Pretty boring dry season as expected didn't get much of the good finishing rain that we sometimes get in Mid March/April and been dry for the last 7 weeks.

Just wish the two X factors would behave that is the mozzies which are persisting even down the beach and the day temps seem to be still fairly high hanging around the mid 30s.

At least its got a bit cooler at night....

Dry season conditions clicked right in now with a high in the bight and strong Easterlies blowing .

Broome had gusts up to 59km/hr and minimum yearly low of 14 deg only 9 deg 10 kms out of town at West Roebuck.

At least the strong winds have got rid of most of the mozzies...at last... yay..

The beach is amazing atm water temp around 25 and calm as a pond.

Personally I never wear them although some one got stung by a jellyfish a couple of weeks ago.

Had a run of hot still days for a few weeks ago and that is when they seem to be around the most, rare in the cooler waters.

These winds plus the receding sea temp will probably send them on their way .

Wind blowing a gale in some areas with the massive high in the bight .

E to ESE winds around the Kimberley have been between 60 - 80km/hr .

Roebuck Bay pretty rough this morning and lots of dusts being scuffed up with the wind around town.

Apparently the local Salmon love these conditions though especially around the Crab Creek area and surrounds.
