Looks like I missed out on some destructive weather in Sydney last night though Idid notice unusually long periods of rain and wild weather (read very windy and blustery conditions) in SE NSW.
A quick scan of the suspicious observers site and again, solar activity seems to be the factor, with yet again another surge of electrified plasma affecting the earth.
This can be interpreted in one simple way by asking why would a surge of protons passing through the earth-system cause “wild weather” and torrential rain?
My guess, expressed previously, is that rain seems to be the way in which solar protons reach the earth’s surface after accumulating in the ionosphere. The wild weather is then a case of the operation of the Lorentz force, but this then leaves the question of whither thence the protons? Do they accumulate on the earth’s surface or do they then travel laterally, causing winds, and leaving the earth system via low-pressure systems.
Or, are the wild-weather, low pressure systems actually the means by which the protons leave the earth-system?
Of course not, the science is all settled, isn’t it. Silly me.
