In Invercargill, the weather is like this but is compounded by more rain with colder temps.
as an amatuer astronomer, i think you would like North Florida, especially in winter. the always have clear skies during winter, and if you live in a more rural area you can see almost every single star in the sky.

Invercargill I guess is very similar to Seattle.

Lol extremely cold, you need to get outside Australia more often. You wouldn't know what cold is.

forget about Invercargill then


nope. But they do have an abundance of grey skies and ugly cold rain.

Technically Invercargill has 4 seasons, its not just cold all the time, its funny how everyone complains about our weather but yet nobody has actually been to Invercargill. Those averages you were talking about are way out of date. Goto NIWA - National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research, New Zealand and go from there. We don't get alot of snow maybe 10-20cm per year.

I know, I thought Invercargill was quite cold in winter, was nothing compared to South Lake Tahoe, CA when I visited in December, even their winters are not as cold as Upstate NY.

Haha nice, it was only around -1F (-18C) when I had decided to go for a walk in the foot of snow what fell, its pretty sweet to walk in fresh snow what hasn't been walked on.

LOL, -1F is still pretty cold, yes walking in fresh snow is pretty awesome, especially if it's still falling from the sky. snow at -30 is not really snow when it's falling, it's ice crystals, it's pretty awesome.

south lake tahoe is a pretty awesome place to spend winter vacation, did you stay in a cabin??
