BoM blips the weather …

First blip is the record cold in a large area of the South West of Western Australia:

[…] The BoM says the south of WA had its coldest winter since 1990 and the coldest September min on record (coldest mean also, but they don’t say so). September SST off the south-west was +0.08C, according to BoM data. How do you get repeated hits of the coldest weather since 1897 when the surrounding seas are warmer than average? Both NOAA and the record-breaking south-west cold weather over the past six months have been suggesting that the BoM’s SST anomaly baseline, algorithm and/or buoys aren’t a true reflection of historic averages.

A highly agenda destroying blip, where comments also report significant rainfall records broken too:

[…] Thats all I have time for – there must be a stack more. Watch these stunning cold records get fair coverage in the news media.
Daily maximum temperature anomaly for Australia – this map is for the 8th – The map for the 9th will update later.

BoM’s radar figure for Australia has blown a fuse or something too. One of the blip images of the loop for Australia saved here.
