    Monthly climate update is out.

    [​IMG]

    • December temperatures are likely to be warmer than average for southern Australia, while rainfall is likely to be above average across southeast Queensland and northeast NSW, parts of the interior and southwestern Australia.
    • The summer outlook indicates below-average rainfall is likely across the northwest and Cape York Peninsula, and wetter across parts of the east. The daytime temperature outlook is patchy, with warmer days likely in parts of the west and north, while parts of the southeast are likely to be cooler. Overnight temperatures are likely to be warmer across most of the country except the southeast.
    • Current climate influences include a combination of a strong El Niño in the Pacific, a decaying positive Indian Ocean Dipole, and very warm Indian Ocean temperatures. (See the climate influences section for more information).

    I dunno if it's cos of the hot weather but there's an explosion of flying ants tonight!
    Buggers are attracted to lights, land on the fly screens, shed their wings and crawl inside.
    Open a door and there's a squadron assault.
    Close the windows to avoid an invasion but no ventilation!
    Summer sucks!

    Was very nice to wake to this morning, Distant rumbling. Not much rain to speak of though, hardly enough to wet the ground.
    The 1am storm had some serious consistent light.

    Interesting how in greater Sydney it was mostly a quick whack and gone by dinner. Similar (though 6-10C less) to the Jan 2013 mega heat day (ie 48C). It too was a fairly quick peak before a fast plummet.

    Do these trough generated heatwave - with strong winds - usually suck up a southerly buster as part of the overall system?

    There's a chance. EC suggests not quite cold enough, but GFS looks a little cooler.

    Very brief warm spell tomorrow before a strong change, then some nice cool showery weather until the end of the week. Not complaining.
