    Forecast is 42 on Friday in the western suburbs, so about 40-41 in the lower mountains. Do not want.

    Up in Shepparton for the mrs's half ironman triathon tomorrow. Light shower just past but the smell of rain on hot earth is very summer like.
    Become very muggy again and by the look of the radar, I hope the annex of the van keeps the kids dry!

    Solid rain for me, 40mm was pretty much bang on, really heavy at times on Saturday night.

    Honest to god, there is nothing better than sitting inside with the rain belting down, fire going, sport on the TV then sleeping in the next day with the rain still pelting down.

    Soooo I have terribly bad luck when it comes to camping. (take note anyone reading this if you were thinking of joining @sara777 and I on any of our back country expeditions next year)

    Anyway I have been booked in to go camping this weekend at Green Patch in Booderee National Park (near Jervis Bay)

    Can anyone put me out of my misery of whether or not I will have a pleasant weekend? Weatherzone is suggesting rain is possible. :-(

    Going on EC, it should be ok until later on Sunday. Monday looks wet.

    Models are not super stable out more than 4 days, so that's not a super confident prediction.

    Eh, looks ok to me, if not super amazing beach weather. I like the simplicity of the BOM forecasts, here's the Nowra one. My rule of thumb is if they say "showers" it's nothing to worry about, if they say "rain" it's time to worry.

    Super camping tips if it might rain - take a large tarp or fly to rig between trees or your car to make a cooking/hangout shelter. Alternately, if you have hatchbacks, move the cars so they're back-to-back so the raised hatches almost meet and form a shelter, throw a tarp over the top, sit in the boot, get the stereo going and break out the drinks. Good times.

    ITCZ is in a weird stagnant position at the moment, which is why the SE isnt seeing many blocking patterns. For the rest of the country's sake I hope we get a big polar blast come through to push it up north again and get the monsoon kicking.

    My place was over 5mm, cant remember the exact figure, but it was a good follow-up fall to the larger one on the weekend. Rained quite heavy at times, but only in short bursts.
