Another cold night in northern QLD, NT, WA
Cold and foggy in southern NSW

Another cold night in northern QLD, NT, WA

Overnight temperatures were yet again well below normal across most of tropical Australia. The coldest areas this morning, relative to normal, lay in a broken band from north QLD through central northern NT to the WA Kimberley. At the base of Cape York Peninsula, Richmond recorded a minimum of 1.0 while Georgetown recorded 1.5 at the Airport and 2.0 in town, all between 9 and 11 below average. To the west and just 170km from the Gulf of Carpentaria, Croydon recorded 5.2 yesterday morning and 5.0 this morning, around 10 below. Farther west again, across the NT/QLD border and only 40km from the Gulf, Borroloola's minimum was 3.9, 8 below.

Cold and foggy in southern NSW

Fog continued into the late morning or early afternoon across parts of the Southern Tablelands, SW Slopes and eastern Riverina today keeping temperatures well below average. A 1033hPa High sat over the area today, creating a temperature inversion that trapped not only night-time cold air but also abundant moisture from the weekend rain. Light winds were strong enough to stir this moisture into fog rather than allow dew to form, resulting in deep fog that refused to burn off after the sun rose. It finally cleared at most Bureau reporting stations by midday, but at Corowa it continued through the day, with visibility at 3pm still only 300m and its maximum temperature of 8.0 the coldest, relative to normal, in the nation.
