WOW- and this February when it reached 89F I thought that was bad! But you guys reached the upper 90's in late August (which is about the same as late Feb here)!! WOW I'd go into clinical depression with those kind of temps in late winter lol

Ouch!!! Well Laredo, TX reached 100 in late February also so I guess it's somewhat similar

I don't understand what's wrong with some late-winter warmth?

Then again, warmth and heat is what I love, my climate is usually the opposite of that,
I usually see 1/10th of the warmth I'd like and 100 times the cool/cold I'd ever want,
and my sanity has already been tested close to its limit many times.

When driving my car is usually between 92-96 F anyways when it's not too muggy outside.

Perth gets almost continuous sunshine from November to April and the same for Darwin but applies to the "Dry" which runs from April to October. Late winter-spring in Sydney sees the highest amount of sunshine on average, also autumn too in some cases, varies yearly. February and June often sees the least amount of sunshine. Put it this way, Australia is very sunny compared to the UK especially where winter sunshine is concerned.

In the Kimberely and Pilbara , Yes. In Melbourne however, you'd be replicating London's extreme cloudiness.

Btw, Perth is not the perpetual sunshine and heat heaven that people here are banging on about. They get some strong cold fronts in winter which bring extended periods of cloudiness, cold and rain, so beware. Like any other location on the southern half of Australia, it is prone to some truly garbage weather in any time outside of summer, but some summer months can be cold. It is not the Sahara desert that the Perth residents on this forum seem believe it is.

Lol.....100F is much more than "some" late-winter warmth , and they suffer through 6-8 months of that weather so I see why it would be annoying. How annoyed would you be if it was below 0F in late August?

Melbourne gets 600-700 more hours of sunshine than London!

If you want some climate facts about Perth:

I was trying to be funny and downplaying their conditions;
a British tradition perhaps where Canadian weathermen might call a 15 F drop from 50 F highs "a little cooler."

Besides if it were me living there, I probably would not be "suffering"...
say 70/30 chance I'd be enjoying their late winter heat.
(if I wasn't, it'd either be work-related, or because I'm already sick )

It was 104 F in my car today, thanks to sun heat.
The dewpoint is only 56 F so I didn't need to open the windows to keep from sweating.

100 F (38 C) with low humidity is not extreme while in the shade,
so I have no idea why you equate it with 0 F; (-18 C)
(is it because of the crazy Dutch who invented Fahrenheit? )
Windchills below 15 F (-10 C) can be very trying to say the least,
and I would agree comparable to 100 F heat while out in the bright sunshine.
