It seems that these types of climates having a winter rainfall max are unusual. Is there some geographical reason, wind direction etc that causes the rare bucking of the usual tropical trend.

I found this one recently and thought it might fit this thread. Rounded to the nearest one 1C and 5mm of rain.

JAN: 1 - 6C 65MM
FEB: 1 - 7C 55MM
MAR:2 - 9C 50MM
APR: 5 - 13C 60MM
MAY: 9 -18C 45MM
JUN: 12 -21C 40MM
JUL: 15 -25C 30MM
AUG:15 - 25C 35MM
SEP:13 - 21C 45MM
OCT:10 -16C 70MM
NOV: 5 - 11C 80MM
DEC: 2 - 7C 70MM

I was suprised when I found this climate given its place,but it's typical of others nearby, too.

Edit: Found a better source.

Right on. Odd climate spot for a place that far south, not very Mediterranean.
