So, how is the summer for you southerners going so far?

In Melbourne, so far very cold and mainly cloudy, November went off with a bang with 35C heat and thunderstorms. November was quite warm and stormy with 8 thunder days recorded, which succeeds a rather stormy September and October, with 6 thunder days in the month to Oct 31. The star of summer (Dec 1) was cold recording a high/low temp of 9.9/18.7C (50-67F). Since then, the warmest temp was 20C, 68F.

NW Vic is doing much better, with temps in Mildura around 25-30C / 77-86F, which is still below average for them, but the first 4 days of summer have recorded an average cloud cover of 0/8 at 9am and 0/8 at 3pm

Sydney also fairing poorly, with very cool conditions forecast with high temps as low as 19C/66F and nothing above 75F for the next week. High Temps have been stuck at 20-21C / 70F for the first 4 days of summer.

Melbourne is expecting warmer conditions up to 85F with showers/storms, before another cool blast next Monday. Sydney will continue to suffer with temps not expected to exceed 24C/75F all week, and will likely see a drop in temp as the cooler airmass expected next week moves into NSW.

lol don't worry, it hasn't been warm here, 50F nights and mid 60's days and cloudy, a very pathetic start to summer If anything, last night reminded me of July. There's a couple of warmer mid 80's in the forecast then it's back to high 60's with cloud by next Monday. You ain't missing out on much!

Here in Buenos Aires we had like two hot weeks at the end of November with highs in the 28-34 C, but since the last day of November we've been enjoying very nice weather: lows between 12 C and 17 C and highs between 20 C and 26 C. For the next week the temp will rise a bit, but no too much, fortunately. Anyway, I miss July and the cold.

This is forecast for Buenos Aires for the next 7 days, acorrding to weather.com:

sun: 68/82
mon: 65/85
tue:62/87
wed: 60/89
thu:65/89
fri:69/89
sat: 68/90
sun:60/88

oh yeah, they are ALL gonna be sunny. Not one cloud.

And i think those 68/69 lows are really gonna be 27 celsius night like last week, where you cant sleep and have to put ice cubs on you to actually get a minute of sleep. Damn! Next days looks hellish AGAIN with its 90f highs. .


I wanna ask, when did BA became so sunny? when did it turned into Phoenix? I mean, i feel like this city have been sunny FOREVER!

Business as usual here so far, with max temps between 19C- 24C/66-75F . Mnimum temps have been between 9-15C/48-60F. Sun is at only 30 hours, but this is the cloudiest month in terms of percentage. Rainfall is at 56mm/2 inches, most of which fell yesterday. Very green at the moment, with long grass everywhere.

Chilly start to a cool week

Rebecca Mitchell, Monday December 5, 2011 - 13:41 EDT

Much of NSW and VIC have had a chilly start to the day as the mercury plunged below freezing in some areas.

A high pressure system over the Bight is directing strong and cold southerly winds over eastern Australia. This has allowed temperatures to fall well below average for this time of year, leaving many wondering where summer has gone.

Sydney has had a run of cool days to start the summer, remaining below 23 degrees on each day so far, making this the coldest start to the season in 44 years. This morning continued to trend of unseasonable temperatures, falling to 12 degrees, which is the coldest December morning in 16 years.

Katoomba had its lowest December minimum in over 50 years of records as temperatures fell to just two degrees overnight. One of the coldest temperatures was recorded in Goulburn at minus one, which is 12 degrees below average for the area!

Melbourne also felt the chill as it recorded a low of 3.5 degrees at the airport, the coldest December minimum in more than 41 years.

The next few days in the region will remain cool but it should be warming up later in the week. This warmth will unfortunately be accompanied by potentially heavy rain.

LOL! 12 C is our average low at the peak of summer.

Well, that is quite cold. Even we haven't gone below 5 C.
