WEATHER UPDATE: ANNUAL SOLAR ECLIPSE

This Friday morning there will be an annular solar eclipse, for us it will be partial. Annular eclipses are rarer than total eclipses. The moon is further away and doesn’t cover the sun completely causing a ring of fire to form around the moon which will seen in full over Cape York. There’s a good chance it will be seen inland as coastal cloud and showers may impede viewing in the east. Tomorrow will be a great day for the Hunter with increased warmth and sunshine. The shower activity will contract to the north mostly affecting the Northern Rivers and SE QLD. The coastal showers will spread back to the south along the coast during the end of the week.

The big dry for the NW, New England and Upper Hunter is to continue.

WEATHER UPDATE: EAST COAST LOW TO FORM

It’s been a fabulously dry start to the week with some extremely cold nights producing severe frosts inland being especially bad on the Tablelands. A shallow inland trough will help increase the cloud cover producing enough moisture to create widespread, light, patchy rain across the NW during Wed the 18th spreading across NE NSW and SE QLD overnight. That trough will move east clearing during Thursday, forming an east coast low on Friday. That low will deepen during Saturday producing some solid swell for our beaches. The SE winds will pick up speed and drive in more moisture producing coastal showers. It looks like this low is going to stall meaning it could take some time to clear from the Tasman. That will make sure the swell lingers well into next week but that also means so will the coastal …

GAV’S DAILY WEATHER UPDATE

What’s instore for the next 48 hours? Gav has the latest. Video follows text. “Well would you look at that, we haven’t seen that for a very long time, not very often in the past summer, in fact not very often in the last two summers. That is because of two consecutive La Nina’s years. But the La Nina has officially come to an end, as we looked at yesterday, and we should see more of those clearer skies across the country. The monsoon trough is well and truly drifting back now towards the equator, across the equator and moving back into the Northern hemisphere. Then the northern hemisphere moves into it’s wet season as our top end moves into it’s dry season. Frontal activity is starting to occur, we had our first one that was the first south west …
