Australia: September was the second driest month in more than 100 YEARS – and Summer is set to be even worse
Notice the dog that didn't bark? For once there is no tie to global warming given. But EVERYTHING is due to global warming! How come this bout of difficult weather is not attributed to global warming? I have repeatedly noted that with Leftists, what they leave out is as significant as what they say -- and this is an example of it
What they are not facing up to is that drought is a sign of COOLING! If the weather really had been hot, more water would have evaporated off the oceans and come down as rain, giving FLOODS, if anything. It may happen yet but it has not happened so far. Their cockeyed theory doesn't fit the present observed facts. The globe is NOT warming. A big drought contradicts warming
Drought-stricken farmers are expected to get a much-needed break from September's record dry spell over the next few weeks.
But Aussies shouldn't breath a sigh of relief too soon - weather experts believe that the dip in temperature won't last long.
Bureau of Meteorology expert Tom Hough warned that the months leading up to summer will see above-average heat and summer is set to be a scorcher.
Above-average temperatures will grace the country in the months leading up to summer, Mr Hough said.
Temperatures will soar above the norm for the month of October across the country, with the exception of far-east and north Queensland and northeast NSW.
Sydney's average temperatures for October usually sit between 24-27 degrees.
November temperatures will also be above average with the exception of Western Australia's southeast coast.
Similarly December will see scorching temperatures above the norm in most of the country.
However there is no need to crack out the sunscreen just yet. Temperatures are expected to cool towards the end of the week and much-needed rain will sweep the country.
A BOM expert told Daily Mail Australia that rain will be widespread across the southern half of the nation over the next two weeks.
At least 25-50mm of rain is expected to fall in Sydney alone, following the country's record dry September. An average of just 5.2mm of rainfall was recorded last month.
