access_low_29th_january_2013Looks like the latest model upadte from the Bureau Access Model has now got extensive rainfall 28th to 29th January even as far down as Sydney! Well over 100mm of rainfall in the region now predicted.



  • For those who are not familiar with the difference between an ex-tropical cyclone / tropical low and an east coast or polar low, the temperatures in the mid-levels are relatively warm. The map here shows temperatures in northern NSW fairly warm 0 to -2C compared to the approaching polar low (upper trough extension of the low) with temperatures of -14C and obviously colder approaching Victoria. For the position of the low, just refer to the wind barbs circulating the centre of the low in each case!
