On my trip in July 2010, it was forecast to be sunny and mild the Friday that I got there. It was forecast to be sunny and mild on the Sunday that I flew out. It was forecast to be raining with winds of up to 75km/h on the Saturday that I was there.
In fact the Bureau of Meteorology was a little bit off base there; there was very little rain. There were a few spots as I arrived at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to see the European Masters exhibit, but that was pretty much an end to it.
The wind, however, was as advertised; it gusted throughout the afternoon and on into the night. At the time that I left the NGV none of this was apparent, and from this view looking roughly south along St Kilda Road it was easy to think that a major storm was brewing despite the sun continuing to strike the trees in the foreground.
