Unless we get a NW Cloud band or until the fog later in the season that will herald the end of the dry I guess that's about the forecast for the next four months.....

Seems like lots of burning off happening atm but the moon rose just after sunset and was magnificent .

Yep Sepo Easterlies , warm dry air and cool nights .

Amazing how fast the top layers of soil actually dry out at least at the surface. Dry season chores :Fixed all the sprinklers and next the drippers.

Think we will get some June rain this year ..But just a hunch maybe 50 or 60mms over a few days.

Temperature rose 5.2 deg when the wind went slightly more southerly then went down 5.3 deg when it more of a south easterly .
Maybe because of more off the ocean with the southerly wind but interesting to see a rise in such a short timeframe.

Time Temp Hum Wind
20/12:22am 16.8 72 SE
20/12:00am 22.1 41 SSE

19/11:30pm 22.7 44 S
19/11:00pm 22.8 47 S
19/10:30pm 23.1 49 S
19/10:16pm 22.3 58 S
19/10:00pm 17.1 80 SSE

8.7c last night coldest in 706 days. Winter is here. That water temp in the ocean will drop away quickly now. 25 deg would be well offshore. Much colder in the shallow areas inshore. Only cause I sit in it every day.

Amazingly high minimum last night of 21 deg when the average for July is only 13.

Still having beautiful days with light winds and 30 deg .

Went kayaking yesterday in the bay and it was about as good as it gets with smooth blue water.

When the tide got big about lunchtime witnessed hundreds of bats flying around the mangroves.

A few ospreys and kites where around also to make sure none of them especially the smaller ones didn't have too much trouble taking to the skies.

Also caught a nice size trevally as well .

Broome this time of year is just awesome ...love it.
