A deluge of rain around the region


There was a deluge of rain across Eastern Australia last week with many parts of the Cobar Shire also getting a dumping from the heavy rain band that passed through.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, in town we had 64.8mm since 9am last Wednesday with more than half of that recorded on the weekend with 21.8mm falling up until 9am Saturday and a further 16.6mm by 9am Sunday.

Heavy rain was also recorded around the Cobar Shire.

Bill Rogers reported 77mm fell over five days last week at Broadmeadows west of Cobar and Cains at Booroondarra in the north west had similar with 76mm for the week.

Gary Wells, further west, had 70mm at Windara; George Greer reports they had 96mm at Louth; and at Etiwanda in the south east of the shire, the Moselys recorded 66mm for the week in their rain gauge.

In the south west of the shire, Bob Sinclair received another 72mm last week which brings his total for the year at Berangabah  to a whopping 565mm!

More rain is expected this week with the Bureau predicting late showers today, more tomorrow and morning rain on Friday.

Today we can expect a top of 25 degrees with a very warm 29 degrees the expected maximum temperature for tomorrow.

It will drop back to 21 on Friday with the weekend expected to be partly cloudy and 23 on Saturday while Sunday should be slightly warmer with a top of 23.
