The climate in my part of the world is generally mild and
temperatures normally range from somewhat below 10 deg C on
winter nights to a little over 30 on summer afternoons (say
deg F). These are my own estimates of normal variations and
Last summer and this winter have been particularly mild. The
thermometer on the porch of my unheated house never went below
deg C (53.6 F) when I read it in the small hours of the
on what felt like the coldest nights of this season. It was
15 C (59 F) at 2:40 am last night. And it seldom touched 30
(86 F) last summer.
It will be interesting to learn what the rest of the world has
been like over the past one year. Anyone willing to provide
coolest years in my memory. Our normal temps are minima of
around 0-5C in winter, maxima of around 15-18C, summer
minima of 15-20C maxima of around 30-35C. Snow here is about
a once in 25year event - this year it snowed on 2 completely
separate occassions. Last winter we had sleet and there were
some unconfirmed reports of snow. This year we set the
lowest maximum recorded for July.
So far summer has had a few hot days, but not as hot as
normal, and not the string of hot days we'd normally have.
Last summer was similar. While southern australia has been
roasting in 45C temps, we've been enjoying moderate days in
the low-mid 20s, unusually cool for this time of year.
The ongoing drought continues - we have missed out on the
wet monsoonal weather that north-queensland is receiving.
Summer is supposed to be our wet season, but we had one of
the dryest January's on record.
IIRC, the most extreme variations here within my own lifetime
were in the late 80s and early 90s. It probably dropped to
mid-single figures (Celsius) at night in winter and rose to the
mid-thirties in summer.
