    I'd love to see the stats on lightning after this. It's a constant strobe light and we're not even under a storm at the moment

    Not to take away from Sydney's lightning, but there's still some snow on the radar.


    26-29 March is on the EPS forecast for some snowfall.

    Looks like the "Brick Wall" won this round against the MJO. Upside to a dud round is that it should have little impact on its Pacific track to pump up ENSO for another crack at a real El Nino later this year. Warm Neutral could be the go for 2019.

    Global lightning strike count is over 23 000. Mild activity in USA but mostly Australia. Queensland currently crackling away as well.

    South Coast special.
    00z run on EC has a go at an ECL off Bateman's Sunday, but looks to get shoved onshore.
    It had better stay South as I am hiking BMs tomorrow/Saturday.

    And the local media is talking up a possible cyclone off FNQ next week. Can't really see how it's going to happen based on that chart.

    Don’t ‘need’ the MJO for a clone to form, it just betters the odds.
    It’s a tricky time of year for forecasting but I think we’ll see a cyclone form in our region over the next fortnight IMO.

    There is a low sitting south east of PNG that's be monitored but IMO it's still too early to say what it will do.

    Trofs parked eitherside of the GDR, anything convective for the BMs will be residual and capped, over the next 24.
    I am done before the weekend warriors hit it tomorrow AM anyway.
