Temps up into the high 30s this week in Broome a temporary dry season spell ...me thinks.
Dry air moving in but will get squeezed out by some a monsoonal flow coming in by next Wednesday.

After a couple of weeks of dry conditions it was.nice to get 15mms yesterday to help the garden along.

Rained for about 4hours but started off fairly light but it was a good soaking especially since soil already retained good moisture from last rain two weeks ago.

Rain tapering off a bit now should be more to come especially in the Pilbara once the trough gets better established later today and drags in some more moisture from the decaying low off the coast.

Not much rain yesterday only noticeable falls were on the Dampier Peninsular with Country Downs recording 31mms.

Brewed up after nicely after lunch on the other side of the Roebuck Bay here but the localised winds sheared the TSs to bits by late arvo.
