wind has really dropped here but still overcast at the moment
it did clear for a while yesterday arvo but clouded over again
we have also had really light drizzle, like you can feel it on your skin but nothing shows in the gauge
enough to dampen the washing on the line if you are not quick getting it off

currently 19.9, overnight low 19.5
no wind here at all ( BOM has 7/9 at the airport )

well .... the cumulus cloud ( mentioned in the other thread ) has largely gone to be replaced by a layer of higher level stuff
it's currently 23.9 ( up 0.1 degree since I started this post ) which is quite warm for this time of day here in Albany
and now 24.0 ( in the time taken to write the last sentence... )
so it looks like a warm one for Albany today
overnight we had 18.2
it was still earlier ( around 5:30 ) but the wind is picking up now
now 24.2
and no rain in the gauge
and now as I click the submit button
now 24.8

well... first it was the cumulus, then the cirrus, then it cleared and boy did it get hot( 39.4 ), then the cirrus, then the cumulus came back, and did it go from light and fluffy to mean and nasty or what, within the space of an hour it went from just high cloud to thunder. We had an hour or two of the thunder with light rain, then that cleared off then the next load of rain came through, not really heavy but it lasted quite a few hours in to the evening.

it is currently 17.7, overnight low 17.1
there is 13 mm in the gauge, still and raining very lightly

It's pretty calm here for a Friday morning, Friday - being rubbish day - means it is usually windy to blow everyone's rubbish around that isn't in black sax. This is Murphy's law at work with the weather of course.

currently 14.6, overnight 11.9
There is a broken layer of cloud to the south ( it can keep travelling that way too ) but clear to the north
wind is almost nil but should pick up as more people put out their rubbish bins
