|11:07 pm - Summer !|
Yup, it reached 20 today, for a while. It felt ... warm. (And a little humid, but you get that living in a nation that's half stone and half sponge)
Another couple of days like this and this will be the week we'll be referring to when various relatives and friends from Australia are visiting and we're saying "Oh, you should have been here a few weeks ago, it was lovely then", while trying to shelter from bitter winds and pouring rain.
Current Mood: happy

Earlier this week in Adelaide, it hit 25.1, 0.5 degrees short of a June maximum temperature record... It was 18 when I got into work at 9am...
Yesterday, Melbourne was 22.3, .1 degrees short of the highest June maximum ever. And it's another fine 20 degree day today.

Our winters are warmer than his summer?
It's only part of them. I'm sure Scotland will be warmer than Melbourne for, oh, at least 2 weeks of the year.
I wouldn't count on it. We were meant to hit 20 today, but got to around 14 (and were glad of it!) - we're yet to meet let alone beat Melbourne's temperatures, this "Summer". (in Berlin)

Well, you could've stayed in Melbourne. ... where, after yet another 20+ degree day, it's now pouring with rain, if that makes you feel any better.
OTOH, it's still about 16 degrees outside, even though it's after 4am, which is pretty astounding for this time of year.
Looks a bit like it, sadly.
Still, Melbourne should settle down to its usual 13-16 range, with the occasional day of 11 or 12 to give people something to call "cold", and (in theory) we should get more nice 16-20ish days. We'll still end up with more rain here, though ...
