WEATHER: SPECTACULAR SPRING

Cool, dry, south-westerly winds moved across the region today, making for perfect blues skies overhead. Afternoon cloud increased, building to some isolated storm activity in south east Queensland and north east New South Wales. A nice, big storm rolled over Coolangatta. Tomorrow will be more of the same without the storm development.

WEATHER: ECL TO MOVE AWAY QUICKLY

A fast moving low has been making it’s way across NSW today. An early morning line of storms cleared and this afternoon the core of the system fired up patchy rain periods across the region with more storms across the NW Plains. Tonight the centre of the low will move offshore. Gale force winds and some heavy down pours will hit the Central Coast, Newcastle to Port Macquarie. Large, dangerous seas and swell will develop. Condition will ease quickly on Saturday as the low gets driven away from the coast. Some isolated, coastal, shower activity will linger over the weekend, more so on Sunday.

WEATHER: SPRING WIND AND RAIN ON THE WAY

After a perfect start to spring, the cloud has been rolling in today and rain is on the way. A well-organised low is moving quickly across the south east. Winds will pick up speed and become strong to gale force, with the stronger winds felt on the Central Coast and Hunter overnight on Thursday. Rain totals won’t be big as the system is moving too quickly. Storm cells will also be a feature. The low will move into the Tasman and generate more swell as it moves offshore. Some isolated coastal showers will linger into the weekend.

WEATHER: MORE RAIN IN THE NORTH

The intense east coast low that has wreaked havoc across south east NSW is helping to draw moisture across central Australia. The rain band will produce follow up falls across the North West, north east NSW and south east QLD, with some storms likely for the Gold Coast. As the low pulls away form the south coast, a few showers will spray the Greater Hunter. Surfers can expect more great waves, as the swell moves further north, being glassed off by the offshore winds.

WEATHER WITH GAV: RAIN HIT THE RIGHT AREAS

Some excellent rain totals were accumulated across the North West with a widespread 30mm.¬†Tingha and Terry Hie Hie hit 60mm. North of the Gwyder highway didn’t receive much but the rain will return there later in the week filling in the gaps. Other areas to fair well include the Upper Hunter from Scone to Wingen and Murrurundi receiving 50 to 60mm also. An east coast low will form with all the wild weather set to hit to the NSW South East coast. Things will fine up for tomorrow locally with another North West rain belt set to reach northern NSW and southern QLD from Wednesday.

WEATHER: INLAND RAIN STILL ON TRACK FOR NEXT WEEK

Conditions are set to get very warm over the next few days, thanks to building north westerly winds drawing warm air from central Australia across the region. Over the weekend we’ll see some pre-frontal shower activity ahead of next week’s rain event. South east Queensland and north east New South Wales will have a consistent run of patchy showers from here on in leading up to the rain band as well. From Monday the rain will begin to fall across parts of the North West, building to peak on Monday. Some very nice totals are expected at this point. The charts will shift around a little leading up to the event, but all the ingredients are there to deliver rain to areas that need it most. I’ll check in again tomorrow to make sure things remain on track and start …

WEATHER: INLAND RAIN ON THE HORIZON

It has been very a long time in between drinks for the North West. Early next week we may finally see some rain in that area. I’ll be checking in with this developing system each day to make sure it remains on track. Until then, a few isolated coastal showers will be about for the north coast. Elsewhere, it will be dry inland with morning frosts and fog patches burning off into mostly fine days.

WEATHER: FRESHENING SOUTHERLY

Inland is in for a fine and very comfortable weekend. Along the coast, a moderate southerly is going to kick in during Saturday and will push in a few isolated showers from Gosford to Port Stephens. There will also be an isolated shower or two further north during the mid to late afternoon. The winds will drop off on Sunday, and for most, it will be a fine weekend.

WEATHER: FRIENDLY CONDITIONS LOCALLY BUT NOT OVERSEAS

The cold nights and frosty mornings are going to continue, but the days will become milder as a large high moves across the region. South west to south east winds will ease across the weekend. The El Nino is already having a profound affect on global weather. The first super Typhoon Souldelor intensified, with core winds peaking at 360km/h. The storm is weakening, but will impact Taiwan heavily in the coming days, before moving on to East China. It will dump huge amounts of rain, causing extensive flooding and damage in both countries.

WEATHER: A VERY ICY MORNING

It was an incredibly cold start to the day. There were a few small records broken, but it was more to do with the wind chill factor that made it feel so cold. We have more very cold nights on the way. It’s going to remain fairly windy, so the wind chill factor will make sure it feels icy. Most of the days will be fine and partly cloudy, but lengthy sunny breaks will help a little. Still cold during the day, warming a little over the weekend.
