    I have lived in Melbourne for two nearly 2 years now, and I have to say the weather is absolute crap. Is it possible to get a week of nice warm weather without rain or clouds?

    I have lived in a number of different cities around the world, including Montreal and London, and I have to say the weather in Melbourne is the worst of the lot. It is so depressing!

    I always thought the weather was similar to Adelaide, but it is not even close.

    The weather has been shit since the drought broke in 2010, before that it was pretty rare for it not to be 25+ and sunny for more then 3 or so days in a row during summer. Certainly hasn't been as cold at nights as it is normally though.

    Last month was alright.

    You needed to reply to him twice to get your point across? :confused:

    You must be either obese or a pensioner if you cannot withstand 39 degrees. 42C here today and spent most of the day outdoors. Enjoyed myself too.

    The heat is okay. Everyones getting around in not much clothing, its more relaxed, its better drinking weather and the beach is great.

    The majority of people that whinge about the heat are the ones that sit around all day and dont do anything usually without A/C which is a necessity for WA homes.

    Just about the time I arrived.:rolleyes:

    To those in the West, yes 39 is fine for a little while, but considering it is now Autumn, that is a little too hot. I think Adelaide has the best Summer and Autumn weather in the country. Look at is this week, 27 and sunny every day - perfect.

    If you could combine Adelaide's Summer and Autumn's with Perth's Winters, I would be a happy man.

    You honestly can't go outside in 39 degrees? 39 is perfect beer weather, beach weather & shorts/thongs weather. Encapsulates everything that's great about summer.

    39 is too high. Optimal Summer temp is about 30 degrees, a little higher or lower depending on what you are doing.

    Agree, it is pretty ridiculous getting low 40's during Autumn.

    Using regular European seasons for Perth is kind of silly. Hottest weather here is generally between the solstice and the equinox, not between Dec 1st and Mar 1st, though you do get mid 30 days about a month and a half months before and after them, but not that consistently.

    I was taught in school that it had a Mediterranean climate.

    I guess they lied.

    I've found the summer days in Melbourne to be very pleasant. After years of the harsh Perth heat, I do thoroughly enjoy the temperate Melbourne climate.

    Despite the hot weather, I never had the luxury of living with air-conditioning when in Perth.

    Perth is too hot. This year I realised that i prefer our beaches too. No seaweed, no sharks just pleasant still water.

    Closest climate I've felt to Melbourne would be the middle to southern coast of Italy. So yeah, pretty Mediterranean.

    Perth gets stinking ****ing hot like inland Spain.
