I pity you poor Sydneysiders. I grew up in Steak & Kidney and the summer humidity was one of the things I was happiest to leave behind when we moved to the Blue Mountains. It's been hot and humid here today, but nothing like what it must have been like in Sydney. If you're near the coast or the harbour you are relatively lucky too. Imagine what it was like in Penrith today.

John O'Lennaine, a pack of Aussies were here this week- they're touring but as long they were here they played soccer (football) in a game against our High School team. I didn't get to talk with them but I saw a number of them in McDonald's yesterday. They were dressed pretty warmly. Must be a shock from the weather at home.

Our temps had been in the upper 30s the last while but it's gotten nippy the last couple of days. Icy pavements today. The wind has picked up this evening so it will probably bring in new weather soon. At this dark time of the year I'd like some snow.

It's nearly 5.30 on a nasty hot humid Sunday in Sydney.

The latest temperature listed at Sydney Observatory Hill was 44.2 Celcius at 4.24pm. I'm about 1km from this site which is next to the Harbour Bridge.

I've been hiding from the weather all day behind dark curtains with the fan whirring away, tho I can still feel the heat & humidity. In an hour or so I'll open the blinds when the heat & glare subside, & I might go for a walk after 8pm as I did last night.

.........................
METROPOLITAN FORECAST
Issued at 3:39pm on Sunday the 1st of January 2006

For the remainder of Sunday   

Fire Weather Warning for extreme fire danger.
The NSW Minister for Emergency Services has totally banned the
lighting of fires until midnight Sunday.
Very hot. Dry and mostly sunny. Some cloud late in the day.
Freshening northwest winds before a strong, squally southerly change
late evening.

Southerly changes usually are cool, so a walk seems a Good Idea.

Early morning sky was crimson and the ocean's sooty water in places was painted with its colors. Now an hour later there are bright skies and it's breezy and crisp and cold. With my binocs I see the town thermometer seven blocks away and it says it's 26F out there.

When this cold snap breaks we have snow forecast but I don't know when that is supposed to be.

We've had snow on the ground a few times- had a foot of it up here on the hill the other day - but it's all gone. Except on the mountains, of course.

Funny you should ask - right now there is lightning flashing and thunder booming around the house and it is pouring with rain. We didn't get any severe thunderstorm warning tho, like we normally do. The radar shows it being very isolated, so I think it will be gone soon. If it gets any worse I might turn the computer off for a while.

We've had a lot of weather like that lately, and afternoon thunderstorms have been predicted for the next few days. It's exciting anyway, and my garden is very happy with all the rain!

Well yesterday as I sat actually looking at a local internet weather forecast showing cold but sunny and no sign of precipitation, it started to snow, and snowed quite heavily for the next couple of hours. It's freezing now, and white everywhere, but the sky is a clear, early morning blue and it's all rather pretty. Better if I could stay in here and not go out in it though!

today it was warm & sunny, maybe 18C!!

I could have left my jacket at home when I went grocery shopping at 2pm, & it's still pleasant now (12.47, time to get to bed soonish) but I am wearing a medium weight tracksuit & will be sleeping under a 80% down quilt as it does get a bit nippy in the wee hours. I haven't heard Monday's forecast yet.

Winter in my part of Sydney (a few hundred metres from the CDB & Sydney Harbour) is always relatively mild. I don't use a heater, tho JennyO & freda certainly do cos they live a few kilometres from the coast, & I keep my windows permanently locked open so I can get fresh air.

My suburb is full of tourists from colder climates who wear summer clothes here as they think our winter is really summer.

Here in the California Foothills, it has been a cool summer, with much more rain than we usually get. It got up to 100 degrees the last day or two, but won't stay up there for very long. My wife and I took a hike today to Donner Peak, up at the summit of the Sierra off Interstate 80. Much of the trail was covered with water from melting snow, but we kept our feet dry by walking on rocks.

But we didn't make it to Donner Peak. The snow was too deep, so we found our way to a rocky crag with a beautiful view of Donner Lake. The wildflowers were spectacular. Unfortunately, so were the mosquitos.
Beautiful hike, though.

I think she's just a bit like me - gets hooked into Mudcat and stays up late, then can't get to sleep. We've both been known to haunt the chatroom in the not-so wee small hours!

