    We arrived four days ago and the weather has been ok., sunny but very breezy. Today though it has been horrid. Cold and wet and quite miserable. We just want to know if it always gets this cold and windy around this time of the year or is this unusually cold? We are close to the coast; is it less windy thre more inland you go?

     

    Cheers Ade & Emma

    Hi, not out there yet but just try to remember what spring is like in UK wet, windy, snow, gales and the very occasional day of sunshine. I cant wait for Spring in Adelaide.

    Hello,

    We are arriving in June 2009, Adelaides winter. It will be October 2009 before we see summer again. Then again thats only 13 months from now, much better than 24 months of winter we have had in UK. Been waiting for summer to arrive for two years up here in Cumbria !!!! Regards... Mitchkeza.:chatterbox:

    Hi there,

    Yes it does always get cold through the winter months.I used to live in the hills and used to go through a few tonne of wood on the old rayburn and woodheater :biglaugh:My best mate was from Queensland and always used to whinge how cold it was!On average in the hills it would reach maybe 5c,and go below zero at night time!!!!

    no it isnt always this cold in adelaide.... we had a record breaking summer last year with like 17 days of over 35 degrees.... we'll be hearing you complaining about the heat then....seriously enjoy the sh*tty english style weather while u can coz there wont be much more of it.

    and you might be like oooo 35 degrees thats awesome....but really it aint...if you gotta work etc in it then its completely shocking!! and when you get in the car and cant breath thats a killer aswell :confused:

    Just come over from Dubai and it was 45 there so wasn't expecting the cold. Was a bit of a shock. Today was lovely though and have dug out a jacket for those cooler days.

    Well said I have been here over 30 years, when we landed it was over 40 and that was before 9am, I will never forget it but wait till it is 42 degs and only goes down to 32 deg at night then lets seen how they moan and any one who loves it over 25 deg cant work for a living, I am an electrician and you should try to get in a roof, if there still cold they could come and work for me.

    Off to the UK on Tuesday for 5 weeks, bet i'll be the one moaning how bloody cold it is then
