Temperatures slightly above average
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.’’
