The Storm Before The Calm, . For those unfamiliar with the weather pattern leading up to summer in Byron Bay. This is about as typical as it gets. We don’t experience the calm before the storm in spring here; rather we get it in reverse. The calm comes once the southerly frontal system passes through. The storm is the rapid build up of heat, humidity and howling northerly winds and thunderheads that precede it. As the low pressure system makes its way up the coast, it’s got to push the high pressure system out of its path to get here. The closer the Low gets, the more it sucks the wind into it from the High. As the two systems bump up against each other they both get stronger, the wind increases, thunder storms develop. It’s anybody’s guess whether the southerly will make it this far north, or whether it will just keep butting up against the high until it runs out of puff. Why do we want the southerly so bad, well it’s because the temperature drops, the humidity backs off, and the bay smooths itself out. It’s the Calm after the storm. Everyone was abuzz today with talk of a southerly a coming to Byron Bay, and everyone has a theory on when. Me, I make no predictions, but rest assured, if it does arrive. Just like everyone else I’ll claim that I knew when it was coming. It’s amazing how accurate we are about the weather with hindsight, .
