  1. LOW pressure over the Australian mainland is continuing to persist since at least mid NOVEMBER 2014

    19th -23rd Jan
    Here is a snap of the forecast for the 21st Jan 2015 showing the persisting surface synoptic pattern
    The eastern flank of Australia will be on the eastern flank of a stationary long trough centred in S/west QLD giving much of the eastern seaboard the chance of rain and storms from the 19th until at least the 23rd JAN
    The intensity of the event varies along the eastern quadrant from day today

  3. ACCESS suggesting continued low pressure over the mainland continuing to the end of January at least.
    Note how far south the high pressure belt is situated

    ACCESS indicating a tropical dip in isobars forming in south central WA,
    and
    eastern quadrant of OZ’ where another embedded low forms in central southern QLD on the 27th jan with rain signals right along the eastern quadrant of the low and trough
    Another tropical dip in isobars in the southern coral sea spawns an embedded low on the 27th which appears to transition south west and form an ECL off the west VIC coast by the 29th Jan

  4. The dip in isobars over the mainland continues albeit with an increase in 4 hpa
    Here is a snap showing the forecast for Sunday the 8th Feb 2015
    Notice the very wide spaces between isobars indicating very low wind flow
    This will assist in temperatures to climb widely across large swathes of Australia l suspect

  7. Marcia provides Golden swell

    “WORLD champion Mick Fanning led the way on Saturday as teams of local surfers carved up the best waves on the southern points at Snapper Rocks, Burleigh, Currumbin Alley, Kirra and Greenmount.
    While more than 550 properties were damaged and 60,000 houses blacked out further up the Queensland coast, the aftermath of Cyclone Marcia – now a tropical low – ensured a perfect playground for experienced board-riders.
    With the swell coming from the east instead of the south, rolling six-foot barrels have been the order of Friday and Saturday.
    “This is not far off the best I’ve ever surfed,” Gold Coast lifeguard Joel Nantes told AAP.”
