Monsoonal Climates can be highly variable. This is particularly so when looking at the beginning of the season. In the lists for Weipa below, extracted from the BOM site the first figure is January and the second December because of where we start the new year so read them backwards you clever people. There is for instance a lot of difference between 859.6 mm and 40.9 mm, particularly if you are the 'wrong' side of a river when 200 mm falls overnight. Weipa is not a particularly wet place either!
