And it's the season that I think of as
The Moths' Last Gasp.
They are clustering around doorways of an evening,
trying to get not only to light but to warmer air,
as the evenings get closer and closer to freezing.

on 25 Sept JennieG posted - Official storm season starts next week, on 1st October - and right on schedule, the first rainstorm of the season is forecast for Thursday/Friday.

Today (Thursday evening) the Bureau of Meteorology posted ... the storm season was "really kicking off" and urged residents to check the BOM's website for the latest weather warnings ... after a tornado ripped through NSW's Central West on Thursday afternoon, damaging properties and leaving a 30km trail of destruction.

Fortunately it was 400km from The Small Smoke where Jennie lives, & about 200 km from The Big Smoke where I live. Tomorrow the Small Smoke forecast is for Showers & Possible storm while The Big Smoke can expect a Shower or two & Possible storm.

Sandra, we know the area where the tornado happened - it touched down at Peel, a tiny village outside Bathurst, that we have driven through on our way to/from Canberra. (we a choice of several routes we can take, that one is my favourite) It's not far from Wattle Flat/Sofala, the site of gold rushes in the 1800s.

There was also a tornado closer to home, in the Narrabri area a couple of hours west.

Rain is forecast for today and tomorrow. So far - 11 a.m. - it is warm and sunny. That will not last.

I went out today in the sunshine, spent a lovely day with a friend, we ate lunch in her backyard. The sky darkened as I was travelling home & I was several steps from my door, after battling strong winds as my street is on the top of a hill with 2 skyscraper apartment blocks on the corner!, when the FIRST few drops touched me & by the time I'd climbed up the stairs, it was a downpour, but I was still dry!!!

Hurricane season here runs June 1 until November 30. The one that impacts many of us more is Tornado season, March 1 through June 30 and we here in North Texas live in Tornado Alley (scroll down to see the map). That super cold event we had in Texas earlier this year was in February (exacerbated by our broken power grid).

Winters here aren't warm like down at the coast or in Southern Arizona or California, and sometimes we feel the weather come straight through from Saskatchewan. I ended up here for a job, I wasn't attracted by the climate.

Hey ho, caters. I lost only one tree this hurricane season thus far. It was a twenty five foot pear tree. I still haven’t hauled it all off since I am busy with caring for dad who is now 98. I’ve spent eight years with him and five before that with mother caring for her with dad’s help. Hospice is now helping me but Sky King is still a brave B24 bomber pilot Anyway hurricane season isn’t over but it has been relatively merciful in north Florida. It was almost ninety today I think, but it’s in the sixties now at night.
Love, harpgirl

Wet in Stratford, Ontario, too. I can feel moss growing on my north side, and mushrooms between my toes.

This summer was the wettest anyone around here can remember, and it produced (among other things) a stunning proliferation of mosses, lichens and fungi in gardens and parks. When I stroll around the neighbourhood, I check other people's lawns to see who has more toadstools per square metre than I do -- not many!

We're into our twelfth day in a row of gentle sunshine, light winds and mid-sixties temperatures. It's lovely. Very unusual for October. Cornwall may well have had the best of it. I'm sitting in the sun with my shirt off (down, girls...). I think today could be the last of it this year. You never know!

We can call it an Indian summer, but that's been more of an American thing until quite recently. A pleasant spell of weather starting tomorrow would be a St Luke's summer (the 18th is his feast day), so the current spell is too early for that. Similarly, a nice spell in mid-November would be a St Martin's summer. Even if we get that, the shirts will be staying on.

It looks bad out there.
The picture window in front of me shows the storm system moving in:
the sky is going that odd quality it gets with incoming storms,
part obscuring clouds, part glaring if indirect daylight.
A wind is making the tree branches uneasy.

The storm is concentrated on the coast in this area;
my location is well inland, but the storm will graze us anyway,
while the coast has warnings of flash flooding.

October has been incredibly mild this year. In my garden the average maximum has been well in excess of 16C ( let's say 62F), way above average. We've had just three days that dipped below average but not by much. Nothing approaching a frost and my garden would still be looking lovely but for the somewhat windy conditions in the last few days. It's been a bit wet for a day or two, however...

Space weather is cold with hot spots from visible matter to black holes.
But does dark matter even have a temperature?
Temperature is a human construct and can be described in very different ways. As you can see, dark matter is like branchs that visible matter attaches itself to like leaves. I see dark matter more like a mold's mycellium. You can say I see a universe that is old and moldy. :^/

I woke up this morning to a lot of snow out there. The wind was almost howling and the snow was heavy. We ended up with just five or six inches but it was beautiful.

This whole next week they're forecasting low temperatures and more snow. By the end of the week our ground should be well frozen. I hope so.

Southeastern Alaska doesn't get nearly as much wintry weather as the rest of Alaska- our all time low temperature at -22F (our highest was 90 degrees), because, although we are fairly far north, we are right on the coast. which tends to keep us pretty stable.

For those who don't know, Juneau, the capital of Alaska is about 45 miles long- and narrow. Very narrow. We follow the coastline. I like to tell people that we have about 200 miles of paved roads, if you include driveways.

Flooded is what it is right now.

The Peel River which flows through town is flooded, two of the three bridges which cross it are closed. This makes for a certain amount of traffic congestion, as you can imagine.

We have had a crap ton of rain. Or a shit load, if you prefer.

We are high and dry here on the hill.

Ebbie lives in the area known as Southeast Alaska. I would call that Alaska's banana belt but I usually refer to Homer and Seward that way.

Anchorage is in the area known as Southcentral Alaska. We are substantially north of the panhandle. We are slightly further north than European cities such as Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, (but not Reykjavik).

Temperatures are typically moderate for the latitude. Right now they are in the single digits (4 deg Fahr or -15 deg Celsius). While this is not extreme for our location, it is enough to keep many folks inside their comfy houses. I've been dog walking every day and what is most noticeable over the bare temperature is the accompanying breeze. A slight steady breeze can make you 'feel' ten degrees colder than the simple degree figure.

The dog we're walking is an 8 month old Labradoodle, no fat on her, but she seems to be quite able to gambol frolic, fight and fetch in any temperature we've walked her in so far. There are dogs who do not like snow and cold, but Labs don't seem to be among 'em.

When the temps are low, snow adhesion is usually pretty good. If you hear a crunch under foot, chances are you won't be slipping. But, crossing or walking in streets where cars have compressed the frozen water to a sheen can be slick no matter what temperature. The good side of this is that thin layers of snow and ice can evaporate (the proper term is sublimate) and in a few days you've got asphalt under foot.

We are supposed to be in the freezer for another week and then the temperature might go up by 10 degrees F (5 deg C). It will make a difference. Last year we had a sudden meltdown and rain in December and that was far worse than the cold.

Coolish and threatening rain, nothing dramatic. But my native Pacific Northwest is due for another "atmospheric river" to dump an awful lot of water in a hurry—10 to 20 inches in some areas.

In the 1960s we travelled through BC into the mountains and across to Alberta to visit family; camping along the way. I remember the stop in Hope, BC, where there was an interpretive display about a relatively recent landslide that had killed a number of people. It happens every so often up there, it happened earlier this year. Like the slide in the Stillaguamish River valley at Oso, Washington, a few years ago, this kind of rain makes living in mountainous areas where people sometimes scratch roads on the terrain and mine for minerals (up there - gold, silver, copper in particular), dig gravel, or log timber - all of these activities contributed to the danger that water exacerbates.

There is an illustration in the Washington Post article about it.
