Yes it seems to have come back with avengese. It can go away tomorrow as it’s autumn time. Wishful thinking. It’s been a strange season here in southern Vic. We had our dryest January since 1890 and almost our hottest. But had one of our coolest February’s. Now these are real observations from real people.

Yep it's the usual February weather that can sometimes extend into early March. I really don't care about what records are broken or not I'm more interested in getting through my work day. So with the AC playing up in the truck I'm starting at 1am and hopefully done by midday, good night zzz

Went out to Wilhelmia River Vic today and dropped into it. 36C there, but bloody cold-lovely water!
So much gold glitter in the river bed, but swirled away when disturbed, so either mica or pyrites i'd say.

At 5am it was 26 degrees in Melbourne. Expecting 37, 36, 36 over the next three days. Summer's back! cool
Even though it's the first week of Autumn...

Yes some warm weather headed your way. I know its been a cool summer this year because the growth on all the deciduous plants despite having ample water have been much less this season than normal.

It's only the first day of Autumn because some knuckle heads decided to coincide the seasons with the start of the month hmm the Summer solstice sets the season to continue until the 21st March so it ain't Autumn yet.

You're absolutely right, RM, but I've also seen trees that have leaves already turning to Autumn colours too. Saw one last week and thought that Autumn was coming in early this year, with a week of Summer to go - but really it was a month to go, as you said...

Ahh Melbourne... Autumn one day - Summer the next! smile

Righto the thread title is a question and I reckon I might have stumbled onto the answer/s. It seems madtuna and his lot have some explaining to do playful
