ACC r didn't forecast those high winds at surface layer but suggested 1km up (gradient winds) the winds would certainly be that highConfused Looks to go on in to midnight.
and slowly easing over night.

I don't recall an extreme wind event right across the state like this. There was some strong contrasts in temperature today between the north and south of eastern Australia that likely contributed

Some of the highest gusts near 7pm in Sydney metro atm. Whats available any way.
Sydney harbour 100km/hr
Bankstown 85km/hr
Fort Denison 91km/hr
Kurnell 95km/hr
Sydney airport 102km/hr
Wattamollam85km/hr

OMG.,Look at the Ilawarra and south coast.,I will take some snapsScared

Thanks ambient for taking the time to film and upload the dust storm in your area today.
Looks like a howling desert. So dry there. How are you feeding the cows?
It really has been an amazing day in NSW today.I have been watching things unfold.
There was some posts on twitter about the dust

What were the wind speeds in your area today to raise the dust?

Here are the 7.20pm Illawara and south coast obs.
Must be a lot of damage across the state you would think
Kiama 115km/hr an hour ago

It has been an interesting weather day today!. Have also been keeping an eye on it all day.
Looks like the cows(not mine) are being fed Cotton Seed by the looks of the white patches on the ground. It is looking pretty dire out this way but it is far worse out to the west on the plains in places like Narrabri & Moree, thats where a lot of the dust that hit us originated.

I recorded a gust of 65 kph at 12:45 today, but that was in town. Mt Borah, 40 km to the south recorded a gust of 95 kmh. Moree, Narrabri & Gunnedah had gusts around the 80 kph mark.

Looks like it will be a day spent dusting tomorrow!

Quiet chilly today. Sydney airport only 16 at 1.30pm and feels like a brisk 8.6 with the windy day

Notice the BOM has a warning out for rough seas .

Nice picture from their satellite showing smoke being blown toward the NE rivers coast

Current fires NSW 9th Sept 2019

https://www.rfs.nsw.gov....nformation/fires-near-me

Bushfires NSW .jpg

TENTERFIEL Big one
bush fire is burning in the Long Gully Road, Drake area. The fire has burnt more than 32,800 hectares and is out of control.

Current Situation

The fire is burning in bushland south of the Bruxner Highway and south of Drake and Tabulam, to the west of the Clarence River, in the Girard State Forest.

The fire is burning in a north easterly direction along Long Gully Road and Plains Station Road, towards the Bruxner Highway and the villages of Drake and Tabulam. It is expected to reach the area of Drake and the Bruxner Highway.

Firefighters are working with property owners along both these roads to protect properties as the fire front approaches.

Strong winds are expected to continue. Fallen trees and fire may impact local roads.

The Bruxner Highway is closed between Tabulam and Tenterfield. Check Live Traffic for updates.

Fell to -1.8 this morning but warmed up to a pleasant 22.5. Thankfully those cold SW winds have died down.

Min temps from around my area.

Armidale -1.7
Gunnedah 0.8
Tamworth 1.4
Woolbrook -2.0
Guyra 0.0

Seems unusual that our Minimums are quite often colder than higher altitudes, I`m at 500 m ASL were Armidale, Woolbrook & Guyra are up over 1000 m. Definitely seem to be in a "Frost Hollow" here.

Looks like that might be the end of the sub zero morning temps for this year.
