Warmth rose after cold front passed through

Wednesday morning was again gloomy under low cloud as a cold front slowly traversed the area. In the early afternoon the sky began to lighten and sunny periods lifted the temperature to a maximum of 20.3C being 1.6C above average. Late afternoon the wind veered into the northwest and north.

We have now had six successive dry days with the rainfall for September just 3.0mm and evaporation totalling 14mm.

The past night was cool under clearing skies allowing the thermometer to drop to 7.4C at 03.26 Thursday morning.

After dawn on Thursday the sun broke through scattered light cloud and began shining strongly. The high pressure is still influencing our weather so another dry day or two are possible. The wind has veered further, now very light and from the north east.
