Wow, an American ignorant about the English language. WHAT A SURPRISE.

Sarcasm, I promise. Parodying myself, if anything.

In any case, a cool change is - rather unsurprisingly - what you get when a cold front suddenly rocks up after you're being brutalised by scorchingly hot temperatures. It's a term used by the Bureau of Meteorology here, but if Wikipedia's to be believed, it's a local term in southeastern Australia (perhaps because not many other places experience such rapid temperature changes with such frequency?): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cool_Change

Well, there's a bit of a difference. A cool change describes a specific phenomenon. For example, a cold front is coming if it's 32 on Monday, gets down to 16 overnight, and is 24 the next day. That's gradual. A cool change is when it's scorchingly hot, say 41, in the middle of the day, and then seemingly out of nowhere, the temperature plummets 15 degrees in as many minutes.

I'm tempted to use Dismal, TN. Just because I don't like TN.

Have a good one!
