This May, the average temperature for Sydney this year has been at a record high: 24.5 degrees (that's about 76 degrees Fahrenheit).

Don't forget that we're a week out from winter here.

Tomorrow the forecast is for 28....that's 82.5 Fahrenheit. I'm not complaining, but it is VERY weird....it's almost summery...

We've had a couple days of mid-upper 20s here in Vancouver over the last 2-3 weeks as well, days that rival some of our best july/august weather. It seems like records are broken year after year these days.

We are just getting a few days of warmer normal May temps here. That is a month behind where we normally are. The weather is wonky worldwide seems.

You're heading into summer, yes? We're heading into WINTER (it's one week away). This more than a little weird...there are people at the beaches, swimming...

Even here in San Diego, where the weather can get coolish (by our standards) in winter, winter was basically a non-event. I didn't need to use the heat in my apartment much and there was almost no rain, which we desperately needed. Strange, indeed.

Yea, realize you are heading to winter a week away just saying the weather is wonky everywhere. We just finished 6 months of winter with no real spring and right into summer. Had snow on the ground until the start of May. The longest and coldest winter I have seen in 60 years.

We had an incredibly cold winter, one for the record books as far as the length and depth of cold goes. But that's not unusual for Maine. As I write, a friend tells me she's experiencing colder than normal weather in Nova Scotia and normally they're ahead of us in spring warm up. But our turn is coming. We're headed back into the freeze at least one night this week. But again, not unusual for Maine.

I absolutely hate this hot weather.

50-75 degrees Fahrenheit is absolutely perfect to me.

January 18 last year in Sydney it reached 45.8. That's 114.44 Fahrenheit. I sat in a movie theatre as long as I could that day. There was also a strong, dry wind blowing. It was truly awful. I am NOT looking forward to what's coming this summer.

Here in the Midwest and North East (US) we had a rather long and hard winter. Just ask my generator.
