Another icy night in QLD, NT

Another icy night in QLD, NT

Minimum temperatures were below normal across the whole of QLD and the NT as well as the eastern half of WA this morning as a second wave of cold, dry southern air swept into the tropics. In SE and Far North QLD and around the base of the NT Top End, minima were 8 to 11 below the average, with the most unusual lows being recorded in the tropics. Ingham, south of Cairns, had a minimum of 5.4, just 0.2 shy of a 33 year record. Te Kowai, just west of Mackay, reported a minimum temp for the past 3 days of 1.0 which probably occurred this morning. That's colder than any June minimum since at least 1965 and not far off their all time low of -1.1 in 95 years of records. Proserpine Airport reported the nation's greatest negative departure with its reading of 1.3 some 11.4 below average.

In the southeast, Warwick recorded the state's lowest minimum of -6.9. This beat the previous lowest for the new AWS in the past 5 years, but also was lower than the -6.6 June record set in the 24 years up to 1994 at the Dragon Street station. Prior to that, the old Hermitage site near the present AWS set a record June low of -10.6 in 1965. Oakey Aero, with 31 years of record, was 1.1 above the previous June coldest with a low of -5.6. Farther north, Town of 1770, on the coast 75km ESE of Gladstone, set a new June record of 6.8 in 16 years of observations. Amberley Airport, west of Brisbane, recorded -3.3, 10.3 below average. Several of the automatic weather stations that came online in 1997 -- Port Macquarie, Gold Coast Seaway and Yeppoon -- also recorded their coldest June temperatures.
