    Over here in Melbourne it is insane sometimes. We start off sunny, then it gets hot and humid, THEN it gets all cloudy and wet, THEN it pours and sometimes we even get hail all in the same day. It is bizarre and really throws you off when you have to dress up for a night on the town icon_razz.gif

    Anywhere else in the world that has such bizarre all seasons in one day times ?

    Having been out to Seattle Washington area many times, I've noticed some quick changes in weather similar to what your describing. Man that would be rough to plan on how to dress !!! does this happen frequently?

    This is an everyday event in the Great American Midwest! That's why it is always said that if your are tired of the weather , wait 5 minutes and it will change! For instance, tody in Columbus, Ohio, at 1 am it was clear and in the 60's, by 6am it was raining and in the 40's. at noon it was in the 30's and a few snow flurries, by 3pm the sun was out and it was about 50 and now at 9pm it is 40 and foggy, on friday evening, it was sunny and in the 70's,with a thunderstorm in the area, on sunday we are supposed to get a mix of rain and snow in the AM and be cloudy and then into the 60's and 70's by monday! Oh yeah we know the weather rollercoaster too!icon_lol.gif

    There have been times where it's snowed in the morning and been 70 in the afternoon.

    Reminds me of Colorado Springs year round... it's was a pain getting dressed everyday, not knowing which way the weather would turn.

    Layers, boys. Dress in thin layers.

    Leaving vertical climate zones out of it...

    One time, I was driving up on Whidbey Island in the middle of the night, in the summer, between dives, just wearing speedos, and I saw some weird searchlights in the sky, just ahead. I came around a corner into four inches of sleet. The searchlights were the headlights of cars in the ditch. I remember walking around barefoot in the ice, getting dressed so I could help pull cars back onto the road.

    Another time, I left home on a dive trip. It was about 100 F when I left. By the time I got to the boat, it was cold and rainy. I realized that I didn't have any shoes with me. Had to wear wetsuit booties all weekend. The fashion didn't catch on, though.

    Slightly off-topic: Not long ago, due to loss of luggage (Not to be libelous, but a certain large airline, based in Denver, whose name starts with a "C" looses my bag every single time.) I wound up in October in Spain with only what I was wearing on the plane - light cargo shorts, tee and tevas. The rain in Spain also falls vigorously in the mountains, as well as the plain. It was several days before I had time to drive to Sevilla and buy clothes. Meanwhile, from overheard conversations, it seems that I spawned a great reputation for northwest guys. ("They must love the rain... no matter how cold it gets, they never wear shoes...")

    Not quite in one day, literally, but the changes that can take place over a week are almost unbelievable. I live right in the middle of the North American jet stream. If it decides to go north, we get all the warm tropical air from the Gulf of Mexico. If it goes south, we get a frigid blast of arctic air from Canada.

    When it decides to shift all of a sudden, then it really can be two different seasons in one day. I've seen the temperature go from the high-70s to the mid-teens overnight. One year when it did that it had been raining heavily all day, then it all froze overnight. That was the start of a two-week period of temperatures in the teens. The whole city was locked under ice for over a week. Fun times.

    Several times this spring, we have had temperatures in the 70s (even upper 70s) and then had lows in the 20s or 30s soon after. During one three week period we had snow falling one weekend, then it was hot and sunny the next, then the weekend after that we had enough snow to actually accumulate on the ground.

    Nope, here in Arizona (aka "Paradise") it's like cool summer for 3 months, perfect warm amazing summer for 6 months, or hot summer for 3 months.

    Dude, I live in Florida. Our motto here is, "If you don't like the weather wait five minutes."

    Yesterday it was clear skies, about 83degrees Farh....now today it's overcast skies and about 50 degrees!

    Welcome to the Sunshine state!

    In shanghai, you could experience the four-season-in-one-day once or twice all over the year, usually happens in early Spring, or late autumn.

    Here in Toledo, Ohio it does that once in awhile too.
    I think being near lake Erie and Lake michigan has something to do with it. The Jet Stream dances over us a lot too switching back and forth from north to south bringing us a big mix of weather patterns.

    Nope. But I live just inland here in Los Angeles, in Westwood near UCLA. We get something called the "June Gloom" where it'll start off warm during the day and get into the 80s, then in late afternoon, the fog rolls and the temps fall dramatically and you have the swap shorts and tank top for long sleeves.

    Calgary - definitely! They say if you don't like the weather wait a few minutes.

    We certainly can have all four seasons in one day, and over the period of a few days go from snow to shorts and T shirt weather.

    It can snow in any month here and be sunshine also.

    It has to do with the mountains and a weather condition called a chinook wind.

    Great place to visit, just bring your summer and winter gear with you, no matter when you visit.
