Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Why did this forum die all of a sudden? If we lose this one where we people like me get weather insights from people way smarter than me? Why would anybody bother posting when an internet Nazi deletes whole posts.... :( .... Who wants to be told you are not allowed to have an opinion that differs f...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Bit of a warm one today...I have been finding excuses to stay inside I admit...might even have to get aircon one day or insulation at the very least... I see Cairns hit 39.1c today......which may well be the highest Feb temp ever recorded... according to weatherzone the previous highest was 38.9c 51...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Where has the wet season gone indeed...! We just spent a beautiful 2 days out at the reef....5-6 knots of wind maximum , beautiful sunset and just some light showers at dawn which made a sleep-in just divine with the pitter patter of raindrops on the roof..! Nice visibility in the water and some awe...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

So envious of you Daintree guys.. Tully sugar mill has recorded 57.8 mm this year so far.. Took the dogs down the swimming hole for a swim the other day and the wwoofer wouldn't even go in once the dogs stirred up the silt and leaves.....said it was too dirty... Say him intently studying the achtung...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

I cant remember when I last saw a mozzie, Dormant...not so green down here yet.. But all the forecasts are firming up for widespread monsoonal activity this week and beyond...looking good for the whole top end and east coast...just hope it does in fact materialise..the frogs have sure been going off...

Yeah that puts things in perspective Hickory and bunyip...…although down here we have not had any measurable rain yet.... We know that within the next few weeks we are assured of torrential rain but much of the rest of the country is frying with no relief at all in sight... My families farm in NW NS...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Some nice storms firing up out the back right now...it would be nice to get a bit more although I can feel the season has finally changed and we should see an end to the dry weather on the coast and tablelands

Such a relief...the humidity has been insane the last few days though..
