    Back in South Australia Ken : I just checked Hahndorf also here in the Adelaide Hills. Google earth :https://earth.google.com/web/@-35.02450001,138.8115,329.05158448a,107.85032983d,35y,0h,0t,0r

    Here is the BOM’s link to the pdf :http://www.bom.gov.au/clim_data/cdio/metadata/pdf/siteinfo/IDCJMD0040.023720.SiteInfo.pdf

    It’s all treed in ! Not a temperature site. But the BOM is still recording the rainfall there..

    You are right Bill, a dreadful site for recording rainfall. I’m only checking sites that record temperature in this series, even though temperature is directly related to rainfall.
