Melbourne going for a min temp of 27 tonight and a max of 43 tommorrow, was 41 today there too. I'd say they have probably had a hotter summer than us so far.

Well it looks as though it wont be anywhere near as good as rain event as first thought though it does look fairly promising for storms for Perth from late tommorow arvo, with some showers as well. Totals looks like being around the 10mm mark for perth with the heavier falls nearer the SW capes.

Today is a great typical Perth summers day, nice and warm, low humidity and not a cloud in the sky, well maybe a few but nothing overhead, the only thing untypical is it looks as though we wont get a seabreeze, though the coast may get a weak one later.

And it has been a rare treat this summer!

Looking forward to a good swim at Cott after work, followed by fish and chips washed down with a chardonnay!

Hey Ya'll...I got too 33.8 today.

Some may be interested, that I have in the past few weeks installed a 1-wire Temp sensor. My normal Temp sensor is on the south side of the house, in shade.
The new 1-wire Temp sensor is 5m in altitude below my main sensor, and about 25m away. It is situated on the edge of 10 hectares of playing fields, which, on average gets a frost 5-10 times per winter.
It's kinda and experiment to see what the effect of altitude, all be it a small amount, and open space plays on Max and mainly min Temp. readings.

The Max on the 1-wire sensor so far seems to effected alot by the prevaling winds at the time. Here in Floreat, as is Swanbourne (the Swany station is only 2 mins drive from here) I have not had any huge max Temps yet........Hang on neither has Perth Metro!!!LOL :p Soo.....the "Oval Temp" as I call it, has not been too disimilar the normal station temp this summer. Winter Mins will be VERY interesting tho!

Hope we get some rain this week smile

You can view details of my station at http://weatherstation.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=IWAPERTH3

No "Oval Temps" on it yet.

Details on 1-wire sensors are here. www.hobby-boards.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=22

These are fantastic, easy to run, install, (Follow the "general installation and use" section) and very cost efective.

WA Seasonal Rainfall Outlook: probabilities for February to April 2006, issued 24th January 2006
50:50 chances for a wetter than average season
The chances of accumulating at least median rain during the late summer to mid-autumn period (February to April) are close to 50% across Western Australia, the Bureau of Meteorology announced today. The outlooks are based on relationships between Pacific and Indian Ocean temperatures and Australian rainfall. Recent ocean temperatures have not been sufficiently warmer or cooler than average to produce a strong bias in rainfall outlook odds.


For the February to April period, the chances of above median rainfall are between 50 and 60% over WA (see map).


WA Seasonal Temperature Outlook: probabilities for February to April 2006, issued 24th January 2006
50:50 chances for increased seasonal temperatures
Although the odds favour a warmer than average season in parts of northern Australia, in Western Australia the chances of exceeding the median maximum temperature for the February to April period are close to 50%, the Bureau of Meteorology announced today. The outlooks are based on relationships between Pacific and Indian Ocean temperatures and Australian rainfall. Recent ocean temperatures have not been sufficiently warmer or cooler than average to produce a strong bias in temperature outlook odds.

For the February to April period, the chances that seasonal maximum temperatures will be higher than the median are mostly between 45 and 55% across WA, the exceptions being the far north where the chances are a little over 55%, and the eastern interior where they drop below 45% (see map).

Vinny, I'd say Perth has a good chance of hitting 40, the NE'ly are in! Here in Gero yesterday the temp hit 40.1 and about 6pm last night got a nice storm that dumped around 12mm. Perth radar's looking very good ATM. Not sure Gero's in the firing line today though, winds already NW.

This summer Melbourne has had is very atypical - sometimes they go for 2-3 summers in a row without a single 40!

I clearly remember sitting at the MCG on Boxing Day 1993, when it rained until about 4pm, and the max temp was something like 12!

We've had 15mm here by 10pm, not far from Ocean Reef.

Nothing like the 60 odd they have had in Mandurah though!

U dont want it beleive me, after 4 days we had enough. U can only go to the beach so many times in extremes like that. By the second day the sun heat/dryness is to much and u cant even venture outside.
