Tem­per­a­tures slightly above av­er­age

Shepparton News - - NEWS - By De­clan Martin

It’s been a cool end to Oc­to­ber in Shep­par­ton but the month is on track to record slightly above the his­toric av­er­age tem­per­a­ture and be­low the av­er­age rain­fall.

Bu­reau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy se­nior fore­caster Chris God­fred said Shep­par­ton had re­ceived just over 23.6 mm of rain­fall this month com­pared to Oc­to­ber’s av­er­age of 31 mm, and had an av­er­age max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture of 23.7° C, slightly above the av­er­age of 22° C.

‘‘It might not feel like a warm month be­cause there haven’t been any ex­tremely hot days,’’ Mr God­fred said.

‘‘The cold­est day for the month had a top tem­per­a­ture of 17 de­grees while the hottest day was 30 de­grees.’’

Satur­day night’s storm brought 10.6 mm of rain­fall to Greater Shep­par­ton overnight and, apart from Mon­day, no more rain­fall events were ex­pected to hap­pen in the area for the rest of the week.

‘‘There might be some light pass­ing show­ers . . . but it won’t make a sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence to the rain­fall for the month as the area moves into a sta­ble weather pat­tern with light-to-mod­er­ate, south to south­west­erly winds,’’ Mr God­fred said.

‘‘We’re not ex­pect­ing hot weather for the rest of the week. How­ever, the tem­per­a­tures will climb a lit­tle, with max­i­mums of 22 de­grees ex­pected mid­week.’’
