Weather models work in a couple of ways – short term models look at current conditions and then project what will likely happen over the next couple of weeks, while longer term climate models are used to develop seasonal forecasts. These models forecast larger scale ocean and atmospheric conditions and have improved markedly over the […]
As expected all the major climate drivers are pointing towards wetter times…and look at what the models are predicting….
We’ve seen devastating fires over the last few months – so a chance to look at the bigger picture to help understand why it is happening.
We’ve got a fairly hot day coming up today, with a peak in the heat tomorrow (Saturday). We’ll then see a change come through that will cool it down a little, before the heat returns later next week. You can see the ups and downs in the temperatures in this animation of the next 9 […]
After recent rains we’ve finally got a fantastic local fire hotspots map to look at: It doesn’t mean the fires are completely out, but it does mean that they are sitting there very quietly at the moment, and the Andersons Fire at least is under control. We’ve got some dry and warm weather coming up […]
Some blessed rain over the last couple of days, particularly in the valleys and over the Andersons Fire. You can see the significant totals that fell across NE NSW in the latest 7 day map from the BoM: Easily enough rain to have a significant impact across many firegrounds across NE NSW, which is fantastic […]
Hot tomorrow before another change moves through – with the potential for more showers….before it heats up again.
Hot weekend coming up with fire risk increasing…
Some good rain over the last week – in fact some of the highest totals seen across NSW: …but all that is now on the change with some hot weather (in fact for inland areas potentially record breaking heat) getting going and then lasting for some time. The real heat will stick just west of […]
Showers to start, then temperatures on the rise…
