Cloud over the summit of Mt. Stuart this afternoon indicated a half decent dew point which was borne out by the observations of around 20C although 100km or so inland the DP was in single figures.

Looks like it's going to be quite a dry fortnight coming up, obviously not unexpected at this time of year.

Really looking forward to seeing what this storm season brings, given the developing ENSO conditions at the moment (ie, leaning towards La Nina).

Less than 2 weeks to go for our cruise to NZ. First landfall will be Milford Sound and a days cruising up the fjords. I can't wait. There is still snow on the peaks, average daytime max is 9C and overnight is -4C. Natures aircon. 2 week cruise and then a 4 day stop over in Sydney catching up with our youngest son and doing all the tourist stuff. No I'm not going to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Hi guys,

I havent been on here for ages, but I just popped in as I noticed that BOM have activated 3 new AWS stations around our area this afternoon!

One of them is on Mount Stuart

Yes great news they are finally activated. i contacted the Minister for Environments office about 6 months ago, they advised the army training area at Mt Stuart would be getting an AWS on line, but looks like we have picked up some other stations inland too.
and about time too. the argument i mentioned in my letter to the Minister was that places like Mackay, Cairns and Darwin, all smaller in population had multiple AWS sites to get a better representation of actual temps away from the airport sites but Townsville didnt.

Good find PVW! The Mt. Stuart station is actually on the foothills to the immediate north of Ross River dam.

The dew point observations for the Mt. Stuart station are very suspect. A highly predictable diurnal variation with low values during the night and high during the day totally out of character with surrounding stations.

I noticed that a couple of days ago. The relative humidity has been stuck on 42% since it started.

Storm just south of Charters Towers tonight. Got some decent rain at my place from it, haven't checked yet but I'd say somewhere between 5-10mm.
