    Towers for hours to the West and South of Sydney today, which is odd as progged CAPE wasn’t looking so lofty until later. Started early it seems...
    The cheeky cell over Kiama looks to be kicking off quick. Below is a little stack out Colo way.

    Just want some goddamn rain. It is dry AF out this way. Forecast rain from that weak trough on the 9th and 10th is diminishing with each model run, which isn't entirely surprising.

    I suspect that system moved over the NSW side of the range in the last few hours. Strong winds, some rain and thunder. PV seems to be getting some but less than Buller.

    Here is how it looked on approach around 7:15.

    Rain and stormy in Jindy. Probably about 3mm in an hour at a guess.

    EC is showing the next precipitation event to be the 12th, again not a lot of rainfall at the moment.


    GFS and GEM 0z prefer the 10th for a precipitation event, with the node on the 12th confined to Tasmania on GFS specifically.

    Yeah, that’s the hopeful one for now.
    I note EC has it upgraded on 00z Vs earlier runs, so it’s trending ok.

    Ensembles also liking some trough-based precip 4-5 days later, but that's light years away yet.

    Yeah I saw that too, but the determs are struggling at a 4-5 day range ATM, so agree that it is distant. Verification is relatively low at the moment IMO. As to be expected as we move into Autumn, but could also be other factors.

    Sustained -‘ive AAO/SOI is giving the models a good reason to take Taswegian snowfall with some seriousness.
    Not nodal by any means but dilated will do.

    The kiss of cold air on my face leaving home this morning in Melbourne almost made me cry from happiness. I have a friend who lives in Gisborne and she called me to excitedly say she needed to scrape a bit of ice off her car window.

    We're a crazy bunch us cold lovers.
