And what's more, it actually stuck! It didn't just melt as soon as it hit the ground! :D
So you have stolen our snow! :wink: :lol: :thumbs: Have fun with it :)

We are around 5°C (sorry, don't know the Fahrenheit) and have rain...

Meh, you can have it back. It's nice every 8 years or so, as a novelty, you know... But when we get the second snow fall in one winter... Well, that's just preposterous. We're over it now. If I wanted to scrape ice off my car every morning, I'd live in Canada. (No offense, Canada... I just don't want your weather.) :wink:

45C in Sydney's western suburbs. http://www.bom.gov.au/nsw/forecasts/penrith.shtml That's about 113F. I've really got to buy a little portable air-conditioner or something one of these days. Shouldn't complain, though. It's like that every day in some places. http://www.bom.gov.au/qld/forecasts/birdsville.shtml

We'll take some of that heat, please. Today's forecast high is -17C / 1.4F. Wind chills right now are around -29C/-20F. We broke a low temp record yesterday; I'm not sure about today.

Monday is supposed to get above freezing, though. :) Great weather for potholes and water main breaks.

News today is that it is "so cold" in Florida (5'c) that the iguana's are falling off the trees!
It's bad lizard conditions! :lol:

Fair weather here in the lower part of the Northern hemisphere - 24-31C but feels like 26. I can hang clothes alright and have them crisp-dry in a couple of hours! Reducing carbon footprint has never been this economical! :thumbs:
Thanks,

It's just past 11:00am (daylight-saving time), and we've just gone through the 40C mark, with several more hours for the temperature to climb.

Did I ever mention that, when Australians go to Hell, they send back for their blankets?

SOTE - what is the normal temperature in the middle of winter for you? Say, around July 6th or so?

Outlier weather events aside...

Winter (June – August)
Sydney’s coolest months are June to August when average temperatures drop between 8.8 - 17°C (47.8 - 62.6°F). Sydney’s rainfall is generally highest in June, with an average of 132 mm (5.2”), while July is the coolest month when average daytime temperatures reach just 13°C (55°F).

Coming up to midday, and the Bureau of Meteorology informs me that it just hit 42C

See, that's what I like about Texas winters. They're about like that. This year excepted.

And having got to a peak of 43C here, it’s gone 2pm, and the norwesterly wind off the interior deserts has just swung around to the SSE.

New South Wales and Texas ... same-sized States, similar weather. Different hats, though. I wear a Size 64 Cattleman myself : https://www.akubra.com.au/shop-product/country/cattleman---bran

If you're dropping hints here, I've got bad news for you... Christmas is over.
