OC­TO­BER has been a wet month for Stan­thorpe, with rain­fall more than dou­ble the month av­er­age.

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS YOUR SAY -

I GOT 200mm for the month, my best Oc­to­ber ever, yet now I am hav­ing to wa­ter gar­dens again due to the heat.

DON’T scare it away ssh­hhh.

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.
