Tyrone Posted May 10, 2009 Report Share Posted May 10, 2009 Coning Macrozamia reidlii. Also a view back to Perth from the hills. Best regards Tyrone to me this is very interesting, i think before that perth is desert similiar to my area. your temperatues of the ocean must be much more higher to have this type of vegetations, your area is very green with trees ! if you see in the southurn hemisphere vegetations in areas of 32 south in africa and south america, the vegetations are similiar to my area in 32 north, west side of continent, but not in australia. Cristobal, I think the difference is due to our rainfall. We average 870mm a year with 180mm a month for every month of winter. Also our ocean temps do have a moderating effect on the winter temps. Ocean temps mid winter run at 18-20C usually, but can sometimes be as high as 22C. The cold air in the cold fronts will form rain when it comes in contact with the relatively warm ocean, so that is maybe one reason why we get quite a bit of rainfall, even though at 32S we should start to be in the arid zone. 400km north at 29S the rainfall is only 300mm a year and the flora looks more like So Cal or northern Mexico. Best regards Tyrone Millbrook, "Kinjarling" Noongar word meaning "Place of Rain", Rainbow Coast, Western Australia 35S. Warm temperate. Csb Koeppen Climate classification. Cool nights all year round.
