Thanks for the updates desieboy.
How you coping with the Humidity up there?

You guy's up there really cop some seriously sultry weather, just looking at current conditions 33.2C, Dew point of 25.2, feels like 41.2C...

Would love to spend a summer up there though.

Yep W_V we do get some humidity up here .So far I think we have dodged it a fair bit with humid mornings around 60% til about 4 then onshore winds taken over and cool it down.

I guess you get used to it but worth it when you get those nice big thunderstorms appear and come in.

The subtropics can be an awesome place to be ,amazing weather in the dry and awesome storms in the wet.The transitional period during the build up to the wet are the trying times although as I said this year has been pretty good ...so far. frown

P.S .. forgot to mention always got the a/c as insurance if things get a bit too much ... wink

Easterlies didn't help with precipitation yesterday .

Looked so ominous in Broome with a huge storm heading towards the town from the north west only to see it dissipate about 20kms out.

Hey DB, I was watching that storm on the radar - must've been so dissapointing when it fizzled!

What are the locals thoughts on onset of wet season up there? We get into Broome on the 22/12 for approx 10 days. If I don't get a storm I will be very upset haha. Even more so if the Pilbara turns it on while away!

Hi LL Yes weve had a few dissapointments so far this season...in Broome anyway,had about 25mms since Oct.

Other places close by have faired quite well with some good storms around the area including the Gibb and in the north ofcourse.

Most locals reckon it will be a decent wet season once it gets going all we need is our mojo to kick in coinciding with some good monsoonal troughs.
Hopefully spread down towards the Pilbara as well.

You should see some good storms around when your up here ,never know could have massive rains and the road gets flooded at the plains or near Sandfire,then you'll be stuck up here...

BTW Popeye has deserted us and got his own weather thing happening with his site on facebook so hes left me all by my lonesome... cry cry

Luckily I'm kind of used to talking to myself anyway. wink smile

Yeah I reckon good wet season once it gets going as well, it's just the getting going part that's the problem. MJO is due for another visit early to mid Jan, no doubt it'll kick everything off just after we leave cry

Monsoon trough made the briefest of appearances on the BOM 4 Day Forecast while Cempaka / Dahlia were doing their thing for about 3 days, then headed back up north. From the notes I've been keeping for the last three wet season onsets it was the earliest by about a fortnight. I'll check my computer at home tonight and update this post with what the actual dates were. It's a not a record of the monsoon trough impacting Aus, just the first appearance it makes on the Bom 4 Day Forecast maps. I've also kept notes on the first sort of 'buildup' on the town hills and it was earlier this year than the past three years. Really wish I'd started keeping these records 10 years ago when I first really started to get into the weather.

Totally not opposed to being stuck in Broome if Sandfire gets cut off though! Haha laugh
