    It's to do with the Asian Monsoon pattern apparently.

    My wife has been here in the UK for over 7 years now. She has almost acclimatised. It has taken some time to get that far. I mentioned Oss’s post above to her and she laughs at that sort of thing now. I sometimes feel the cold more so than she does these days.

    If she's living at a relatively high altitude, possibly high on the slopes of Mount Katanglad, it may drop to that temperature. We have land near Epol Falls up at 1,300m and it drops to that sort of temperature at night.
