I think it is time we started a thread for November.

Also from the showers last night Marangaroo got 3 mm. I was expecting maybe 1 mm but I am not complaining.

ABC wrote:West Australia's Margaret River wine region told to prepare for above average summer temperatures
Bridget Fitzgerald, Tuesday November 4, 2014 - 13:40 EDT


Above average temperatures are forecast for WA's south west tourist region this summer.

The Bureau of Meteorology has predicted the region has a high chance of exceeding median maximum temperatures over the three months from November to January.

The western coastal corner of the region, from Margaret River to Augusta, is expected to see the most extreme heat with an 80 per cent chance of higher than average temperatures.

AHA Viticulture consultant Jim Campbell-Clause said grape growers should make sure they are prepared for potential summer temperatures to safeguard next year's yields.

Mr Campbell-Clause said the south west wine industry is already tracking ahead of 'normal schedule' due to warm spring weather.

"We've had some warm weather in August and that sort of got bud bursts going early," he said.

To prepare for the forecast warm start to summer, Mr Campbell-Clause said growers need to prioritise water and canopy management.

He said grapes finish flowering, setting and developing during the period from November to January and 'healthy canopies' are needed to protect grapes from sun damage if temperatures are high.

"Particularly white varieties [...] we want to protect the fruit from the heat and from direct sunshine," he said.

Mr Campbell-Clause said water management is critical to ensure vines transpire and keep cool.

The Bureau of Meteorology climate liaison officer Glenn Cook said higher than average temperatures can be caused by warm ocean temperatures and easterly winds.

Mr Cook said the Bureau's outlooks for the south west are approximately 70 per cent accurate, based on atmospheric and ocean modelling.

"It could be lower than normal, but that's much less likely," he said.

Mr Cook said above average temperatures could deplete regional water resources and increase fire danger.

ISS will pass over Perth tomorrow night.
7:23pm -7:29pm.
Appears in the NW and moves over toward the SE

Tonight's pass was a good one.
Nice and bright.
Wednesday's is even brighter

Keep an eye on the sky over the next few nights with the Sth Taurids meteor shower.
A few may even be seen in the daylight hours as happened in the US today.

The NthTaurids has been very colourful.

Floppy the reason is because BoM and BSCH are using two different models. GFS used by BSCH is a computer model.
Then BoM use several models and then have real people also look at the various models and decide on the real forecast.

It appears as if there is anomalous projection on Perth Radar because I don't think there is a shower/storm near Yanchep.

What a strange storm, it's trail can be followed on the sat pic too. So nice to wake up to thunder (if a little early) :)
