A perfect day to talk about weather
LAST weekend, meteorologist and Channel Seven weather girl, Jane Bunn, visited Mansfield to talk all things weather.
Just as the Mansfield Bendigo Bank team were setting up at the showgrounds for the “Understanding The Weather” event, the dark grey clouds rolled in and the wind picked up.
As marquees were pegged down and banners were weighted, Ms Bunn arrived.
Not surprisingly, the first question fielded to the meteorologist was “is it going to rain? We were planning on having the afternoon tea outside”.
Obviously well versed on the subject, Ms Bunn replied - “very high chance of rain and thunderstorms between 2pm and 3pm – yes, good idea to have the afternoon tea inside”.
Sure enough, j ust as Ms Bunn started to explain the difference between rain and showers, the heavens opened up.
Beating down on the roof of the showgrounds pavilion, the rain was not enough to steal Ms Bunn’s thunder.
Those attending learnt nu- merous weather facts, including the impact that the Pacific Ocean (El Nino / La Nina), and Indian Ocean (Indian Ocean Dipole) have on our weather, and what the difference between ‘mostly sunny’ and ‘partly cloudy’ was.
Mansfield Bendigo Bank and Rural Bank were pleased to host the free Jane Bunn event for the Mansfield community – they would like to thank Ms Bunn for bringing her knowledge and enthusiasm about the weather to Mansfield, and hope that everyone attending enjoyed the afternoon.
