A chilly June 2010 was certainly not a figment of the city’s imagination with the Bureau of Meteorology reporting below-average day and night temperatures.
But while the start of July has taken the edge off early morning discomfort, the bureau is forecasting the imminent return of frosty conditions.
On Thursday, July 1, Dubbo’s temperature rose from minus 0.6 to 13.8 degrees.
Yesterday the city’s early risers encountered three degrees with the thermometer sitting on 14 degrees about 3pm.
Today the temperature should move between three and 12 degrees, with rain clearing.
The bureau predicts tomorrow and Monday will be fine with temperature ranges of minus one to 15 degrees and zero to 16 degrees, respectively.
The average minimum temperature for June this year was 4.2 degrees and the average maximum 15.8.
Data collected by the bureau since 1993 at Dubbo airport reveals a long-term average minimum temperature of 4.4 degrees and maximum of 16.3 for the month.
The last four mornings of July 2010 recorded below zero temperatures, impacting the monthly figures and testing the city’s ability to rise above the cold.
July’s long-term average minimum and maximum temperatures are three and 15.3 degrees.
Meanwhile 34.2mm of rain fell in June, 17.4 on June 26 and 10.6mm on June 18.
Long-term average rainfall for the month is 45.2mm
