    Talking What's the weather?

    What's the weather like? Up here it's a muggy day with the sun shining. About 30C and 90% humidity. Time to sit on the deck and raise a few of your favorite.

    Cheers all

    Sounds like winter is starting to set in NZ. Good for computers though.

    Default Winter is coming

    Well after two mornings of heavy frost and with last night dipping below freezing I guess it's safe to say that winter is around the corner.

    Now it's time for another passion of mine - snowmobiling All I need is 12" of snow and I'll be set

    Sorry BB_One, but this link will probably make you mad.

    We just finished with the monsoon season so things are starting to cool down a bit. Only expecting low 90's for the rest of the week, sunshine every day.

    Sigh there's been so much rain around here recently I'm beginning to think we live under the see, peeking out of our window. We haven't really had a summer, just rain, though I would only moan that its too hot. Some snow (for a week) would make a nice change! Eva 2000 would have a name for a pommie like me, when it comes to the weather, we are never happy - but sometimes we should remember to be thankful for what we do get.

    BB_One - - I would rather shovel than rake leaves - blasted things get every where. I like fall but it has not been much of one with temps dropping below freezing overnight and it barely makes it to double digit temps in the day. If it's going to be cold then let's get on with it and snow. I get a little excited to know that winter is just around the corner and I'll be ripping around the trails.

    glorfy - typical English weather? Makes up for last summer I bet. Our summer has been abissmal - one to erase from memory.

    RH - what kind of weather report is this "Sunny 86°F Feels Like 85°F". Is this because of a wind chill factor or an arid-dex factor? I've been in your area before (March-April-ish) and want to visit again. What's the weather like over the winter? if it stays at 90F with sunshine then I should make my way down.
    PS - what is a "monsoon" by your reckining?

    Its crazy down here, according to the “Heat Index” it actually feels cooler then what it is. Since the humidity is so low, any sweat is evaporated very quickly so you feel cooler.

    I’ve seen the humidity levels drop down to single digit numbers.

    The winter down here is strange also, it can get below freezing at night then back up to the mid 60’s during the day. Very wide temperature swings.

    The Monsoon season starts around mid August and runs into early October. This is when the warm humid air comes up from south west or east. We get very heavy but isolated thunder storms. This accounts for about 85% of our annual rainfall which leads to flash flooding, copious amounts of lightning, and some hail.

    Funny story, when I first moved here and into the house, my family was still in Florida. Living by myself, I only used one of the bathrooms in the house. I had noticed a smell of sewage coming from one of the other bathrooms and when I went in, all the water had evaporated from the toilet bowl, very strange. So I had to make sure I used the other toilets in the house, ensuring water stayed in the bowl.

    Sounds like an interesting place to be. I heard of traps evaporating even up here but only after a place has not been used for some time.

    I've been there when the humidity level is next to nothing and temps over 100F. Absolutely gorgeous out on the patio with a beer and outdoor AC.

    Sounds a little too cool for a winter visit, though. Thought it would be neat to see X-mas lights on catii .

    Rotorhead..LOL! well I have lived through that kind of weather all year round for 10 years or so ( Lived in the Middle East and Africa). Seen many days of sunshine...so back to Canada kind of makes for fun actually and diversity in terms of weather. Nice place you live.

    Glorfy, I can honestly say that not one single time that I went through your country did I ever see sunshine....mind you often I was only stuck in Heathrow...but laddy honestly I don't think I could live in your country. I was asked to transfer to Farnsborough for 2 years and I decline!

    Snafu, Ya I am obviously pulling your leg....winter not half bad specially in the country. BTW, we started getting below 0c temp at night since mid August up here...not every night but many nights..enough in fact to blast away the garden!

    BB_One,
    Below 0 in August - okay I'll admit that's a bit too early for me . Not much chance for much to grow when it gets that cold. Fall is nice during the day when the sun is out and the air is crisp but shivering in August is just not right.
    Sounds like you get stationed all over the place. Are you now stationed up in northern Quebec? One day I am hoping to make a sled trip across the border. I hear the trails are fantastic and probably better than over here.
    Bon soir

    Did travel extensively was working for an International Company in the Telecommnunication/Network Sales & Engineering field. Now settled at home and enjoying life....actually not that far north from Montreal only a 100 km...so what the heck is/was this freezing nights in August?? go figure...dunno. Was minus 4 c last night and seems to head same way again tonight.

    Trails, better then ur end? Frankly dunno...but if they are anything like the roads...crap someone is lying to u..lol!

    However given the fact that the sport is very popular here, trails maintained by Snowmobile associations and the Goverment got nothing to do with it, I bet the trails are better then our roads also.
