Only the tropics are cold?

As pointed out by Philip's comments on the previous post, the BOMmade it clear in their press release that only the tropics of Australia last month were terribly cold.

But as shown by this graph, the whole of Australia were below the average (with the exception of a very small part of western Australia).

But of course, why report that the whole of Australia is cold? Lets report that global warming still exists, but only in the south (where the drought is!)

But just today they have released their new press release: Cold June follows Warm May, making careful announcements about how warm May was and how hot eastern Australia got during Autumn. But hang on a sec, wasn't this a press release about June? Yes, surprisingly it is. But why not bring up how hot the last few months are anyway.
