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:
Thursday Fine. Min 6 Max 21 Friday Mainly fine. Min 12 Max 25 Saturday Fine. Min 12 Max 30 Sunday Shower or two. Min 15 Max 22 Monday Fine. Min 10 Max 23 Tuesday Fine. Min 12 Max 28
I swear, this gets earlier and earlier each year.
I think you’ve detected Spring. I would say Summer needs maximums over 25 for the week.
Plus we’ll have to see if the temperatures actually reach that forecast. Maybe the bureau has predicted summer but it won’t actualize yet!
Yep – it was mid-30s in Perth yesterday – feels like summer – switched the aircon from “heat” to “cool” in preparation
I blame Daylight Savings (sic)
Given it’ll get down to freezing point at a few places around the state tonight, I don’t think we’re quite at summer yet…
