Fairly benign weather at the moment, but also surprisingly cool, not a lot of warmth in the air.
Tocal, which has long term averages, tracking at 23.7C, some 3C below the November long term average.(and 3C below October this year as well).
Maitland at 24C, which is a rounded figure only early in the month, but 2 days of missing data does not help either.
Nights have been particularly cool this month.
Looks like we are in some type of La Nina though now, and the rest of the month will be below average temps. Rainfall is only in the form of showers, and nothing substantial so far.

Yes it is quite cool but I am quite liking this weather, although it's getting a bit repetitive now. Today was basically the exact same as yesterday which was the same as the previous day etc.

And I notice that there is no end in sight to the current wind circulation. Endless E/NE winds as far as the eye can see. It will be broken up a bit by the trough on the weekend but then it looks like early next week this same pattern of cool mostly sunny weather with coastal breezes every day will continue. Going to be a persistent hot summer for Adelaide and Melbourne if these patterns continue into the warmer months. Today it reached 35 in Adelaide, 37 yesterday after a min of 26. Melbourne got 34 today, about 33 yesterday and even Hobart reached 30C. But yet Brisbane made only 27 and Sydney was the coldest capital in the country struggling to 23C.

I'm finding it interesting that the air is so dry and cool, even all the way up to SE QLD it is cold and dry with mid 20's on the coast and DP's in the low teens. Cold nights as well, like nights of around 15 in Brisbane which is crazy for this time of year. It should be stormy and disgustingly humid up there.

Often this type of setup would bring crappy weather every single day (*2011-12 summer flashbacks*) but this is quite unusually nice.

Afternoon all, and greetings from a very warm Cooks Gap. It's currently hovering around 28 degrees here at the farm and there's a lot of convection, particularly to our North. There's very little in the way of meaningful precipitation though, with just the odd spit here and there. BoM assures us that we'll get some showers and possible storms from tomorrow onwards though. Hope we get enough to make a noticeable difference to the tanks smile

Another carbon copy sunny day, a bit warmer and without the morning cloud. Clear skies,near 30 in the outer West, 26-27 in the middle Ring, while OH reached 24 for only the third time this month. The sea gales are going strongly.

Today was the warmest day we've had in well over a week but it only reached 24C, which is average for this time of year.

I'm not sure if I've ever seen such a prolonged uninterrupted period of NE'ly winds. It began on the 9th and so today will mark a week that we have had NE winds. And I look at the models and see nothing but the same wind direction until at least the 25th.

It must be really rare? Often we get these winds in summer, but they are periodically broken up by southerly changes or less commonly a burst of westerly winds.

My 2 cents' worth: I can't recall seeing such a long-lasting pattern. It's more common in late Summer when we get N-NE winds bringing mild conditions to the East Coast and hot weather to Adelaide, Melbourne and inland NSW.

What we seem to have is a stagnant high sitting well South in the Tasman Sea. Troughs are developing to the East (don't affect us) and to the West (over inland Qld/NSW/Vic). It seems to be 'absorbing' highs approaching from the Bight. So lots of moisture infeed, the chaance for extensive coastal and inland rain and storms and sometimes heat for the South.

Our sunny spell is coming to end end. After another sunny start early, it's been mostly overcast since late morning. The rain band (with showers moving NW -> SE) is gradually edging Eastwards. It may be a couple of hours away, possibly losing intensity as it comes off the ranges. It is currently in the upper Blue Mountains. No sign of lightning on the radar yet.

The outlook for Summer wasn't what I was expecting: temperatures in our part of the world average with a small tendency to above average, rainfall average to a little below: Summer Outlook
