weather apr ’17 update IMBY

Draw your own conclusions.

The record of rainfall in my back yard seems to show an increase if using a linear regression or moving average plot on the numbers I have collected since Ken gave me a rainfall collector when we first moved in here back in 1998.

Well, that’s what I reckon anyway.

Even my automatic weather station, although not a thousand dollar outfit, appears to show a sort of increasing temperature trend when mashed up together as shown below! Allowing for breakdowns and resiting it that is.

The rainfall graphs of average versus median and the graph of the nearby airbase rainfall appear to agree nearly on patterns of seasonal rainfall- Most in November/November, and a peak in April/May.
