It won't get that hot where I live, but we're expecting mid 30C.

Hi Scozz,
You're in the wrong place. Here in God's Country between Christmas and New Year we had seven days in succession with the temperature over 37C.
I definitely had no trouble staying up to see the new year in - it was too hot to sleep.

Well, I think we're having unseasonally mild weather! Where are those lovely, bright, still and frosty mornings?
Nothing but dull days and rain. :-\

I've lived in hot places & cold places.

I don't want to see snow again, and I had enough of 40+C temperatures

Now I live in the sub-tropics, and I'm not moving! :-D

Our high 20's during the day here in NZ don't seem so bad, when I see the 40+ that Australia is getting.

I did see a report on the news that the average temperature for Russia during November was -3C (brrr)


JustJohn Report 7 Jan 2013 16:33

Well, it's 45 and dry here in Rhondda in S Wales. Think we are due for temp to drop into 30's at weekend. So warmer that NZ and about same as Oz. ;-)

So far, this is mildest winter I can remember. And only a few weeks till St Davids Day (1st March)
