Friday was a nice day to be indoors.
The blast of cold, wintery weather saw the temperature fail to climb into double figures.
While we know we live in a cold climate, there were only two days last year that failed to get to 10 degrees.
In 2019, both May 11 and August 11 were the only days when the maximum temperature for the day was in single figures.
At least the weekend is looking to be a little warmer, with an expected maximum of 12 degrees for both Saturday and Sunday.
The average maximum temperature for days in May in Armidale has been 16 degrees, over the period since records have been kept, which is since 1994.
In those 26 years, the coldest day recorded in May in Armidale was 20 years ago, when the temperature only reached 5.5 on May 30, 2000.
