    Correct me if I'm wrong but I saw on Facebook there was some light frost near Kurrimine Beach the other day. I'm in Mareeba watching speedway tonight and expecting it to be a bit chilly.

    Yeah, I saw that as well, in the cane furrows. I follow the Atherton/Mareeba weather FB pages as I sometimes do work on the tablelands.

    Hopefully this thread livens up a bit when the wet season comes around.

    I’m sure of it. Best to post a link on the WZ tropics threads to direct people when the season comes, should they want to come over here.

    Yep, I'd imagine so. Not much happens here over winter. Once the heat and humidity from the north west ramps up we might actually have something to talk about.

    We just had a brief taste of the north winds on Friday and Saturday. Was certainly a touch warmer than normal with the planes landing over the city. Nice and cool for the coming week though. Don't think we'll see the same low temps that we saw mid-July, still nice to have to shut the window and maybe turn the fan down onto it's lowest setting.

    I'm doing relief work at the Mareeba branch the rest of this week. Promotional hoodies at work arrived just in time.

    Methinks that tomorrow's predicted minimum has been blown out of the water. You probably don't realise how cool the temperature is when you basically live in a concrete bunker that retains heat.

    I've had enough of this cold weather. Heading north off to Daintree and Cooktown tomorrow with my boy to get some sun.

    Few showers along the Wet Tropics coast over recent days.

    Almost surfable waves at Four Mile in Port Douglas with the strong south easters.

    Mission Beach / Innisfail / Cairns did ok, couple of inches, enough to wet the dust. Has been looking a browner shade of green in a number of place have seen in last couple weeks, pretty welcome by the land & locals.
