Bureau of Meteorology officially declared a La Niña event underway.

Two weeks ago, the Bureau of Meteorology officially declared a La Niña event underway.

To refresh your memory, La Niña refers to a change in the sea surface temperature and wind patterns across the equatorial Pacific Ocean - the upshot of which is a greatly increased likelihood of wetter-than-usual spring and summer weather across much of Australia.

This chart says it all.

Spring storms on the way Aust.
« Reply #62 on: October 20, 2020, 05:57:20 PM »
Rain and severe thunderstorms will spread across a large swathe of northern, eastern and southeastern Australia during the second half of this week, likely continuing into next week as well.

Two separate low pressure troughs will produce wet and stormy weather in parts of eastern, central and southern Australia on Wednesday and Thursday. While some of these storms could become severe, this will be an entrée for what lies ahead.

Brisbane.
Hail up to 14 centimetres has been reported at Forestdale, south of Brisbane, as parts of south-east Queensland were pummelled by a series of very dangerous and "life threatening" thunderstorms this afternoon.

Hail storms also battered southern Sydney and parts of the New South Wales south coast were warned about flash flooding as an "unstable" weather system moved across the state.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) issued warnings for people in parts of Queensland's Wide Bay, Burnett, Darling Downs and Granite Belt regions earlier this afternoon.

Sydney shivered through its coldest November 5th in recorded history, and one of its coldest November days of all-time.

Sydney saw temperatures nosedive in just a few hours on Thursday morning, from 21C at 4am to 14C by 11am — 10C below the November average.

Temps continued sinking throughout the day, meaning 14C was Thursday’s high–a reading that comfortably busted the previous Nov. 5th record low-max of 15.3C set in 1881 (solar minimum of cycle 11).

According to Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) records, Thursday’s high of 14C was also not far off the coldest November maximum of all-time either, which stands as the 12.6C

Sydney scorcher as parts of city hit 41 degrees
« Reply #67 on: November 16, 2020, 06:54:11 PM »
Summer is just two weeks away and in Sydney this Monday afternoon, it definitely feels like it.

Temperatures in the Harbour City can vary dramatically between suburbs due to the cooling sea breeze effect in coastal areas, but most Sydney suburbs are uncomfortably hot this afternoon.

Just after 2 pm, Penrith in the outer western suburbs reached a sizzling 41 degrees, while temperatures reached the high 30s in much of Sydney's west. Closer to the coast, it was 34 degrees at Sydney Airport at 2 pm, and 30 degrees at Sydney's "official" weather station at Observatory Hill, adjacent to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Penrith is consistently Sydney's hottest location. On January 4 this year, the suburb recorded the hottest ever temperature of any location in an Australian capital city, when it reached 48.9 degrees.

Severe storms hitting NSW: will they reach Sydney?
« Reply #68 on: November 23, 2020, 06:06:50 PM »
A line of dangerous showers and thunderstorms is moving over NSW, with a severe storm warning issued for some central and western parts of the state, including Sydney.

A low pressure trough passing over NSW from south to north has produced a line of intense showers and storms called a 'squall line'.

Earlier in the day, the squall line moved over southern NSW and the ACT, causing areas of blustery winds and heavy rain. Wind gusts reached 95km/h at Cabramurra just before midday, around half an hour before a gust of 93km/h was clocked at Mount Ginini.

Just after 1pm, Canberra copped 12mm of rain and cooled by 7ºC in half an hour as the squall line moved through, along with a 72km/h wind gust.https://www.weatherzone.com.au/news/severe-storms-hitting-nsw-will-they-reach-sydney/532937

Heatwave 'just another day' in one of Australia's hottest towns
« Reply #69 on: November 27, 2020, 07:43:14 PM »
With a late-spring heatwave set to impact large parts of Australia during the next week, consider yourself lucky you're not working outdoors in one of the hottest little towns in the country.
https://www.weatherzone.com.au/news/heatwave-just-another-day-in-one-of-australias-hottest-towns/532961

Bedourie, a tiny map speck of 140 people in the Channel Country of far west Queensland, is famous for giving the world an iconic piece of steel cookware – the Bedourie Camp Oven.

But throughout November, the town itself has been more like a camp oven.

Bedourie's average maximum for November to date has been 39.7 degrees, which makes it among the hottest towns in Australia for the month.

Many of those days have seen temperatures peak in the mid-40s, while only five days have reached less than 39 degrees.

Contrasting days in Sydney and Melbourne
« Reply #70 on: November 30, 2020, 07:21:27 AM »
The hot topic over the last few days has been the heat in Sydney, and rightly so as Sydney-siders sweated through another day where the mercury went above 40 degrees. However, while Sydney has sweltered, Melbourne had the opposite.

Gusty northwesterly winds developed during the day on Sunday, drawing in heat and causing temperatures to rise in NSW. Bourke's top of 42.9 degrees capped off a trio of days where the maximum reached above 42 degrees, the first time this has happened since 2009. This was indicative of the hot temperatures experienced in NSW.

On Sunday, Observatory Hill in Sydney reached 40.5 degrees after observing a high of 40.8 degrees on Saturday. The last time Sydney saw back-to-back days this hot was in January of 1960, over 60 years ago.

On the same day, Melbourne only reached a top of 18.6 degrees. This was over 20 degrees below what Sydney experienced despite only being about 700km apart. Elsewhere in the Melbourne area, one of the lowest maximums registered was 14.5 degrees at Ferny Creek. The hottest maximum in Sydney was at the Airport, at 42.6 degrees. The difference between these two temperatures is just shy of 30 degrees.
