There are two kinds of people in the world – those who love winter, and those who don’t. But something we can all agree on is the season has arrived in all its glory.
It would come as no surprise to residents when we say Young endured its coldest day of June last week, that being Wednesday, June 15 when temperatures plummeted to -2.9C.
And if that wasn’t enough, Mother Nature continued to throw the crisp conditions our way with the day’s temperature only reaching 15.5C
While it started out fresh it wasn’t however the coldest day of the month so far, that being recorded on Saturday, June 4 when the temperature reached a maximum 11.1C.
It was also our wettest day this month until yesterday’s rainfall stole the limelight with 22.2mm recorded come 4pm.
On the other end of the scale the clouds had parted on Thursday, June 16 after a -1.3C start to put on the finest day of the month with 17.3C.
According to the Australian Government’s Bureau of Meteorology, the lowest temperature recorded in June 2015 was -4.9C on June 30, with the lowest maximum temperature reaching 8.5C.
The average for the month was 14C.
Looking forward, the next six days will bring perfect weather if you have two webbed feet and a beak as rainfall of between five and 10mm is forecast each day until Sunday.
Temperatures aren’t expected to exceed 14C throughout the week. The coldest days this week, according to Elders Weather Bureau, will come with the weekend as a maximum of 10C is predicted over the two days.
It’s news probably not welcomed by the town’s sporting clubs and supporters who have spent the last few rounds competing in most undesirable conditions.
