More rain expected for Coffs Coast
WITH cloud cast over the Coffs Coast again yesterday, another day of rain added weight to the theory we’re in the middle of a La Nina year.
In the 24 hours to lunchtime yesterday another 40mm had fallen over the city and there had been falls of up to 60mm in the Bellinger Valley and at Dorrigo
The Bureau of Meteorology said more rain will follow with a few showers forecast for today and tomorrow.
The weather bureau’s Coffs Harbour-based observer, Ashleigh Wilson, said it was all due to a strong to moderate La Nina event.
“This should bring cooler and wetter conditions to the MNC over the next three months,” she said.
“The outlook for total rainfall over the December quarter (October to December), is a 75 per cent chance of exceeding 300-400mm for the three-month period.”
