WEATHER: SWEET NOVEMBER RAIN

The current rain event has delivered the goods to the North West. Some large figures were accumulated overnight, adding to what has been a slow build up. A line that stretches from Walgett to Wee Waa, up to Moree and across to Inverell, received 50 to 80mm. Middle Creek outside of Inverell topped the list with and impressive 112mm. This is a game changer for the season across the region and there may be more inland rain on the way in the weeks to follow. Along the coast, the rain band cleared today but getting left behind will be a stalled trough. This area of instability will help trigger storms along the northern New South Wales ranges into south west Queensland tomorrow. A weak southerly will freshen things up for the Central Coast and Newcastle on Saturday.

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: 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 …
