Just when you thought we were done with winter

By johnboy - 11 November 2013 29

Miserable days in succession but what does the bureau have to say?

Well it’s miserable as far as the eye can see.

Hope you didn’t pack up your winter woolies yet.

What’s Your opinion?

This weather is beautiful. It’s filling the dams, extinguishing the Wiritin bushfire, greening the hills, and nobody will suffer sunburn, sunstroke, heat exhaustion or calenture.

All my indoor plants have been outside for 36 hours getting a good healthy wetting. My extensive collection of newly-acquired tree ferns (thanks, Wiritin ridge bushfire!) couldn’t have wished for a better timed bit of weather.

Anyone who even considered packing up their winter woolies before Rememberance Day isn’t a true Canberran.

I thought true Canberrans don’t need winter woolies. My winter wardrobe means either a jumper on or a jacket. I rarely ever go to a third layer of clothing.

Seems like were back to normal weather for this time of the year for Canberra.

Yeah, as a true Canberran I rarely wear any more than 4 layers (although, admittedly, I’d wear more if I could work out how to do so and still be able to move at all 😉 )

Veggie garden is absolutely loving it.

Global cooling?

I have tried to be cheerful, even wearing my ‘new’ weird ‘cashmere’ jumper bought at a fete, which no cyclist with any taste would think of stealing, and it’s not working. Even making stupid in-jokes isn’t working.

This weather is horrible and it always brings out the resolutely optimistic, and those who like to boast that they don’t feel the cold, and wear singlets when it’s minus fifteen.

Whereas normal people sit round being miserable and drink too much.

Glad to see there’s soem people here to understand the importance of rain. And that we’ve not been getting enough of it lately. Have a look at the snowcams, decent accumulation happening up top (and reports of big flakes on Ginini from a chap who was up there yesterday).

Maybe a bit more this weekend, too. Keep it coming, we need it. And we don’t need sustained 30s temperatures in Spring.

Perfect and long-awaited for.

With any luck, this will completely extinguish the Wiritin Ridge fire, which has been burning for 1 month.

Let’s hope the system(s) producing this rain will be sufficiently large and sustained to deal with all the lingering fires across NSW. After a few very dry weeks we can certainly use the soaking and run-off from steady rain.

Proof? This doesn’t feel normal at all for this time of the year.

Historically, November is the wettest month in Canberra. The mean November rainfall at APH from 1968 is 70.3mm, and the highest daily rainfall there (99mm) was also in November. The next wettest months are October, January, September, and December.

Temp-wise, the mean max in November is just 22.7oC; the mean minimum is 8.8oC (data from 1939 to 2010).

So, if you just want to use the last couple of days as an example, it was colder and wetter than the November mean.

November and December are traditionally the highest rainfall months in Canberra.
