    Watching overall rainfall is misleading because of differences in natural rainfall patterns.
    With 150 or more years they can find regional expected extents. Showing that would be similar to showing the US. I lived in an area that had an average rainfall of less than 3 inches and now live where 3 inches is not unheard of in a week. I experienced 7 inches during a 2 week period a few years back. Just since October this year I have had more than 3 inches. Fall is the dry season here!

    That map seems to say that everywhere in Aus. has seen rain this year?
    Surely that’d be news?

    There is an excellent site run by Warrick Hughes with a bit of information regarding BOM predictions and actual results.

      Looks like our BOM and the Met Office are cut from the same tree.

      It’d be interesting to do a comparison of how other government run meterology offices are faring, and compare to those that are privately run.
