Wet­ter weather to come

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Co­bram’s res­i­dent weather-man Ron Ren­frew recorded a rain­fall to­tal of 67.5 mm for Co­bram at his home­based weather sta­tion lo­cated on the north side of Co­bram.

Mr Ren­frew said the wet­ter weather in Au­gust was above av­er­age — and the late win­ter rains were no doubt much ap­pre­ci­ated by farm­ers af­ter a fairly dry June.

‘‘Dur­ing the last nine years we had an Au­gust rain­fall av­er­age of 55.2 mm,’’ he said.

‘‘And what can we look for­ward to?

‘‘I think we will get big rains in late Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber.’’

With that con­fi­dent pre­dic­tion, we can all keep a weather eye out to see if our lo­cal rain man is cor­rect.
