Storm this afternoon? – Armchair meteorologist verdict

By 123qwe - 14 November 2008 25

The Bureau of Meteorology estimates a 40% chance of rainfall today. Predicts isolated showers and thunderstorms.

Its now 2:30pm, 30 degrees, windy and I think the chances of rain and storms are about 95%.

Get your horses undercover and enjoy the rain! http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,24650617-29277,00.html

I’m reliably informed that Fraser got a bit of a dumping in the last few minutes.

looking very grey down south, but i think it will blow over.

Look on the national map – there looks to be more where that came from!

Grrr, looking on the BOM radar, it looks like the rain/storm is going to completely avoid us by such a slim margin 🙁

The high winds are a bit of a concern, they’ll dilute anything we get, unfortunately. You want a hot, humid, still day for really good storms.

There’s a bunch of stuff festering in from the west north west right now, I’m just a bit concerned at how they appear to be stalling on the western range. Still.

I saw some really good ones form to the east earlier today and head to the coast, and another huge thing formed to the north, and set off for the coast, and I think we’ll see something a bit later. But the wind will skunk us of something more spectacular.

Crapola, I am going to an outdoor BBQ tonight.

Looks like AngryHenry has been struck down by a bolt from above.

Looking outside, the ants who had previously been doing nothing more than tearing apart a caterpillar have in the last hour all decided to build little preventative dykes around their holes.
Storm seems likely.

Last loop on weather radar at 3:50pm looks promising. Rain near Gundagai may get here in an hour or so. Nasty storm heading towards Point Perpendicular.

BOM have upped their prediction to 60%

tylersmayhem 3:49 pm 14 Nov 08

Yep – doesn’t look like rain nor storm to me. I’m hoping for some rain for the garden – especially now the roof is fixed 🙂

I hope the 95% prediction is right!

pretty cloudy here in the city, and mighty muggy fo’ sure….

RAGD 3:39 pm 14 Nov 08

Looks pretty clear out the window near dickson.

Holden Caulfield 3:21 pm 14 Nov 08

Looks pretty dry on the radar: http://mirror.bom.gov.au/products/IDR401.shtml

The pain in my left knee tells me you may well be right.
