Coldest July day in Sydney for 8 years


From the High Temperatures Are Global Warming But Low Temperatures Are Just Weather department:

A sunny 19 degrees one day, a gloomy 12 the next – only once in the last 15 years has a Sydney day so warm been followed by one so cold, according to

If it doesn’t warm anymore between now and the morning, this has been a rare pair of days. By 4pm today it had only reached 12.1 degrees, after getting to 18.9 yesterday.

“Only once in the last 15 years has a colder day followed one so warm. That was in August 2008, when an 11.9-degree day followed a 20-degree one. In more than 150 years of records there have only been 11 occurrences in total, so you could call this a once-in-15-year event,” Weatherzone meteorologist Brett Dutschke said.

Sydney did have an equally cold day in July last year, so along with that day, this is the coldest July day in eight years. 

The city’s maximum temperature of 12.1 degrees is four below the average maximum for this time of year. For some western suburbs, it was even colder, only reaching nine in Richmond and 10 in Penrith, both eight below average and their coldest day in at least 15 years. (source)

    Julia and Bob can control the weather from Canberra with their carbon dioxide tax – just like turning off and on a giant carbon dioxide cylinder, so any strange weather event we can blame them.
    Sound crazy?
    Not if you use their logic!

  4. C’mon guys, you should all know by now, Global Warming doesn’t just make it hotter, it also makes it colder, and wetter, and dryer, and …

    Funny that the MSM made no mention of last winter in South America being unusually cold. Now, why is that?

  6. This reminds me of a Ripping Yarns episode. I was seriously expecting to see Eric Olthwaite as the author, but there was not nearly enough talk of shovels, or black pudding.
