Spent time a few months ago in Goulburn, probably the ‘poster child’ city for the extremeness of the Aussie drought, and the effect on what was prime farmlands…
I watch the 'Captains Flat" radar on a daily basis, plus the Sydney and Canberra papers have been mentioning that Goulburn has had a bit of rain. Quite a bit, one dam from empty to overflowing, one larger one, from lt 5% to about 25%, and all this because of 3 or 4 days worth of rain!
Seems there’s a significant low forming over SE Aussie, influenced by an Antarctic trough causing all this. One BOM scientist was saying el nino has now been replaced by la Nina, and the southern Oscillation is now peaking. Maybe the drought is over.
My sister in a CBR suburb has had about 50mm - roughly 2 inches in a day.
Me, I’m as dry as a bone in 118F 8%rh in the Sonoran Desert.
Are there any PWS’s in the Goulburn area? I searched google, but didn’t seem to find any
