That's DRY. What prospects are there for any spring or summer rain?
I assume you'd normally get much more winter rain ... ya?

For Hobarts latitude, warm AND dry in winter surely is exceptionally unusual.

What is going on with the global weather right now, it's seriously unstable! (I know it's the solar min)

14mm of rain is crazy low, considering you should be getting 50mm for July alone. Hold onto your hats. Are bush fires a serious problem in Taz usually?
