What a difference a day makes

Although we are technically in the middle of autumn (fall), we have been experiencing an extended summer, with clear, sunny skies and temperatures around 29C (84F.) All that changed today. At 1 pm we have a temp of 12C (53F) but it feels colder with freezing rain, small hail and fierce winds. It seems like the weather has suddenly decided it should be on the march toward winter. Then again, this is Victoria. Next week we could be back to extended summer, or into the depths of winter. Does the weather in the place where you live make a nice, orderly progression between the seasons, or is it up and down like a yo-yo, as ours is? UPDATE: It's now an hour later and absolutely bucketing rain, and Gypsy, one of the cats I am currently "critter sitting" is letting me know loudly and in no certain terms that she is totally unimpressed with the weather.

As in the south, so in the north...only opposite. You're getting what should be our weather and we're getting what should be yours. It's like the southern and northern hemispheres are playing ping-pong with the weather.

Yes, our seasons in the southern hemisphere are the reverse of yours.

No, it is not an orderly progression around here.

Very much a yo-yo. We start the morning very nice weather, then it starts getting super hot at like 7am and doesn't cool down until around 8pm. Lately it has been super windy so it has been cooler than normal. Of course in the summer it is just hot, it is just hot, when it is rains it is hot, if it is windy it is dusty hot because so many dust storms.

Not always. In India, it remains hot most of the times. But, I like this weather.

Poor Gypsy. Melbourne has always been known as the 'four seasons in a day' city. I didn't realise it applied to the whole of the state.

Yes, our weather is up and down like a yo-yo. We're getting snow, lots of it. More than they predicted, which is upping their snow totals. It will be interesting to see what the total accumulation will be on Monday. Gypsy seems to know her mind.

It's bucketing rain again today, but the wind is not so bad. Gypsy was so funny when it was blowing a gale yesterday. She was meowing constantly, and I could almost hear her saying, "Make it go away! Make it go away!"

@just4him It's eased off today - still cold and overcast, but not raining and little wind. I actually prefer winter to summer, but the sudden change was a bit much, even for me.
