Reading the posts from Australia and getting confused about the weather. Has to be your winter over there, correct? We are just approaching our summer months and our weather here in the States has been all over the place. Back in March, normally cold, the temps were so warm that our daffodils started to bloom and bloomed a whole month early. Then in April when they were suppose to bloom, they had all gone by. There is a park very close to us that grows 600,000 daffodils, perhaps more and we have a big daffodil festival only this year when the festival came in April the Daffys were all gone.

Right now here in Connecticut it is 6:46 am and 65 degrees with the possibility of it hitting 84 degrees today with big time humidity. Not so comfortable. Like our winter passed, so will yours and our roles will be reversed. I will be on here complaining about the cold and you will be enjoying the warm weather! Have a good winter.

Yes. It is early winter in the Southern Hemisphere. Australia is experiencing the equivalent of late November/early December for the Northern Hemisphere.

Chance of air frosts in June now extends to 2nd & 3rd, with a ground frost on 1st. Even if those air frosts don't come off, looks like ground frosts will be a reality. Could really upset the garden. Could it be the coldest start to June since 1975? Or perhaps since 1953, the year of the coronation. Pretty apt that this would be the period of the Diamond Jubilee then.

Dunno if it belongs to the forecast thread or this one. I guess both.

And so it is, that all good things must come to an end. It was nice while it lasted. A thunderstorm would have been nice, but hey ho.



Roll on the bitter arctic northerly express, the frosts, cloud and drizzle as the annual northern blocking parade sets itself up for the summer. Now for me to go into hibernation.

It's funny, isn't it, that we had a record wet April with constant northerly winds and snow, a complete contrast to the previous years where April has been stunningly warm, dry and sunny.. yet people think summer 2012 will end up the same as the previous 5 because this good weather cannot last forever.. maybe this year we will actually get a warm and sunny August?

Well my post was not serious obviously. I have no idea what to expect from summer. I await it with bated breath.

That tombstone reminds me of the "winter cancel" crowd in North America that came out late last November. In other words, premature, albeit jokingly so.

Perhaps that wasn't the best example to use; they were pretty much right here, as far being lousier than usual through the whole winter goes.

Too bloody early if you ask me - no thanks to those horrid and icy westerly winds prevailing - total depressing and suicide - inducing weather if you ask me

Some western suburbs sites such as Parramatta, Bankstown and Prospect, to name but three for example, are recording the coldest May minimums since 1970 with the running average being more than 1 to 2 degrees C below average!

Fortunately the first two weeks of June, at the moment judging by current models, looks like proving to be the opposite
