Some recent unsettled Decembers may have exaggerated local impressions of that effect.
No, I agree it's little different. The difference to me is that it's low level cloud with very little wind, and feels quite heavy.

It's cloud I associate with this time of the year, more than other times. It's in sharp contrast to the bright sunshine at this time of the year, which might make it feel a bit glommier.

A hot day today with a maximum of 33C, and the forecast for the next 7 days is 36C, 33C, 32C, 34C, 37C, 38C and 33C (average max is 26C). If we do get 8 consecutive days above 30C it will be a new record for November.

There's a surprise, a new record for heat for Perffff. The last several summers were not enough?

I think I finally captured a photo of the elusive marine layer I keep hearing about. There was an unusual haze in the sky, that lacked the distinctive hue of Australian bush fire haze.

The dewpoint wasn't high, so I'm guessing this is marine layer, Quite unusual really, with several people commenting on it to me.

Was meant to be storms here the last 3 days, with the models going for widespread rainfall totals of 25-75mm. Instead, I got absolutely nothing on both Sunday and Monday, with the weak storms that formed to the west dissipating long before reaching here. Yesterday storms finally formed around here, but I got extremely unlucky and they all missed me. Without a doubt, this is the biggest FAIL I have ever experienced since I've been following the weather.

Of course, northern New South Wales had several days of very strong thunderstorms bringing widespread rain. I really want to move to somewhere like Grafton or Coffs Harbour some day, they get much better storms than anywhere in Queensland.

You have fallen victim to the Melbourne Effect.

After a nice 28 C on sunday the last three days have been well below average with temps more typical of early spring. Looks like decent temps for the long weekend (lows around 10 C, highs 20+ C) but sunshine could be scarce.

Already happened!
