Good idea in theory but not in actuality.

If someone has a question they're interested in and asks it, they either don't want to scroll through pages and pages amidst other topics to see the responses or once the next page comes up the topic will be buried and ignored.

If I wanted to ask something like "X climate is more similar to B or C", I would never use this.

Either he topic would be hurried and have like 3 responses or if need to go through 10s of pages and figure out what responses aren't to my topic and which ones aren't or it could get ignored with someone else's topic being discussed at the same time as the new one is posted.

This should be closed.

The only issue I have with that is sometimes I want that sort of thread to have a poll.

Are we having the worst period of mild weather mixed with hot days in history? There's literally been zero transition between them so far and it's annoying the shit out of me. This is bad even for Melbourne.

You have a point about some factors, but we can always use this thread to discuss trivial material when it comes to weather and/or to vent (i.e. "it's hot/cold right now!", "my city just had its first snowfall *pics*", "I wonder when [insert city] will have its 32F/0C high", "can cold weather make you sick", etc and etc. Surely, threads on these are very irrelevant (at least to me) and they serve no purpose.

Yeah, I noticed it for Sydney, especially in November. Though Sep and Oct were rather transitional.

In other topic, which city is most likely to get accumulating snow, LA or Sydney?

L.A by far.

Isn't it too dry? I know that LA is wet in the winter, but Sydney still is more wetter. Sydney is more prone to wet cold snaps that leave slushy snow on the 700m highlands (and graupel at the lower parts).

Is LA prone to those moist, cold northerlies that give a bit of snow at places that are a bit elevated (not talking about its adjacent 2000m mountains)?

LA has recorded snow though, even down to the coast. Nothing like that has ever happened in Sydney.

The biggest recorded snowstorm to visit the city hit on Jan. 10, 1949. Snowfall lasted nearly three days and varied by location; barely a third of an inch fell on the L.A. civic center, where official measurements were made, but nearly a foot fell elsewhere. Snow blanketed beach cities from Santa Monica to Laguna. Nighttime temperatures dipped into the 20s.

There some pictures in this:

Snow at pretty low elevations too.
