Here’s The Weather Report. 366/238.
I have already admitted to being a weather nerd and I guess with the advent of apps to help me know what the weather ahead will be like, then that makes me even more so. I have always been this way, especially when we lived in the west of Sydney and I would be off to work in schools and wondering ‘what will I wear!’
I know that most if not all of the weather predictions, updates and forecasts in Australia come from here.
Living here on the Central Coast we have had our fair share of weather extremes which I wrote about too. I think I was prepared for what was ahead during the East Coast Low that came to stay…and over stay in April 2015 but no expert meteorologist could have foreseen how long it stayed as it was ‘most unusual’ as they say.
The weather data from the Central Coast NSW goes back to the Bureau of Meteorology from here:
Weather is what surrounds us and affects us each day/night and I think that’s why I am so interested. I am a big fan of being prepared, comfortable and sheltered!
As I write this post, it is almost the end of August and officially nearing the end of Winter in Australia. However, weather does not do the calendar really well and that explains that we have had both record warm days and nights this Winter as well.
My best guides for the weather are the local forecaster on the news in the area where we live now, my app on my phone called Weather Zone Plus and my husband. He seems to have more knowledge than any and I think he might be a weather expert but uses none of the tools I choose. He checks his barometer and his years of being both a country and city dweller (observer of the skies and what is around him) help.
How do you find out about the weather where you are?
