It's Cold ! Weather reports in the media.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

"Yeah the locals all have their jackets/hoodies and beanies on. First time I have worn jeans in a while! Only my second winter so I assumed the high 20s like last year was the norm. Bugger"

In my village all.moto drivers dress like Nanuk.from the north.

Coldest I have had in Temple Town was 18 with a strong wind. Pretty cold if you are on a bike.

hey, I got caught out last year because I was staying away from home and only had shorts and t-shirts with me. And it was actually cold (well, relatively). I haven't worn jeans since, but as you say all the locals do all the time.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

It probably was that with the wind chill. I was out birding at 6 am in shorts and a T-shirt. Not too pleasant.

Must be that global warming I've heard so much about, no that's right, the new buzzwords are climate change.
A swallow does not a summer make, just as a cold front is no indication of climate behavior, regardless what the Trump brigade thinks.

The climate has been having drastic changes since its birth. Some a lot more drastic than seen in recent times.

no need to derail this thread with climate change debate
that is a warning
this forum is about Cambodia, not a battleground for usa politics

Well said Frank,
It is amazing that one minute we can be discussing the welfare of a fellow expat and then suddenly flip to what make and model of watch he is wearing.
Keep it focused.
Just my thoughts,
Happy new year all.
