Variables included in the report:

Climate Zone Your climate zone provides broad characteristics of your historical climate.
Earthquake Risk If you have an earthquake risk it is important to be prepared in the context of your local climate information.
Tsunami Risk This risk, like earthquake risk, needs to be prepared for in the context of your local climate.
Cyclone Risk If you are located in a cyclone risk area then preparation for such an extreme event will require resilience and potentially evacuation planning.
Monthly Precipitation and Mean Temperature Your local climate is changing. Awareness of current conditions and how these may change to hotter and wetter or hotter and drier in the future can influence your decision making on the purchase of a home or the improvement of things like drainage and heating and cooling systems as part of a regular maintenance and replacement plan.
Relative Humidity Changes can influence comfort levels where humidity is increasing and could influence water demand on a property where it is decreasing.
Daily Extreme Precipitation Short duration rainfall may become more intense and the resulting risk of flooding of basements and damage to the physical structure may occur if changes are not made to gutter and drain sizes, for example.
Extreme Wind Speed Extreme winds can damage roofs, windows, and cladding. The design of house and its maintenance can reduce the risk of damage.
Aridity Index The availability of water on your property site can influence plant survivability, water supply with rainwater catchment systems and volume of water demand and hence water costs.
Heat Wave Days An increase in heat wave days will increase wear on cooling systems and personal comfort as well as increase the degradation of the house by stressing the building’s construction materials and things such as paint longevity.
Cooling Degree Days This relates closely to energy demand required for cooling a property and liveability.
Heating Degree Days These are likely to decrease in most areas and thus can lead to a reduction in seasonal heating costs.
Wildfire This extreme event -- like earthquakes and cyclones -- requires careful consideration of your exposure and response to reducing the risk to life and property.
Sea Level Rise The risk to some properties will increase over time and planning for adaptation needs to made well in advance of it impacting a property.
High Water Level at the Coast Extreme high-water events require a resilience plan for how your home and its contents are managed to reduce their exposure. Like earthquakes and cyclones careful planning needs to be done for possible evacuation with consideration of the weather.
Extreme Temperature Days Higher Than 35C Fixed text: Not all properties and dwellers could face this risk now, but it could become increasingly common in the future and resilience planning for reducing the impact to livability and the properties cooling system could need to be considered.
Extreme Temperature Days Lower Than 2C Even with climate change cold events could still occur for some properties. Preparation with adequate insulation and heating systems still need to be considered although the risks of cold events could diminish over time.
