Freakish Weather In City
Sydney weather continued to be freakish to-day, the minimum temperature being 48.8 degrees at 3.45 a.m., which the Acting State Meteorologist (Mr.. Newman) admitted was really, cold for late spring.
The reading was the lowest in November since November 1. 1936, when it was .1deg. colder.
On November 7. 1934. the minimum was 47.7deg.
The temperature at 9 a.m. to-day was 61deg. — 4.2deg. cooler than at the corresponding hour yesterday.
The disturbance which was responsible for yesterday’s weather change whisked Kiandra, on the Alps, back into winter.
The temperature never rose above 35deg„ and once touched 27deg. Kosciusko, too, reported a
minimum of 27deg.
The depression is moving eastward, although Kempton, on the Central Tablelands, and Crookwell and Michelago, on the Southern Tablelands this morning reported snow.
Mr. Newman expects the weather to continue cool in Sydney, with the possibility of a shower. Showers at night are also probable.
