There was one short spell of rather cold days in mid-July this year, and another at the very end of August.
Otherwise, this winter was very like the winter before. In mid-June and late August there were humid spells with heavy rain and very warm nights. By contrast, early August had cold nights with very low humidity and no rain. In both years, July had very light falls of rain.
The number of frosts in each season (38; 42) was near normal (44), but in this winter the coldest night (minus 2.1°) was the warmest so far this century.
Like last winter, the average night temperature and the cloudiness were a little high, and the dew point very low. Average day temperature was half a degree low, making the daily temperature range narrow.
The winter rainfall, 133 mm, was just above the average (125 mm) and in the 62nd percentile.
Temperature, including subsoil at 750 mm, and other data are from 3 Monash Street, Manilla.

The coldest night was the warmest this century!
That’s right, Alison: the warmest coldest. No other coldest night was as warm as this one
