A summer’s day in Noumea

It’s often very calm at the beginning (and the end) of the day as the sun doesn’t generate enough warmth to stir the air.  If no weather front is forecast, then the sky will remain clear.

As the sun sends out more heat, the air begins to move and the temperature increases.  The cumulus clouds, sitting at around 700m, begin to crown the tops of the range.

In the middle of the day, the cumulus will have risen up, there may be a possibility of showers and temperatures are at their highest.

Around 6pm, the wind tends to drop and the sky begins to clear again ... usually, that is ....
