  • Its Freezing Here...

    Yes, I know...its WINTER!

    But its chilly here...current OAT according to local weather station data is a very nice 0.2 degrees relative. Actual is about 3 degrees. That is at 10pm.

    What is it like at your place?

    (Inside however is a pleasant 20 degrees.)

    (I think Ive mentioned before my interest in weather...)

    8 degrees here but getting colder overnight.
    This morning was only 6 deg but the rain and wind made it seem much colder when standing on the station platform for my train at 5:30am

    I know we need the rain but a couple of degrees high would go astray.
    With any luck the rain will set in for the next 8 weeks or so.

      The weather report on the radiao last night explained why and how that today would be colder.
      They were right.

      I had to duck out about 9:00pm tonight and it was bloody cold out there.
      I back inside now...snug and warm.

      The CS toolbar tells me its "8 degrees but feels like 4" outside.

        8 degrees! Why thats positively balmy TG! ;D

        What was the explanation that the weatherman gave for it being so cold?

        (something to do with the high over us I daresay?)

          From a Queensland perspective
          Could it be THE SNOW

          Anyway Brisbane is 11 Deg currently with a 4 deg min overnight
          Lucky I have a heated water bed

                  Its a gorgeous frost here this morning... My back deck looks like it should be hanging off a ski lodge, not a outback home!

                  And it has reached -1 degree.

                      Went south to Napier (central north island NZ) recently and stopped 50km out of Taupo for the kids (and Dad) to have a snow ball fight. It was 1deg at that point. Got back to the winterless North expecting much warmer weather and we had 2 solid 0deg frosts. Back to over night lows of 13deg now, nice !

                        I really dont mind the cold...after going through the extremes of summer the extremes of winter are a very nice change!

                        Heres a photo of winters first frost out here, taken this morning.

                          Not sure how cold it was last night.... but it was quite chilly. Would take a snap of the front garden but my shutter is frozen closed....

                            im with you scoots, I just like weather. Dont care what sort, weather rules. I like winter because its not summer, autumn because its not spring, and vice versa.

                            I was hoping for some frosts while in the Blue Mountains on the weekend, but nothing happened there.

                            currently thinking to myself that I need a weather station so I can be very accurate with my ambient conditions when roasting. *cough* not because Ive wanted one since I was about 8. no, not at all. :P

                              Suprisingly, the Blue Mountaints doesnt get all that much frost. Something to do with the tree cover I think. Though We used to have 1 inch thick ice on the outdoor school tables during winter.

                              The plains just closer to Sydney get a lot more I think.
