Weather, Climate and Site News

Australia Warm weather spreads south in WA. The hot weather that usually develops in spring in the far north of WA has started early this season, with the 40° mark being reached three times already - 40.2 at Fitzroy Crossing on the 4th, 40.0 at Wyndham on the 7th and 40.0 again at Kalumburu on the 23rd, all in the Kimberley. While these are September sizzlers, they're not that far above the September average, just 2 or 3°, but unusual for so early in the month.

However, that heat is being drawn south, and Sunday 23rd saw overnight minimum temperatures 6 to 9° above the September average through central and central southern WA while daytime maxima built to 8 to nearly 13 above the norm across most of the southern third of the state away from the coast. Kalgoorlie-Boulder Airport had the warmest night relative to average - 17.6° or 9.6 above, while Munglinup West, also in the Goldfields, sweated in a top of 32.5°, 12.7 above their September mean. Temperatures in parts of the state's SE rose into the mid 30s.

Australia Snow season second best in 14 years. Barring an unlikely late-season dump, the greatest depth of snow this winter measured by the Snowy Hydro at Spencer Creek, between Perisher Valley and Charlotte Pass, was 224.6cm on 22 August. in the past 14 seasons, only last year has seen a greater depth when a half-metre September snowfall gave an unusually late peak of 240.9cm on 20 September. The average greatest depth over the seasons from 1954 to 2017 is 197cm while the median is 186cm. Snowy Hydro measures the snow course every Thursday, and updates its full set of graphs promptly - rest your cursor on the trace for each weekly reading.
