Is it COLDER this year than normal?

Postby woodchuck » Mon Jul 29, 2019 11:40 am

It seems this year it is colder as compared to other years.
I have been in Peru for almost 8 years & it feels colder (in Lima department) than in previous years.
Are there any reasons for this or am I just getting older & minding the cold more?
Thanks for your help.

G'day Woody,

Yes, in my opinion it is colder this year....but not sure why that is...maybe something to do with ocean currents temperatures near out coast??
We also live in Lima (Los Olivos) for 2 years now and we have noticed that it is a couple of degrees lower than 2018, coupled with misty rain almost every night/morning.
It doesn't really worry me much, but my Peruvian missus feels it badly.
I was kinda used to 1C to 5C winters back in Aussie, but after acclimatising here for 2 years, I am starting to feel the "chill" a bit.
Cheers,
W

I guess this is a "getting older" issue.
Thanks.

It has certainly been a wetter year, too. I mean, it never really rains of course, but there has been a lot of heavy mist in the morning along the coast in Lima.. much more than usual.
