The attached image provides a comparison of the weather in 2013 at Werribee and Cranbourne (Dane).

In summary, and hardly surprising, it was significantly wetter in the east and warmer in the west.

The detailed 2013 Weather Review for Werribee is at http://bit.ly/1iyraJ0.

Don't knock the weather. If it didn't change once in a while, nine out of ten people couldn't start a conversation. - Kin Hubbard

Thanks for the summary mate, as you state nothing really out of the ordinary here. Western suburbs are generally warmer & drier.
I'm over in Wyndham Vale & often use your weather station page as a reference & also the Wyndham Vale private site http://weather.gkt.net.au/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. Do you know the bloke who runs that by any chance?

Cheers

G'day neighbour. I don't know the guy that runs the Wyndham Vale PWS.

Cheers mate & thanks for all your efforts with providing our locality with a Weather Station.
Not sure if you agree here, but I've questioned for quite some time why BOM never re-instated an official weather station out this way. (Werribee/Wyndham Vale) area.
I know we have Avalon & Laverton in between, but I find quite often they don't reflect our weather conditions here accurately. What's your thoughts on this?

G'day mate, sorry for the tardy reply as I've been away enjoying my holidays.

I work for the BoM and whilst I agree that the AWS at Laverton and Avalon do not always accurately reflect the conditions in Wyndham, I can't see the BoM installing another AWS out this way.
