Rain almost breaks December record

December 3 2017

Rain over Friday and Saturday has pushed the December rain total just 5.6mm away from the December 2008 record of 68.8mm.

28.2mm of rain fell on Friday and that was followed by 34.4mm on Saturday with most of Saturday’s rain falling in the early hours.

The Edward River has risen 9cm since last Wednesday, while the river is expected to rise some it will not reach minimum flood levels which is 4.60m.

There is still a 150.6mm difference in rain totals from last year, 2016 also had 28 more days of rain at this point of time and the area was dealing with flooding last year compared to none this year.

When not comparing this year to last year, the difference between the average rainfall until December and the current total is 36.4mm.
