We had the full complement of weather conditions yesterday for the wedding. Heat, blustering winds up on the Bulli escarpment, an ominous blanket of dark clouds descending which luckily didn't deliver until after we were esconsed in the marquee room and then a clearing which allowed the majesty of the view from the escarpment to be enjoyed... all the way down the Illawarra coast.   Now the only thing under the weather are the wedding guests. I'm totally buggered.

I hope the farmers paddocks are growing like our yard is !   And I so hope over the hill at Scone they get some.  I saw a news clip of the air show at Scone yesterday, and its as brown and dry as chips.

Chris was there and no they didn't get the rain.  It's so hit and miss and that part of the hunter is definately on the hit list.

Been hot all week, and just now a big storm front moving across Raymond Terrace/Maitland/ and way to the north, and its going to come over us before too long.  Just hope there is no hail.

Lots of very heavy rain that lasted about half hour, and now all gone.  Cooled down a bit, which is nice.
Looked hot at Randwick today.

Its rained here for the last 5 days.   Non stop.  Just rain, not flooding rain, but its all wet and mucky now.  If only they could get it over around Scone/Denman .    First time in over 20 years of visiting Widden Valley that it hasnt been glowing green.

Thread goes back on top due to the impressive dust storm which made headlines here where I am in Ukraine.

So how much dust did you eat for dinner tonight?

We got quite a bit, but it was very windy so most of it has moved on now.  Just arrived as I finished a huge spring clean too Cry  Some poor people,s paddocks have now blown out to sea.  Its snowing, as in blizzard conditions,  in the Snowy Mountains.  And over near Medowie, and near Pelor Main, which is Kurri way,  they are fighting out of control bushfires this afternoon.

This kind of weather pattern with lows forming rapidly and moving swiftly with high wind gusts at this time of the year are a rarity.

If it was late winter or early spring and there was no inkling of a drought then this massive dust storm would not of happened as such.

I was involved in a dust storm once travelling near the Southern California-Arizona border aroundChristmas time and also the area had been through a gripping drought. Winds do whip up at that time of the year. As we got closer to the blackout conditions we decided to stop for a couple hours. Later travelling on the expressway there multiple accidents seen.

They have just sent out warnings to locals saying the fire near Salt Ash/Medowie is out of control and be prepared. 
The drought is bad out west.  Nothing but dry dust to get moving as soon as winds come up.    Sydney copped some dust today so they will be finding out what conditions are like across the Divide.

The weather man agrees with you Brudder Smile

At the moment, we have a positive phAse of the Antarctic Oscillation, however you wouldn’t know it by looking at what is going on.

We have huge lower pressure North of us, that generally means a positive AAO, and allow the systems to head South, as has been happening.

Normally, lower pressure in the South doesn’t develop until high pressure develops through the North, but this time is different because the climate is now being forced.

We have so much water vapour leaking in from he tropics, its exploding these troughs and causing them to amplify when they normally would stay well South.

There was also a huge spike in the Ozone Hole recently, I think the relationship between it and the AAO is little known, but is having a huge impact.

Because there is no way that this is anything near normal, we don’t normally see cut offs in the upper levels become this intense in November.

All the media talk has been about the dust poor city folk are enduring but spare a thought for those whose land has lost thousands of tonnes of top soil Cry

Back on top....

Anudder front went past and Sydney has the wettest day in November in 34 years.

But the same front is causing some record heat in Qld and the fires there will prove catastrophic.
Mackay - hottest day breaking record which stood since 1955 (Sailor's Guide won the VRC Derby that year) and Cairns had 42.6C! WTF!!!!!
