WA's coldest June night on record

29 Jun, 2010 12:56 PM

Hot-water-bottles were hot property over the weekend.

The cold June just got colder, with confirmation that the state has had its equal-coldest June night on record.

Bureau of Meteorology figures show the mercury plummeted to -6 degrees at Norseman Aerodrome in the early hours of Sunday, the same reading recorded at Collie in 2006.

It topped off a chilly three days at the recording station, with -4.7 degrees on Friday and -5.4 degrees on Saturday.

Norseman's aerodrome aside, other parts of the state also had a particularly chilly Sunday morning.

The town itself recorded -4.6 degrees, Southern Cross Airfield saw a temperature of 4.2 degrees, while at Hyden it got down to -3.5 degrees.

The sub-zero temperatures followed Perth's second-coldest night on record, with a minimum of -0.6 degrees on Saturday morning, 0.1 degrees above the 2006 low.

While temperatures are not forecast to drop to those levels in the next few days, clear skies and a lack of rain will keep them in the low single figures overnight.

I would like to hear how the global warming zealots explain this away; maybe it’s a penance for our objection to an obsequious fawning to their great new religion.
