Guest Manuel, I live in Tamworth, a town in north-western New South Wales, Oz.

After I wrote that last post we had more rain for a grand total of 19 mls over 24 hours yesterday, and more storms and rain are forecast tonight. Oz has cycles of drought and flood, drought and flood; we had a flood four years ago and well above average rain for a couple of years, but last year (after a promising start) was below average and this year even more so. Concern is felt because town water supplies are a bit low and we are heading into what is forecast to be a dry hot summer again, last year's summer was the hottest ever.

But what the heck, next year we might have a flood again......

& I'm about 5 hours south east of Jennie, near the world-famous Sydney Harbour, & a km or 2 west of the even more famous Bondi Beach.

We are in the middle (end?)of a big storm & in the past 15 hours have had 53mm of rain, most of it in the past 6 or so hours) a lot more than Tamworth has received. Go away, rain - head out into the dry inland areas, we don't need you here on the coast. Sydney weather radar

In the past 5 or 6 hours the Sydney & surrounding areas have had floods & blackouts etc. I'm keeping my torch close just in case, I'd hate to try to avoid all the stuff that lives on the floor in a search for light.

Temps and cloud cover bouncing all over the place. Today was sunny and about 70 f. Sunday was cloudless and mild, in the low to mid 60's. Friday was chilly and Saturday was cool. Tomorrow, rain and high of 46. Bounces a bit the rest of the week but headed for more seasonable weather in the low to mid 50's as the week goes on.

Typical erratic late fall here on the Piedmont of North Carolina. Not a wet fall, but at least not completely droughty.

For four or five days we had brilliant blue weather with high temps of around 20. Beautiful, no ice underfoot, no wind.

Then day before yesterday it clouded up and started snowing. Not a whole lot. We ended up with an official 8 inches.

Tonight it is raining into the snow. It is forecast to freeze overnight. Gonna be a slippery drive in the morning...

here in just-after-sundown-Sydney it's still bloody hot & humid. I'm close to the harbour (can't see it!) and get the same weather as at the official Sydney location Observatory Hill.

14 mins ago it was 21.4C with 87% humidity. About an hour ago we had a big storm - lotsa' rain - in a tropical fashion - down it came then away it went! 22mm fell between 6.30 & 7pm. Max temp today was 29.3C.

forecast for today (Wednesday) was min 21 & max 29 with the same tomorrow, & we are expecting more rain.

Well - it's not cold.

I live 5-6 hours drive north-west from Sandra, who lives in the heart of Sydney in the Big Smoke, and here today in the Small Smoke very welcome rain is forecast. Welcome because we are in drought, and the drought is biting hard; we are now banned from using hoses to water our gardens (or for any other purpose), although we can use buckets or watering cans between 6pm and 8pm. Elderly folk who may have trouble carrying buckets can apply for a dispensation, and will be allowed to use a hose for two hours a week. Local farmers are having a tough time, as you can imagine; many are having to sell cattle, even breeding stock which they had hoped to keep, because there is no feed for them and they can't keep buying feed with no end in sight to the drought.

So rain, which is forecast for the next few days, is eagerly awaited.

It's now morning, storms have passed and we had very good rain last night with more forecast for today - fingers crossed that actually happens! One thing that we don't want, however, are 'dry' electrical storms with lots of thunder and lightning but no (or very little) rain. Many fires are started by lightning strikes and, to quote a favourite media cliché, the bush is "tinder dry".

It's such a cliché, in fact, that many people eagerly await the first sighting of the phrase in spring each year, and newspaper columnists announce it with glee!

I've been meaning to check in here. A week ago, we set a low temp record for that date. Then, sometime Thursday night or Friday morning, we set an all time recorded low for here, at least 28 below. Where I grew up in Minnesota, that would just be a chilly night. But for southern Michigan...

After last night's snowfall, the news today includes the story that this has been Rhode Island's snowiest February on record--more snow than even in the February of the blizzard of '78. It is also the second coldest February but unlikely to break that record in the few days left. Not breaking that record is fine with me!

Not much choice, when it comes to weather, unless a guy flys away:)

Yesterday's rain did not involve snow- so, no "heart attack" slush to shovel or fluck-up the blower's innards. Ideas in the link may help a snowblower ability to blow slushy snow?

The city has had a record 31 straight days above 26℃ (and counting), smashing the previous record of 19 days in a row set in 2014. Nights have also been unusually warm, with only two nights in February dropping below 19℃ (equalling the record set in 2003 and 1983).

We are allegedly heading for a change of season ...

And dry, so dry. Since late January we have had about eight (8) drops of rain. They fell a couple of evenings ago, I stood outside and counted them. Gardens are struggling, people are stressed.

This coming week is supposed to be a little cooler, but after Tuesday we won't be here. We'll be in Canberra for the Aussie National Folk Festival where it will be even cooler again! Yay and double yay! Coolth, wonderful coolth!
