The cooler-than-average conditions which began in the Albury-Wodonga region on October 31 continued this week.

Warmer-than-normal days may not return until about November 13.

It maybe well after mid-month before hot days over 30 degrees finally arrive.

Last weekend there were unprecedented frosts in the Western District and the Wimmera of Victoria and also in the south-east of South Australia.

Casterton with minus 0.3 had its coldest November morning since 1977.

Warracknabeal with 0.5 had its coldest November morning in 60 years of records.

Over in South Australia, Keith had its coldest November morning with 0.5 on record, just pipping the 1974 record of 0.6. Strathablyn with 1.7 was a new record low for November.

Many other places in these areas had their coldest November morning for 40 years or more.

In the Riverina, Deniliquin recorded a minimum temperature of 2.2 on the Saturday and 2.3 on the Sunday morning .

This was the coldest pair of mornings for November at Deniliquin since 1872.

The very hot conditions in northern Western Australia eased during last weekend.

The inland complex low over the northern part of the Northern Territory and over outback Queensland has remained quasi-stationary and has blocked the eastward progression of a strong high in the Bight region in the past week.

One centre of this complex low is currently heading our way and will effectively prevent the Bight high progressing eastwards even further.

The warmer-than-average days now look like arriving gradually by next weekend, warm to hot days from next Monday November 13.

A new upper level disturbance over northern Western Australia is slowly approaching and will bring thunderstorm activity to our region by the weekend of November 18 and 19.
