There appears to be a hoard of virgins (virga) approaching the metro area. Lots of light echoes on radar but few if any drops reaching the ground.

Yes it seems cyclones always find a way to make the BOM look silly - at least when they head south.

so I am looking at the current 4 day forecast map
and I see TC Nathan is predicted to cross into the gulf of Carpentaria as a low then reform into a TC
and hit the Northern Territory, before downgrading into a low again
any ideas if it to reform again in the Timor sea or something

I don't think it will, while Ocean temps are high enough the drop off in monsoonal activity doesnt bode well for refomation... not enough going onto drive it - thats just my reading.. could be very wrong! :D

Recent rains have seem to bring out the black portugese millipedes at my place. Anyone else got the same problem as this the first time they being getting inside.

They were everywhere. My SES unit was millipede city on Monday night's training. There was thousands of them.

Enjoying this cooler weather though it still feels a bit humid some days.

Light sources tend them bring them in at night mostly and fly spray gets rid of them pretty quick.

We would have needed several cartons of cans to get rid of the ones the other night. Waaay too many chemicals for me haha. Apparently you can buy millipede catchers which are lipped bowls with a solar light in the middle which is supposed to attract them.

Despite the warm weekend that has been forecast you can definitely feel autumn in the air. Well we certainly can down here. It wa only 8 degrees last night.
