Southern Hemisphere winter now gone. Hello spring.

Stuck pattern will give Victoria and Tasmania a long cool spell, even  snow on high ground.  But here will stay in a warm flow the whole time.  It's the SSW lottery as coined by a poster on a NZ weather forum. I recorded 29.9C at home last Saturday and it's been well above average since, and looks set to continue till the end of next week, even with some rain at times.

(Don't laugh, Australians) but there's talk of a "heatwave" having occurred in the Inland and eastern parts of NZ since last Saturday, with highs more than 5 degrees above average every day since. We've had mid to late twenties here for quite a number of days now. Temps dropping this weekend before above average highs next week again. Great kickstarter for the palms I'm growing.

We didn’t even reach 19C yesterday while Perth was in the 30s. Most of the day was a drissling affair with temps sitting around 15 16C. Great for Juania.

Stuck pattern will break next week with temps forecast around 27C by Wednesday.

November saw temperatures getting back close to normal but rainfall has been below average. "Probability of rain" doesn't always translate into rain.

November2019
Average maximum 36.6
Average minimum 24.3
Rainfall 167.4mm so far this wet season (two months), 80% of average.

The Indian Ocean Dipole still remains strongly positive although it has been weakening a little. While it stays positive the monsoon will take its time getting here.

Well spring is technically gone but yesterday we hit 34C then had rain and thunderstorms early in the evening which lit up some bushfires but it’s a humid still warm cloudy morning this morning. Awesome weather for palm growth. Everything is damp. More thunderstorms coming after a top of 29C today.

It's not quite time to say goodbye to winter 2019, because I have some photos from Canberra in August 2019. This snowfall was at Mount Ainslie which overlooks Canberra and is only 843 metres asl; an unusually low snowfall.

Contrast this with the snow on the Brindabella Ranges at 1,400m, which as you can see is still below the treeline.

Here are some more photos from 1,400m, including an acacia in flower:
