An exceptionally poor start to autumn in Brisbane. Has rained on and off the last three days (more on than off, sometimes vey heavily). This follows a wet and dull second half of February as well. The ground is very saturated and I hope we can avoid another big rain event.

Think we've had well over 100mm of rain already this month with < 1 hr total of sun. Forecast slightly better but the sun is a rare commodity.

I think its probably like the northern hemisphere. Spring starts in march but it really doesnt get going until april. I mean our trees still have no leaves and snow is coming into the forecast for next week again. The officual start is march 21st.

Meteorologically it begins in march, but climatologically yes, it usually begins in April here.

That is true for Perth too, March is on average warmer than the summer month of December.

You guys have had a really good stretch of warmer weather of late, lots of 30C+ days in February as well.

In contrast it was an overcast morning here with a few heavy showers and low cloud early clearing to a partly cloudy afternoon.

29 C here today... until the inevitable southerly came through with its ice-cold 50+ km/hr winds dropping the temp 15 C in the space of a couple of hours. When I got home my room was a lukewarm 21 C despite have the blinds open all day... a sure sign that summer has ended.

I bought ingredients to make porridge for breakfast at the supermarket today... another sign. It's getting increasingly difficult to get out of bed in the mornings. Here comes the nine months of shivering in the cold after the three months (or six weeks, rather) of being mildy warm.

You've definitely had one of your better summers, certainly for sunshine (2nd sunniest). Admittedly temperatures were only a little above average (+0.4C).
