Destructive winds averaging 80 km/h with peak gusts around 130 km/h are forecast for parts of the Southern Tablelands and Snowy Mountains forecast districts above 1900 metres.

Alpine Peaks may experience winds averaging 100 km/h with peak gusts around 160 km/h

Damaging winds averaging 60 km/h with peak gusts around 95 km/h are forecast to develop this evening and overnight in the parts of the Australian Capital Territory, Metropolitan, Northern Tablelands, South Coast, Illawarra, South West Slopes, Hunter and Central Tablelands forecast districts.

The State Emergency Service advises that people should:

— Move vehicles under cover or away from trees.

Hell yeah, & I have to ride the pushy home……..

Me too. And I always know which way the wind will be blowing: Straight at me.

Hehehe, one advantage to living in the “shitty” south side, I have a tailwind most afternoons. It certainly is a shock to the system when it swings around.

Anyway, it was quite pleasant riding home last night, relatively warm & the raind stayed awy for the most & I had the wind at my back. Took the soft option this morning & jumped on the bus though.

Creative: I dont need a sail (although it would be nice) , I am 6’2″ & not the slightest of guys so the wind works for & against me. I had a couple of rides a couple of weeks ago where my travel time one way was 1 hour 18, the next morning the southerly was still blowing & the time was 58 minutes. You have to take the bad with the good……
