You're experiencing a Perth summer. Time to get the water out and splash it around.

It's raining again. "Hello winter. Isn't it time you left."

Tyrone, have some friends holidaying down near Bunbury now. They said they saw a penguin swimming off shore. Other than that they were the only ones at the beach.

Continuing hot and dry here. Did a bit of a check of my weather station. Average maximum temp for September was 38.3, and the average for October is 39.9 so far. There is a possibility of rain on Monday, but generally there's too much dry air above us. Anything coming in with the sea breezes is sucked up into oblivion.

What spring ? Here we went from winter straight to summer !! The jacarandas normally flower here in mid november started in mid september this year. Now the flame trees are starting to bloom too. Filthy heat here, in the 30's most days, high 30s quite often. UGH ! Not a drop of rain either even though there were a few storm clouds around. I just live on a 600 sq metre dried arrangement at the moment.

No Jacaranda flowers here yet. They're late.

We've already exceeded our average yearly rainfall. A couple of dams are overflowing.

Peachy, I can relate to your "What Spring?" Quote, except we went straight from Winter to Winter. Next weekend in Secret Harbour we are expecting maximums of 17c for Saturday and Sunday.

Peachy, don't you wish you were back in Gove instead of stuck in Brisbane complaining about the miserable weather there.

That's the last of the rubbish for this year by the looks of it.

The lack of rain is starting wear a bit thin now...the temperatures are fine though!

It has only rained on one day since July...Spring is our dry period, but this is ridiculous!

It looks like the torture is finally coming to an end! Perth has a couple of days of 26c next week.

I don't remember such a long cold period, we normally start having some warm weather around Royal Show time, which has been and gone a couple of weeks ago.

We've finally started getting storms and temps are only getting to about 36 to 38 now with cloud cover. Here's some links to photos taken by some of the locals last night.

Very speccy indeed. I can't wait to see them myself in about 3 weeks.

On Monday a high looks like moving into the vicinity of the Bight instead of sitting out off the west coast. More of a summer pattern instead of a winter "hang off the coast and let us get battered by westerly winds and rain" pattern.

I'm just doing a job at a garden that I installed a tropical garden a few years back with a big Jacaranda in it. The Jacaranda loses it's leaves in the cool weather letting the light through. Normally by now it's full of bloom. At present it looks almost dead with not a leaf until you get right up close and can see the tiny new growth. I'm hoping that it gets it's act together quickly and provides more canopy as the tender stuff underneath may get fried when the heat returns soon. The UV is up but the heat isn't yet.

Back to highs in the teens tomorrow. Normally by now any max's in the teens would be long gone, not to be seen again at all until about May. Rain looks like it's back again too.

Was down in Albany on the weekend. The rain started on Friday night and didn't stop until Sunday morning. On Saturday the temperature hovered around 11C!!!!!! Sunday was barely warmer at around 13-14C. Got back to Perth last night around 8pm and it was a balmy 16C.

Whoa!!! 1200mm? I first read it as 120mm. Thats nuts.

I dont want to hype this up too much for my fellow se qlders, but the ever so accurate bom are talking of not 'a few showers' but 'a few storms and showers as of thurs!!! And even the days after are meant to be wet! Im a little excited

We've had a couple of nice warm days, the nights are pretty cold, but beggars can't be chooses!

I think the dodgy weather is now gone and some nice warm weather is just around the corner.

32C and thunderstorms on Thursday. The weather has now switched like someone has just flicked that switch.

34C next Wednesday. The leafless Jacarandas wont know what's going on.

Peter, nice garden. The close proximity to the cold ocean winds have hurt your Carpy. Further inland away from the salty cold gales, they seem to do better. There are a few around the place which grow nicely and fruit. In South Perth there is even an Adonidia that is always flowering. Had to do a double take when I first saw it.

Tyrone, The Carpy is in the worst position possible for me, it takes the first hit of wind, I am in the process of replanting that section of the garden and planting Howea, Chatham and Hedyscepe(wink,wink). On my verge I have planted Phoenix Canariensis and when they grow a little more, will help to block some wind. For the moment the Carpy stays, it will look good in a couple of months.

I replaced a double planted Bangalow with these 2 Howea, the Bangalows were torn to pieces. These Howea were bought from Tonys Nursery at $80 a pop, a little neglected, but a bargain!

Howeas rule along the coast. Would love to plant a Howea forest one day.
