Chasing down the wettest autumn record

Recommended Posts

After 3 consecutive 200mm+ months here (the first time since Nov 2015 - Jan 2016), only 142mm this November so far, making it the driest month since July.  Not many dry days though - lots of drizzly light rain.  Autumn on 688mm, wettest autumn I've recorded, but still some way off the 978mm recorded in winter 2013-14 and 970mm in winter 2015-16.  

Annually the wettest year since 2016 here and only 70mm required to be wettest since 2015.  Very unlikely to be wetter than 2014 or 2015 (would need another 470mm).

Well unless there are rogue showers around the next day we will finish on 226.2mm for the month. 2nd wettest Month on record here since our records begin in 1955. The Autumn rainfall just failed to reach the yearly total for 1975 at 519.9mm. 1975 for the year finished on 521.2mm. Autumn provided 62% of the yearly average. The year is 3rd wettest on record at 1058.8mm  amazing considering April just donated 17.2mm towards the total ! Jan, Feb and May were all dry months with around 50% or less of the average monthly rainfall.
