The month was predominately cool and sunny with significantly lower than average minimum temperatures (10.7C / 51.3F compared with the long term average of 12.1C / 53.7F).

Most of the month saw clear sunny days, however on the 24th until the end of the month cloudy and wet conditions prevailed. We had over 100mm of rain in the last 2 days of the month, therefore meeting (and surpassing) the monthly average of around 110mm (total rainfall equated to 135.6mm).

It was also our first month since January that we attained above average sunshine.

Melbourne recorded just 83.7 hours of sun - lowest May total in 48 years and the fourth cloudiest May since records began in 1932.

Sydney city recorded around 135mm (of rain), airport 91mm and Rose Bay 147mm.

The last two days of last month (May) ensured that the downpours which 'fell' did us much good to the point of us getting to/or well above average and also it was our coldest May month in 41 years as well as our wettest autumn in 8 years.
Good bye GW
