    Same as water swirling around past a pier or a rock in a river current.

    I havent had much of a chance to look at weather since snow season, but I like what I see mid/late next week in terms of rainfall for the Eastern part of the country. Remnants of TC Owen linking up with a deep trough to generate widespread showers/storms across 3 states is the go. I think I just want to see 2010/11 all over again.

    I was just checking out the charts as well. Very extended trough pattern for se Aus, effectively starting this weekend and stretching into next weekend but really deepening mid-late week.

    What else you gonna do when it's 38C outside? Look at the charts to see when the rain is coming of course.

    Not that hot in Canberra but warm enough. Whilst we had some reasonable Spring rain I was just having the thought this morning 'when is it going to again'!

    Major models are aligned and locked in here now.
    This thing could potentially solve alot of problems inland.

    Reminds me of the deepening low in the SE last Dec, with the upper level component threading the eye of the needle through SA and drawing in the inland troff.
    EC


    EC also has a landphoon forming to the West of GoC on Thursday which GFS doesn't wanna know about. An interesting feature that should be watched.

    Solid (-) OLR values through inland SA/NSW are evident in our current phase (Thursday-Saturday's system).

    Absolutely still near JB Plain...bit weird ...it’s been a very hot day down Lower....I was expecting violent thunderstorms.

    Thought I heard a rumble just now....radar showing some colour down Mansfield way....we have had a few drops this arvo since I got up here....better not get dry lightening or things will not be good on the lower slopes which have been baking all day.

    Off to bed in a min. got stuff all sleep in Melb last night.

    Evening...



    Breeze picked up here circa 8:30 p.m. but has backed off now....it’s still quite warm for the mountains. Paddocks drying out very quick.

    Mid-arvo should see the propagation of some storms through Macedon, Southern Alps (Vic) and southern GDR in to NSW this arvo.
    Oodles of potential through Vic, but I do like the prospect of severe stuff leeward of the Brindies (ACT) & Snowy Mountains tonight.

    Looking really good for the folk out west this week.
    Has a strong scent of pineapple into the cut-off.
    Plenty of good viewing.

    Radar lighting up through Central and Eastern regions of the state.
    Southern Riverina (NSW) has a warning up to. The cross-graining cell North East of Deni @ Jerilderie is on fire right now, moving ENE.

    Sydney currently overshadowed by the single cell's overshoot; some 80 kms SW of the city. Completely clear to the North of the city. What a shame, as it's spoiling a cracker of an arvo here.

    Looking South across the harbour.

    The amusing thing for me about the pending rain event for us is that it falls on my work Christmas party on Friday and the big December rain event from last year fell on, you guessed it, my work Christmas party on a Friday... Perhaps it's an omen.
