Sunny today with low to moderate winds and a high of 21C. Currently we have clear sky’s, a temperature of of 11C, our winds are light at NW at 3 km/h and will increase to 15 km/h throughout the day.
There are no weather or marine wind warnings for our area at this time.
Our FIRE DANGER sits at LOW: Low (Green) – Fire starts are unlikely. Weather and fuel conditions will lead to slow fire spread, low intensity and relatively easy control with light mop-up. Controlled burns can usually be executed with reasonable safety.
HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY!

How complex is Jupiter? NASA’s Juno mission
to Jupiter is finding the Jovian giant to be more complicated than expected
. Jupiter’s magnetic field has been discovered to be
much different from our Earth’s simple dipole field
, showing several poles embedded in a complicated network
more convoluted in the north than the south. Further, Juno’s radio measurements show that Jupiter’s atmosphere
shows structure well below the upper cloud deck — even hundreds of kilometers deep. Jupiter
‘s newfound complexity is evident also in southern clouds, as shown in the featured image
. There, planet-circling zones and belts
that dominate near the equator decay into a complex miasma
of continent-sized storm swirls. Juno
continues in its looping elliptical orbit, swooping near the huge planet
every 53 days and exploring a slightly different sector each time around.
