    We're just down the road and it's almost nice, apart from the gloom ;)

    Pretty gloomy here in Elwood. No sun, not warm but not cold. Just chilly-mild grey overcast.
    Run along the beach a few hours ago was nice though, no wind

    It was mild yesterday, but cold again this morning.

    Looks like a damp QBW looking at the charts this morning.

    June 10-13 being the next key period to watch.



    Currently it features a initial coldfront on the 10th that peaks over WA.
    On EC the cold air weakens, and the Alps gets a lot of rain on the 10th.
    Then another coldfront comes behind it to bring an extended system.

    GFS, the cold air of the WA peak front stays somewhat intact over SE Aus and brings snow through the 10th onwards.
    GFS has the system continuing to the 13th.

    EC 00z is well and truly on the June 10-13th train.


    GFS sets it a bit further back, still with the precursor front.

    Note: similar characteristics to the system tomorrow at a low level POV.

    CMC is into it as well.


    AXS not as into it, has a weak coldfront behind a massive lot of prefrontal.

    Please explain that quote without a realtime vapor image to show a defined
    baroclinic band or low level pv anomaly with the model ull.

    Look who’s back again.....:whistle:
    System tomorrow:


    Progged 00z run system (note 06z is different):


    The key similarity is the S/SE wind aspect of the system, and the hook around from a low just offshore.
    Also the low setup (apart from a slight difference in position).

    Differences (note the word “similar”) are the low level pressure (the T+264 is deeper than the one for tomorrow).

    And the model has changed anyway away from that type of system.

    Is that enough to suffice, Quadrant/jwx/jeffx/stormhunter/coldfronts?

    AAO looks to be swinging back into +ve. The cold fronts are likely to lose their punch over the next couple of weeks IMO.

    That is a very large line of rain, do they normally extent that far up the WA coast?

    It happens when you have a 'fluid' mid to upper level jet moving moisture around the mid-latitudes.
    In Winter it's relatively common.

    LWT looks like it is sitting around just over the Bight for a little while after the 13th, not moving a whole lot. Once it moves across SE Australia, we could start to see it pick up (the 14-18th Jun period).

    RRWT guidance through the LWT is showing the 24-29th June period (below) to be the next potential period for snowfall. After that, our next candidates for snowfall periods look like 1-4 July and 15-20 July.


    We are seeing a bit of a flattening out in the LWT however, helped to be brought on by +AAM zonal anomalies in the SH mid latitudes.

    I may be stupid, but something I don’t understand about yr.no

    On the desktop version, in the long term forecast, like that one you just posted ... Why do the headline precipitation figures of the days across the top not show the daily total, but just the afternoon hours?

    For example here is one

    [​IMG]

    Monday 10th June across the top shows 10.4mm. However, further down the page, you see 10.4mm is the total for 10-16:00, not the whole day? The daily total is actually 26.7mm, which you have to add up yourself to calculate.

    In the pdf version it states this is how it works, but why?? Seems counter intuitive to me. The mobile version does not work that wayo_O

    I'd love tell you there's a good reason, but simply how it is, how it's always been. Yes, it's annoying.
    Same as the temperature.
    Essentially it's meant to be representative of what happens early afternoon of each day.

    It's interesting that see some comments in another weather forum that this year could be a lot like 1908 - dry start to the year with a big summer heatwave, followed by a decent winter growing season in Southern Australia. Neutral el-Nino and a swing into +ve IOD that year.

    Incidentally, winter 1908 was known for some monster cold outbreaks across SE Aust, particularly in late June, and in August and September.

    We've just about surpassed our entire May rainfall (60mm+) in the last 5 hours down on the Capes.

    Hopefully 100mm+ by Monday.

    can we beat the three year curse - 2013 - 2016 - 2019

    - I left out 2010 'cause it was a crap drought year not a crap wet year.

    then there's the three year in a row curse 2017 - 2018 - 2019

    - all round the outlook is remains gloom with hope or is that hope with gloom.

    MJO hitting a wall in the IO over the last few days.
    Nonetheless, there's a TD formed in the Arabian Sea West of Southern India, despite it not expected to develop into a TC in the near future. A lot of meandering moisture in the Northern IO.
    Major models like another kick in the MJO signal as it hits the Indo-Pacific region.
