OCTOBER has been a wet month for Stanthorpe, with rainfall more than double the month average.
I GOT 200mm for the month, my best October ever, yet now I am having to water gardens again due to the heat.

ENJOY it while we have it. I have done my long term forecast and only see a few days between now and the end of December with any significant rainfall. Then an El Nino has a 70% chance of forming. I think that will kill any chance of decent rain. If the climate keeps going the way it is then this drought is likely to last 20 or 30 years at least with only minor relief every now and again. I don’t think it is a case of “it will be over one day”. I think it is going to become the norm.
