The vagaries of Melbourne’s weather

Last week was such a typical week for Melbourne’s weather. Monday and Tuesday the mercury reached 37° both days. Monday night was particularly hot and didn’t get lower than 25° at night. On Tuesday afternoon we had a ‘change’ – which is a common Aussie weather term – and the temperature dropped 15° in 30 minutes. On Wednesday it was a very cool top of 15° and we then finished the week in the low 20’s. We had 1.5 days of rain which doubled the monthly total. Very weird and very, very different to what we’re used to.

When it does get to the high 30’s it is usually combined with very strong northerly winds which are extremely dry and hot. This makes it very uncomfortable – not quite the same as an Edinburgh November week!
