Awake, thou wintry earth – Fling off thy sadness! Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth Your ancient gladness! ~Thomas Blackburn, “An Easter Hymn” I travelled in Tasmania and Melbourne last week and saw the magic combination of a wet winter and warm days arriving. Blossom and color filled the air, peacocks sunned
We’re set for some great weather this weekend! With beautiful sunny days forecast this weekend across Australia we begin to think that summer is well on its way. We all know that summer in Australia can mean storms, rain, and cyclones if you’re in the right (or wrong) part of the country. But what about floods and drought? What are we in for?
With record rainfall, drought, and high and low temperatures being experienced right across the country recently, who knows what to expect as Australians move into the colder part of the year? There have certainly been some extremes felt by many Australians, not to mention the biggest natural disasters in our history. Now that Winter is here and the weather begins to shift, how can you know what to expect in Australia for the next six months? The answer is in weather patterns.
