Dry becomes Wet - Overnight

Friday and Saturday were very nice summer’s days with long sunny periods and the temperature up into the mid to high twenties centigrade.

With just 14.2mm of rainfall this month by Saturday morning it was looking as though it would be much drier than the average 42.7mm we can expect to fall in July. All that changed overnight Saturday and into the early hours of Sunday morning. Checking my weather station on Sunday morning I couldn't believe my eyes as the rainfall total for Sunday already showed 28.6mm.

Added to Saturday evening’s rainfall it amounts to 34.0mm, the best part of a months rainfall in 9 hours. I don’t think the plot will need watering today.

The month’s total now stands at 48.2mm making it wetter than an average July.
