Equaled a 22 year old record yesterday with a maximum of 36 deg.
Pretty high for July that is for sure.

Ridge bought up lots of cool air from the south especially with those strong Easterlies which have been blowing last couple of days.

Fitzroy Crossing was 5.8 deg last night and Halls Creek 3.6 .

NO NW cloud bands this season. Kind of strange to not get any. Oh well hope the 38 degree days up Fitzroy and Wyndham way start nudging the 40's soon to get the build up really going. Very early if they do. Bring it on.

The new Halls Creek site is much cooler at night than the old one (which was more elevated), especially in dry air: average differences so far this month are tracking at about 3.5 degrees.

Yeah Popeye - I was just thinking the same thing about no NW cloud bands.. Must be the first year in 6 or 7 that we haven't.... Great time of year right now - temperatures are just warming up, nights are not too cold, and I even notice a heat trough down through WA later in the week... All the drivers starting to slowly crank around for the change towards the wet. As you say, bring it on!

How was today? 37.5 degrees. Only 0.3 off the August record for Broome. Stonking hot. Still nice compared to the same with 80% humidity that we will get in a few months time. Hot for Winter though. I wonder what this season will bring? Neutral Enso, Neutral IOD. MMMMMMM I'm thinking a standard wet which hopefully will be back to the normal of past years = lots of storms and rain and a few hefty TC's.

First Cumulonimbus clouds around on the horizon to the north east yesterday afternoon.
Those thunderstorms only produced some isolated rain around the plains but definitely good to see a bit of a build up start happening.

At last humidity is down and there was a nice sea breeze came in not long after lunch to cool things down a bit.
