What’s more viewers can compare data dating back some 15 years.

With Australia having just experienced the third hottest year on record (2017) we thought you might like to look at how we have shaped up over recent months.

November and December had temperatures varying from 14.1C to 41.7C which was 2 degrees above the norm. The big variant was the rainfall which was down 39.1 mm from the November / December average and a massive 307mm for the year.

For January, the temperature is up 0.9 degrees on the norm and the rainfall down 81.8mm even before the end of the month.

Reading between the lines, this does not look good for the bushfire season

with so much tinder dry scrub. Strong winds as we have seen lately will make runaway fires hard to stop.

Why not check it all out for yourself. Punch in: ‘’ and it’s all there for you to see. The service is free and is linked to the BoM data.
