A per­fect day to talk about weather

Mansfield Courier - - NEWS -

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.
