Not that but minus 50 degree weather to!

I guess I could like cold weather over hot weather, although warm weather (70-80 degrees) is the best. I think that it is much easier to get warm in cold weather than cool in hot weather, eh?

Absolutely!



I'm just wandering, ohboy.

This is going to be a silly question here, but I'll ask anyway.

I am curious here and I guess I'll check it out on google.

70-80 degrees. I wander what that would convert to in Australian weather?

Hmm. I don't really know the unit of measuring temperature in Australia. All I know that one of us (U.S./ rest of the world) uses the metric system, and the other does not.


All I know is that 70-80 degree weather is cool. It is neither cold nor hot, but somewhere in the middle. More like lukewarm, I believe. Temperatures in that degrees would likely be considered a "nice day" in America. Does that nonscientific answer help at all?

Wow yes it does

Thats what I think I wanted to see.

What sort of weather constitutes 70-80 degrees.

Thanks ohboy with the informative answer there.

Anytime.

Just curious, Angvav, what is the unit of measuring temperature in Australia (figured this was on topic with the fires, considering that it must be pretty hot in Victoria right now), and what would be a nice day in Australia?

What would be a nice day in Australia is perhaps 20-25 degrees.

25 would be warm.

Anything over 30 degrees would be hot.

Below 20 would be cold.

Hope that helps.

Interesting to see the degree of difference in weather in the states and oz.

Even though we use "degrees", the measurements are quite different.

Wow. 20 degrees for us would be snowy and freezing. That's something Americans would see in Alaska.

By the way, how are the fires in Victoria (I think that's the region) now? And is the air really smokey and polluted like it was after the Californian fires?

Ooooh yeah.

50 houses got burnt in Bendigo, which is an hour away train trip from my house.

But there were fires in different spots.

Bendigo, kinglake, flowerdale, kinglake west

The weather was cold for several days, which I don't think helped much.

181 people died

I tell you something though.

Theres been smoke passing over the uburb I live in for days.

The cold weather didn't help because it didn't rain.

The wind was what made it difficult to fight the fires.

The wind may have pushed the fire somewhere else.

Thank god that didn't happen.

Ugh. I remember the smoke; we had a whole Summer's worth. I hope that the fires die down soon, and whoever did this is caught and punished appropriately.

I agree with you on that point, ohboy!

As for temperature, I'm assuming that celsius is used Down Under...?

Celsius is used in Australia. Fahrenheit is used in the United States.

So, 70-80 degrees in USA is equivalent to about 21-27 degrees in Australia.

20-25 degrees in Australia is equivalent to 68-77 degrees in USA. 30 degrees in Australia is equivalent to 86 degrees in USA.

20 degrees in USA is equivalent to about -7 in Australia.

Here's a temperature conversion site.

Wow. Thanks, Chicken Boo. I learn something new about our world everyday.

After the Sydney fires I remember the sun being red, a constant haze of smoke and ash falling days after.

It feels like we have had a cold snap in Sydney this last week, after having temperatures of up to 45 degress one weekend to pouring rain for the next week and temps dropping to 20 degress - I'm actually looking forward to the 30 degrees they are predicting over the next few days.

we had about 46 for a bit. That's tooooo much.
30 is nice for me too. 25 - 35 is what I'd call a nice hot summer.
