Kalgoorlie shivers in unseasonal weather

RECORD CHILLY TEMPERATURES have sent residents in Kalgoorlie and other parts of WA reaching for the blankets. Kalgoorlie has experienced the extremes of weather over the past five days with Wednesday’s chilly 15.1C maximum and 15C on Tuesday setting a RECORD LOW FOR FEBRUARY. The previous lowest temperature in the mining town during February was 16.4 C in 1993. The mercury has taken a massive dive since Sunday when the maximum reached 41C. On Monday it was 34.6C. Kalgoorlie’s average for February is 32C. “To be as low as 15C, that’s REALLY REALLY UNUSUAL." There was some UNUSUALLY colder weather around, particularly in the Goldfields region. NUMEROUS OTHER RECORD LOWS were recorded in the Gascoyne region, Midwest and Southern Cross. Cooler winds from the southeast and extensive cloud, along with the impact of Tropical Cyclone Nicholas, are blamed for the colder weather. The bureau has issued a warning to sheep farmers in the Central West and northern parts of the Central Wheat Belt about wet and windy weather and unseasonably cool temperatures.
