ClimateEdit

Owing to a particularly strong upwind effect, Rosewood yields strikingly cool maxima for its altitude and latitude; its annual maximum lay at 19.1° C, comparable to that of Cooma on the leeward (eastern) side of the ranges, despite being over 300 m lower in altitude (457 m for Rosewood; 778 m for Cooma). Such disparity is especially pronounced during winter.
