Summer time south of the equator

Recommended Posts

Could be some nice rain coming !!

Outlook : two low pressure systems meeting...

"A low pressure system is over northern New South Wales and a low pressure

trough is approaching from the west. Very humid and unstable conditions exist

over most of Victoria.

Heavy rain and isolated thunderstorms which may lead to flash flooding is

forecast for the Western, Wimmera, and Mallee this afternoon before extending

to the Northern Country, North Central and Central forecast districts later in

the day and tonight. General falls of 25 to 50mm are likely with some localised

falls above 75 mm likely." ^_^

I hope you get a huge downpour to fill your tanks.

We're meant to be getting rain on Sat and Sun with mid twenties which will be a nice change from dry 30C weather. It has been cooler this week though. It beats 40C weather that's for sure.

Best regards

A cyclone is ok, as long as it is far enough away... just to bring rain, not the wind. No Tyrone, I just want RAIN RAIN RAIN!! Have you ever been to Darwin when it is just HOT and HUMID without rain?? Rain brings heaven to earth in Darwin... it drops the temperature to about 10deg, instant cooling and makes everything so green and lush!!

Gotta get me to Darwin one day Ari. I was talking to my wife today about driving up your way to check it out soon. We both need a break. We've just been going flat out lately.

33C today before a rainy 24C tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the change. Maybe my Heliconia's will start flowering. Next week looks like a humid week of 19C min - 32C max.

It won't be Easter as I'll still be flat out then. Probably in winter some time if we come.

A cooler day today of 25,26C and light rain tonight before a rainy start to a 27C day tomorrow. A beautiful weekend.

We have had over 200mm (8") of rain since yesterday morning...most of it was last night...Rain is still torrential this morning, but not as bad as last night. The garden doesn't need watering anymore!

Here is the creek this morning, after it had peaked during the night.

What a beautiful view that is mate. Good for you. Your plants will be loving it. :)

Here we didn't get any rain overnight. Just a heavy dew, which the plants would have loved. I woke up to 20C, dead still and humid this morning with big white fluffy clouds surrounded by blue sky. Beautiful.

Our record for days without rain is 83. We're at 80 roughly with no rain in sight. We'll smash the record I think. 27C and humid today then back to low thirties. I'd love some rain though. I'll have to be content making my own. :)

Still drizzling here, but we ended up receiving 275mm or 11 " in the last 24 hours. That will do nicely for the next week or two!

The rain continues here. In the south the city of São Paulo is a complete mess. On Friday it marked 45 days of rain. The city is flooded all over the place and the reservoirs which supply the water are over flowing. Since about 22 million people live in the São Paulo metro area you can imagine the problems. Traffic is bad on a good day. With this it is a mess.

Here is the rainy day over the river yesterday here in Mananus

I was on the river going to my country place through the bridge project. There is a thread I posted on Ohana nui about this project.

Very humid and muggy today and 34C. Dewpoints are up around 19-20C at 10.30pm. Large thunder clouds formed inland today with thunderstorm warnings issued for the inland, and hail warnings issued. No rain here though and by the looks of the radar, Esperance on the south coast got some good heavy falls. Humid and cloudy and 28C tomorrow, then low to mid thirties for the next week peaking at 37C. Nights around 18-21C for the same period. Garden is going nuts.

Woke up to 21C and a cloud forest outside. It must have been 100% RH in the garden as it was drizzling very lightly. If you walked around a bit you could feel yourself getting moist. All the leaves were wet. Well if you can't get rain, 100% humidity is not too bad. Palms have grown overnight, spears are opening everywhere and my Dypsis plumosa seeds have doubled in size overnight. I love these dead still misty mornings. I wish we had more of them.

By lunch time it's warmed up a couple of degrees, but it's still cloudy and humid with persistent very light drizzle. It's really pleasant mild humid weather. The palms are going to love it today. I wonder if we'll make 28C.

Another humid and cloudy 21C min night has gone by. Nothing but cloud and moisture outside now with approx 90%RH. I could get used to this. Going for 31C today. It may be a muggy day when it warms up.

Boy was it humid today. We didn't see the sun until 3pm when the thick gloom lifted after a sea breeze. It was very sticky with dewpoints around 19,20C and mid twenties. From the city you couldn't see the hills, and the whole city was covered in a thick humid haze. It's strange weather when Perth is stuck in the clouds.

Hey... this is not just the 'weather' thread... This is also where we have been catching up :) :). BTW, very nice beaks... They do get long.. the longer they are in the ground, the longer the 'beaks' get, providing they are well fed and watered. I love my heliconias... hopefully more will flower this year.

Yeah, this is a nice warm time of year here. It's reasonably stable by Feb too, with the odd humid day. By the afternoon there are usually some big cumulonimbus forming over the hills. On the odd occasion they come west and we get some thunder and rain. Not this year though. Yesterday it got to 31C but with dewpoints mainly around 16-18C. Working in it was tough though. I must have drunk about 5 litres of fluids and I was still dehydrated.

This is by no means meant with any disrespect, but we're in summer down here, and the other threads are all about cold damage, and how so and so saw 22F etc, and we simply don't want to get depressed in our "happy time" which is summer. Also I think us Aussies are reading the threads, but as we don't really know the US maybe feel a bit unqualified to get involved in discussions. Not me though, I'll blabber on to anyone, and get my head bitten every now and again, but it's all good. :D

Can't relate to the cold weather... really, BS... Our minimum is only 10 deg here and then it is only at night for about 2 days in a year... And I know it is sad... but Tyrone is right... it is too depressing.

BTW, missed out on the first line of monsoon storm this morning :angry: . But hopefully there is more to come!!! Come on rain!!!

My weather is basically so boring I get the feeling no one really pays attention. Not that they need to either. It is just one endless summer. Part of it with little to no rain, and the other raining nearly every day. It has been interesting watching the Brazilian national news about the heat spell down south in Rio. They have been having many 38 to 40 C days this summer. And, many people are complaining. Here we get 3 to 4 months of pretty much non stop 38 to 40 C days in the city every day. And, even in the rainy season the temperatures can get above 35 C if there is no rain. I guess it is what you are used to. Nobody here really thinks much of the heat. Life just goes on one day after another. And, it never gets cold.

Don, it is never boring when you have rain, IMO. It is only boring when it is sunny sunny and sunny... like Darwin in the dry season. Not looking forward to that in the next few months..

Had a few monsoonal showers today... It seems like everything dies on top of us... Oh well... As long as the garden has a little bit.

Ari,

You have a point. I was very tired of the dry season this year as it went on for at least 4 months with very little rain. I love the clouds during the rainy season. That is the towering build up clouds.

I just took this picture looking out from my company toward the in coming rain. You can see some Mauritias and Attaleas in the distance.

Don, I didn't know an equatorial climate would get 3 or 4 months of 38-40C. That's real hot. So my E precatoria can take very high temps with humidity. That is good to know.