It's probably worse for her because she knows she has to get up early, whereas I don't have to be up so early. I know from experience that sometimes when you have a deadline and you can see the hours disappearing and you know that if you don't get to sleep soon, you won't have had enough sleep, and you TRY so hard that it actually keeps you awake.

By the way, her most recent post on this thread, at 10.50am would have been 12.50am here - not really all that late - for us anyway :-)

I hope Freda is sound asleep and never sees this. Poor dear.

Gnu, I don't know what you think she was going through - she lives in Sydney, same as me. We live about 7 km apart. Our part of Sydney did get some of the highest rainfall - the suburbs further west didn't get as much. We both had the same conditions to contend with yesterday, except that she uses public transport, I drive - more risky for drivers, but probably drier.

Anyway, I've seen worse here. It was up in northern NSW that got it worse. Three people dead I believe.

Today as promised, it was sunny. I had to go out and try to repair the little home made greenhouse that we made a few weeks ago. Some tomato plants were blown over by the wind, and a couple of plant pots were tipped right over, but a tray of capsicum seeds that have just germinated were still okay.

And after all that, they are saying that the rainfall has hardly made any difference to the water level in our catchment dams. They say it would have to rain heavily and continuously for a week to be useful. We are still officially in a drought - that's Australia for you :-1

Rain Country
Ebbie 1999

In the Winter it's raining. The clouds are dark and low.
(It's the normal condition- everybody wants it so
With snow-covered mountains and the valleys wet below)
In Southeast Alaska, we have more rain than snow.

In Spring the clouds are heavy with impending change
Fog and hail, brief sun and wind- we go all the range
There is no predicting but always - or in the main-
In Southeast Alaska, in Spring there is rain.

Ah, but in the summer the misty air's serene,
Clothes damp-dry on the line, the grass is cool and green,
But hang your coat by the fire, lest you go out again
In Southeast Alaska, Summer brings rain.

In Autumn the storms return, dark clouds are in the sky.
Wind strips leaves from all the trees and sends them flying high.
Waters rush, galoshes slosh. A familiar refrain:
In Southeast Alaska, it's raining. Again.

We're a special kind of people who live here, don't you know-
We've made our peace with weather (with rain, not with snow)
So we take pride in saying, though it may cause some pain:
In Southeast Alaska, bring on the rain.
This is Southeast Alaska- BRING ON THE RAIN.

When you are geographically located this far north with mountainous terrain and practically surrounded by ocean you get a lot of rain (upwards of 90 inches a year, PLUS 105 inches of snow.) Winter can arrive most any time. I've seen snow fall on the mountain tops in July, finishing up the old year and new snow fall in September.

On the other hand I've seen the Northern Lights in every month but June and July (the sky is just too light in those months).

Another silvery day here in Juneau, Alaska. (Silvery is different from grey- the sun is on just the other side of the clouds, lending a silvery glow) The temperature, the last few days, has been around 60F, a little cooler than typical. Before this, we had several days of upper 70s-- very hot for this part of the world.

Everything - the grass, the bushes, the mountains - is green, the fireweed is brilliant and about 2/3 of the way finished ("Fireweed half done = Summer half gone"), the mountain ash berries are in the dull-brown wispy stage before they burst into heaps of brightness, the tops of the maple trees give hints of fall color (as seen from my window), autumn morning fogs (most common in August) force our many cruiseships to moan their way into our harbor. We may have an early fall.

Everything has been early this year- We had a very short spring. We seemed to jump from winter almost directly into summer.

Yes, I was thinking about the contrast as I was inching my car through the wild rain and wind today. The words of Dorothea Mackellar in her well known poem about Australia - "My Country" - came to mind. She certainly had it right:

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me!

after four years of drought, our dams are nearly empty and the Premier of our state is wondering how to continue to provuide drinking water to us sydneysiders. so it finally starts to rain.   and rain. and rain. and rain. It is coming down in troughloads outside as I write, pouring off the gutters and drenching the street. there are floods further north and a gale warning has been issued. The wind is coming up now - its getting wilder and wilder - imagine a huge drenching downpour, and then triple it!

this is typical in this part of australia - its all or nothing - long harsh months and years of unremitting heat and drought, and then a maniacal downpour leading to flooding, trees coming down, cars being tossed along flooded road (two deaths already)...

what's the weather like where you are?
