We have had showers during the night but nice in the day time.  It was 23C today but very humid.  Yuck.

4AM and 28C here...A big cloud over our area all night and no rain.

Cheers, Bobj.

I'll put my hand up to being a total wuss during humid weather.  Hate it!!!

I've reached the stage now where I'm looking forward to autumn.  It's supposed to reach 26C in Devonport today.  I've already been for a long walk - seen to the horses - done a bit in the garden and been shopping.  I won't go for another walk until the evening.   I'm off to the movies and lunch with a friend soon.  Air conditioning thrown in.  😄

Love it, @Toots.
It’s a 100 km round trip for us to see a movie, suffice to say, we just wait for a good film to come up on tv. Just had 2 new air con units installed last week!  Can take any heat, but the humidity does get a teensy bit too much...

Cheers, Bobj.

A few weeks and we’ll be back to looking after a horse.  We moved a cupboard to the new place on Sunday, and I’m still feeling it.   I’ll be doing a lot less this time around, just not up to it now

why? 34 degrees is a nightmare, used to hate it. Give me those low temps any time. 

That 's about my perfect temp for WA. Brilliant for a few hours at the beach, swimming, ski paddling boarding. Water is a great temperature too, swim for ages without feeling cold.

Looking forward to autumn coming soon-ish. For the mean time, I’d like to share this video I’ve uploaded last night (sorry for hijacking this thread!). Moved to Aus 2 years ago and I find the weather one of the more interesting aspects of living here:

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

The weather here has been very calm - no flooding   ................  warm sunny days and if it does rain, it's during the night.

Really Tonyman? I would be happy for this all year round. Yesterday was a bit too humid but I love summer. Winters are pretty good too, cools down enough to get a bit more running and biking in.

I drove down to Neilsen Park last night and was shocked to see a sign which said "Shark Net Damaged"(by last weekend's storms), so, despite there being other people in the water, I drove to Watsons Bay where (I hope) the shark net is better made. Actually, I know that the one at Watsons Bay (or is it "Watson's?") is a permanent one whereas Neilsen Park's is taken down from May to October. The beach at NP is called Shark Bay mind.

I'm becoming ever more wimpy as I get older as I retreated from Clovelly last week because I thought the water was too rough, and Bronte too crowded. I went to Neilsen Park that night which is an extra few kilometres from Bronte, via Bondi Jn where I always get lost.

Hot here today, when i was leaving work at 4pm the car said 36 degrees...It looks so dry you wouldnt even know we had been flooded in yesterday, unless you went down to the river and saw the massive height rise.

Yes it was quite bad tbh. 

Lots of roof and fence contractors did very well out of it. (And tree surgeons)

Humidity levels I haven’t seen here before.  It’s currently 80%, over four times normal.  I was just up the road in Murrumbateman yesterday afternoon, and  it was humid as.  I see it’s currently 93%, crazy high for the region.

@Bulya,  currently 88%  here, but only ‘cos we just recorded 129 mm (5 “). And still raining. The orchids love the warmth and humidity...

24 hours to 6 o’clock this morning, we had 181 mm rain.(7”)

That is 12 inches in 2 days. The local creek is flooding and people can’t get to work.

Cheers, Bobj.

We could do with the rain, but you can keep the humidity

So cool on the Sunshine Coast at 27’ that we had a roast last night, seemed like the right thing to have to take warm us up.

It was 22C here yesterday and we all went swimming.  25C is hot enough for me.  Funny how we all prefer different temperatures.  That's why you prefer to live where you live and I prefer cooler Tassie.
