Australia: Coldest March night in 31 years
March 6, 2009
Temperatures in parts of New South Wales and Victoria have plummeted in the last few days, a stark reminder that we are albeit, just into Autumn.
Overnight minimums have been particularly low, with places such as Orange in NSW creeping to 1 degree last night. Even Sydney only managed 14 degrees, with nearby Liverpool not even making 10. However, it was the around the ranges of southern NSW and eastern VIC that the cold has bitten hardest. Perisher, NSW recorded a low of -7 degrees, that’s 10 below average and their coldest March night in at least 31 years.
