So firstly how's the drought going? Actually May looked liked the rain was going to be below average as it never rained for nearly 2 weeks. From the 16th May through to the 28th May there was not one drop of rain! then on the 28th May we had 30 mm of rain in one day which took the rain levels well above average. 30mm of rain is really exceptional.
How about Temperatures? Interestingly so far in 2012 we have had 3 of the months at below average temperatures. May was just below average at 0.01 degrees cooler than average even though the press has been full of articles stating how warm it has been. There were some days above 25 degrees and the last 10 days of the month was generally nice and warm, it was warm enough for I to consider putting the air con on. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the year pans out!
