Rain Rain come and stay...

It's a nice, cool and wet day here in Newcastle. We had a marvellous thunderstorm last night around midnight and it managed to bucket down 10.4mm (0.41 inches) as we slept. There's a slow moving low pressure system in western NSW that is dumping rain on drought affected farms. Griffith, where I worked last year, received 6.6 mm (0.26 inches) and it has desperately needed it. It has even rained in Ivanhoe, 1.4mm (0.05 inches), which is pretty good for a town that is essentially in the desert.

And the Southern Oscillation Index continues to indicate a strong La Nina.
