Not really. Perth is having a *record* heatwave, Adelaide isnt *that* much hotter than Melb (and its basically the same in winter) and as for Syd and Brisbane, here's a comparison of next weeks forecast:

Melbourne
Friday .............. 59 / 92
Saturday .......... 66 / 97
Sunday ............ 63 / 81
Monday ............ 66 / 100
Tuesday ........... 73 / 100
Wednesday ....... 63 / 77

Sydney
Friday .............. 67 / 80
Saturday .......... 67 / 80
Sunday ............ 68 / 82
Monday ............ 70 / 79
Tuesday ........... 70 / 79
Wednesday ....... 68 / 80


Brisbane
Friday .............. 68 / 81
Saturday .......... 68 / 81
Sunday ............ 70 / 81
Monday ............ 68 / 79
Tuesday ........... 70 / 79
Wednesday ....... 72 / 79

I would guess that some of Australia's vineyards are inland from Melbourne?
There's alot of vineyards within Melbourne's vicinity, many of them right on the coast. The northern half of Victoria could be compared to the southern half of California's central valley, although our winters are 2-3慢 warmer

There's a huge citrus, wine and stonefruit industry up at Mildura, which is in the northwestern corner of VIctoria.
Their forecast looks like this:
Mildura
Friday .............. 65 / 100
Saturday .......... 68 / 100
Sunday ............ 68 / 100
Monday ............ 72 / 114
Tuesday ........... 77 / 104
Wednesday ....... 75 / 104

Miserable? Are you kidding? That's 59 degrees Fahrenheit! In Ohio if it was 59 degrees people would be wearing shorts and short sleeve shirts. That's not cold at all!

Wow that's one crazy looking forecast, if that was Toronto.

Typically we don't cool more than roughly 12 C overnight. Your cooler days are just like normal Toronto days, but your hot days have a lot more cooling overnight. Typically when it hits 32 C we don't cool below 20 C. When we hit 36 C we often don't cool past 25 C.

*How come your forecasts are in Fahrenheit? To help our American friends?
Since you're talking about Australia I already converted my reply to Celcius without noticing you were using Fahrenheit.

The forecast for Sydney is what I expected, mild amounts of summer "heat", yet consistant warmth. I like how it doesn't cool past 67 F.

Brisbane, I'm surprised it's just as cool as Sydney, given Brisbane's latitude of 30 degrees.

(In the southeastern U.S. at that latitude, mid-summer would average 88-93 F or 31-34 C. Even the Carolina coast at 34-35 degrees north averages 86-90 F or 30-32 C.)


*You average 12-15 days a year above 35 C (95 F)?
For a place with cool summers, that sounds excellent.
Toronto might get 12 days at 35 C in a decade.
(Good thing I can sometimes vacation where it averages 31-34 C. )

only 2 days out of the 7 below 30C/86F - looking good! I live about 20km inland, where seabreezes rarely penetrate, so I could be facing a full week or two of consistant 30's.

there are 12C evenings in Melbourne in summer but are few and far between. In northeast Vic they are surprisingly common, even though its 30-40C during the day.

yer Sydney doesnt get many days above 30C in summer, usually its around the 25-28C mark during the day and 20C at night, with occasional bursts of heat or cold. You'd be surprised to learn that their record highest overnight minimum is only 26慢!

Brisbane is under constant cloud and showers hence the cooler days.

You should come over right now and hire a houseboat at Victoria's hottest town, Mildura:
