WEATHER: A LITTLE STORM ACTION

taree_weather_web

A line of storms flared up this afternoon, stretching from the Upper Hunter along the ranges to New England and the border. They moved over the slopes and reached parts of the coast. We’re expecting more shower and storm development tomorrow, particularly around the ranges. Conditions will clear to kick start the weekend. A change is on the way for Sunday which will trigger more wet weather to close the weekend in the Hunter before spreading north. Read More »

WEATHER: A LITTLE INLAND RAIN IS ON THE WAY

Weather Borders ranges

The inland areas of the North West are still very dry and the major catchments are very low, so rain of any kind is welcome out west and there is some on the way. Afternoon showers and storms are going to become a feature across the region in the coming days. That’s thanks to a stalled inland trough that is feeding off very consistent onshore winds, which have been creating partly cloudy skies and scattered showers along the coast over the next few days. Rain totals won’t be big and there’ll be no impact on the major catchments, but it will help with current crops in the ground. Read More »

WEATHER: STILL VERY DRY INLAND

NANDEWAR RANGEweather

The weekend deluge has helped ease conditions across the Clarence Valley and around Casino in the Northern Rivers after a prolonged dry spell. The excessive rain in south east Queensland may trigger a Ross River outbreak with mosquito numbers expected to swell, but the inland areas of the North West remain very dry. They received some good rain at the beginning of the year, which helped increase top soil moisture, but sub soil remained dry. There is a little rain on the way for the North West for the second half of the week. The coast will see more showers and high humidity levels thanks to the consistent onshore winds. Read More »

WEATHER: TROPICAL LIKE CONDITIONS FOR THE COAST.

WEATHER_CHAT_GAV_WEB

The remnants of Cyclone Marcia my be gone but she left behind a lot of moisture both on the ground and in the atmosphere. The onshore winds are making sure that the conditions remain very humid on the eastern side of the Divide and across the Hunter. The high moisture levels are making for partly cloud days with patchy shower development across the beach suburbs to the eastern foothills. It will remain dry inland across the NW. Storm development is also expected across the Hunter tomorrow afternoon. Read More »

CYCLONE DOUBLE ACT MAKES HISTORY

RAIN_RADAR

Never before have two high category cyclones come ashore at almost the same time in Australia. Cyclone Marcia crossed the coast as Category 5 storm, Lam as a Category 4 cyclone. Heavy rain will continue overnight across SE QLD and NE NSW causing flooding. Strong winds, large swell and big tidal swings will cause more problems over the next 48 hours. Another is now expected to form in the Tasman across the weekend generating more swell. Only light rain periods are expected in the NW and across the Hunter. Read More »

WEATHER: MARCIA, MARCIA, MARCIA!

cyclone-marcia

Cyclone Marcia is closing in on the Queensland coast tonight, and is expected to cross between Rockhampton and Mackay. There is an associated trough stretching south and this is expected to cause all the problems for south east Queensland and north east New South Wales. The rain will start to increase across these regions from tonight and the next two days will see heavy down pours increase to the point where flooding is likely. Winds are continuing to build and so the swell combining with the biggest tides of the year to date. Coastal inundation and erosion is also expected. Along that trough another low is expected to form in the Tasman which will generate increased swell over the weekend. Read More »

WEATHER: TROPICAL STORMS ARE COMING ASHORE

WEATHER_CHAT_GAV_WEB

Cyclone Lam (pronounced ‘Larm’)  is hammering Arnhem Land at the moment skirting the coastline as a Category 3 storm dumping hundreds of millimetres of rain. Lam may reach Cat 4 before completely crossing the coast over the Top End of the Territory. The Tropical Low in the Coral Sea is now moving towards the QLD coast, still building in strength and likely to become a Category 1 cyclone before crossing QLDs coast somewhere between Gladestone and Harvey Bay. The big feature of this storm is the large amount of moisture it will bring with it causing heavy flooding rain across the SE corner of QLD. The low may bounce back out to sea reaching the Tasman and if so may re strengthen into an east coast low. SE QLD and NE NSW are under threat of strong winds and heavy ... Read More »

WEATHER: CYCLONE LAM IS GROWING

gav

The monsoon trough that sits over northern Australia has produced a cyclone. Cyclone Lam pronounced Larm is growing quickly in the Gulf and likely to become a category 4 storm by tomorrow. Another low is now deepening in the Coral Sea and may also become a cyclone. It is moving east at the moment but expected to turn to the south tomorrow and it may move towards SE QLD bringing with it flooding rain that will spill across the border into NE NSW by Friday. There are a couple of possibilities. The first is that the intense system will unleash all its energy on SE QLD before dying. The second scenario is that the system will move into the Tasman feeding off the warm ocean currents and re-strengthen into a powerful east coast low generating a huge swell for the ... Read More »

WEATHER: CYCLONE MAY COME DOWN THE COAST

WEATHER_CHAT_GAV_WEB

There are numerous lows forming along the monsoon trough at the moment, one of them may become a concern to us later in the week. The low in the Coral Sea may head south affecting the south east Queensland coast around Thursday and the northern New South Wales coast by the weekend. These systems have an unpredictable nature so it is a system we have to watch closely. If the low heads south, it will bring with it a large amount of rain that would have the potential to cause flooding. Sea surface temperatures are very warm at the moment and that will help maintain the strength of the storm if it does head south. I’ll check the development of this system every day, so stay tuned, we may have to prepare for this one in the coming days. Read More »

WEATHER: COASTAL SHOWERS EASING

The northern New South Wales coast and south east Queensland has had a consistent run of showers, with some heavy localised falls. This shower activity is going to ease across the weekend. The onshore winds will still be with us, making for more humid days and nights. The Hunter has seen a few small showers and the occasional storm. It should be predominantly fine across the region this weekend, with the chance of shower development on the small side. Still warm and dry inland across the North West and Plains. A moderate swell for surfers – southern corners in the north and northern corners in the south the tip. Moderate seas and swell for boating. Read More »
