Warm and breezy June in Darwin

Rob Sharpe, Sunday June 30, 2013 - 13:44 EST

Darwin has enjoyed its warmest June in 10 years with winds often becoming gusty.

June temperatures in Darwin were more than a degree above the long term average in terms of nights and days. This makes it the warmest June since 2003. The primary reason for the extra warmth has been the windier than normal conditions.

Winds have averaged 21km/h at 9am through the month compared to the long term average of 14km/h. The stronger winds have generally been coming from inland areas, helping the mercury rise and making it feel less humid. The stronger winds also led to a tendency to warmer than usual nights.

Winds have been fresh and gusty today from the southeast, leading to a warm and dry day. Tomorrow will follow a similar pattern before winds become lighter on Wednesday with added humidity.
