Sunday’s not looking good.

If this was further north, it would be a cyclone.

Anyone else want to jump in my tinny and hit up some snapper lumps in the sound?

Excellent

 Excellent stuff, had a look at the Wooramel forecast and we are looking at a 95% chance of rain on Sunday. Will be very welcome, we had 1.4ml about 2 weeks back and a light shower while we were standing out at the roadside on Anzac Day morning that didn't register in the gauge.  Considering over the last 4-5 years the average has dropped from 200mm annually to around 70mm

 Very unseasonal tropical low type thing!!

 

I hope you get a decent rain without any damage Canarvon, My inlaws inland Gerro will be rubbing their hands together with the possibility of 40mm on the dry seeded crops...

Anything left?

 Did Marshall have any of those dry-seeded crops left by th time the rain came in? Massive dust storm up this way, Gero was hideous.

 When i say unseasonal I think its only August from memory on the west coast that there has never been a cyclone but still getting late in the year for a trop low to come down...

Cyclone Mangga

Fri, 2020-05-22 10:26

 Looks to be the remnants of a cyclone named this morning combining with a winter cold front.  Farmers will be happy providing the rain gets there before the wind.

Before lunch

Sat, 2020-05-23 23:14

 I think a quick bash out to the 60s and back to Woodman Point before lunch should be okay tomorrow. 

It would be an interesting conversation with sea sea rescue out at 25nm in the afternoon asking for help in 8m seas.

Blewitzarzoff up here today

Sun, 2020-05-24 19:32

 Started early was fairly cranking by mid-morning. North island recorded a peak gust of 98km/hr or somesuch, it was easily 50 knots here gusting higher. i have been in this house for 40 years, and it's the worst wind damage I've ever had. Massive dust storm. apparently it was worse in Gero--we don't have much cropping country north of here, not so much to blow, but Gero was just a giant dust cloud. Big flowering gum out the front lost it's top , ended up in the driveway, I had moved my ute 10 minutes before. But another  big lump of it is still up there hanging. Other trees lost large branches, a big palm is down in the backyard, place looks like it has been carpet bombed by a woodchipper. Went for a drive, toilet block at Chinamans has lost it's roof, Laundromat also, and other roofs gone. A lot of fences down, trees down. I saw a large limb from a river gum land on the playground across the pub as I was driving. I walked out to the lookout over Chinamans to try and take pics, literally had to brace myself to not be blown over. The power went out at about 0900, still off, may be 2 days before we get it back? Luckily, I can run everything on the generator. The boat pens are daamged, water was overtopping the walkways, and, as the big boats were hammering the posts right up the top, they started snapping off. Much scrambling to re-tie . The swell isn't huge,built a bit during the morning, but a very big wind slop.

We didn't get any rain until 330, but it has rained steadily since, thank christ. But I suspect a lot of farmers will have lost all their freshly sown crops. 

Took some pics early in the day, look at the dust blowing off the station. And that is not cropped or burnt country.

Woo what a sight

Sun, 2020-05-24 19:43

Thanks for posting a great pic I have never seen dust like that at Kalbarri (I think that is where it is) I feel very sorry for the farmers who have put in a crop and now have this to contend with.
Forget about getting out of the mouth today

Must have been coming from a long way off.

Mon, 2020-05-25 08:35

 Wind was nor'east, then north. I reckon a lot of dust was raised up at Exmouth--think of all that burnt country---and blown out to sea. Because, when the wind shifted nor'west, another big dust bank came in from out at sea  You could see them as separate. The rain was right behind it, we ended up with 26mm, thankfully, which makes a whole 36mm for the year.  

The shire was hard at work this morning, saved me a big job--well, what's inside my boundary is still a big job, but they cleaned up the verge, a couple of truckloads. Including hooking down a widowmaker from the top of a flowering gum with the backhoe. It had stayed up there when the rest snapped off.
