Confused about WA’s spring weather? Here’s what is happening and what to expect in summer


La Niña is a complex weather pattern that occurs every few years, as a result of variations in ocean temperatures in the equatorial band of the Pacific Ocean, according to the National Ocean Service.

But the bureau says other factors such as cold fronts and associated low pressure systems, as well as tropical systems travelling south, were responsible for the late rainfall.

“It is unusual,” said BOM’s Perth climatologist Yanhui Blockley.

“We have seen cooler November days and even nights around the centre of Perth suburbs, and for the Perth metro – that had the third coolest November on record since 2008.”

Despite the cool month, WA had the highest daytime temperatures on record for spring since records began in 1910.

The Kimberley largely drove up average temperatures for the state, with four days in November recording extreme heats of 45C.

“We’re on track to be the second hottest year on record,” Ms Blockley said.

The warmest spring day was 36.6C on Friday, October 30, with the following Saturday also recording the warmest morning at 17.6C.

The coldest spring morning was on September 12, recording 5.6C, while the coolest spring day was on October 2 when the temperature peaked at 16.7C.

Looking nationally, November also brought on a surprising heatwave to Victoria and started a grass bushfire in New South Wales.

“A lot of temperature records are broken and wide-spread as well, so we thought in a La Nina year we wouldn’t have such extreme heatwaves and you wouldn’t think you would have bushfire dangers,” Ms Blockley said.

“The bureau for the past decade has seen the warming trend is sometimes overtaking the cooler [climatic drivers]. So definitely climate change plays an important part as well.”

As for summer, expect warmer than average nights and cooler days.

The average maximum temperature for December to February is likely to be higher than the long-term average for the far west of WA but cooler than the long-term average for south coast WA and north east WA.

“Daytime temperatures in summer are likely to be near average, but there will be periods of high heat combined with milder periods,” said BOM’s Head of Operational Climate Services, Dr Andrew Watkins.

Fraser Island bushfire continues to burn as weather conditions worsen


Crews are continuing to battle a “significant fire” that has been burning on Fraser Island off south-east Queensland for more than six weeks, while more than 350 campers are told to limit their movements as weather conditions are set to worsen this afternoon.

The blaze, which is burning on two fronts, north of Kingfisher Bay Resort and west of Cathedrals, has already ripped through 74,000 hectares of land on the World Heritage-listed island since starting from an illegal campfire on October 15.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) Commissioner Greg Leach said the fire was expected to be influenced by deteriorating weather today.

“By high temperatures in the low 30s … but more importantly by a strong northerly wind which will potentially drive the fire in a southerly direction,” he said.

Mr Leach said crews had tried to get the upper hand on the blaze over the last few days.

“To this point, we haven’t been successful at that — we will continue to try and contain this fire over coming days,” he said.

Incident controller Superintendent James Haig said today’s conditions had been “as we predicted and prepared for”.

Island remains closed to new visitors

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) confirmed there were currently 362 people on the island and the tourist hotspot was still closed to new visitors.

QPWS senior ranger Scott Brook said no campers on the island were currently at risk, but smoke from the fire may be “uncomfortable”.

“Areas that would be influenced by fire front have been swept numerous times and roads that might lead people into danger have been closed,” he said.

Kingfisher Bay Resort to close

Meanwhile, a letter received by a guest staying at the Kingfisher Bay Resort said it would close from tomorrow.

The letter said as fire authorities had restricted new arrivals to Fraser Island, the resort had decided to take “precautionary action” and close to guests from 10:30am on Monday, November 30, until December 14.

“Rest assured that this is not an evacuation, and our team will work closely with guests, to assist with all travel amendments,” the letter said.

“Until the time of your departure, we request that guests remain within the resort grounds, as access to the inland tracks are closed.

“Guided tours have also been postponed until further notice.”

The letter said it had made “extensive preparations to ensure the safety of guests and team members” should the fire approach the resort.

“These preparations include having firefighting units based at the resort to ensure that any event is dealt with quickly and effectively,” the letter said.

The letter said there would be additional ferry services departing the resort on Monday.

When the ABC contacted the resort about the letter, a spokesperson said it was not making any comment at this stage.

The resort has since posted about the closure on its Facebook page.

Smoke haze moves south

Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) senior meteorologist Peter Markworth said smoke from the fire had begun moving south.

“That smoke, in particular, could reach down towards the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane city,” he said.

“We’ve seen a little bit of haze around the city today.”

Mr Markworth said the climbing temperatures over the next few days would “enhance” the blaze.

We’re just expecting persistent northerlies with a very slight and temporary wind change to the east.”

Sydney weather: NSW swelters through heatwave


“It reflects the fact that this westerly wind kept us all warm,” Helen Kirkup from the Bureau of Meteorology said. “We had a fair bit of cloud cover as well.”

If the temperature hits 40 degrees on Sunday as predicted, it will be only the second time on record that the city has recorded two consecutive November days with temperatures above 40 degrees.

A southerly buster is forecast to hit the city in the late afternoon, bringing winds of up to 60 kilometres per hour, gusting up to 80 kilometres per hour, and a 16 degree drop in temperature. Monday will be cloudy with the slight chance of a shower.

A total fire ban is in place across Sydney and on the Far North Coast, North Coast, Greater Hunter, Greater Sydney, North Western, Illawarra/Shoalhaven, Central Ranges, New England and Northern Slopes.

The NSW Rural Fire Service is warning of a very high to severe fire danger in those areas.

By 12pm, there were 45 fires burning across the state and seven were yet to be contained, though none had been elevated above advice level.

However, with strong winds and high temperatures, the RFS warned fires could spread quickly and urged people to call triple-0 as soon as possible if they became aware of a fire.

NSW RFS Commissioner Rob Rogers told Today he was most concerned about new ignitions.

“It’s certainly the worst day for fire risk since last fire season,” Commissioner Rogers said.

The RFS has asked harvesters in parts of the North West, Central West and Upper Hunter to immediately cease operations and check the weather conditions before continuing.

As many people resorted to air conditioning, electricity demand ramped up across the grid but remained well short of maximum demand.

Endeavour Energy spokesman Peter Payne said the utility was more concerned about the afternoon change, when branches from heat-weakened eucalypts were prone to falling across power lines and auto-reclosers had been switched to manual to mitigate bushfire risk, raising the likelihood of power outages.

“The southerly that comes through after a hot day causes more issues in our network than the heat itself,” Mr Payne said.

Beachgoers looking to cool off over the weekend were warned to observe social distancing along the coastline, while councils and surf lifesavers monitored crowding at some of Sydney’s most popular beaches. The warnings came as NSW recorded no new locally acquired COVID infections, and four new cases among overseas travellers.

On Saturday, crowds remained manageable and no beaches were closed.

The temperature at Sydney’s Observatory Hill peaked at 40.8C just after 3pm on Saturday, exceeding by four degrees the forecast of 36C for Saturday. In Penrith, it peaked at 41.5. The hottest temperature recorded in the city was at the airport, where the mercury momentarily hit 43 just after 4pm – skirting close to the November record of 43.4C.

A spokesman for Surf Life Saving NSW said patrols were on high alert as crowds flocked to the beaches for the first heatwave weekend of the season.

While it was tempting during a heatwave to take to the waves in the early morning and evening, he urged beachgoers to stick to patrolled beaches and check the Beach Safe app before leaving home to see which beaches are open.

Beach ambassadors have been tasked with monitoring social distancing across Waverley Council beaches and people have been told to stay 1.5 metres or a towel-length apart unless they are from the same household.

“This is going to be an especially challenging summer,” Waverley lifeguard services manager Matt du Plessis said.
