Ah! Lovely Spring Weather. And such a contrast to the very warm temperatures expected over Eastern Australia in the next week.

I don't know about the other Eastern Cities, but it doesn't really bother most people in Brisbane. We are quite used to it.
Just like people living in Darwin, they wear jumpers when it is 27'C because that is cold for them but when it is 33'C they don't mind because they are used to that temperature.

It was the hottest Sydney day since February. hot.gif

Due to no sea breeze, it was just as warm on the coast as it was out west. Some western suburbs such as Badgery's Creek, Camden and Penrith only hit 33'C... 1' cooler than the coast.

According to this link, the last time Sydney had a maximum temperature above 30'C (apart from when the west had a top temp of 30-31'C on 10th September) was on 18th April, when the city reached 32'C and the west reached 33'C.
On that same day, Canberra reached 26'C, Brisbane reached 29'C, Melbourne reached 21'C, Hobart reached 17'C, Adelaide reached 18'C & Perth reached 23'C.
Heck, we were as warm as Darwin that day, where it reached 33'C! eek.gif

Hopefully this will be the last of the winter cycle for now. Im sick of clouds. I want 24+ for more than 2 days in a row please Mr Weatherman.

October is our wettest month, so we should be greatful the rain will be around, though some warmer weather would be nice. Infact, give us some Sydney/Brisbane weather. Nice days, storms at night.

It's again a day where the Tuggeranong Valley (where I live) is recorded as having a higher temp. than the Airport (where the main weather station is).

It's (to 3PM) 26 degrees down here compared to 23 degrees at the airport.

According to this link, Brisbane must have had one of the most scorching days in meteorology history during October.
Today, in Brisbane Airport (close to Moreton Bay), it reached 28'C, while Brisbane CBD reached 33'C. However, in around Ipswich, it topped 40'C in Amberley!!!! hot.gif hot.gif hot.gif hot.gif
And there's more scorcher days to come with Brisbane going for 32'C & Ipswich going for 35'C tomorrow. Saturday will see Brisbane expected to reach 36'C & Ipswich reaching 38'C.

Meanwhile, in Sydney, we have a few mild spring days to come, with temperatures hovering around the mid-20s across the metropolitan area. yes.gif

Ipswich and Brisbane City are inland, so arent moderated as much by the sea breeze. Ipswich sure isnt.
Similar in Sydney too.
I guess Brisbane's heat is related to the onset of the wet season. I know Darwin goes from high 20s to mid 30s this time of year, but when the monsoon comes, temps go back to 29-31. I guess similar to Brisbane.

A change of weather pattern will see Sydney going for 28'C tomorrow across the metropolitan area instead of 24'C that was originally going to be.
We also have a Very High to Extreme Fire Danger across Sydney for tomorrow.
Then on Sunday & Monday, it will get mild (around the mid-20s) before warming up again on Tuesday.

In other cities for tomorrow:
Brisbane - 36'C
Canberra - 16'C
Melbourne - 15'C
Hobart - 14'C
Adelaide - 16'C
Perth - 21'C

It seems that Sydney's climate is slowly changed from temperate to subtropical. sorry.gif
On Tuesday, when Sydney is expected to warm up again, the southern cities (Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide & Perth) will have real spring weather instead of early summer weather.

As I've said before, I prefer to live in cities where its climate shows that when it's winter, it's winter & when it's summer, it's summer; not cities which that when it's supposed to be spring, it's summer like Sydney & Brisbane endures. I also hate the high humidity during summer that both Sydney & Brisbane endures. no.gif
