climate in Australia
I thought I'd move this discussion to the off-topic board - especially since the threaded discussion was getting extremely indented!
116 degrees... That was where I grew up, not where I live, but it's not much different here, maybe 2 degrees cooler in the day and 3-4 warmer at night (I grew up in the outback near the desert - hot days, chilly nights).
Yes, we have snow in Australia, in the mountains in NSW and Victoria. But we aren't known for our skiing holidays
It sometimes snows at lower elevations but not often and if it does it melts quickly and doesn't build up. And it never snows in the west, the outback (80% of Australia!)or the top end (Qld and NT).
I saw snow for the first time at the Grand Canyon!!!!!!!
ps - you can always go swimming when you're so hot you've resorted to nakedness!
Is all of Australia in about the same climate zone? I've never been there, and I don't know much about it. (Maybe I should put going to Australia on the "dream list" I'm working on.)
