Might try and do these regularly for anyone interested:

Refer to this for explanation
Colour Forecast map for next 4 days

Forecasts for Western Australia:
In the north of the state, a surface trough stays stable stretching from the kimberley to the pilbara. Winds will generally be E in the morning followed by a humid N/NW breeze in the afternoon for the next few days with the possibility of showers and storms at all times. Temps in the high 30s with high humidity (as is the norm this time of year).

Further south in the Pilbara; temperatures are expected to begin in the low-mid 40s and slowly transition into a cloudier and more unstable pattern as the trough breaks up on the weekend provoking scattered showers and storms throughout the district. Despite the chance of rain temperatures will still be in the low 40s inland and the mid-high 30s near the coast.

In the Gascoyne district winds will be southerly for the next three days before slowly tending easterly or even north easterly with the arrival of the trough moving southwards. Temperatures will be in the low 40s inland but only the high 20s or low 30s on the coast.

South-West Land Division:
A weak cold front develops on Friday with cooler southerlies moving through by Thursday afternoon and persisting into saturday evening. Light showers may drift through accompanying the cold front on Friday as temperatures take a plunge into the low-mid 20s on friday before a quick bounce back for the weekend!

Wow, the ski area will be open continuous until next spring?

Temperatures should fall quickly now over temperate areas, finally autumn has arrived

No, the snow will be gone in a week - but a useful bit of publicity, and a bonus for skiers during the off season.

Temperatures don't fall too quickly in most of NZ - February to March in Motueka is only a 1.6C drop, and March can be the warmest month.

Averaged over North Is stations, March is 0.10C warmer than December - for the south, March is about 0.43C cooler. NZ average has March 0.19C cooler than December.

A return to some pretty warm days in the east in the coming week.

In February, Blenheim and Richmond logged 289 hrs sunshine, Appleby a couple of hours back. For Jan+Feb Richmond totalled 644 hours, Appleby a handful back. Even allowing for electronic "inflation", that tally needs to be recognised as a new record high for that 2-month period, correlating well with Nelson's record low rainfall (Aero site) for the same timespan. However, at the older city site Jan-Feb 1908 provided just 1.5mm, with nil in February. February 1908 remains as the driest month on record for the North Island.

How much do you estimate the inflation to be?

Is Appleby manual or electronic?

For that region I'm guessing 20-25 hours for each month Dec to Feb, so about 40-odd for Jan+Feb.

Appleby is electronic. Given that I think Nelson Aero site has deteriorated slightly and yet almost beat its alltime record in January, I think that supports a recognition of a record. NIWA is still doing some research and is also looking at some of the anomalies I have prodded them about.
