Huge crack of thunder last night shook the whole house. Just met up with a friend from Gunns Plains and he said exactly the same thing and that's about 40kms away... Now pouring, a real spring storm.
Hahaha! Just heard on the news that the sound was caused by a meteorite burning up as it entered the atmosphere. No wonder it was so widely heard.

As small and remote (from NSW!) the Tassie fields are, I still want to have a look and ski.
Any slide is a good slide :D:D

Good luck with this thread, I'll be checking in!
spent 10 years in Hobart and many many times would drive Norf and see Ben Lomand covered in snow but I never went out of my way to check it out

Just got home from another walk up to the Liffey falls, a few brief showers while walking then the heavens opened with hail about 1 minute after I got back in the car. Some wicked looking cloud formations about as I drove back to Deloraine. Fire back going at home now.

Hottest December day in Hobart since records began, I believe?

Blue Mtns, 1100M.
Historically in 1896 and 1897 there were a only a very few random obese citizens back then.
Today there’s a trend of obesity throughout the general population with associated health and economic consequences.

I'm not surprised. There was a bit of hail about. Thankfully I managed to find a cosy little pub selling cheeky brews by the beach at Kingston and settled in with a nice book. A fine way to spend the afternoon.

Wait, so you went to the pub, on your own, to drink beer and read a book? Live-wire.

It does look half decent, even though GFS has been periodically considering snowfall in Tassie every few runs or so for the last month.

What interests me is that the AAO hasn’t found a consistent state as of yet this year.

You can call it a neutral state if you want. But it hasn’t found any real mojo since the deep -AAO periods in Nov and Dec.

It’s weird that we had very strong negatives, and now the NH is feeling the global climatic base state and the AO is in record positive territory. Perhaps something to consider now that winter is starting to approach. The big question is what is it’s next move.

Anyways it looks pretty widespread on EC, particularly for this time of year:

Certainly gives it more credibility.

AAO has less tendency to variability and impact in summer months for us as we're typically dominated by MJO & tropical circulations.
That said, Tas has faired 'ok' climatically in the last quarter.

Feat or famine scenarios in regards to rainfall anoms.

February has probably changed things up quite a bit. Change in climatic influences, so we probably won't see the same effect as we saw last spring with the IOD and the SSW.

EC, CMC and GFS all look like they are on the same page, just some differences with the details. But of course it’s primarily about the big picture at this point.

CMC peaking a smidge more than EC, and GFS peaking a bit earlier than both of them.
Big feature there is that SO block pattern at 60S (SW of WA), correlates nicely with the RRWT chart posted a few days ago.
