Looks showery in Tassie - hope it gives a half decent drink to the dry areas.

Swansea has had 50mm total since the last week of May, so 5 months. Probably not many places in Australia with rain gauge would have been drier than that in the same time frame ..

Indeed Yep - spot on. Sadly Swansea Bicheno etc often so very dry as we know. Being on the leeward side of the island does not induce regular precip. frown

They BADLY need an east coast low type of event.

Most people on the mainland would NEVER believe your info yet it happens so many years.

We have done better than Swansea but not heaps more. We have had 84mm since June 1st till today, however, 21mm was last week so up till last week we had 62mm. Of that 62mm, 39mm fell over a couple of days in August.

Definitely better than Swansea but still not great either.

MANY inland areas of NSW are worse than us as well.

It has been a terrible time for rain over this year for a lot of places.

Here's hoping it is turning around now, I think it is. Shame you can't transport the East Coast to the west for a wet holiday frown

As I type of course, a rain band is wandering across the State of NSW that should hopefully give us 20mm or so.

Wish I could shove some down to the SE and E of Tassie.

A tick over 8mm yesterday, very close to 600mm YTD. Travelled to Hobart and back, dry in places, but greener than I thought in parts of the southern Midlands. Hobart surrounds looked a bit dry though.

Topped out at 27.2 on Wed. Amazing how much some of the fruit trees etc came on with the extra warmth.
