So almost one month later!!!

I have been so busy with study and social lately so yea there isn't much to post at all. We had quite few heavy squally monsoonal showers for past weeks including yesterday evening. I actually got caught in it!!!

Today is windy and the humidity is kinda dropping off, some early signs of dryness.

Very dry today! Max of 28 with breezy winds.

As last day of Autumn tomorrow, forecasts going for cool and dry at 14-25!! That just cool as like back in Ballina! But during the week it warms back up to 16-28 anyways.

Its warm days here in Ballina but now cold front coming in with some rain!!!

Going back to Townsville on Monday afternoon would be interesting. As forecasted between Gold Coast and Townsville.
Flight leaves at 2 30pm, temperature @ Goldy would be 21 degrees, then arriving in Townsville @ 4 30pm, temperature would be 27 degrees!!

Looks like some rain and that starting to early in Townsville already! No days below 24 degrees and lowest min was 13.4 degrees. It absolutely warm and tad wet dry season this year.

From today the humidity has kicked in to 60% with nice ESE to ENE winds. Next few days should be showery with mins of 20 and max of 28 degrees! Gotta love the tropics!
