Records attest to very wet April

THE 13mm of rain that fell on Sunday night took the total amount of rainfall for April to 258mm.

This figure is 77mm above the April average.

Of the four months so far this year, Coffs Coast residents have endured above average rains for three of them.

In the first four months of the year Coffs Harbour has averaged 57.5 days of rain since records began in 1943.

So far this year there has been rain on 75 of the 121 days.

This has resulted in almost a foot of rain above the average.

Having had 284.1mm of rain above the yearly average to date, it means that Coffs Harbour could be bone dry throughout May and June and the statistics would still say that the town has had above average rainfall at the halfway point of the year.

With the forecast for more rain in the coming week that is unlikely to happen so the question of when the rain is going to end will continue to be asked.
