Well today is the 1st of the month, change of seasons, and the optimism of spring!
This is particularly apparent in the real estate world - where houses go on the market, and the gardening and home improvement world - great for Bunnings, Masters and other home-garden shops.
Temps last night were winter-like, but it will warm up over then next few days to mid-20's C in this area by mid-week.

Not much sunshine or warmth for the first day of spring here Forecasts for the first run of >20C days next week are already getting downgraded. Wednesday was supposed to be 20C but now downgraded to 18C then its already back to the usual 14-16C and rain crap after that.

Meanwhile, ****ney's temps get upgraded and they've already hit 30C THE ****S AND OFCOURSE THEIR FORECAST HAS FREAKING SUNSHINE EVERY DAY WHILE WE SUFFER IN COLD AND RAIN AS PER FREAKING USUAL GOD DAMN THEM FOR PHLUCKS SAKE DAMN THEM TO HELL

I hope they get another summer like last year

A steady southerly wind is making September feel like a chilly day in July. (mid-winter)

^^ Newcastle also has had sunshine everyday for at least a full week,
however most days I'm not warm before 10am and after 4pm; 6 hours of comfort a day usually?

We have had 2-3 summerlike days so far, one-offs.
We had one about 3 days ago. It was warmer at 8am then than it is at 1 pm now.

I already hate Newcastle winter (it's too long imho) so Flight Simmer you have my sympathies.

Townsville winter in retrospect is a lot nicer.
Worst I could say about it was I mildly-disliked Townsville winter.

I think in general,
I'm disliking everything (besides rain) that makes NSW's climate "temperate"; mild sunshine, cool afternoon breezes etc.

However unlike in Toronto Canada
I thoroughly enjoy even the slightest anomaly from average.
2+ C/ 4+ F above average is enough to make me happy,
as is the odd day that is almost dead calm with near-seasonal temperatures.
so about 1-in-10 days here are close to perfect for me so far.

After a very sunny August, spring is a continuation of this theme with a slight cool down today, but still excellent outdoors weather.

Currently a very nice 21C, expected to reach 29C by the end of the week.

two days ago it was 35.5c for 5 hours which is 13 degrees above normal. and sunny, and dew point 20c was so nice.

uv index is down to 5 though so my tan is starting to go and it is only sept 1. but I am still darker than most other Caucasians here.
