Sydney has just shivered through its coolest June day in 21 years although the worst of the cold spell is probably over for now.

High precipitation quantiles tend to rise with air temperature, following the so-called Clausius–Clapeyron scaling. This CC-scaling relation breaks down, or even reverts, for very high temperatures. In our study, we verify this reversal using a 60-year period of summer data in Germany. One of the suggested meteorological explanations is limited moisture supply, but our findings indicate that this behavior could also originate from simple undersampling.

More than 25% excess rainfall over normal on Wednesday has pulled down the overall deficiency in the quantum of monsoon rainfall to only 18% from 25% reported a week ago.
