Is this really summer in Australia ?

Recommended Posts

So fed up with the cool weather.

Today is the first day of summer and this is the week ahead. 

This is not even an English summer let alone an Australian summer.

I'd rather have that than hot weather any day Parley.  It's much the same here and it rained overnight.

27 or 28 degrees would be nice.

Your question is wrong. It should be "is this really Melbourne's summer?"

 

Then the answer is: yep, that's Melbourne.

 

Perth 33 to 38 in the next few days.

We have had 29-32 C over the last 3 weeks. 😎 And 20-25 C every night. Lots more to come, too.

The weather here in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney has been fairly warm, around 28 -31 most days. Its a normal summer with the exception of prevailing smoke haze and the occasional days where raised dusts from western NSW are blown in by strong winds. Everyting has a thin brown covering and we have to close up the house in the warm weather. 

There has been no significant rainfall for some time. The frustrating bit is that storms approach but seem to pass over with little or no rain. 

Several smouldering bush fires are still active in the BM National Park as well. Hopefully we get decent rain in December. Its has not been our best spring/summer period, that's for certain.

Canberra  -  23C

Darwin  -  33C

Devonport (Tas)  -   15C

Hobart  -  19C

I have family living in Melbourne and they’ve been saying the weathers been terrible. Bad winter and still not much better.  Mid 20’s is perfect for me. It’s cold here, was minus 3.5 yesterday morning when I went out, I had to scrape the windscreen, it was covered in thick ice.

Where are you Tulip?

I've been in Tassie for very nearly 6 years now and this is by far the coolest weather for this time of year I can remember so far.  My sister is coming soon and she is expecting the weather to be pleasantly warm so hope it improves.

I’m in the south of England. Although cold, the day was lovely. It was one of those crisp days with the deepest blue sky, bright sunshine and frosty.  I hate grey, wet and windy days so today whilst cold was nice although I’d much prefer a warm, sunny day.

I do so enjoy that sort of weather.  We get mornings like that during the winter here but the frost is gone by 8 or 9.  I remember days in Scotland when the frost lasted all day.  Like living in a fridge.  😉  

For some reason I thought you lived in Australia.

Rain at long last!  Might only last 30 minutes or so but a proper storm and our first measurable rainfall since June.

I know that the forecast is very hot, sunny and windy this week again but hoping this will dampen things down a bit.  Still smells smoky but that smoke is from a long way off I believe.

It's not uncommon for a 40+ C difference between extremes at exactly the same time.  Currently the hottest temp. is  42.1 at Derby Airport, W.A. and the coldest is minus 1.6 at Thredbo Top Station, NSW.

Poms are used to small and the same.  Talking to them here over the decades and they really have no idea that Australia is more like a franchise than a country.  Every state and territory are completely different.

I can't remember it raining a lot in Perth.  Yes a goodly amount during winter but dry in summer for months   ...............  at least that's how it was when I lived there.  Weather could have changed in 30 years though.

You would expect a fair amount of rainfall in Brisbane    ...............  it is subtropical.   Did you not do geography at school Simmo?  😉

Oh it must be global cooling, obviously 😎

Watched the cricket yesterday. Cold and wet in Adelaide. Thought the cricket fans should be rioting and blaming Scott Morrison for the weather.
