According to my records, rainfall so far this year has just passed the 400mm mark. Compared to previous years, we have had more rain so far this year than for all of 2006, and are on par for 2005, 100mm ahead of 2004, and 50mm ahead of 2003 for the same period.
(The little blue line at the end of 2006 was the 70mm dropped in the New Years Eve hailstorm over Tuggeranong)
It is worthwhile noting though that rainfall this year has been boosted by the very late arrival of the spring rains in 2006, which didn’t arrive until January and persisted until July. The spring rains were also late this year, but nowhere near as much as last.
