Yeah CAC, this June is looking like another spectacular disappointment for rainfall.

Let me just give some actual stats (yes I am aware the station moved around about 1992, but just let me whinge!)

The long term average for June for Perth till 1992 was 182.4mm.
The last time Perth passed that average in any June was in 2005 (251.0mm). But of course I was overseas that year, so the last time I personally experienced an above-average Perth June was in 2002, which was still only just, 183.8mm.

Lousy drying winters.

I remember 2005. Had just moved to Perth. Everything was super green and lush and if I'm correct May and June were very wet but July was back to dry again.

If it wasn't for ex TC Debbie it would be a very dry year so far here too.
Yeppoon Annual Average Rainfall is (BOM) = 982.5mm
2012 Yeppoon 976.8mm
2014:1114.2mm

No meaningful rain or winter temperatures for the foreseeable future. Despite the clear skies we aren't even having low overnight minimums. It's now a question of will we see any rain for the month and record a single day below the monthly average of 19.5c.

Nothing on the +384hr models, with a new blocking high developing to the south west on the 24th, and it will probably see us through to the end of the month. June 2015 was the warmest June on record at 21c, and the June of 2013 was the driest month on record at the airport, both look to be eclipsed at this stage.

Wow, calm conditions over just the metro site producing a temp of 3c. I have never seen anything like this, over 7 degrees warmer just a few kilometres to the east and west!
