Rain to clear this week

THE torrential rain which fell on Christmas morning has passed and the outlook is getting brighter as we head closer to the New Year.

The coast’s top rainfall recording for Christmas Day was at Crystal Creek at Gleniffer where 91mm was measured.

At Mountain Top near Dorrigo 73mm was recorded while at the Coffs Harbour Meteorological Office near the airport 41mm was measured in the gauge.

The rain event which began last Thursday had delivered 77mm to Coffs Harbour by 3pm yesterday.

Over the four days 89mm had been recorded at Mountain Top, 111mm at Crystal Creek and 110mm at Crossmaglen.

The outlook is looking a lot more holiday friendly with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting showers to become scattered as the week progresses, although there is still the chance of isolated thunderstorms.
