Nicely done Steve, looking at things from a 'glass half full' perspective. Pardon the pun laugh

August rain prevented six-month totals from approaching the record of 43 mm set in 1888.

I have drafted a graph like the one above (August 2018) projected for September using dummy rainfall totals.
Remarkably, the September total (8.8 mm up to the 11th) will have to exceed 17 mm to avoid breaking a record for rainfall deficiency.
The record, which has stood since 1912, is the 15-month total of 404 mm. That is a rate of only 27 mm per month: just half of the average monthly rate.
