Answered 1 year ago

From Melbourne here. Summer is short. Considering it's warm up there, how long do you think it stays warm up there?

Queensland is a big state. SEQ has more of a winter than NQ. I live in Central Queensland and even during winter the days warm up nicely....rarely wear a jumper all day, just usually in the mornings and nights. Today I am just wearing a summer dress. A couple of years ago we visited Melbourne in September and it was bloody cold🌬, we left home and it was 32° and arrived to what felt like 0° with the icy winds🤣. I would say that 3/4 of our year is summer...it just ranges from fucking stinking hot, bit hot, hot, warm, fucking warmer and then the cycle starts again!

Yeah that’s a better way to describe it.
We don’t really have seasons.
Hot, fucking hot, warm, temperate, and the accessions “it’s a bit chilly today isn’t it” we say with ugg boots on at 18degrees. Those bloody southerly a.

Too long this summer just gone. I grew up in Melbourne, now live in Brisbane, and I really miss winter sometimes. It’s warm about 6 months, winter isn’t really cold compared to Melbourne, but we get a few weeks of cold winter. Been here a few years now and have acclimatised so it feels colder than it used to for me.

Still feels like that in Townsville 😂 Except this year we’ve actually started having a couple of cold days, I actually wore jeans today - but only until around 10am then it got to hot.

I’m a qld immigrant from Jindabyne.
The weather really is as good as it’s reputation precedes it. Summer is around 6-7 months long.
Winter in mild and short, last year it was a Saturday. Everyone wear beanies when it gets below 20. But only till 10am which you’ll be back in a shirt. It’s really only too hot mid decemeber through to January. The rest of the 6 months you basically wake up to 28 degrees every day.
Easter gets a cold snap then we have a nice May and usually the second weekend in June is our last beach day and we won’t be back till mid October. (This is all southern qld)
The water temp rarely goes below 19. Even that’s rare winter water temp is about 20 but August October is the coldest water. The water last weekend was 27

When is gets under 24 degrees we're all wearing snowsuits here... for northerners our "winter" is probably not cold at all.

Well it’s a month out from winter.
It’s 24 today and half the people in town have jumpers on.
Earlier in the week it was 19 and my kids put on their beanies.

I’m on the Gold Coast, hot summer goes for 2 months where is 32-34 ever day and 26-28 most nights
Then there’s 4 months of summer either side where it’s 28-32 every day with nights more around 20.
My kids only wear jumpers for about 3 months a year here sporadically, their school jumpers probably get worn no more than 20 days a year.


It’s hard to generalise I’d say we have a 6 month summer if going by Melbourne climate as a gauge.
A 4 month spring a two month autumn and a 1 month winter.
