Went up north with some mates last week, lovely time out in the heat (when we eventually got there).

August 31- 21.2/2.3 - sunny morning becoming cloudy, windy all day
September 1- 22.0/13.5, 2-3mm in the morning- cloudy morning becoming sunny in the afternoon.
September 2- 23.0/15.9 - cloudy becoming sunny as we moved north, couple of drizzle patches early
September 3- 24.2/10.4 - sunny
September 4- 27.3/12.6 - sunny, incredibly nice


August 31- Perth to Jurien Bay

Beach from the campsite


Spoiler


September 1- Jurien Bay to Kalbarri

Canola fields


Hillier and cloudier north of Geraldton


Lovely hilltop views as we got closer to Kalbarri, could see for miles at the top of these hills.



Kalbarri Viewwws


Kalbarri National Park:







A really chill Emu, didn't run off like they usually do but we didn't get too close. He's probably comfortable enough with people in the national park.

September 2- Kalbarri to a secret camping spot near Hamelin Pool

Wildflower carpet


Stromatolites, 3.5 billion year old ones.




September 3- secret spot to Denham

One of the local highways






Animals seen on day 4
Mulga Snake, part of the Brown Snake family...yeah you're dead if he bites you





September 4- Bushbashing around Francois-Peron National Park.






Two mixing currents, the colder and salty water to the east with the warmer, less salty ocean water.


A sunset to end the trip

First week was below normal here, a cool start of the spring. Even on 1st some stations of the metro area reported a max below 10ºC.
Now it's starting to warm up. Currently 17ºC and sunny at noon.

Given that we ( Top Enders ) are in the middle of that doldrum period of mindlessly similar weather day after day atm, I thought I would have a look at some sites on the Southern Coast, specifically the Great Australian Bight.
The combination of the huge continental landmass to the North and the Southern Ocean to the South gives the Nullabor region a unique climate in Australia. The variability and changeability of the weather is fair dinkum legendary.... with near 50c temps in the summer months and frosts that can happen at any time of the year. Anecdotally, regular travellers across the Nullabor can recall high 30's at say Ceduna, then a few hours west freezing temps at the Border Checkpoint. Been caught out myself a few times when running trucks across back in the day.....
So a few stats from the first 10 days of September and running West to East across the Nullabor ( same direction as the passage of the weather systems )
Date Eyre Eucla Nullabor Ceduna.
1/9 22.8-10.1 33.1-10.1 35.0-7.4 28.1-6.3
2/9 22.4-10.6 22.0-8.7 22.6-8.7 22.4-8.5
3/9 19.4- 2.7 20.6-8.6 20.5-5.3 19.5-6.2
4/9 21.1- -0.1 26.2-6.1 24.8-4.1 22.3-2.1
5/9 30.7-4.6 27.0-7.0 26.6-5.6 23.2-1.9
6/9 36.5-6.2 36.3-13.2 34.4-8.8 30.9-6.7
7/9 19.7-11.5 23.7-17.3 37.6-19.7 37.9-19.1
8/9 23.0-5.8 18.0-10.7 17.7-12.2 17.5-14.8
9.9 26.0-8.2 29.2-13.1 21.0-12.7 22.5-11.3
10/9 ? -14.5 40.1-12.4 38.6-8.6 35.0-14.5
And forecast max's today 11/9/20
26c 20c 22c 29c


Both Eucla and Nullabor set September record maximum temps yesterday
And as an aside, there has been a great deal of chat on world weather forums re the huge temp changes in the Mountain states in the last week ie Denver and Caspar with near 100f temps to freezing/snow two days later.
Well, Eyre is renowned for massive changes too ( never snow at sea level of course ) from a 32f on the 4th to a 97.7f on the 6th ! What an horrendous ( by Aussie standards ) climate .....lol !

Nice photos. These two reminds me the Empedrado river coast in Corrientes province here at some extent:

The first rains of the looming 'wet season' overnight in Darwin City and suburbs. I scored 9.4mm, the first measurable rain in the gauge since 2mm back in May.

It's spring but Ushuaia had maybe the biggest snowfall of the season today. Is not the first this thing happen.

Record breaking September rains in the driest part of the Australian Continent
"
A low pressure trough has brought significant rain to the usually very dry bordering region between South Australia, New South Wales, and Queensland.
In South Australia, in the 24 hours to 9am Saturday, 93mm of rain fell at Marree Ap (Northeast Pastoral). This is the station's highest daily total for any month in 22 years of recording, and single-handedly surpassing the highest September monthly total record of 64.6mm attained in 2010. Elsewhere in South Australia, 41mm fell at Woomera (Northwest Pastoral), making it the highest September daily total in 71 years of operation and also already exceeding the highest September monthly total. Nearby, 17.8mm fell at Tarcoola Ap (wettest September day in 15 years) and 24.6mm fell at Roxby Downs.


The rain began to fall across northwest NSW in the early hours of this morning. With most of the rain falling after midnight, some notable 24 hour rainfall totals to 9am Saturday include: 43mm at Tibooburra Ap (Upper Western), which makes it the wettest day in 4 years and wettest September day in 22 years for the station. Other locations in the Upper Western district include 17mm at Wanaaring (wettest September day since 2016), 22mm at Smithville and 21mm at Winnathee.
The rain also spread north into southwest Queensland, 24 hour rainfall totals to 9am this morning in the Channel Country district include: 51mm at Ballera, making it the wettest September day at the station (14 years on record), 31mm at Windorah and 19mm at Boulia.
While the bulk of the rain expected for South Australia has fallen, western and central parts of NSW and Queensland can expect further rainfall this afternoon before skies dry up in the evening and into Sunday morning."

You haven’t had a normal wet season since 2018 right?
