More rain in our local gauges

Another 6.6mm of rain on Sunday and 27.2mm up to midnight on Monday has added to our already record rainfall for the month of October.

The Bureau of Meteorology reports Cobar’s total rainfall for the month of October was 210.8mm.

This rainfall record well and truly beats Cobar’s previous record of 130.5mm recorded in 1934 (which we reported last week).

Local landholders have also fared very well for the month with the Sinclairs receiving a total of 309.8mm at Berangabah in the south of the shire and Phil Harley at Balowra (Nymagee) had 274.2mm for the month.

The Bureau is predicting Cobar could be in for some more rain later this week with possible showers on Sunday and Monday.

Some cooler temperatures are also expected this week with 16 the maximum today, tomorrow should reach 19 and a top of 22 degrees is expected on Friday.

Saturday’s forecast is expected to be a top of 25 and the mercury is predicted to reach 27 on Sunday and 29 on Monday.
