Talking Raincoats in Melbourne??

A quick question - we're making a flying visit to Melbourne in early August... Hubby says the kiddies won't need raincoats, just a fleece/jacket. Me, I'm expecting deluges. I've looked at the climate figures, but, for those of you who actually KNOW, is he right or am I?

Would you be so kind as to leave the raincoats - so much in your debt should it rain.

May is usually our wettest month although this year we hardly got any rain. They will probably need their Fleece / Jacket most of the time but you can't rulle out the odd heavy shower or two in August.

THANK YOU.... y'see - he's from Queensland and most of the time their weather seems to fit into neat little seasonal patterns. I figure that one of the attractive things about Melbourne's climate is that it's unpredictable - I lived in the Middle East for a while and HATED being able to predict the temperature months in advance. Anyway, raincoats it is. xxxxx

Call me practical but I've got a jacket with a waterproof outer and a fleece liner which I take!

If your Jacket has a hood you should be ok because the rain isn't usually heavy but if not then consider a little brolly you can keep in your pocket/bag etc.
