Rainband for parts of Sth East Australia 30th sept-2nd Oct 2013

ACCESS G is suggesting quite a long rain band to travail across parts of the south eastern quadrant of the Australian mainland.
30th sept 2013  rain OZ


    Sunday the 29th Sept

a long trough develops over western Australian interior bringing no rain to inland parts but some patchy rain on the southern WA coast.
As the trough moves eastward a rainband deepens and a closed 994 hPa low develops over Adelaide area giving rain to SA southern parts and s/west and Wimmera in VIC on Monday evening

    .At 4pm

prime time this could provide quite a strong storm line so look for expert opinion

    4am Monday morning

the rainband has intensified and stretches from around woomera to Gippsland. The Mallee should get some needed rain.

Tuesday 10am ACCESS is indicating an intense rain hot spot over eastern suburbs the peninsula of Melbourne and west Gippy . Potentially Up to 50mm!!
That rain band now straddles from s/west Qld through the interior of NSW and through the midriff of VIC. This should provide some welcome top up rain for farmers in NSW and southern QLD
The rest of Tuesday the rainband/trough moves toward the coast.

  3. Equal 3rd record wind gusts recorded in VIC

    Tuesday’s when winds were the strongest recorded in Melbourne for nearly 30 years.
    thousands of homes across Melbourne are still without power after the strongest winds since 1985 ripped through the city overnight, uprooting trees, tearing down powerlines and causing widespread damage.
    Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Matt Michael said the 143km/h wind gust, recorded after midnight at Fawkner Beacon, a weather station in the bay west of Sandringham, was the third strongest on record.
    The strongest wind swept through Melbourne in 1985, reaching speeds of 154km/h in Laverton, while the second-strongest reached 147km/h in Essendon in 1948.

    At Tullamarine gusts were recorded at 122km/h, and 120km/h at St Kilda.

    Victorians will need to brace themselves for more wild weather, with these conditions expected to persist over the next few days.

    More windy weather is expected on Wednesday before conditions calm down to make way for a fine weekend.

    Weather bureau data has also revealed Melbourne notched a record high average maximum top temperature for September of 20.1C.

  4. THANKS to Rob sharpe from weatherzone on the action in NSW and QLD currently 1st oct 2013

    Ferocious front is crossing NSW

    Rob Sharpe, Tuesday October 1, 2013 – 16:06 EST

    Damaging winds and severe thunderstorms are surging through New South Wales, with gusts over 130km/h in parts.

    From the South Coast to the Hunter winds picked up almost simultaneously at lunch time with the approach of a cold front. Gusts of 85km/h ran under the Harbour Bridge to Fort Denison, with even stronger gusts likely funnelling between some buildings in the city. In the Hunter, Murrurundi was hit by gusts over 100km/h. Even Goulburn Airport felt a gust of 89km/h at 12:30pm.

    Earlier, this system provided gusts of 133km/h to Thredbo and 143km/h on Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay with further gusts well over 100km/h in Melbourne causing serious damage.

    The trough ahead of the front is currently producing a line of thunderstorms from southwestern QLD to the Hunter, engulfing Walgett, Gilgandra and the aptly named Lightning Ridge among many other locations.
