Rainfall since 1999
Since 1999 when my father-in-law Ken gave me a rain gauge, I have pretty well kept a constant record of rain fall on the backyard. I shall endeavour to keep this page updated. The gauge was affixed to the NE corner of the bungalow, about 2.5m up. Now it is on the clothes line where I can reach it easily instead!
From the graph below, the rainiest years are seen as 2007, driest 2006 and 2005.
Can anyone else offer an explanation for the cycle cribbed from the mean moving average?
I can make out a cycle of roughly three years, and decreasing peak trends...
