Hey SAB, I am very interested in your Australian weather...for years I am studying and predicting it....and I can tell you that I succesfully predicted a washout and very cool summer 2011 for you ,back in July of 2010!!!Believe me or not but I did it!! I am not very good for seasonal predicting in other parts of world but I also predicted your cold and wet summer of 2007/2008,and hot summer 2009/2010 if you remember...... And I can tell you that this actual warming up will last maybe 5-7 days,and then again rain and cooler weather is coming...I'm very sorry but I don't see February being hot
Really big parts of oceans are cooling.......especially we can se PDO is going cold,Atlantic is pretty cold,that means NAO is negative,Arctic ocean is cooling.....If this continue I think we could enter into few pretty cool years over the globe!!!
