnarly
Unsure at this point of time FarmWeather although it may get fairly gnarly this evening at present I've only just been able to readjust settings on my wireless wx station from km/h to bf scale measurement so as to get a good idea of how strong this event will beYeah super windy never good for rain totals in my neck of the woods but does depend on exact direction at times. Brunt of it 5 to 7 pm?
Mannum area gets sfa in these setups of high winds. Clouds tend to use the ranges as a launching pad and disintegrate on the eastern side only to reform further east.Yeah super windy never good for rain totals in my neck of the woods but does depend on exact direction at times.

Yeah often dumps it further out way further. All shredding tonight might see 2 by morning but wow to the wind yesterday guess you’ve all seen strath racecourseMannum area gets sfa in these setups of high winds.

Came out of Aldi at the airport to a bright flash (cc) south of the airport somewhere around 6:15pm tonight.
Total fluke re seeing it.
Feel your pain Thunda, Wednesday and last nights weather events were pretty much garden variety severe weather where trees coming down pretty much stock standard what I wouldn't give for a bull in a china shop mutant cut off low that gives SA a right royal spanking with winds of 100-125 km/h likened to what we seen in 2011 and 2019 and nose hair pulling light showsim a bit peeved off with a forecast of 20-40mm for today.
my enthusiasm for S.A.s weather is at an all time low.
if this is all we get with -ve IOD and NW infeeds then we
are seriously screwed. as soon as it heads east it goes
completley boontah, the usual storms dying as they approach
us is still the same 'ol same 'ol. now what should be good rain
events is nothing but lame duck non delivering garbage. remove
your hats and take a bow to climate change, this is our lot.
while sw w.a., east coast and western divide get soaked s.a. is
destined to become the land of cactus and scorpions.
Per last nights post of which skifree reacted with a sad face I've just revisited the synoptics they were updated slightly to include late Thursday from my mention last night about a cold front or cutoff low potentially hiding off screen kinda rings true
If you look at far right corner of Thursday night's synoptic chart there appears to be a combined cold/warm front coming in behind a high pressure system of which is being pushed down away from South Australia by incoming low this week on Wednesday
Interestingly same high pressure of which is influencing our sunny day today and tomorrow will park its backside off the NSW coast from Wednesday onwards thus allowing cold fronts and lows to affect SA although until the next run of synoptics comes out later today its not an iron clad certainty
There's that secondary occluded front just off screen in Thursday's synoptic chart the question as to whether its going to affect SA during next week remains to be seen due to that strong high of 1029hpa keeping it off screen unless and looks like its interlinked with the 1030 hpa high sitting off NSW coast despite a trough sitting over us on ThursdayOoo Thursday morning an occluded front, they often hint of interesting things.
No rain to speak of down here and yes it was quite nice today not exactly warm but pleasant definitely boggles the mind as to if the -IOD is actually in play and were looking at warm weather come next monthAnother 5.3mm recorded at home this morning.
Otherwise a beautiful mostly sunny, even warm at times winter's day today.
Wouldn't be far off the mark with that statement FarmWeather seeing as BOM has already called a triple dip La Nina combine it with the looming -IOD gives us the makings of a very interesting severe weather season all we need now is a touch of warm weather throwing into the mixture a strong low pressure system and presto storms likened to 2016You rainforest dwellers are gonna have mould growing out ya cornhole if models are correct over new few weeks
