    According to the BOM the minimum at Observatory Hill was 27.1C overnight which is the warmest ever December minimum and second only to that February 2011 reading of 27.6C. I feel privileged to have been part of it.

    Interestingly (to me anyway :nerd: ) the temperature in Wollongong rose around 10C between 12.30am and 2am as the wind swung round to the NW, with 5C of this increase between 1am and 1.05am :eek:

    So ( stating the obvious ) the relative position of the Hadley Cell moves South of the Eq as we shift into the s hem summer ?
    Then moves North towards the Eq in our Winter.

    Cool change has reached Moruya - should be in Bateman's soon. Hopefully it picks up speed this afternoon and reaches further north ealier than it snail like crawl up the coast today. Braidwood is showing a solid drop as well.

    Yeah I do remember from a while ago that SE trades west of WA meant a Hadley cell in development. Map will come in handy for many.

    That should flip over the next few weeks. i think you may see some fronts but nothing really strong mostly all weak.

    It's really just all the patterns and processes I have observed since I started "weather watching " as a kid...
    All I had was synoptic and satellite charts to predict surf and snow.
    Now putting a name and the science to it all .....

    Another strong cold front sweeping through here in Vicco. I reckon the last stationary high pressure system we had down here was in May. Some sort of record for volatility in the atmosphere.

    Three days either side of Christmas. Most certain time for it to snow in Tassie I reckon. Summer starts about the 16th Jan, ends about March 10th.

    True, but I am actually more surprised at the levels! -32C at 500mb is some seriously cold uppers for this time of year.

    Anomaly on the model run, I'd say. Virtually no hope on latest couple of runs (GFS & EC).

    Nice to hear a rumble here in Melbourne this morning.
    Almost had forgotten what thunder sounds like.
    Looks like it is going to get pretty warm friday for 4-5 days, then potentially a big change with a decent drop

    Really nice little storm cells came right over me, nothing spectacular, but we havent had that at all this spring/summer so i'll take it. 5mm dropped at my place but we got a couple of really good ones, big drops.
