Cooler today, hot tomorrow, hotter Wednesday

Some images to tell a story…With more cloud cover it was cooler today:

Looking much warmer for tomorrow (Tuesday):

Wednesday is looking really hot:

The big difference between today and Wednesday is the dew point – how humid it is. Close to the coast a sea breeze will likely keep humidity levels up, but you won’t need to go far inland, likely only to the valleys, perhaps Dorrigo, to see the westerly winds push through and lower dew points dramatically. Compare the two images below – dew point for today (left) and for Wednesday (right):

Combine the high temperatures, westerly winds and low humidity levels and we will likely see raised fire danger levels through the day. What we need is some rain…image below shows total forecast between now and Wednesday:

Not much, though any rain we do see will likely come from storms. Focus on the hills once again, though a chance tomorrow that we will see more in the way of showers and storms make it closer to the coast. Fingers crossed!

The good news? Thursday is looking much cooler 🙂
