Weather In Australia 2017
« on: January 13, 2017, 11:05:41 AM »
Fire bans in place amid extreme heat.
Updated: 7:36 am, Friday, 13 January 2017

Temperatures up to 47C are forecast in northwest NSW and many parts of the state will swelter with the mercury predicted to rise above 40C on Friday.

The tiny outback town of White Cliffs is likely to be the hottest place in the state at an expected 47C, while Bourke is due for a scorching 46C, Dubbo 43C and western Sydney 42C.

The record for consecutive days above 40C could be broken at Bourke, which in 1892 was set at 22 days.

Meanwhile, it will be much cooler in Sydney city with a forecast maximum of 33C and conditions should ease for the southern half of the state during the weekend, a Bureau of Meteorology forecaster told AAP.

But the heat is set to come back early next week with many areas likely to again experience temperatures in the low to mid 40s.

'It's not over yet,' the BOM forecaster warned.

Meanwhile down south -

A severe weather warning for heavy rainfall and damaging wind is in place for much of South Australia as an intense rain band makes its way across the state.
But the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) said falls would not be as large as originally predicted.

Thirty-four millimetres of rain have been recorded on the Nullabor, 32mm at Ceduna and 24mm at Kangaroo Island since late last night.

The most significant rainfall for Adelaide is expected to come in the next few hours, but at a lower-than-expected maximum of 30mm.

Senior forecaster Vince Rowlands said the expected rainfall at the Mount Lofty Ranges had also been downgraded from the initial 80mm forecast.

High Temperatures in New South Wales Today 13th January 2017
« Reply #1 on: January 13, 2017, 11:35:59 PM »
Much of New South Wales is endured extremely high temperatures today, although Sydney's hottest weather may be tonight.

Total fire bans are in place across most inland districts of the state today as temperatures soar towards 47 degrees in the west. Fire bans also cover the Hunter and Sydney.

By midday, temperatures had already reached 44.9C at Wilcannia, 44.2C at White Cliffs, 43.3C at Bourke, 41.9C at Broken Hill, 41.6C at Griffith, 41.4C at Condobolin and 34.2C at Richmond.

Humidity is exacerbating the heat today by making it feel 3-4 degrees warmer than the actual temperature in some areas. Penrith's 38 degrees at 1:20pm felt more like 42.

Queensland: 'Very dangerous' Weather brings Heavy Rainfall & Flash Flooding.
« Reply #2 on: January 16, 2017, 04:33:42 PM »
Parts of south-east Queensland have been hit by heavy rainfall and flash flooding after severe thunderstorms, described as "very dangerous" by the Bureau of Meteorology, swept through late on Sunday afternoon.

BOM forecaster Michelle Berry said the storms were patchy, with much of Brisbane's northern suburbs missing out.

But she said it was the city's southern suburbs which copped a drenching.

"Carindale and also down towards Chandler — 107mm at Chandler itself and Carindale picking up about 95 [mm] and much of that fell in one hour."

BOM said there was 80 to 90mm in an hour in Ipswich, west of Brisbane, and Mount Glorious received 67mm in 30 minutes.

Energex said more than 1,400 of its customers lost power in the storm.

Police asked motorists to stay off the roads, with Stanley Road in Carina, Moggill Road in Indooroopilly, and Vulture Street in Woolloongabba all affected by localised flooding.

Dangerous Heat in Sydney to Persist after 121 year old Record Broken
« Reply #4 on: February 11, 2017, 11:01:31 AM »
After a 121-year-old heat record fell on Friday, dangerously hot weather will continue to bake Sydney, Australia, on Saturday.

Friday became the 10th day this summer to record highs exceeding 35 Celsius (95 Fahrenheit) at Sydney's Observatory Hill (the city’s official weather station) as temperatures soared to 37.5 C (99.5 F).

Never before have so many such days been registered in a summer since record-keeping began in 1859. The old record for the most days was nine, which was originally set during the summer of 1895-96, according to data from the Bureau of Meteorology.

The new record could reach 11 days with temperatures set to soar to around 38 C (100 F) again on Saturday.



At the Sydney Airport, a new record was set for the hottest February day with a high of 42.9 C (109.2 F) on Friday. The old record was 42.6 C (108.7 F) originally set on 21 February 1980.

For a city where a high of 26.5 C (80 F) is more common in February, this latest blast of heat will continue to put a strain on residents.

'Monster' Cyclone Debbie intensifies 27-03-2017
« Reply #17 on: March 28, 2017, 12:56:42 AM »
'Monster' Cyclone Debbie intensifies.

Queenslanders are being warned to brace for 'a monster' as Cyclone Debbie barrels ever closer to the state's northern coastline.

Debbie intensified to a Category 4 system at 8pm on Monday, the Bureau of Meteorology said. There is a chance that that it may reach category 5 strength before making landfall between Cape Upstart and Cape Hillsborough on Tuesday morning.

The cyclone is forecast to hit the coast near Bowen at 8am on Tuesday at the same intensity, ahead of high tide at 9.44am.

'This is going to be a monster of a cyclone,' Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told Ten News.

Forecasters predict wind gusts within Debbie's destructive core could reach up to 275km/h but say the situation is changing rapidly.

HEAVY RAIN of 250mm/24h is possible, with potential for flash flooding.

DANGEROUS STORM TIDE on Tuesday morning for coastal and low-lying areas.

Cyclone Debbie Hits Hamilton Island 28-03- 2017
« Reply #19 on: March 28, 2017, 11:57:42 AM »
THE eye wall of Cyclone Debbie is beginning to bear down on North Queensland as locals brace for a “harrowing” time.

Residents on Hamilton Island have reported winds “like freight trains” as the cyclone’s most dangerous zone passes through the popular holiday spot.

“It’s massive and so frightening. It’s right on top of us now and it’s stalled with winds in excess of 200km/h,” she said.

“It is so noise, it’s like half a dozen 747 jets coming through. It’s incredibly loud through the windows. Whether the house will stand a Category 5 which they are predicting, I don’t know.”
