Another from the Weather Isn’t Climate Department:
Cloud and rain has limited Brisbane’s temperature to 19.1 degrees so far today, putting the city on track for its coldest December day since 1888.
20mm of rain had drenched the city between 9am and 3pm, while the associated cloud cover had blocked out the warming rays of the summer sun.
The highest temperature recorded after 9am in Brisbane was 19.1 degrees, which is around 10 below average for the month of December. The main Brisbane weather site only has 12 years of continuous records, but checking surrounding sites from the city and the old regional office site, the current maximum of 19.1 would be the lowest recorded since 1888 (assuming we stay at or below 19.3 until 9am on Thursday).

Of course, this story is as meaningless in relation to climate as all those hysterical claims that hot days are a sign of “global warming”.
