Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
here in Sydney we finally have autumn or maybe even winter after a very looooong summer.
Since Easter I've been sleeping under a fine woolen shawl & it is only in the past few weeks I've got my thin blankets out & finally got my down quilt out late last week. I also brought out fleecy & woolen stuff for daytime wear.
forecasts for this week in Sydney are up to 20C max, with nights 12-14 + rain. Latest temp recorded (7.10pm Tues) is 13.8C
National summary for April - (May figures will be released in the next few days, but it has been warmer than normal)
Australia's April mean temperature second-warmest on record (2.00 °C above average)
