May at Manilla was warm and wet.

That was quite a contrast to April, which had been cool and dry. The sudden change is shown in the graphs here:
https://climatebysurly.com/2017/06/01/3-year-trends-to-may-2017/
I have done a little work on the date of first frost, with a little speculation on whether it is changing and by how much.

I have now posted my autumn report for Manilla, NSW. It is remarkable for having normal autumn temperatures. Both the summer and the autumn of last year had extremely high temperatures. This autumn was also very wet, unlike at some other places in NSW.
