For stats lovers:

Sydney's August was the coldest since 1943 (average temp 12.7c)

The average minimum of 8.1c was the coldest since 1951.

The average maximum of 17.3c was the lowest since 1978.

69 consecutive nights fell below 11c, the most in almost 150 years.

Perth's August was the driest since 1978 with around 28mm(avg 135mm). The average min was 5.6C(avg 8.1C), and max was 19.8C(avg 18.7C). The overall average was 13C(avg 13.5C) for August.

The overall average minimum for winter was 6.9C(avg 8.2C). The overall average maximum was 19.1C (avg 18.8C).

The overall winter rainfall was 349.2mm (avg 422.7mm)

The lowest temp was 0.7C, and the coldest day was 14.1C.

We only had 17 nights above 10C and only 1 in August.

It was a winter that was harsher than last year in which we didn't drop below 3.1C. I didn't quite expect this winter being so wet at first nor August being so dry. If August had normal rainfall the minimums would definitely have been higher. It was a winter that traded night warmth for only a slight increase in daytime temps. Some things have suffered, but other things have thrived. Now spring is here the forecast is definitely warmer and wetter. :)

It looks like this winter in Australia was not an example of global warming.

Statistically the southern hemiphere hasn't warmed up anymore than where it was in 2001. I don't know what that means, but I doubt that you can totally separate the northern and southern hemipsheres when talking about the overall impact of global warming. Maybe the north and south has an oscillation much like the El Nino, La Nina effect.

I think we may be going for a hot wet summer. The last driest August for us was in 1978, the last time we were hit by a cyclone. Statistically we're meant to get a cyclone every 7 years. They're never large, normally cat 1 or 2 and never a direct hit. Ocean temps are still warm for this time of year.

August finshed 3 inches below normal with rainfall. September has also started dry. It looks like the rainy season ended early this year.
