0.7mm yesterday and another 0.4mm brings the YTD rainfall to 68.3mm. Sharp contrast to April last year which was easily the highest April total in the 7 years I have been living at this location.
I heard someone yesterday say that there's nothing much on the cards rainfallwise during April & May.
Last winter was drier that both autumn & spring from memory which isn't good.
If we keep tracking the way we are, then finally the various weather agencies and the media might finally acknowledge the lack of rainfall in the many areas away from the Tropics and Eastern seaboard.
you've done quite well. I did see a 13mm around the Meadows area when I had a look at the radar last night.Nice little bit of precipitation over night and still continuing.
I can see rain in my gauge but I have yet to venture out to check how much!
Ok, I checked - 5mm
Another 1.4mm from an early morning shower freshened the garden. Would be nice to not have had the decimal point, but anything is better than nothing at this stage while we wait for the season opening rains.
Talk about location, location, location....!!Copped 13mm in the Exeter gauge today. Short sharp shower apparently.
Thanks Parklife for your rainfall summary. It's interesting to see data from various sites.I haven't checked in for a while, March my total was 22mm compared to the average closest BoM station of 27.6mm.
Jan 28.5, Feb 32.7 for a total including March of 88.8 compared to BoM station average of 68.2mm.
So far in April a couple of handy showers with the total sitting on 22.5mm but forecast wise that looks about it. BoM station average for April is 44.7mm.
Last year 2020 Jan 73mm, Feb 13.5, March 3 and April a whopping 122mm.
