Yes, it's total mayhem with all the unscheduled forecast updates.
What's going on?!
In "bigger news", to state the obvious, Melbourne had a cooler-than-average January, with a mean maximum of 25.2 degrees; the overall mean maximum before they moved the Melbourne station to Olympic Park a few years ago was 26.
However, the overnight low average was higher than the ~155-year mean: 15.4; the overall ave is 14.3.
We had 5 days reach 30 or above (plus another day getting to 29.9); the overall average is 7.8 days.
We had 3 days reach 35 or above; the overall average is 3.6 days.
We didn't have a day that reached 40; the average is 0.7 days (or seven 40-degree days every 10 years, on average)
