Synop report summary

How the hell can those lows be that low? Highest low 15.4C? Ok, very low humidity, but still.

Some suggestions for new nicknames:

Total Overcast
Eternal Overcast
Overcast Gloom
Antarctic Blast
Full Antarctic Blast
Antarctic Blast Reloaded

That's the airport - it's a lot colder than the city stations at night.

On average it looks good yeah. But when one day is 40C and the next day is 19C, well that's ridiculous. Most of Europe outside of the Northern countries have far better summers IMO.

It's a shame Melbourne is so inconsistent. It looks like an amazing City.

Time to move? You want summer? I'll show you summer. Come to the windy city where it's been hot enough to fry an egg on the side walk.

This isn't summer. I cannot believe summers here can be so horrific. It is ofcourse made worse by seeing everywhere else in the country getting heat and bright sunshine and thunderstorms.

I haven't seen a bolt of lightning since July.

Bring on winter. Atleast then, a lot of the country is also cold, storms are rare basically everywhere and the weather matches the season. I am so sick of wintry cold winds, overcast and cold maritime crap in what is supposed to be summer. Most nights this December have felt barely warmer than those in August, and I swear about 75% of mornings have been cold maritime overcast junk. This belongs in winter, not summer.

The models show yet more cold fronts and southerly maritime trash, to a particularly horrendous extent around the weekend of Jan 4-5. 850Temps are forecast to be as cold as 2C. Screw this, might aswell be winter.

Enjoy your goddamn summer Perffffffffffffffffffffffffffff, Shitney, Brisbane et al. I can't wait for winter. At least then the weather is pertinent to the season, there is far more excitement in terms of strong winds, hail, etc.
Make an effort to move?

I think the changeable nature of a Melbourne summer, was the main feature for me. Even though it's sunnier and warmer than Christchurch and Invercargill (places I've also lived), I had that same sense of unease -the knowledge that the weather was going to turn to custard, after a spell of warm, or even very hot weather.

Climates where the cold weather comes off the sea, suck imo. The interaction between opposing weather systems is more important to me than temperature alone.

I feel your pain man.

I value most things above weather - even though weather is important. Melbourne looks like Australia's most 'happening' city right now - Perth is booming, but it's too isolated and doesn't seem as cultured or sophisticated as Melbourne. I guess one place can't have it all (if consistently hot weather is what you're after).

Chin up - it's easy to ignore the weather and focus on other things. Be thankful you live in a great city with a lot going on - I'm sure the other 4 million+ residents of Melbourne do it quite easily .

If I moved to Aus, I'd pick Melbourne. Hobart would be a close second.

If you hate summer, get on the next plane to Maine in the US. You won't have to put up with summer for about 7 months and then you'll want a jacket in the evenings.
