Hi Southawk and a very big welcome to our first South Australian users to post. ThumpUp
I will post a photo of Gemma the cat soon. She is just having a wash to get ready for the photo shoot and sleeping off her dinner at the moment.

Sadly, SA is the state that I have visited the least, so I will have to correct that when I can. I went to Adelaide and the Adelaide hills in January a couple of years ago and I remember getting off of the plane to temperatures in the high 30s and a bone dry wind. It was like having a hair dyer blown on me. Beautify city and I must visit again sometime.

If you know any other SA people from the forums, let then know about this one and we can build up the SA thread.

Chilly for the coastal folk for the next few days. Top of 14-15.
The NW about 20 today
Forecast said cumuloform cloud.? You can see all the speckles on the satellite picture.
I had to look up that termBlushing
It would seem it is another name for cumulus. They often come onshore from the Bight during southerlies.
and l believe there are other names but l have never heard of these

An interesting possibility for SA. In 6 days time ACC g has a long wave trough for SA which could sweep the entire state. Nice if it eventuates. Good luck 'guys'BigGrin
..............


T+150hr forecast ACCg..Thursday 19th Sept 2019

Long wave trough to a very northerly 25s latitude possibly giving most parts of the state a storm band and some precipitation.

A welcome event for SA

An ACC R forecast for this Friday morning.

Some notes
Friday 19th Sept.
Long wave trough. Very moist southerly feeding in to the backside of the trough

A strong 1040 High near NZ may contribute to strong pre frontal winds ahead of the rain band.

Possible embedded thunderstorms

A nice long precip’ band from 28s down to the coast.
Could be a nice event for Adelaide and the peninsula

Firstly thanks to colmait who has taught me some confidence to take some steps to talk about storm forecasts.I can recommend his first tutorial here

https://www.weatherforum...-formation-and-structure



It seems the potential for storms with this cold front is weak but not ruled out. Better chances over the border in West Vic.
Better potential offshore .Hopefully we may catch a glimpse of something forming near Adelaide.

The incoming cold air pool looks splendid on this afternoons satellite picture..

cold pool and front 19th Sept 2019 SW WA.jpg

and BTW at 3pm it is 29deg c in Adelaide.BigGrin

and here is Fridays forecast for Adelaide . No thunderstorm icon but a mention in the weather description as a chance

The forecast rain will be welcome

Friday 20 September

Summary
Min 12
Max 16

Possible rainfall: 5 to 15 mm

Great to have a keen weather enthusiast join in SA. Have a great time mate. Look forward to your posts.

Watch out for spam mail in your pm box. Some desperado from another forum asked me to leave here and join them. Well. I don't like that sort of behavior but thought l would warn ya.

Bit wild in the NW district today. High winds and gusts and a top of 37.8at 3pm.
Thats severe weather in my book

Gust to 63 recently.

Some big gust numbers elsewhere today

Port Lincoln 83
Cleve 93
Port Augusta 87
Robe 70
minlatonn95
Cape willoby 102
adelaide airport 69
