Melbourne weather...




There is a perpetual myth that when you come to Melbourne you should be prepared for four seasons in one day. Yesterday it was hot at around 33 deg Celcius and towards the evening clouds started to build up. As I left work I looked around (if you've never tried it look up for a bit of a change there are some amazing things to see) and saw some awesome clouds. Unfortunately I only had my phone camera and the poor thing didn't cope very well with the contrast.

These are some of the images I took and are only a poor rendition of the colour and drama.

This morning I woke to a storm with lots of lightning, thunder and some very welcome rain.

Melbourne weather can vary considerably when a cool change passes through the city and suburbs. I do believe that the saying 'four seasons in one day' is misleading and can be taken out of context. Many oldies complain when the weather is hot and then complain again when it's cold since their body can't adjust to rapid change in temperatures as well as the younger folk. Since Melbourne is located in a region where the daytime maximum temp can fluctuate greatly from day to day in comparison to Brisbane for example, then you'd expect that some people would whinge about the weather in Melbourne.
