Rainfall Readings. Redvale, New Zealand

Thank you for your interest, however, please note:
Due to a data collection failure, (and a failed "backup"), we lost all data from 18 April to 6 May 2014.
Accordingly, annual records for 2014 and Apr/May are not available
for comparison purposes.
We no longer update these records

"Page Down" for daily and monthly tables...

Question, (posed beginning of October): Does the previous 3 months indicate the next 3 months? Or, does the first month of spring inversely predict the rest of Spring?

We experienced a fairly wet September, so did this indicate a repeat of the Spring drought of 2010, (very dry October/November followed by very wet December/January)? Who knows, but it poses an interesting question. (December answer - "nope"!)

* Starting from 16 Aug 2009 and ending 4 June 2010 "L" was shown as a day total when light rain fell that was insufficient to tip the meter collector. With the installation of a more sensitive collector on June 4 2010, lowest rain resolution is now 0.3 mm

Data collection commenced 1 May 2005.

Figures in Bold Italics show appropriate period progress.

The rain gauge is situated at Redvale, Auckland, New Zealand
