More data from the BOM. Rainfall doesn’t seem to have a long term trend like temperature and sea level. Although in the medium term it matches temperature and sea level with the El Niño – La Niña cycle.

Rainfall data is taken from the Observatory HIll station in Sydney and covers from Jan 1858 to December 2016
