Brief 2007 Summary of Significant Weather Events
Mar - Large hail reported from several areas between Maitland & the coast from 1700 to 1800. Largest I've heard reported
was from Berry Park at 6.5cm.
Apr - Very light winds were observed thru the last two thirds of the month.
Jun - The month of the ECL, need I say more! Massive rainfall totals were observed thru coastal areas in particular with
the Barrington Tops also receiving several decent snowfalls.
The majority of the last half of the year has seen a return to more normal conditions with the introduction of La Nina.
Rainfalls have been regular & plentiful with maximum temperatures being down on previous years. Humidty levels over
the last three months have been well above normal which is a nice change, albeit a little more uncomfortable!
