So I’m trying to declare Winter. I’m going to try something like Summer, but with a 16 degree ceiling, which we just hit here in Melbourne.
Monday 16 June Max 16 Rain at times, easing.
Tuesday 17 June Min 10 Max 16 Partly cloudy.
Wednesday 18 June Min 8 Max 16 Mostly cloudy.
Thursday 19 June Min 8 Max 16 Partly cloudy.
Friday 20 June Min 10 Max 15 Shower or two developing.
Saturday 21 June Min 9 Max 15 Morning shower or two.
Sunday 22 June Min 9 Max 16 Partly cloudy.
I also offer the observation that you know it’s Winter when it doesn’t feel cold anymore.
Note: The 15 degree ceiling was hit on Friday 4 July 2014, 14 degree on Wednesday 9 July..
Four days before the start of Winter, I’ve declared the end (our second) Summer:
Wednesday 28 May Max 18 Shower or two.
Thursday 29 May Min 10 Max 19 Partly cloudy.
Friday 30 May Min 10 Max 19 Partly cloudy.
Saturday 31 May Min 10 Max 19 A little rain developing.
Sunday 1 June Min 10 Max 17 A few showers.
Monday 2 June Min 12 Max 17 Shower or two.
Tuesday 3 June Min 10 Max 18 Morning shower or two.
Given recent events pointed out by DavidC, I declare Summer 2014 has started. Our traditional, mid-year Summer.
Wednesday 14 May Min 10 Max 21 Mostly sunny.
Thursday 15 May Min 13 Max 22 Partly cloudy.
Friday 16 May Min 14 Max 22 Mostly sunny.
Saturday 17 May Min 13 Max 22 Mostly sunny.
Sunday 18 May Min 12 Max 21 Partly cloudy.
Monday 19 May Min 12 Max 21 Sunny.
Tuesday 20 May Min 14 Max 21 Partly cloudy.
Good thing you guys voted in that Abbott government.
The upside of climate change is that I get to paint the house this week. Two weeks before the start of Winter.
The seven-day forecast for Melbourne makes today the last day of Summer:
Wednesday Max 16 Showers mainly this morning.
Thursday 1 May Min 7 Max 18 Partly cloudy.

Of course, Summer persists while any temperature in a week is 20 degrees or above.

Tuesday 3 September Min 11 Max 25 Partly cloudy.
Wednesday 4 September Min 16 Max 26 Shower or two developing.
Thursday 5 September Min 16 Max 20 Shower or two.
I declare summer whenever there’s going to be 7 consecutive days in a row above 19 degrees. Previously, the earliest Summer has started was mid-September, but typically it’s been moving forward from October or November.
Remember we’ve got an election coming up in a week’s time, and that’s your opportunity to repeal the carbon tax. Which we need to do, to keep lovely balmy weather happening in winter-time and to keep the cost-of-living down. Remember: carbon-dioxide is food for plants, and as such good for the environment, which is made out of plants. That’s just science.
I declare summer whenever there’s going to be 7 consecutive days in a row above 19 degrees. And as such:
Friday Max 22 Shower or two.
17/09/11 Min 10 Max 25 Shower or two developing.

21/09/11 Min 13 Max 22 Morning shower or two.
22/09/11 Min 12 Max 24 Mostly sunny.
It’s a good thing that global warming is a beat up by the greens, a front for communist interests trying to take control of our lives and introduce excessive and unneeded regulation – or else I might be worried.
I have a algorithm for detecting summer. Seven consecutive days in a row with a temperature of or above 20 degrees Celsius. I give you Summer, from the Bureau’s seven day forecast for Melbourne:
Forecast for Monday Max 20I should also point out that I consider there to be two seasons in Melbourne: Nice-but-hot (summer-ish) and a-bit-iffy (winter-ish).
Forecast for Tuesday Min 8 Max 24
Forecast for Wednesday Min 10 Max 25
Forecast for Thursday Min 12 Max 28
Forecast for Friday Min 16 Max 29
Forecast for Saturday Min 18 Max 28
Forecast for Sunday Min 16 Max 26
