Synoptic and Rainfall Chart prediction for Friday 24th January 2014

Finally great news for southeast and eastern NSW. A rain event prognosis is set to occur across southern and eastern NSW with some substantial widespread falls during Friday. A low pressure system will develop and deepen near Sydney or Wollongong. Widespread falls of up to 20 to 40mm and some locally higher falls are anticipated giving farmers in the region a well earned break! The wet season is also under way up in the Top End and central Australia providing some relief in the interior. Most of Australia is receiving well below their normal rainfall and with the longitivtiy of the heat wave has made things critical for some regions. Some areas are also under water restrictions. It is not a common occurrence for virtually the whole of Australia to be under an extensive dry patter for so long such as this and during the wet season. The 1982 - 1983 drought did produce extensive dry conditions with occasional local breaks.

    Latest models seem to indicate that we will not get much rain here in Sydney! Southeastern NSW and near the Victorian border, there still is the chance of substantial rainfall!

    Thanks Halden – however, there was a severe thunderstorm warning for wind in southern Sydney suburbs! Dave Croan was on his way home and spotted lightning. Then the warning came out!

    Well since storm chasing began, this is bad. 1982 was also bad summer season due to the drought! 1996 had a few significant storms but it also was fairly ordinary.
