One thing the scientists said about global warming was that we can expect to experience marked shifts in the weather patterns. This is only too evident from the rainfall we have experienced over the last couple of months. Last month was the driest April since I began keeping record 12 years ago at Rhode Hill. (see post “Well below average rainfall for April now certain”)

Now May with currently 113 mm looks set to ‘better’ the previous wettest May (124 mm) over the same period. Already we have had nearly double the average May rainfall for the years 2000 to 2005.

Although nationally last month was the wettest May for 20 years we only managed 114 mm at Rhode Hill. In the last 12 years this was bettered in 1994 and 1996 by about 10 mm in both cases, although at that time my measuring equipment may have been questionable and could have over read the amount of rain. All the same May 2006 had 1.77 times the average May rainfall for the six years from 2000 to 2005.
