Just checked the weather for the first 2 days in Melbourne (it is an indoor/outdoor pool)… 17 degrees (62F) and rain. Of course it can be 40 degrees at this time of year!

Looks like the whole meet will be 22 degrees or cooler. People travelling from the nothern hemisphere hoping for lovely summer weather are gonna be disappointed.

Even where I am near the Gold Coast it’s lower than usual at 26 degrees.

The meet should be indoors. Or in Qld.
