    Early morning glow.


    Southerly flow bringing smoke from Washington State fires- August 11, 2014. Very Hot Day!!

    Thermally induced trough or just plain smoke? Tuesday evening 07:30, August 12, 2014. +14


   A few very light showers Wednesday morning, just enough to keep the dust down. August 13Th

    Sunrise August 14 Th, stratus layer which burned off as the day progressed.


    Looking South early Thursday morning.

 We had a trace of rain on August 13, .2 mm on August 14. Still dry!!


For the forecast, more of the same, a mix of sun and cloud with the chance of some showers. Dry warmer weather likely for Sunday into Monday. Still some inconsistency in the models, we certainly missed out on any significant precipitation. An upper trough is in the making for Wednesday into Thursday with cooler temperatures and more cloud.




    Satellite image from Thursday at 17:00 Hrs.

    Big picture looks like more sun and cloud with the odd shower.
