just poed a question in building trade swells about a synoptic map. would like all you blokes to add your input. dont share if you want to keep knowledge secret, but i am interested in getting to know how you put all thess prognosis' together. i bet some of the beginners would anyway. hope u can help, interesting i stuff i reckon especially with all your own takes on it. There are probably lots of feeds back to previous threads. thanks guys. But look at the map im taking about, it to me looks like heaven on earth, except she moved too fast. what do u reckon?

No cradling high, Dave...... But she's a beast of a system....

Here's a picture of a nicely cradled low off SEQ, Davo...... Note the high just west of South island NZ, creating a nice little squeezed fetch on the south side of the low...... Pumping at burliegh......

Also, as Ben often points out, the direction the cyclone or low moves is crucial.... Lets just say Pam was heading southwest straight at the goldy, maaaaaaate.... Just imagine a bulldozer pushing through sand.... Yeah, you're gonna get some sand spilling off the side, but right in front of bulldozer is full on.... That's pretty simplified, and not exactly scientifically correct, but it's close enough.... lol

Glad you got rid that drunk post of mine from the front page Sheepio.
Geez how embarrassing, but hey thats what happens, poor ol Davo just wanted some input from the SN high tech weather gurus .
All he got was bulldozers which is a great explanation lol, and cranky Welly whinging about the princess pro's haha
Anyways todays from a different spectrum....?
Surface pressure GFS (hPa)

Isotachs (kph)

Streamlines 200 hPa

Southey, Sheepio are Streamlines Jet stream systems high up..?
From Southey's previous mind boggling posts on weather , I'm beginning to feel there is more to just surface pressures where upper atmospheres like jet streams etc have a huge effect...?
All these configurations of various weather maps kind of say a bigger picture than what people can't appreciate...? Big jigsaw puzzle that even the worlds biggest computer models at the moment can't comprehend......
Altho SN wams 8 days ago come pretty clean IMO:)

Maaate.... I'm just "huey from hueys cooking adventures"..... You'll have to speak to Ben Calombaris, Manu Brokensha or Heston Southey for all that fancy shite..... Re upper level - I'll just look for upper lows and disturbances moving in from Timor during winter bomb season...... And cyclones are more of a gut call for me, having been associated with them since the age of 4 years old.....

You're a funny c*nt, welly..... BTw just had a look at burleigh cam.... Yeah.... Solid..... You know, when I was young, Burleigh was ranked as one of the best right hand points in the world..... It now looks like a joke.... A bad joke..... This same swell in 85 would've had every gold coast point in all their glory.... The sand pumping has fucked it..... Every man and his gimp at snapper, Cbin, or under par kirra......

Welly.... The phantom tassie graffiti artist story..... It's a good story... A fair story.... A story with a beginning , then a bit in the middle, and to top it off, an ending.... You can't ask for much more than that, really....

The artist started the story with a simple 2 word comment in a wooden bench..... "Sheepdog wanks"..
So that's Artist -1.... Sheepdog - 0
The dog wrote a reply.... it then read "Sheepdog wanks his HUGE cock"....

Artist - 1 Sheepdog - 1

The artist came back with a ball in the back of the net - "Sheepdog wanks his HUGE cock over gay porn"....

Artist - 2 sheepdog - 1

The dog counter attacked...... "Sheepdog wanks his HUGE cock over gay porn of you sucking dick"....

Artist - 2 sheepdog -2

It went to extra time...... With seconds on the clock, the artist made his move.....
Underneath "Sheepdog wanks his HUGE cock over gay porn of you sucking dick", the artist scrawled........... "But I'm only 12 yo"...........

There is no comeback from that..... I screamed "offside", but to no avail....... The whistle blew..... 3 - 2 to the artist.........The artist held up the southern sledge trophy..... The dog gracefully applauded the artist on a game well played........

Too right Sheepio.
IMO I would've felt a little uneasy....! So to speak.
