So we've just come to the end of a fairly intense heatwave.
In Ellenbrook, because we don't get the seabreeze, and heat swelters against the Darling Scarp, it's always about 2-4C more than it is in the Perth metro area.
So we've mostly been dealing with average temps of 41C for four days in a row. (A range of about 105-110F for USians).
Complete with high humidity.
Last night, the weather broke down as a degrading tropical cyclone system approached.
And now today, we have rain.

But here were the clouds from last night's sunset, which was glorious.

This section had a really interesting bit of mammatus:

So I took a close up:

And so night begins to fall:

You have captured some amazing skies. Thank you for sharing the photos. :)

Hopefully your temperatures will ease off. We're currently in a warm spell which is very nice, but it is accompanied by absolutely bellowing winds (35-ish km/hr gusts, over a base of 22km/hr) which I am not enjoying. The weather will be shifting to a more moderate winter pattern tomorrow and I am actually looking forward to it.

That is an enormous temperature shift! We get them here too, but as a natural part of winter warming patterns. (It's called a "Chinook" and you can literally see it evaporating snow if the shift is radical enough.) I'm guessing such a tremendous change is not part of the normal climate regime where you are. :(
