Some rain on the way by late day!

The weather, currently.

A little unsettled for the start of the new week, but much of the day will be dry. There is a risk of an isolated shower in the morning, with a wake up temperature near 16°C. However the core of that initial moisture will fall during the pre-dawn hours. Then some sunny breaks for the afternoon, with a more widespread rain event unfolding later in the day a chance of thunderstorms. The high will be 23°C, but with a brisk easterly breeze of 20-40km/h. The UV index will be 9 or very high.

Monday Night: Cloudy with showers, the low 17°C.

Currently’s Rebecca McCarthy wrote a piece last week on the man who began naming hurricanes after people,

“In 1902, a man named Clement Wragge aimed a cannon at the sky in Queensland, Australia and hoped for rain. Wragge was a visionary freak among meteorologists — orphaned at the age of five, he was trained in cosmology and meteorology by his grandmother and would later become quite interested in spiritualism. By most accounts, he was a foul-mouthed, short-tempered man, with a turbulent personal life and an unlikely relationship with Brigham Young, but today he’s generally regarded as one of the more influential figures in weather forecasting.”
