I was at work in Port, nothing but rain. Pretty lame really. Great temperature drop though.

Can only imagine this will fuel tomorrows high temp to reach 38c early at airport. Suburbs might even break 40c again for the second time this month.

The temp is never too much of a problem on the beaches, it's the hot westerlies I can do without.
A nice 15kt Sth Easterly is the go. Straight in through the back sliding door and windows, and out the front ones. May be back to S.E. flow by Fri arvo.

Did any one else in Cairns get those sudden strong gusts? I woke up to pool full of leaves.

Gusty here now but not too bad in the night. Didn't drop below 33 inside or out last night, I got up and opened the front and back doors to at least get the air moving, then had a 2am shower to cool off abit, helped me get back to sleep.

Wish my house was all Feng Shui and all so it can let the breezes through, unfortunately the developer didn't have the elements mind with most homes here blocking the SE breeze, capturing the westerlies and becoming heat boxes which need aircon to cope with the conditions... bring back the old Qlder design!!

Only 35.5 degrees and 48% humidity.
A few small clouds, and a slight haze in the distance.

Last night around midnight it was 28, so not that hot.

Well its certainly a lovely afternoon on the Cassowary coast as well..

Thankfully its cooled off a bit from the 40.4c registered at Sth Johnstone mid afternoon...

Only 39c showing on the Thermometer here now...

At Sth Johnstone, if that 40.4c is correct it seems not only is it our highest recorded February temp but also equal with the highest recorded for any month along with 29th Dembember 1971....edit so I see it hit 40.5c so I guess hottest ever day officially recorded...

We have a couple of Canadians staying with us this week....when they left home a couple weeks ago they tell me it had been down to -40c ….that's quite a temperature differential...they sure do like to immerse themselves in our creek here...

I saw it hit 40.8 at one stage during the afternoon. Funny thing is, even how hot it is, the area out the back still has that wet creek (mud) smell to it, and it is still quite wet on the surface.

Maxed at 40.5'c here in BP today...nice to see another record broken :0

My house is wide open in a bid to dry and stop the spread of mold, taking advantage of this opportunity.

This Season has to be the craziest I've ever seen which almost loses its 'wow-factor' when seeing the temps so high, so often.

Interesting times... smile
