“Sunny return from “flooding rains””
Most of the April 2011 raw data values (in orange), other than daily maximum temperature, are now on the “droughts” side of normal rather than the “flooding rains” side, which had dominated for about a year.
Smoothed October values include new 12-year record anomalies for daily maximum temperature (low) and cloudy days (high).
Note: Fully smoothed data – Gaussian smoothing with half-width 6 months – are plotted in red, partly smoothed data uncoloured, and raw data for the last data point in orange. January data points are marked by squares. Blue diamonds and the dashed blue rectangle show the extreme values in the fully smoothed data record since September 1999.
