99 and Counting

The temperature in Melbourne today has already gone past 20 degrees. SO what?

Well that means that it is a run of 99 days in a row with the maximum temperature has been over 20 degrees Celcius. The previous record days in a row was 78.

Tuesday the 8th of December last year had a max temperature of 17.8 degrees. Since that date the daily recorded maximum temperature has been over 20.

I wonder if the newspapers will pick up on the 100 days in a row tomorrow if it reaches the forecast 28 degrees?

Oh yes Mags, I did quite well in high school and at University in Statistics.

I thought it was interesting that we have had such a long run of warm weather without those bitterly cold summer days. I was not going to mention anything on climate change because such a short timeframe is really just weather.

Oh and now I have that song stuck in my head!!!

You are real lucky guys; really jealous of that weather you have over there.

Hope to visit down under one day.

Jayne - Hey you know my view on that one! Funny how my friend Andrew has not commented on the dam for quite a while now.

SJD - Happy to have you aboard from abroad!

It certainly has been a long run of mild weather over summer here. It looks like it will continue too. Already 22 degrees at 8:30am in Melbourne.
