For the weather here I'm speaking in general terms over my 11 years (nearly) here.
It's not bad at all here in winter.
The main thing to remember is that we don't had those gloomy,low cloud miserable days that turn into weeks.
Might be 16c rain in the morning then sunshine in the arvo, temp then drops back down as soon as the sun goes down.
Far more dry days when you can get out in sunshine than the UK. Nice brisk walks on the beach and so on. We go for a lot of drives out/picnics/walk the dogs in Kuitpo Forest.
In Winter there are still days that will top up the tan - dunno if I'd fancy laying out on the beach though!
Autumn and is in her full glory at the moment. Cooler nights and mornings but I still managed to get sunburnt fishing on the boat in 27c Next few days look to be around 21c but dry. Just nice for getting some jobs done around the house.
Spring is much the same with a sense of anticipation, mid October should start us to see 30c. Very pleasant.
Summers can be very hot and dry, the highest I've personally experienced was 47.5c
It was only for a day and rapidly cooled down.
Normally temps of late 20'c's to mid 30c's are the order of the day.
String together a few mid 30c days and it start to become a heatwave. More uncomfortable on a night if it does not cool down.
It is a very dry heat normally with not too much humidity so you can stand the higher temps.
Saying that............ this last 12 months have not been quite average.
Last winter was wetter and colder than normal with quite a few gloomy days.
Summer really never happened to a great extent.
Much more rain and higher humidity.
I think the weather has gone mad globally or possibly a natural shift in the El Nina ??
Thanks Tyke, that's fantastic. I think you're right about the weather being a bit off everywhere but at least it gives us an idea.
As for the electric blankets, they are selling out cant get them anywhere except the chichester branch (and cant order them online anymore) but dont have king size only double. Does it matter that much? if we bought a double for a King size bed - the guy rekons it would just take a bit longer to warm up. I was wondering if it might be uncomfortable if it doesnt get to the edges? We would put it under a matress protector. What do you think? was thinking of dashing over to Chichester as we can buy them with our nectar points I have just enough. Looked at Argos but they are a lot more expensive.
weve got to sell the house yet and we wont go till we get a good price so it might be that time that we go as well lol
ive got to get off pia and bake some cakes with my baby (hes 4 hates me calling him my baby) bye bye
