Happy (cool!) new year

The last day of 2005 brought a maximum temperature of 42.9 in Melbourne. It was the hottest December on record, and the hottest last day. The Weather Bureau had forecast 42, but one news site published the following report yesterday. I reproduce it here for its irony....

But before you read that, let me pray that 2006 is a year in which the purposes of God bear fruit in your life, and in the international relations of our world.

Melbourne gets cool relief (clicking this link will take you to a later update)

Southerly winds have seen temperatures drop in parts of Melbourne.

The mercury has struggled to hit 30 degrees in the CBD.

At Tullamarine the temperature peaked at 37 degrees just after 11:00am AEDT.

It is now unlikely the scorcher forecast for Melbourne will happen, although it will be hot in the northern parts of the state.

The Weather Bureau's Ward Rooney says the weather will remain fine for New Year's Eve celebrations.

"It will be a balmy night," he said.

"In fact, northerlies will re-establish over Melbourne overnight, so a mild to warm night is the prospect."
