Another wet start to a summer month

However, had it come one day later, it would have been eight millimetres more than today’s 1951 record total of 13. 

The Wednesday dump also put this area on pace for a third consecutive month of above average precipitation. The unofficial total for the first seven days is 25.9 millimetres, which is 45 per cent of the August norm of 56.9, with more than 75 per cent of the month still ahead of us.
