Warm days for Melbourne in November 2014

Average daytime temperatures were very much warmer than normal at most locations in greater Melbourne, generally by one or two degrees, although in the southeast daytime temperatures were closer to normal. Overall, average night-time temperatures for most of the Melbourne area were typical for this time of year. As is usual for November, temperatures were highly variable with some days in the mid-30s but several in the teens.

Monthly rainfall totals were close to normal at every station. The wettest day was the 16th when most stations recorded between 30 and 40 mm. For many stations this was about half their average November rainfall total in one day. For Melbourne Regional Office, it was the wettest day since 1 June 2013 when 48.6 mm was observed.

  • Warm daytimes except in the southeast
  • Nigh-time temperatures close to normal in most parts
  • Typical November rainfall totals
  • A wet day on the 16th.

Notes

A Monthly Climate Summary is prepared to list the main features of the weather in Melbourne using the most timely and accurate information available on the date of publication; it will generally not be updated. Later information, including data that has had greater opportunity for quality control, will be presented in the Monthly Weather Review, usually published in the fourth week of the month.

A Climate Summary is generally published on the first working day of each month.

This statement has been prepared based on information available at 10 am on Monday 1 December 2014. Some checks have been made on the data, but it is possible that results will change as new information becomes available.

Averages for individual sites are long-term means based on observations from all available years of record, which vary widely from site to site. They are not shown for sites with less than 10 years of record, as they cannot then be calculated reliably.
The median is sometimes more representative than the mean of long-term average rain.

The Rank indicates how rainfall this time compares with the climate record for the site, based on the decile ranking (very low rainfall is in decile 1, low in decile 2 or 3, average in decile 4 to 7, high in decile 8 or 9 and very high is in decile 10).
The Fraction of average shows how much rain has fallen this time as a percentage of the long-term mean.

The ACORN-SAT dataset is used for temperature area averages.
