Winter in the south

Recommended Posts

Tyrone

It's been a cold couple of days this weekend. Yesterday was fine and sunny, starting around 3C with a cold southerly breeze and not quite making 15C, then today a min of 2.6C and just getting over 15C with a cloudy day in the arvo. This is quite cold for Perth. Luckily we're back up to 20C and a bit more by the end of the week and hopefully for most of next week. I think this weekend winter bottomed out and we're on the way out of winter towards spring.

Best regards

Tyrone

Hey Ty

I reckon we may still get a few suprises since the worlds weather is properly in the toilet! I hope not but I reckon August might be nasty...

I sure hope not. We'll just have to wait and see though. We're not out of the woods yet, but it's nice to look at any light at the end of the tunnel provided it's not another train. :blink:

Wed, Thurs, and Friday are predicted to be frosty. Guess whom won't be sleeping well for the next few nights ? I filled the benches and the bathroom and the kitchen with everything I could carry and tomorrow I will bring in anything I can drag. Most of the things in the ground are still sending up new spears etc, since all the rain and the recent warm spell, so I will try to cover anything coverable and just hope for the best. So far the forecast hasn't predicted anything in the minuses, which are the danger zones for my place, but then they arent always very accurate with the overnight temps anyhow so I just have to live in hope.

A very powerful high will cover the entire south of the continent way up into the tropics hence the cold nights. In the west we are already right under the high. It will take over a week for the high to clear.

Ari,

If it got down to 12 C here there would be frozen dead bodies lining the streets.

Michael,

Here too... there are literally heaps of Victorian & Tasmanian on the road this time of the year. I guess I can't blame them for wanting to be here....lol.

Don,

We are not quite equatorial, so we still get cold (freezing for us...) nights... Besides, we are 35km inland.

Regards, Ari :)

Yesterday we had a clear sky and 22C. A Brisbane winters day. A bit cold at night and down to 3.8C, but going for low twenties today as well. It so blue and bright outside and just reminds me of a July Brisbane day from when I was over there in 07. We're meant to have a spell of this low twenties weather until Wed night when a cold front moves through and we get rain again. Nights will be warmer though.

Only 4 weeks of winter to go. We're 67% done with winter. :)

Best regards

Garden really needs some rain, the hose just isnt cutting it anymore and palms are looking a little ratty.

Cheers

The rains back again. After clear days around 21C, we're to have a bit of rain but still be around 20, 21C, before dropping back to high teens. Tonight is forecast to be a warm and rainy 13C. It makes a change from the clear nights and 4C we've been having.

Tyrone,

Spring is sprung here I think. 3 nights in a row without the heating. Today I had to use the a/c in the car. The sun is getting a bit of a bite into it. (as my burnt nose will testify) and most of the palms have sent up or are starting to send up new spears. I have been on a planting rampage this week, its just so dry here that I was spending all my time hosing the potted plants. The ground has turned back into concrete so its chip away bits with the pick, flood, wait, chip away again. Many empty bags of compost, fertilizers and gypsum are piling up, as are the empty boxes of painkillers !! On the plus side I dont think I have ever had this many empty pots to refill.

At 6am today it is an extraordinary 22c in Sydney - 12 c above average. This is at Observatory Hill, near the Harbour Bridge.

Most of the inland suburbs have less remarkable readings from 10c to 15c.

Wow. Someone has really broken the weather machine now. That's warm to hot for winter at 33S. Expect anything this year weather wise. It could get bumpy. :(

After a week of steaming hot weather, an equally warm weekend too, monday night was so cold (2c) I had to get up and put on warm nightwear and a second doona. It also was the ruination of one of my Johannesteijmannia altifrons and my new Verschafelltia......will I ever get to grow one of those damned things ?? Tomorrow is supposed to be rain, I really hope so as its awfully dry here and I have spent half my days outside hand hosing and not actually acheiving anything.
