I've just been entering my temperature and rainfall data for the last month or so. Looking back over May and June, both months are a cooler than usual. In fact the whole year so far has been cooler than usual. Do you have any data?

NIWA puts out averages every month and they have been cooler.
But last year they were much hotter in this region at least
ie its not too meaningful in terms of the shcemes of things it just shows we have big variations in our climate

It may not be meaningful to you, Muri, but I would be interested to know how it has been in other parts of the country, as experienced by the membership here.

It's been cold and cloudy here all year - except for April which was nice and relatively warm.

Thanks Simkin. I was just looking for the usual sort of weather stats comparison we do in here from time to time. Never mind. :)

For us May and June 2011 were exceptionally warm compared to previous years and surprisingly May and June 2012 are about average 2008 - 2010.
To-date June still needs more rain to come up to average 100mm.

Thanks, Robbie.

I now have records going back about 17 years, which I've averaged in total and in five year increments. The last couple of years were much warmer and this is feeling rather cold again, although not out of line with some of those periods' data.

It doesn't mean anything in particular, but as a grass farmer, it helps inform my other observations.

My father has rainfall records going back to the 1960's and possibly as far back as the late forties. It would be interesting to compare those with yours, Ruth. Different part of Northland but I would suspect the trends would be similar.

Northland is extremely variable though. Ronnie and I often compare records and while I used to get more rainfall than her, things have changed in the last three or four years, and now she's regularly getting more than me - different ways the fronts and low-pressure systems come across the country. Mind you, the larger trends would presumably be the same.
