Does look rather warm up your way, judging from the Airport temps. Mostly 30's since mid Dec. Luckily no 40's like last summer.

Not as hot as last year (which was an absolutely horrendous time) but still too hot with no regular cool downs.

Dry as can be too.

The climate here is much warmer and drier now than when I first lived here in the early 80's.

It's having every day for about 15 days above 30 is what hurts. The house just gets warmer and warmer.

January is supposed to average 28.3 max here.
We had 21 days 30 or above
Only 7 days below average, the others were just below 30.

Pretty wild in Launnie this morning, strong winds, driving rain, quite a bit of close lightning and heavy thunder. Power flicking a lot.

40mm in the gauge this morning. 36mm yesterday. 127mm for the week!

Have had hail on and off for the last 3 days now.

Water tanks are both overflowing which is great, considering March can be one of our driest months over here. No water rationing this year. smile
