It Will Be a Warm Winter

DO you want the good news or the bad news?
Firstly, you won’t have to pull out your winter coat just yet, meaning we could have a few extra months of sunshine ahead.
But it’s very possible winter could hit us later, potentially ruining our balmy spring months.
University of Melbourne climate scientist Dr Andrew King has looked into the extreme weather patterns around Australia this year so far. So get ready for some Cozy Winters.
It’s obviously been a hot one and 2016 is looking like it’s going to be the warmest year on record. So while we’re now used to all this sunshine, what should we expect from the rest of the year and why is this happening?
Those who like to rug up in their warm woollies might have to face the prospect of not doing that this year.
Sydney in particular is still experiencing temperatures higher than 20C and it’s already mid-May, so it’s pretty hard to believe winter is right around the corner.
