    I'd think only small tho - looking at this I thought it's too warm. ??

    Visited friends out in Sydney’s West yesterday. Was 40 plus and not much better this morning. Trip back to the mountains was hot till we drove into this on Lake George. Temp dropped from 37 to 20 degrees. Poured rain then we drove out of it..... temp back to 33!!




    By Berridale temps were down to 11.5 degrees and raining. Stopover in Jindy now at a nice 12 degrees. That’s better!!

    A few very close CTG strikes here in the eastern Subs, light/mod rain but the charges were worthy of severe.

    12 degrees is a bit f a joke at this time of year. I think top of 30 is Goldilocks zone for summer. Hot enough to feel like summer, without being oppressive.

    Neighbours pool must be 28-30 degrees C without heating. Lovely temperature to stay in for hours. Bit of evaporative cooling by sticking you wet bits out.

    Gotta love the scared wife telling old mate to get in the car as if the dust was going to eat him.

    We had another little dust event on the change last night - but nothing like that.

    Another Southerly change due through Sydney and Southern coastal NSW on Wednesday AM.
    Should be through Sydney ~10/11am.

    We may see some cells pop around CT's and BM's by the afternoon, thanks to some mid-level instability (trough based).
    Sydney MAY see some activity off the BM's by mid-arvo, where there's maturity in the cells.
    Showers, however, are inevitable for the Sydney basin.

    Nice cells coming over the range at the moment. Thunder, lightning and some solid rain at 1100 ASL - 10 mins worth here but welcome..... I expect Jindy is getting a fair dose as well......

    EDIT: 7 mm in that 10 mins :thumbs:

    Wearing a light jumper in Melbourne today. What a nice diversion from the heat.

    Looks like we had a touch of rain but not enough to do a lot

    Wow. Doing a whole lot better than I had perceived. Especially given we’re in El Niño alert and off the back of a +ive IOD event in spring.

    Funnily enough, we've had the lightest, tinniest, weirdest mizzle (almost like spitting) all day under COMPLETELY blue, clear skies here along coastal Sydney. It's almost like low-level virga - unregisterable precip.
    Very humid and you can see it looking up/down the coast.
    It's been very odd.
