Contrails: Why do they form?

12:00 EDT

With travel restrictions beginning to gradually ease and international borders beginning to slowly open, airplanes, and the contrails they form are likely to become more frequent over the next few months.

Wet end to wild week of weather in Australia's southeast

11:46 EDT

There has been plenty of rain to go around in the southeast of Australia for the past week, and the rainfall totals for the past two days may have just summed up the week nicely.  A complex low pressure system has just moved into the Tasman Sea and is responsible for a lot of the weather that has been hitting the southeast during the past couple of days. Thursday’s rainfall over the southern states was no exception.  In Tasmania it was the wettest October day for:  Lake Leake (41.0mm) in 45 years  Devonport (38.2mm) in 29 years  Low Head (27.4mm) and Fingal (34.6mm) in 16 years  In South Australia it was also the wettest October day for:  Adelaide (29.2mm) in 22 years  Parafield (23.2mm) and Edinburgh (24.0mm) in 21 years  Yunta (24.0mm) in 18 years  Eudunda (18.0) in 16 years  The effects of the low are still being felt now, with brisk winds and showers impacting NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.
