We did well out of the 2 days; 25mm then 40mm. Very happy.
We got 22m and 2mm in Canterbury.
Nobody's complaining Verm. We're all loving the weather - especially Aucklanders who haven't had a summer like this in years. But as the economy finally looks to be recovering from the GFC recession a drought is the last thing we need. Dairy farmers are already counting the cost in the 10's of millions.
A cold change with plenty of rain and bluster is coming through the Shoalhaven at present. A fitting end to a hot summer on this 28th day of February.
Mt Wellington (Hobart) 2.8 degrees and falling with light showers.
Thredbo was 5 degrees and showers earlier too.
Cooma airport below 10 degrees, plenty of cool air in this change.
Victoria had its driest summer since 1984-85
Been coming down nicely in Dubbo since about 5pm. Up to around 40mm so far. Similar totals widespread across the central west and still falling. Could be some river rises in the next couple of days - although there are lots of dry dams around to buffer runoff.
Looks like some serious totals in NSW overnight.
Yup, another 34 mm o/n here.
Great Western HWY flooded at Katoomba apparently
60mm odd here. Was very light for the last few hours but heavy stuff just kicked in again. Lots of 50-100mm dots in the upper Macquarie and a few 100mm+ red ones as well.
Looking at obs on the BOM 25mm in 30 mins at Narrabri. Should start to lube things up. BOM forecast has that area and the Namoi in general getting 100-150mm for the day. Could get interesting later on.
Glad i finished my work out in the far west last week. Would have been stuck out there if we had been out there this week.
Hottest summer on record
Does Claude need to start an Autumn thread now?
It does, PG.
Driest summer in Victoria for 30 years.
Warmest Summer SSTs on record
Interesting when you consider that we broke the records of the past two years that were set during large La Nina events.
Also interesting how little rainfall we got this summer over the continent compared to the last two, which you can attribute to the changes in atmospheric circulation between a La Nina and neutral ENSO.
1. Not really that interesting. If SST records were broken during la nina events then you could begin to assume that during the next transition or el nino those records would be broken again.
2. That deciles chart shows a lot of blue, not sure what you're getting at there? It's saying to me that apart from TAS and an area of SW VIC there was good rain over the country.
