THE start of October had the first run of warm weather for the Valley but it was nothing to get too hot under the collar about.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology we were just under our normal maximum temperatures for October.
The seasonal outlook for spring and summer is as yet undecided but the southern regions of Australia can expect a hot, dry summer.
The data is yet to be finalised on water temperatures across the Pacific which indicate whether or not Australia will have an El Nino year.
An El Nino year would mean hotter than average maximum temperatures and lower than average rainfall.
The forecast for the next couple of days is:
16-31degrees and partly cloudy with light winds becoming east north-easterly throughout the morning at 15-20km/h then tending north-westerly late in the afternoon.
15-34 degrees and a sunny day with winds from the north west at 15-25km/h shifting south east into the afternoon and increasing to 25-35km/h.
12-26 degrees with a shower or two developing. Winds should be south-westerly at 15-25 km/h early then turning south-easterly late in the morning.
The chance of rain for Monday is 25-50%.
