Wynnum Nth Jan 2018 Summary...

Very dry with only 12.2mm registered or only 8% of the monthly average. The lack of cloud also meant higher daytime temps, but also equally lower night time temps, resulting in the monthly temp. anomaly being only +0.1 deg C.

I have posted the three-year trends of climate anomalies to include January.
As usual, it will take me several days to edit a readable monthly report. Weekly temperature figures need another three days data anyway - I'll post on the 4th.
Days this January don't quite match those of last January:36.2 vs. 36.4. Nights, at 19.7, were a lot cooler than last year's record 21.0.

Interesting to see that retired weather man at Wynnum also got a sudden drop in temperature mid-month, with low dew points to match.
