Beautiful weather sticking around

HAPPY tot Dylan Lewis had a sunny smile on his face as he enjoyed yet another terrific day in Rocky.

And the good news for the playful two-year-old, and the rest of us, is that the weather should be fine for months to come.

July was simply gorgeous – clear skies, low humidity, almost no rain and lots of sunshine. Average night-time temperatures were slightly lower than average at 8.9 degrees, but daytime maximums made up for it, averaging a little warmer than normal at 23.6 degrees.

According to the Rockhampton Bureau of Meteorology, August will see more of the same, with minimum temperatures rising a little and a continuation of the stable conditions in the Pacific to keep humidity low.

In fact, for the next three months the bureau is predicting slightly higher-than-average temperatures while rainfall is likely to be just below normal. So keep on swinging Dylan.
