Terrible conditions here on the Central Coast, also in the Hunter and Sydney Metro areas.

Flooding, trees uprooted, no power, schools closed, 135 km per hour winds.

Not even content with stealing the Origin cup, NSW is now also stealing Queensland's weather?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

I thought Canberra was bad but it looks pretty rough up there. Stay safe!

saw some crazy footage of houses going down the street in Dungog and someone surfing lefts off the Opera House at Bennelong Point into Farm Cove.

Few elderly persons have passed away in Dungog. Pretty sad.

My workplace (school) had a tree fall through my classroom roof today... Luckily the school had been closed and I had left an hour or so beforehand.

Missed us on the North Coast but the weather banks we could see to the South at times looked brutal. Upper Hunter has been absolutely devastated.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Thankfully climate change doesn't exist, otherwise things me might have gotten really hairy. These bizarre weather patterns are becoming way too commonplace.

/political commentary.

Looks horrendous up there. I hope everyone stays safe and I hope the buggers at the Holiday Inn parked our car undercover on Sunday while I'm enjoying the sunshine up in QLD.

Some modelling suggests that the type of East Coast low that is responsible for this weather event will become less frequent due to climate change.

I thought that modelling suggested they would become less frequent, but potentially stronger. So less ECLs (which occur several times each winter) and more events like this one would still be consistent with the modelling.

I should try and track down a link, but I can't be bothered.

To everyone in the Sydney/Hunter region, stay safe.

I'd hate to be a weather modeler. I have to rely on that type of info for my job. To say it's indicative at best is being generous.

It's nightmare stuff trying to predict what the long term future holds with regards to extreme weather events. I'm too old to spend my time trying to understand what model is the least accurate when we can't even forecast stuff like this coming a week before it hits (to this extent).
