According to the BOM, the mean rainfall for the month of July at Observatory Hill near Sydney Harbour Bridge is 97.4mm. The decile 5 (median) rainfall is 75.0mm, and the mean number of days with at least 1mm of precipitation is 7.5
45.0mm since 9am today (21st – it’s now 6pm)
39.2mm between 9am on the 20th and 9am on the 21st
76.8mm between 9am on the 19th and 9am on the 20th
160.8mm in 55 hours. That’s already double the median monthly rainfall.
It’s meant to rain again tomorrow, although they’re only forecasting between 15-30mm. I’m over the sound of heavy falling rain.
Now I have to go and put my gumboots on to take the bins out. I’m wondering whether to put on a lifejacket too.
