    In a historical context it appears to be the worst flooding along the mid north coast of New South Wales since the 1960s.  That was one of the biggest floods recorded along that stretch of the coastline. In Sydney it is approaching the major flood event of 1990.  It is going to get worse in Sydney over the next day or two as they are forced to release water from the engorged Warragamba Dam in the city's west.

    Part 3  End. Launceston, Tasmania. That feeling of witnessing snow for the very first time in your home environment.   

    Hi Kiwi...no not really! The suburbs on the river front and the city centre had to contend with some icy patches only, which looked like light frost. Once the sun broke thru a couple of hours after su

    What a pretty chart. Top End monsoon - late as it was - feeds into east coast trough. Bushfires will be heavily subdued.

    What's actually causing this rain in Australia?

    Just took a brief look at the synoptics over the Tasman, and all I see is a relatively innocent looking trough over the NSW.

    A severe warning is extended to the whole New South Wales coast, in the worst flooding in decades.

    Quite incredible extreme weather for eastern Australia. And back 18 months - 12 months the same areas were hit by drought then bushfires in the hottest/driest year on record for the country. Climate Crisis.

    BoM explained that there was a tropical low over northern WA, the trough near eastern Oz then warm tropical air pulled down from the north and everything was stuck due to a blocking high over Tasman Sea (Tasmania to NZ) After nearly a week of heavy rain and terrible flooding with inland areas looking like a large lake, a coastal low developed Monday and that has brought another 100-200mm of rain to S.QLD, NSW including Gt. Sydney and VIC and Tasmania now being warned of Heavy Rain and stormy conditions as the low finally pulls away from QLD/NSW midweek.  More

    Australia - New South Wales and southern Queensland have seen torrential rain, over 900mm this week. Disasterous flooding and yet more rain with damaging winds up until midweek.

    With all bush fires I wonder if erosion might be more than otherwise due to lack of binding together by plant growth.

    There is No Climate Crisis in Australia. ...The BOM have hidden all the data  from the early 1920s to 1930s . Australia's Climatology is Drought ..Flood etc just like California . Overpopulation is the real threat ..?But  main stream media climate change,  global warming , greenhouse effect and the like.. have drummed this into people's head to be right ..?

    Let's go some where else. .....?

    I snapped the image from Meteye on Thursday afternoon. It shows the low readings across New South Wales which has been at the center of the first decent cold outbreak of the winter. Widespread snow settled across towns as low as 800m in New South Wales.  Such a snow event happens once every second winter or so, but some places would have fared better, especially for snow depth. Sydney's maximum of 10.3c ( 7 below average ) was the coldest June day since 1899 - and second coldest June day in 163 years of records but it may exceed that before 9am Friday.

    Just confirming it never got higher than 10.3c in Sydney on Thursday ( at the long-running Observation Hill site, near the harbor )-- making it indeed the second coldest June day on record there. The coldest day for any month was 7.7c in July 1868.

    Sydney - Lowest daily maximum temperature for June ( records since 1859 )
