The table below summarises Autumn (1 March to 31 May) recorded at my station. The records from 2000 to 2002 have lower temperatures then records from 2003 and later as the sensor I was using at the time read low so these temperature records are not comparable with the later records. Rainfall and wind data however, should be comparable.
