    Coldest September day since 1997
    Monday, 5 September 2005

    Low maximum temperatures were recorded yesterday in the Hunter, making it one of the coldest September days since 1997. Conditions throughout the day were cloudy with occasional showers and drizzle. The 24 hour maximum temperatures in the Lower Hunter were 13 or 14C at most locations. These temperatures were typically 8 - 9C below average. The Upper Hunter experienced slightly higher maximums due to the slightly sunnier conditions.

    Despite the low maximum temperatures, snow did not occur on any of the ranges. This was because the air mass was of sub-tropical origin and therefore the lower troposphere was too warm and moist to support any snow.

    The recent rain and cool daytime temperatures of yesterday are in contrast with the mild and dry August that was experienced throughout the Hunter. August 2005 ended as the driest August since 1995 and the mildest since 2002.
