The Official Weather Thread

Recommended Posts

I know there are already loads (That's "heaps" to you waussies) of weather threads on PIO, I will start another up to date one so that we don't hijack the cricket thread.

So I'll start.  Isn't it supposed to be spring in Australia?

Take cover! Racegoers were caught out in a spurt of heavy rain at Ballarat Cup Day on Saturday

We had our first rainfall in over 4 weeks today.   Things were starting to look a bit parched so it was more than welcome.

Same here, thankful for the rain, the local dam level was down to just over 5% after having virtually no rain over the past year. It's up around 17% now after some good rainfall over the past few weeks.

It's a fact that a helluva lot of people are obsessed by the weather.  :laugh:  Sun, rain, snow, wind, frost, storms  yadda yadda yadda   .........................  always gets a reaction and I'm including myself here.  Daft isn't it?

I don't mind warm rain.  :cute:  Hate cold rain that trickles down your neck if it gets the chance.

"obsessed" is a bit strong but .. Its a human trait, we use the weather as an icebreaker.  I bet if we was to ever meet the first thing we would say would be (if in London) "what a lovely day" and if in Taz "bloody freezing ain't it" ,, after that there would probs be some flirting and one thing might lead to another....

Serious question, you start a thread about the state of the NHS and admit another thread was some sort of revenge for the perceived anti Australian stuff and then call another post petty. Do you see the irony ? You can't have it both ways.

not only the east coast, the west coast is set for a washout summer due to La Nina

Friends in Brisbane have said the weather has been awful, cooler (which is good) windy and rainy.

a moderate climate is far more pleasing.
