    Default So... what's the weather like where you live???

    I am soooooooooooooooooooo sick of the heat. We live in brisbane and I am over the majority of the year being hot. Its makes me grumpy. Today is the first cooler day we have had in a while and I'm in the greatest mood. I love the colder weather. I would love to move somewhere cooler...... not freezing/snowy weather just generally not as hot as here😄 Tell me about where you live. Whats the weather like? Do you enjoy it?

    I'm in Sydney. It's currently sunny but windy with a bit of coolness to the wind.
    It's been a bit 4 seasons in a day of late. Sunny like now and then phishing down.
    It's supposed to be currently 22 degrees which Id say it would be in the sun.
    I don't mind it like this.
    It was pretty rainy miserable just before Easter so it's nice to see the sun.
    I hate the heat so 22 is nice.
    Cool at night, have had to crack the heater out this week.

    I’m in Melbourne and it’s pretty miserable here at the moment. Temp around 16 degrees and cloudy/raining on and off.I don’t mind Melbourne’s weather too much.It’s very variable which I like.I hate the heat (though I prefer Melbourne’s dry heat than the humidity in Brisbane) and used to love winter in Melbourne (cuddling on the couch with wine/movies/books is my idea of heaven!) but since having kids it’s a loooong winter here.I don’t like how sick the kids get in winter and the fact that it’s hard to keep them amused when the weather is too cold to go out.It might be a bit better once they reach school age I guess.I think Sydney’s weather sounds like a good compromise between Brisbane and Melbourne!

    I'm in regional Victoria.

    It's currently 9 degrees at 11am

    Would love to live in Brisbane!

    The worst thing about living here are the endless grey days. It's so miserable for a lot of the year. I don't mind the cold but I hate the gloomy days.

    Also, it is common to experience 4 seasons in one day.

    And then of course summer hits and it's absolutely roasting hot!

    It's 8 degrees today where I am 😳 it's really cold, windy and on and off rain. Yesterday was so cold we had the fire going. Today it's the heater so we don't use all our wood before winter.
    I absolutely love living here though 😁

    I'm in the Hunter Region of NSW.

    It's sunny today, but cold with feral winds. This is the first day it's really felt like Autumn this year.

    You would probably like the climate down here OP There are no extreme temps at any time of the year. Winter and Summer at their coldest/hottest are quite bearable.

    I'm in an outer suburb of Newcastle NSW. In summer we get max's of 40-42 but mostly around 35, it's humid though. At this time of the year it's usually around the 25 mark and in winter we wouldn't get lower than about 12, cold enough for a jacket but not freezing.

    Agree with this. I never noticed the cold winter as much before I had kids.

    Being stuck at home with children during the cold wet days is a major drag.
