Just spent a couple of days camped down at the beach. Still shorts and tshirt weather. Slept at night with half the windows and the door open on the tent. Only a light blanket on to keep the chill off.

I was hoping for cold. But on the upside there has never been so many crabs in the creek before.

This feels strange apart from not having the fan going we've got all the windows open and doors. Normally a chill comes through the air at night and we shut it.

Walking the dog this morning was awful. Humidity was so high with sun shining feels like temp was 24 deg to 25 deg . Only wind was a light Westerly. The sun felt intense too. Yet the UV was not extreme . Only relief was right next to the water.

At 1030 feels like temp was 27 deg frown thanks to humidity.

I found Yeppoon's weather it's gone to here :

Wonder what's causing the above average temps here but not in Brisbane?

Rocky is currently averaging for minimums, not 1 or 2 deg above not 3 or 4 but ....

Average This Month
14.2įC +4.6įC
Long-term Average 9.6įC


That's crazy ! 4.6 deg above for minimums . Gonna need some cold nights to drop that down.


Tonight in Rocky should be 7.4 deg above average ! But... Wednesday finally might come close to normality.

Must be only raining here in Yeppoon given the lack of posts. Nice and steady now, before it was sparse.

Can't even get washing dry, no wind, no sun, humidity on 80 percent or above all day.

Wouldn't be suprised if we we hit 19 or 20 as a minimum tomorrow morning frown

Tonight is chillier. Of course since the weather is sort of overcast, dampish I am painting. I had to turn the ac on to heat to dry the poly filler.

Pity there is no rain for me out of it. I had such a small amount of it I could here the individual drops on the roof.

Forecast maximum of 23c yesterday hit 26.5c, today forecast 24c sitting on 26.4c. Maybe tomorrow they'll get it right, or atleast 1c closer lol

I received 1.3mm here at home.
Models showing a proper winter setup in a weeks time or so. I really hope so.

Finally a drop in humidity. If Yeppoon is getting 24 deg maximums later this week with 15 deg minimums what happens in September? 24 is more of a September temperature.

Perhaps, and I'm hoping this doesn't happen, we could be in for early heat come September.

A towel was left inside and because it still is so humid in the dry season (isn't stifling hot though) , the towel has got mould on it.

Crazy . That is more of a warm season thing.

Seems to not only be affecting the Cap Coast but Mackay and Townsville all have warmer than average nights and days. Such a dissapointment after a warmer than normal summer. It feels like it never is cooling down .

2.5 days of cooler temps coming. What a joke lol. I'm sleeping under just a light sheet it's not even cold at night.

Miss those 8 deg Yeppoon mornings frown followed by a DRY low 20's day.
