AUS: High temperatures continue

Warm nights and days continued across most of the continent as high pressure prevented any intrusion of colder southern air, except in far SW WA. Overnight, minimum temperatures were above average continent-wide, except for a few small coastal pockets. The minimum temperature anomaly map at right shows a broad area extending from central Australia into western NSW where minima were 8 to nearly 12C above the norm. White Cliffs and Tibooburra NSW both recorded lows of 16.8: this was 11.6 above average at White Cliffs, and at Tibooburra was just 0.5 below their 92-year record high June minimum.

A weak cool change that swept across SA and VIC yesterday kept temperatures in those states out of the record-setting league today, but Griffith NSW equalled its June maximum record of 25.0 set two days ago while Ali Curung NT set a new high with 33.3C. Some 24 stations scattered across the NT, SA, NSW and VIC came within a degree of their records, while in the WA Kimberley Halls Creek's top of 33.5 was just 0.3C shy of their 59-year June high.

VIC: First significant rain in 4 months in NW VIC

The first rain of any significance since early February fell across parts of western and NW VIC overnight, from a rainband ahead of a weakening cold front. The heaviest totals to 9am were 26.4 at St Arnaud, 24.2 at Trentham, 22.6 at Minyip and 22.0 at Daylesford.

WA: Low brings gales, rain

SW WA experienced wet windy weather today as a deepening low skirted its southern coastline. Wind gusted to 113km/h at Cape Leeuwin, 107 at Cape Naturaliste and 89 at Rottnest Island during the afternoon as the low deepened to a central pressure of 993hPa just SE of Albany at 10pm. Mount William, in the ranges 50km SE of Mandurah, recorded 42.4mm in the 24 hours to 9am while Pickering Brook, Karnet and Mundaring, all SE of Perth, recorded about 36mm. During the day, Bridgetown registered 30mm between 9am and 9pm. Significantly colder air swept into the South West, with Bickley in suburban Perth, Pemberton and Bridgetown only reaching maxima of 12C to 3pm.
