We are planning a trip to Australia
, where we have never been, for next January/February. A part of that trip will, hopefully, be a bareboat charter
in the Whitsundays. In researching the idea, we have come to understand that this is low season, which is a good thing from a cost and, I assume, availability perspective but are a bit worried about any weather
issues. We have data about temperature and wind
and all that seems reasonably ok but are having a bit of trouble with rainfall. Seems that an average year produces about 10" of rain in January and a bit more in February. If that is coming in relatively intense bursts (shower activity) we are fine with it but, as we are planning the trip in part to escape being drizzled to death in Oregon
, we are wondering what the chances are that we are just exchanging cold drizzle for warm drizzle. A week of grey skies and relentless drip would not be our idea of the ideal experience.
Anyone have any insight on what we could reasonably expect for rain conditions or other Wx phenomena that we should take into account?
