I thought he was serious... i may have got him confused with that guy called SydneySider who is a bit of a right-wing loon. Anyhow, someone has to make up for rational thinking now Cyril is oversees!

As a general rule,any post that carries :stirthepot: at the end of it should not be taken too seriously.
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong

I thought that meant stirring the pot, as in actually stirring the pot because of its provocation.... I didnt realise it was sarcasm. Then again I am always behind internet-speak.

Can't blame you for being confused, there's a few people with SydneySomething names on the fourms, me, SydneySider, SydneySteve, probably a couple of others. And anyway, that global cooling thing was a joke, nothing to be taken seriously. (Although I do think the globe is cooling sometimes because we've had some $#!T cold weather recently)

Nice summer weather forecast in Perth for the next week (Max's around 28-31, Mins around 17-18) after the 3 days of 35+ and that dramatic storm.

Well we're currently running 6C or so below average for December and I'm lovin' it! :cloudnine: Only a matter of time before the oppressive heat returns down here, ergo, warm enough to wear short sleeves in Lithgovia.

Under a week to Christmas and the weather's rainy and cool. Never thought i'd see something like it this side of the hemisphere, but there you go.

Residents across the Pilbara endured a second day of searing heat today, with Onslow Airport recording a top of 49.2C - its hottest day ever.

That would've been for Adelaide Airport, which is about a kilometre away from the Gulf St Vincent coastline. In Kent Town, just east of the CBD, it reached 41.6°C.

Melbourne, along with Adelaide, will be copping the heat tomorrow, with maximum temp forecasting to reach 40°C. After a cool December, Sydney will warm up this week, with the western suburbs expected to reach as high as 36°C on Wednesday (31°C in the CBD & coastal suburbs). In Canberra, it will reach 35°C tomorrow & Tuesday.

Been having mid-20's here and sunny skies in Devonport so will be a bit of a shock going to Adelaide tomorrow for 40 degrees! It's nudged that a couple of times in Hobart and I've experienced it in Sydney where it was 40+ for three days although that felt like nothing compared to the hotter days in Tasmania.

Meanwhile, in Canberra, the long-term rainfall average for March is 40.0mm - so far this month we've had 221.8mm (and it hasn't rained today)

Looking at the BOM website, I noticed you use the Tuggeranong AWS for the month-to-date rainfall instead of Canberra Airport. That is understandable, considering that Tuggeranong is closer to the Brindabella Mountains than the Airport is. Also, when looking for the long-term climate data for Canberra on the BOM site, the Tuggeranong station is the only one that is still collecting data, as the Canberra Airport one that was collecting data since 1939, closed in December 2010.

As for the weather in the coming days in Sydney, it will cool down to 21°C in the western suburbs on Wednesday, which will be triggered by heavy showers & southerly winds. After that, it will generally be around the mid-20s. :)

At least the heat we are getting now in Perth isn't that horrid humid heat we were stuck with jan/feb. Much drier now and the nights are cooling a lot quicker then they have been.
