[Weather] Response to Melbourne’s Temperature dropping 11 degrees over a few minutes

Standard

Where I read the article:

Wild weather strikes south eastern Australia, but we promise you, the weather has not gone mad. Mostly

Commentary:

I’ve lived in Melbourne all my life and yes the weather here is changing all the time. 

“THE cold front has hit Melbourne. Tullamarine Airport plummeted from 18 degrees to 7.7 in a matter of minutes this evening, while the Yarra river is bursting its banks.”

I was at Melbourne CBD today and I looked outside the window at around 3:30pm. It looked humid and warm outside, and frankly you couldn’t see any signs of rain coming. But then before an hour even passed by, I could tell that the room was getting darker as the dark clouds were. Suddenly, it was starting to rain and the temperature outside went from 18 degrees to 7.7 degrees Celsius, making me all soaked by the time I was at home. Bizarre. 

People around the world have always noted this special feature from Melbourne and in all honesty I don’t quite like it. Not when I thought that I didn’t need to bring my umbrella. Not when I was planning to browse around the streets thinking it would be a good day to. 

Today really challenges the beliefs of anyone who denies Melbourne’s ‘4 seasons in 1 day weather.
