Newcastle Weather Records

Newcastle's big wet continues. We've had 2.2mm of rain so far today and 30.6mm yesterday. So far we've had 303.0mm (11.9 inches) of rain this month and we're only halfway through.

The big rains on 8/9 June produced a massive 135.8mm (5.35 inches) in one 24 hour period, which is now, officially, the wettest June day on record. Newcastle's wettest June ever recorded was in 1951, with 324.5mm (12.78 inches). With 13 more days to go, it looks like the current weather conditions will be the wettest in recorded history.

Which isn't good for all the houses damaged. But good for the dams.
