I’ve updated the climate pages with the latest data from the BOM.
If this summer felt long and hot to you then you’re right. The graph shows the average summer high is the hottest it’s been for 5 years. Looking at the 1 year averages the cooling trend that started in 2014 has reversed and we’re warming again. As always the longer term 30 year averages still show a very clear and consistent warming trend. The warming acceleration that started in 2013 is continuing.
Still no update from the BOM on sea level measurements, we’re stuck at the end of 2014 with that.
Rainfall data shows no clear long term trend, we’re pretty much smack in the middle of the historical long term measurements.
