Monthly Statistics 2005 - 2007

(From manual rain gauge and thermometers)

Since acquiring a Stevenson screen on 19 Dec 2006 it appears likely that the "at tree" maximum temperatures listed here are 1 to 2°C below the likely true readings for this site (if the thermometers in the Stevenson screen are as accurate as claimed by the manufacturers).
