My friend Ian Fraser has mentioned the weather of 05/01/2013 in Duffy in his post about Bellenden Ker. The way the weather played out at Carwoola on that day was quite interesting.
It was forecast to get to 39C today, which rates as stinking hot, with no particular forecast for rain.
It had just about got there at 4pm when clouds appeared and the temperature dropped a few degrees. Checking the BoM radar showed a small storm approaching so modem unplugged. A few spots of rain fell, but not enough to register. The sun emerged again and temperature climbed again.
About 7pm I looked at the radar again and a large storm cell was about 20km South, which usually means it has passed by. On this occasion I checked the looping facility and found it to be travelling North: ie incoming. Modem disconnected again! It provided 2.4mm of rain and dropped the outdoor temperature (red line) dramatically.
The situation indoors was considerably more pleasant. We don't like to run our air-conditioner unnecessarily but yesterday it was 'necessary'. In this graph the indoor temperature is the blue line.
