Southerly change came through around 6am this morning, still very humid along the coast. There is a strong smell of rain, it smells nice and refreshing, but its just a very fine mist falling. Radar doesn't look real promising at all.

Still really sticky out here, a min of about 18.

A couple of spits earlier this morning.

As with most years, by end of Jan I'm "over it" smile

4 weeks till end of Feb, then we can start to expect a gradual cooling of the nights or at least the general absence of warm nights smile

Don't mind warm days if the nights are ok. smile

Change certainly not here yet.

Hay Homer - even WR is starting to sound a little like us now about humidity etc grin

Hottest month on record in Penrith, avg was 35.1c. Broke the old record by 1.2c!

1.2c!

That is absolute madness, especially when you consider the old record was only from Jan 2017. Also had the hottest day on record (47.3c) and without digging back i reckon it'd have to be the most days >40 (7) and most days >35 (18).

Oh that's after breaking the December monthly record as well as the December daily max.

So i guess if Feb is somewhere close to average it should be the hottest summer on record out this way.

Welp not only did this southerly not bring any decent rain, It has ruined our chances of seeing the lunar eclipse tonight.

At least the awful humid weather streak has been broken i guess.

Reasonably cool day today, however the humidity is still sitting around 80%. I could smell rain last night but the forecast of showers today doesn't seem like it will eventuate unfortunately.

I still think we are in with a chance, the air is from the southern ocean and rather dry.

Prob significant for current site. But maybe not so much for all of Sydney itself. But I guess some number crunching by Blair will indicate the basin wide story as far as records go.
Regardless. Sure has been hot

I expect to see this nonsense weather in May not now. Here's hoping for a looong Indian Summer to balance it out.

Ice cream vendors warning is in effect until further notice. Please contact your insurer for any business disruption claims. evillaugh

Haven't done an extensive search yet, but the site we use as the long-term benchmark for western Sydney is Richmond, which will also break its January 2017 record (although not by as much as Penrith).

Certainly one for the record books at some Sydney sites for Jan. Prob a lot of other places in the SE of continent too. Thanx for info bout Richmond Blair.

Still overcast here. Dry.
Nobbys registering 0.2 mm. Only other places recording any precip in the Hunter grouping of Latest obs are Gosford and Mangrove Mtn. Not even a mil at either sites.

I'm not sure what the models say but there is an enormous amount of cloud over the country atm so this I would suspect should see a cooler few weeks ahead due to lack of inland heating.
It might just get us through February without any of the extreme heat we have seen of late.
I'm fine with some heat in general. It's summer after all.
But none of this prolonged heatwave [censored] like we have dealt with in January.

Looking back when the BOM had released their outlook for Jan in about Dec my area was supposed to exceed the outlook to about 100-130mm. But now at the end of the month the two observation stations that i live near have recorded 12.6mm(Bankstown) and 22.2 (Holsworthy). What a let down.

Rather brisk.
You could be right about reduced heat for Feb due to cloud cover Homer. As far as the Kimberley and Pilbara being taken out of the heat generation equation for the moment. Cloud over Simpson helpful as well. I think the heat this Jan has been drawn from the Simpson and not from WA , which was the source of Jan 2013 heat if memory serves me correctly

It could be a cooler Feb, but there isn't much on the horizon for rainfall for the first week or so unfortunately. And the p1ss poor storm season continues!!
