WEATHER: THE TROPICS HAVE COME OUR WAY

STORM1

PHOTO: Thanks to Bec Van G. for this great snap, taken this afternoon at North Arm Cove. The stalled trough has been consistently firing up storms across the region for almost a week now and rain totals are starting to add up for some of the drought stricken areas. Tamworth 100mm. Merriwa, Woolbrook and Cessnock 90mm. Mungindi 70mm. Barraba 50mm. Along the coast it has been very patchy with over 200mm coming down on Dorrigo over the past week, while the drought stricken Mid North Coast has generally received less than 30mm. There is still more to come though. We’ll see the storm activity ease over the next couple of days, remaining focused over the northern ranges. On Thursday we are set to have another widespread burst with the potential to pick up more solid totals. The whole weather trend ... Read More »

WEATHER: RAIN READY TO RAMP UP

weatherrain

Almost all of New South Wales, apart from the far north east, received some rain over the past 24 hours. The heaviest falls were over Sydney from the damaging storms. Cessnock, Pokolbin and Maitland fared okay with 30-millimetres, but totals were mostly small elsewhere, less than 10-millimetres. The rain event is ready to ramp up a gear over the next 24 hours and better rain is expected across the very dry North West. Saturday is also looking good for the broadcast region, before the rain eases off during Sunday. From next Monday, the rain is expected to ramp back up again, with decent follow-up falls continuing into the middle of next week. Read More »

WEATHER: BEST RAIN IN MONTHS

taree_weather_web

The best looking rain system we’ve seen in months will begin to affect the region from tomorrow. Storms have been a regular feature across the northern ranges but it has been far more active across southern New South Wales. This week could be the stormiest for the state during December in a decade. A trough is getting ready to stall over northern New South Wales and eventually form into a cut-off low which is poised to draw south tropical moisture over the next week, possibly 10 days. This period of rain, on and off, has the potential to cause flooding. The relief is very much needed though, after the hottest Spring on record for Australia breaking the record that was set only a year ago. (NO VISION) Read More »

WEATHER: GETTING HOTTER AND STORMIER

Heat is increasing and so to the storm development. Afternoon storms over the Great Dividing Range are now consistently firing up and these isolated cells are rolling off the eastern slopes and across parts of the western slopes, reaching some populated areas. This activity, along with the hot northerly winds, will continue, coming to a crescendo at the end of the week with a widespread rain-belt moving through. There is the chance to pick up follow-up rain early next week from another system. Read More »

WEATHER: HEATING UP FOR THE WEEKEND

Weather Swansea Glen McIntosh

There will be increased sunshine for the coast after a cloudy week with patchy down pours from isolated showers and storms that didn’t penetrate west of the Divide. The good news is things may change next week for the heavily drought affected areas of the North West and Upper Hunter. We’ll watch this new system develop across the weekend and by the middle to end part of next week we should see some rain reach the region. If the projections remain on track, we could receive the best rain months. Let’s hope it comes off as it is desperately needed heading into Summer. Read More »

WEATHER: A FINE WEEKEND AHEAD

weatherBonnyHils

We’ve seen plenty of cloud this week with higher humidity levels and some localised heavy falls coming down across north east New South Wales. Over the next couple of days, including the weekend, things are going to become warmer with increased sunshine. Rain is desperately needed, as this week’s system didn’t deliver the goods to the majority of the region. Next week there is a more promising system brewing, which may deliver the best rain in months. Read More »

WEATHER: MUCH COOLER

weathercrescenthead

Cooler conditions have now spread across the entire region, with plenty of cloud currently keeping the sun at bay. The cloud cover will break up further for the Greater Hunter, and again, there is the chance of seeing storms develop across the Upper Hunter. There is still the possibility of receiving some rain across the North West with patchy showers and storm develop on the cards. Falls will be on the light side and will be localised. The region with the best chance of seeing more wet weather again is the Northern Ranges, Rivers and south east Queensland. The stalled trough will begin to clear making for a fine weekend.

WEATHER: MUCH NEEDED RAIN ON THE WAY

KAILA-DARCY-WEATHER

PHOTO: Thanks to Kaila Darcy for this amazing snap of last night’s storm in Newcastle. Storms have been a real feature over the last couple of days and there are more to come. A passing front and associated trough is set to trigger widespread rain and storms that should see most of the region receive some much needed wet weather. That approaching system helped fire up more storms across the Hunter and North West today. Tomorrow the cloud will increase and temperatures will finally drop after record breaking November heat. The slow moving system will contract to north east New South Wales during tomorrow, before arriving at the Gold Coast on Wednesday. Read More »

WEATHER UPDATE: HOT HOT HOT

weather Snapper Rocks Phill Mobbs

There is a bit of relief on the way for coastal areas, stretching from Gosford to Coffs Harbour in the form of a southerly change pushing through overnight. This won’t be strong enough to fully clear the heat so on Sunday the dreaded north westerly winds will kick in even harder and the mercury will rise further. High 30s and low 40s are expected across the Greater Hunter and North West. Mid to high 30s along the coast, with a strong seabreeze drawing in. The heat will continue on Monday before we start to see some rain develop on Tuesday and Wednesday. Read More »

WEATHER UPDATE: HEATWAVE NUMBER TWO

PHOTO: Newcastle locals enjoying the newly-renovated Merewether Baths today. Another heatwave is ready to steam roll the region in the coming days. Tomorrow will be very hot with cloud increasing and widespread storm development as a trough passes over. This will trigger a weak change that will only affect Gosford and Newcastle on Saturday, with onshore winds keeping temperatures down on the coast. Inland will still be hot. On Sunday things will get very nasty with many areas headed into the high 30s and low 40s. Read More »
