Year to date rainfall.

Post  norfolk on Wed Sep 30, 2009 6:53 am

when I saw the YTD rainfall of Caroline Springs to be 219.6mm, I thought I would check and see how that compares to other places around and noticed some very interesting stats. (Figures in brackets are last year's amount up to end of Sep)

Coldstream: 476.8mm (399.4mm)
Bundoora: 349.6mm (317.1mm)
Mt Dandenong: 678.6mm(568.8mm)
Scoresby: 459.2mm (395.8mm)
Cerberus: 483.2mm (418.4mm)
Rhyll: 423.4mm(467.0mm)
Frankston: 521.2mm (435.5mm)
Moorabbin: 353.4mm (326.0mm)
Melbourne: 275.2mm (304.2mm)
Essendon: 230.2mm (241.0mm)
Melb Airport: 222.2mm (252.8mm)
Laverton: 215.6mm (228.2mm)
Avalon: 248.8mm (220.4mm)
Geelong: 257.2mm (250.0mm)
Sheoaks: 239.0mm (279.8mm)
Caroline Springs: 219.6mm (263.0mm)

Even in a small area like Melbourne, the rainfall figures are just amazingly different. And while some places have exceededlast year's YTD rainfall we are still quite a bit behind here. Just thought people would also find these stats interesting.

We've jumped way ahead of last year thanks to a very good September.
746mm compared to 609mm last year. The area around Olinda is on (about) 850mm YTD which I'd guess is the highest in the metro area ATM.

Our average is 1300mm - however - so need 554mm in 3 months to just get average. Love to see that happen!

I'd expect a lot of the year to date totals in central and western areas are still very close to the lowest on record.

PS norfolk did you realise Carline Springs was nearly a desert when you shifted there? The reason we live out east is because of the rain and the lushness this brings.

I have always lived in the western subs of melbourne, so this isn't anything new to me, have always lived in the semi arid regions of melbourne!
