back in Easter '07 we flew to Canada on Easter Monday (April 9th) - it was a warm easter over here with temperatures around 20 C, and on the aproach to Halifax, Nova Scotia the captain informed us that the temperature was -2 (yes minus two!), and that they'd had 2 feet of snow the day before, so we put most of our clothes on before leaving the airport.
12 months later we were flying back home, Hanoi, Vietnam, via Singapore to Heathrow. Temperatures out there were hovering around 30 with high humidity, and we hadn't checked the weather in England, thinking it would be reasonably warm - it wasn't. It was unseasonably cold, reaching only about 10 in the day, and was 5 C when we landed at 6am. Brrrrr!
remember to check the local weather for the destination when deciding what to wear, and what to pack in carry on.
