Icicle weather!

By johnboy 12 June 2009 33

Yesterday morning shocked everyone I think by getting down to -6 degrees.

As I can’t recall the last time I saw icicles I thought it worthy of taking a picture.

Today the Bureau forecasts a whole 12 degrees.

But with the 10.24am update registering a mere 1 degree I’m having my doubts about getting there.

So much for that warm dry winter we were afeared of.

What’s Your opinion?

Our friends at PRIME news reported it was the coldest day in Canberra in 43 years..
It got to 2.6 degrees at Tuggeranong according to the BOM.

I think what was said was that these were the coldest June temperatures – the 4.1 in Canberra was the coldest June day in 43 years, and the 2.6 was the coldest June day temperature for Tuggeranong ever recorded.

Either way, it was a damn cold day.

farnakler: The literal reason was fear of naval bombardment… not so much a concern now as it was 100 years ago…

Then it must be true.

That has to be a crock. We had a day two years ago where we didn’t get above 0°C until after midday and I don’t think it made it past 1°C. That said, I’m sure Prime put a bit more research into their claim than I just did, haha.

They said the same thing on WIN and the ABC.

At least the ice is rock hard at the moment. Makes for some awesome hockey.

FARnarKler. Imagine a huge Bateman’s Bay. It’s bad enough in small doses.

Surely there is nowhere colder in Canberra than the Calwell netball courts at 9am on Saturday mornings?

AGREED!

(I live about 400m away. I understand.)

According to The Bureau we reached a toasty warm top of 4.1 degrees at 2:33pm (I doubt it will go any higher at this point).

And I was wondering weather to rug my horse today. Its literally like a fridge out there!!!
