Sadly it seems were stuck in an El Nino /Modoki dry phase, and often these things last 7-10 years, so get used to it I reckon.

As the wind gusts in from the sea, it's bringing light showers on and off again tonight. It's not a lot but it's nice to hear it on the roof.

Just a shame it's only on the coastal fringe and not going much inland. Rocky I assume is not even getting a drop.

What has been differant also this summer was the extreme lack of morning dew.

It has been that dry not even dew can form.

What's causing the SE winds to actually bring scattered on and off showers to Yeppoon the last few days, because all summer we have had SE winds and barely any rain from it , so what is different ?

Thursday is up to 35 deg but it's only for 1 day and then back to the previous pattern again.

I wonder what May this year is going to be like, last year it was quite cool at nights early in the season. We didn't have much rain over the previous summer except for 1 month (Feb last year) similar to how the just gone summer is going.. (December just gone was the only wet month)

I always thought if we didn't get enough rain the atmosphere would stay warm/ocean etc and then you end up with a warmer than normal winter. Wheras with lots of rain the heat removed somewhat before winter arrives.

Then again if it is dry into May , dryer air means low humidity means cooler nights I think...

Two years ago the remnants of a cyclone hit. It did not come from a trough line.

Only thing GFS gets right is rain.

It has predicted us nothing for months, and it is what we get.

Yeah it does over exaggerate temps . I remember a couple of weeks back it had Rocky getting 43/44 deg but Rocky got 38 deg .

At least the wind on the coast finally has settled down and isn't gusting like crazy.
