Overnight warmth?

I guess someone forgot to tell the Australian Bureau of Meteorology that minimum temperatures generally do not occur overnight:

"Average spring minimum temperatures are also favoured to be warmer than normal across most of the country, with the exception of Queensland's southern half and the northeast half of NSW (see map). The chances of increased overnight warmth (averaged over the coming three months) are between 60 and 80% over most of Australia. Or to put it another way, for every ten years with ocean patterns like the current, about six to eight would be expected to warmer than average in terms of overnight temperatures averaged over spring."

Deep statistical analysis of temperatures to come soon....promise!
