The weather has been nice and cool at night. Looks like temps heading back up into the low 20's at night, which I don't like at all.

Lots of late max's. Couple of autumn feeling days. What us hillbillies hang for is the time it rains and stays green. Usually April is the earliest.

Did anyone notice the rain falling to our west this evening? Just headed down the beach and there was a fair bit of what looked to be mostly virga rain coming from the cloud bank that moved in this arvo. Also saw a heap of little cu trying to form along the trough line. I did also notice a bit of cu trying to form under the cloud that moved in this arvo.

It sure cooled off rapidly todays as well :)

I noticed it on the radar. I noticed the cloud coming up from the SW during the day and wondered where it was coming from too.

well this morning we are getting some of the cloud which is from the little system that nearly thought about being a cyclone, if it weren't for more favourable conditions. Might keep the temps down a bit today. there will, by the look, also be a fair bit more later today as well. Or it could just get really hot up higher and the cloud just burn off? any thoughts.

Well we might have not got any rain from that cloud though we did get a rather spiffy sunrise this morning, anyone else catch it? here's my best effort from this morning:

The lower level clouds (if there are any) will burn off as the day warms up but the mid to upper levels wont. So will be a day of 'cloudy periods' I will say, its a pity this system didnt develop around 600km further east, couldv'e been an interesting day to say the least. I think thats what the models originally thought a few days back, oh well back to watching the temp go up...

Yes, although I didn't quite see it as good as that! But lots of nice pink up my way, but not so much the gold. Perhaps I just wasn't looking at the right time.

That looks beautiful Tim. We didn't get a sunrise like that here but my friend in Kirup which is just down the road from here, said she got some rain last night.

Thanks for the comments Blue Skies and Silvercloud, was definitely a stunner of a sunrise, though I should give most the credit to my better half who dragged me out of bed at 6:50am to see it. :) Stunning Sunrise and sunsets can be a very localised phenomen, I remember one occasion my folks ringing me up to tell me to look at the awesome sunset only to go outside and say what sunset?! and they only lived 4 kms away at the time.

We should certainly break the 40C today, currently 39.1C and no sign of a sea breeze on the coast, maybe 41-42C as a max.

is anyone surprised that we got very close to 42 degrees today, do you think the low in the kimberley has something to do with it or is it just the high in the bight and west coast trough combining to bring in the hot easterly breeze

yeah just the west coast trough and the high in the bight H&S. :)

41.6C at my place today, which is almost identical to the official max of 41.5C.

Whoa! Awesome sunrise Tim! I have to say I was up at that time and it didn't look that spekky from here in Stirling! Nice shot!

It's going to be an uncomfortable day tomorrow with the humidity. I'm finding this summer rather depressing at the moment. Not even close to enough fluffy stuff so far. Let's hope March and April bring some intersting weather. The latest chase into the Wheatblet I ever had was 22nd of April, back in 2001 So there's still hope, especially since it has been a hot summer. Hopefully the storm season (if I can call it that :roll: ) could last a little bit longer than usual.

Yup, that's life in the Land of Monotony at the moment. :cry:

I see there was a forecast for snow in the Victorian Alps tonight. Talk about extremes!
