that has to be a record?

In that case, maybe we could discuss the rainfall record-breaking situation we're in, and the awe of it all?

/sarcasm off.

29.3 mm to 9.35 pm.


Rainfall - highest annual
Rank Rainfall (mm) Year Place name Station no. Latitude Longitude
1 1852.6 1917 Aldgate 23768 −35.02 138.75

3 1839.5 1917 Stirling 23745 −35.03 138.72

im not sure how to find year to date rainfall

Does it really matter whether it's an officially-broken record or not. Maybe for comparing official with non-official, but really? I'd be more concerned if there was missing data in official rainfall records smile .

This is always the biggest concern of any home station for me. Being an automated raingauge I assume? Chances are it could be a fair way off the mark.

yer could be close to trees or a roof where logically likely to get more spray etc into gauge than what it should....
There's a reason why there are official recordings.....

or it could just read more than actual.

ie, you put in 10mm and it records 12mm.

The reason I raised records (broken or otherwise) is because they are interesting! It's conversation material smile ! I was attempting to start conversation about records and their impacts (on the ground). I'll leave it at that!

I'm not really sure that's the best way of starting a conversation about it.... perhaps leave sarcasm (as per your earlier post) and what appears to be some sort of gripe? out of it and lets talk about records then....

It wasn’t ill-intentioned, but anyhow, in the past smile .

Sitting on 1099.2 mm for the year as of 9 pm CDT tonight. Local Woodside record is 1292 mm annually (if you ignore the missing years).

My rain gauge is anything but perfect but it does measure the bit of ground it is above.
