Same here in Victoria BC Canada. Had a terrible rain/wind snow (probably came from that evil country below us hehhehe). Today it's 9c, still windy, damp and although we are slated to get sun this afternoon, it's raining at the moment and the prospect of any sun is very doubtfull.

Terrific thread - to hear what the weather is like all over the world.

Perfect with me. Just substract 273.15 and you'll have the temperature in Celsius.

BTW I don't know what the weather is like. It's dark outside.

Here in the GA/AL border area they weatherman advised to "dress is layers this morning", as it was VERY cold...37f for a low, 67 and sunny in the afternoon. Being from the north I about died laughing...layers are for below zero up there. F##king pussies!!
