Tyrone Posted March 4, 2011 Report Share Posted March 4, 2011 Well, no one was going to put this up, so i thought I should. What's happening in your neck of the woods? Here it is still summer, but as Bob Dylan said "times they are a changin' " Still hot here, but March is warmer than December anyway, so nothing unusual there. Maybe rain tomorrow morning and a mild 29C. How delightful. The moisture that comes out of the air and sky is always welcome here. Even looks like a cold front may come within 1000km of us in a few days which is nice. We haven't seen one of those since about winter 2009. Here's a report on our heat spell, which reminds me. I should put some potash on my Heliconia rostratas this arvo. Maybe the heat and the rain and potash may give them some ideas to actually flower. Breaking Weather News - Hot days, warm nights almost over in Perth JOSH FISHER, 3 MARCH 2011 A relentless stretch of hot days and warm nights in Perth have broken all time records. The city has now seen 29 consecutive days of temperatures over 30 degrees, the longest stretch in the records, which started in 1897. The previous record was 25 days set back in 1988. The cause of this heat wave has been a combination of dry weather and a continual bombardment of warm easterly winds caused by high pressure systems constantly lingering over the Bight. Nights in Perth have stayed warm, now 18 consecutive nights above 20 degrees which is also an all time record. A slightly cooler change on the weekend will allow temperatures to dip a few degrees, maximums just below 30 and minimums below 20 degrees. But, it should warm up again later in the week. 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.
