The thunderous roar of half a metre of Far North Queensland rain
« Reply #20 on: April 22, 2021, 07:20:56 AM »
ou're lucky there's no volume on this video because Barron Falls, about 40 minutes inland from Cairns on the Atherton Tableland, would give your eardrums a serious pounding.

The falls, which drop a total of 125 metres on the Barron River, are absolutely pumping this week after a deluge of rain in Far North Queensland.

Here is a still image of the falls this week.

WATER spouts off the coast at Old Bar, near Taree on NSW's North Coast, were matched by a brief but intense storm with hail, as the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) predicts a cold snap and widespread rain for the remainder of the week across the east coast of NSW.

The weather event was short and sharp this afternoon (May 4) with Jason Fitzgerald of Port Macquarie capturing some of the triple water spout action off Old Bar beach.

At one point, five water spouts had formed and were seen offshore as far north as Harrington.

Queensland cold snap after state pummeled by intense storms
« Reply #22 on: May 13, 2021, 06:01:24 PM »
A cold snap is headed for Queensland after parts of the coast were smashed by severe overnight storms.
A massive clean-up operation is underway after the state was pummeled by powerful thunderstorms, hail and damaging winds.
The intense weather system saw a millimetre of rain dumped almost every minute in some parts of the state's southeast.

Sydneysiders woke to another day of temperatures below 9C, making it the longest stretch of cold days in May in 54 years.

Hail in WA, with snow a chance this morning
« Reply #25 on: May 24, 2021, 07:24:40 PM »
Ben Domensino, Monday May 24, 2021 - 09:35 EST
Hail has blanketed parts of Western Australia's Great Southern District amid a surge of icy weather on Monday morning.

A cold air mass moving up from the Southern Ocean is today spreading over southwestern districts of Western Australia.

While showers, thunderstorms, blustery winds and cold air have been affecting the state's southwest since the weekend, the coldest part of this air mass is arriving this morning (Monday).

Streets in Albany were covered in a coating of small hail in the early hours of Monday morning as showers pushed ashore within the frigid parcel of air.

Wet winter ahead sparks warnings about upcoming bushfire season
« Reply #26 on: May 30, 2021, 05:56:52 PM »
Most Australian's are in for a wetter than average winter with experts warning the extra rainfall could increase the danger during upcoming bushfire season.
The latest seasonal outlook released today by the Bureau of Meteorology BOM) shows warmer and wetter conditions in northern Australia, while parts of southern Australia could be drier than average.
"Our climate drivers are currently neutral, meaning we're not getting El Niño or La Niña bringing particularly dry nor particularly wet conditions to the continent," BOM Climatologist Dr Lynette Bettio said.

Record-breaking freeze in the southeast Australia
« Reply #27 on: May 30, 2021, 06:02:52 PM »
It has been the coldest May morning in more than half a century as widespread frost and sub-zero temperatures grip southeastern Australia.

Melbourne shivered through its coldest May morning in 72 years on Sunday, reaching a frost-inducing 1.7°C. It was also its coldest morning in 3 years and coldest outside of winter since 1970.

Records tumbled in Horsham as the mercury fell to a mind-numbing -4.3°C, its coldest May morning in 64 years of records. It was also the coldest May morning on record for Yarram (-3.3°C) and Kanagulk (-4.0°C), although these observation sites have only been around for 13 and 17 years respectively.

Temperatures also plummeted outside of Victoria, with Adelaide having its equal coldest May morning in 15 years, dropping to 3.5°C. However, if only considering the current West Terrace site (that was offline from 1979 to 2016), it was the coldest May morning in 101 years. Adelaide Airport was even colder despite being near the coast, reaching 2.2°C, its coldest May morning in 36 years.

Even locations a long distance away from the mainland felt the chill. Norfolk Island fell to a seemingly mild 12.5°C, but this was its coldest May morning in 42 years.

Dozens of locations throughout Victoria, eastern parts of South Australia, and southern New South Wales, had their coldest May morning in at least 15 years, and falling between 6 and 12 degrees below average for this time of year.

Winter's first cut-off low to deliver dangerous weather next week Aust.
« Reply #28 on: June 03, 2021, 07:22:56 AM »
A prolonged outbreak of windy, cold, wet and stormy weather could impact eastern Australia next week.

A large upper-level cut-off low pressure system will move over southern and southeastern Australia next week, most likely between Tuesday and Friday. This simply refers to a broad, isolated pool of cold air several kilometres above the ground that has moved up towards Australia from the Southern Ocean.

The image below shows where the cut-off low is expected to be located on Thursday June 10, according to three different forecast models.

As reported last week, the icy front forecast to bring snow to the central and northern tablelands of New South Wales (NSW) is still on course to hit this Wednesday and Thursday.

Temperatures are expected to tumble some 16C below the June average for central and eastern parts of the state. While practically ALL of the Aussie continent should brace for an extreme chill by Wednesday:

Sydney's coldest day in decades
« Reply #30 on: June 10, 2021, 10:17:21 PM »
Sydney just shivered through its coldest day in 37 years as icy winds blew across NSW.

Clouds, rain and a freezing air mass wrapping around a large and slow-moving cut-off low pressure system prevented the temperature from getting any higher than 10.3ºC at Sydney's Observatory Hill weather station on Thursday, as of 5pm AEST.



Image: Enhanced water vapour satellite image showing the upper-level cut-off low over NSW on Thursday.

If this temperature isn't exceeded by 9am on Friday, this will officially be Sydney's coldest day in 37 years.

Based on the running maximum temperatures at 5pm, it was also the coldest day in 37 years at Inverell (6.1ºC), 29 years at Mudgee (5.9ºC) and 25 years at Sydney Airport (11.4ºC).

What makes today's cold weather in Sydney even more remarkable is that it occurred under predominantly northerly winds.

Blizzards are the latest phenomenon to hit the Land Down Under, which have dumped up to a metre (3.3 feet) of early-season snow across vast swathes of New South Wales (NWS) as the state shivers through historic low temperatures.

According to 9News, NWS has suffered “a record-breaking start to winter … Sydney’s coldest day in 37 years.”

Sydney Observatory registered a Tmax of 10.3C on Thursday — the lowest since 1984; while the city’s Airport logged 11.4C — a reading just 0.1C off its lowest June Tmax on record, in books dating back to 1939.

“It [Thursday] is definitely one of the coldest days in Sydney for a really, really long time,” said the Bureau of Meteorology’s Gabrielle Woodhouse.

A 9News headline reads: “NSW records coldest June day in 122 years.”

Other chilly locales include:

Bankstown, which woke to a low of 2.2C on Thursday morning and a windchill of zero.

And Campbelltown, which saw a low of 0.0C and a feels-like of -3.1C.

Winter arrives in Western Australia
« Reply #32 on: June 14, 2021, 06:14:43 PM »
A strong cold front is crossing southwest Western Australia, bringing gales, rain, storms, and the potential for snow on the Stirling Ranges tonight.

While the southeast endured an unusually prolonged cold outbreak during the second week of June, the southwest has largely been warmer than average—the exception a brief cool spell Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th. A strong cold front is now crossing the southwest, bringing gales, rain, and much cooler temperatures.

Cape Leeuwin has been gusting over 90 km/h this morning, peaking at 102 km/h around dawn, and around 15mm of rain has fallen over South West, South Coastal and southern parts of Great Southern. Temperatures will remain in the low-to-mid teens for Monday, about 4 degrees below previous days. As cold post-frontal air sweeps over the region, Monday night will see the freezing level drop to around 1200m, bringing the potential for a few snow flakes about the Stirling Ranges.
