    Yes, I guess spring hasn't left us yet. Nice clear photos . I expect the birds knew there was nothing to worry about.
    South of us have also had a problem but with drought despite the abundance of rain we have had this year. This link would explain it better

    Just tried it, Dawn & got the old "Web page unavailable" page. Then I tried http://www.iol.co.za/index & was able to get the front page with an index of their main stories. Wasn't able to see anything there about a drought but it did say there were big winds headed for Cape Town. Batten down what ever hatches you still have unbattened, Dawn!! :shock:

    Oh dear!! That would have been rather frightening. The weather back in May was as exciting as I want to get at the moment.

    One cyclone is enough for me & that was many years ago when we lived in NZ. Hope it won't get any worse for you.

    SNOW!!!!!!!!!! You've been having SNOW!!!!! Can understand the drought thing. NSW is still in a state of drought over a large area, even though there has been heaps of rain at times. Was a very dry winter.

    PS The link worked this time, just fine.

    Oh dear Dawn, do hope you get some good spring weather very soon. Spring can be so unpredictable, though, can't it???

    We had an unsettled day to start with, then it became sunny & pleasant. Supposed to be warmer tomorrow. After the stable weather patterns of winter, I find these unpredictable spring days make it harder to know what is going to happen. Keeps me unsettled!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    We are having a beautiful day today. Think the max temp will be around 30C (86F). There is a light NE seabreeze which is very pleasant but in not strong enough to blow your head off, as it normally is. :roll: Not bad for spring.

    All in all, a great day for

    Am very glad you have had some good weather, Dawn. You certainly deserve it. Here it is very warm again this morning. Think it will be warmer than yesterday, though thunderstorms have been forecast for later today.

    Might have to get out my little friend. I call him Hughie, after the yachties' weather god

    Well, our max temp for yesterday was a whopping 39C (103.2F) & that would been before lunch!!! This was, despite living by the ocean. No cooling seabreezes.

    The forecast strong southerly winds arrived early afternoon, but, all they did was to, seemingly, blow the hot air back. Also brought us high humidity.

    The promised thunderstorms & rain were wimps, too, as we only had a bit of thunder & a brief shower of rain.

    Oo yes very stormy look to those clouds. Those sea breezes are lovely aren't they!

    My thermometer registered 30 in the livingroom yesterday. So our weather is moving into summer. We are scheduled to have gale force winds today and tomorrow. So far its not galing just a bit gusty.

    Do hope the gale force winds didn't hit you, Dawn. One thing I hate, weatherwise, is strong winds.

    This morning it is very warm with temps already into the upper 20sC. There is a clear blue sky with some haze & the cooling NE seabreezes are yet to arrive. If they don't it will be extremely warm!!

    Had to give my back patio plants an early watering as they were drying out from the heat. No signs, as yet, of the NE seabreezes & it is after 10.30a.m. It is REALLY warm.

    Just checked the temp at our local volunteer coast guard's web site & it was 30.7C at 10a.m!!!

    Funny old day today. A really warm morning with a light breeze then a, supposedly, cool southerly hit this afternoon. Didn't do much to cool things down but just made the day look dull as it brought with a heavy haze which made the sky white. :roll: Nonetheless, we still had a max temp in the 30sC.

    It is 31.7C (89F) here even with a stiff NE seabreeze blowing. Imagine just how hot it would be if there was no breeze!! The temp will be much hotter a few kms inland.

    The max ended up being 33C (91.5F) even with the seabreeze. There is supposed to be thunderstorms tomorrow but they have been forecast for the past couple of days. Soooooooo, we shall see. :roll:

    Boy, is it hot today. We have had NNW breezes today which means the hot air from the deserts are blown our way. No cooling seabreezes. It has been very humid & at 3pm the temp was sitting at 34.8C (95F). Had to close the front patio's large floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door as all the was coming in was hot air. It now has the afternoon sun as well. Keep forgetti ng it is still only spring.

    It was 30C at 11 am & that is with daylight savings. So the "real"time would be 10am. Pretty warm for that time of the day.
