Rain falling on Sunday night was not nearly enough to fill water tanks or dams, but it was an improvement on the rainfall experienced during the entire month of July – a whole lot of nothing.
The month-long dry spell was broken when a mere 1.4 millimetres of rain fell in parts of the Southern Shoalhaven on Sunday night, and into Monday morning.
However, according to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), there was still no rainfall recorded in Kioloa, which experienced its driest month in 58 years throughout July.
There is still no substantial rainfall expected in the near future, according to BOM forecasts.
The forecast for the next 7 days includes winds of up to 40 km/h on Wednesday, August 8, and Thursday with daytime temperatures expected to be between 19 and 21 degrees, before the mercury rises slightly in time for the weekend.
The temperature is expected to reach up to 23 degrees celsius on Friday, while Saturday could see a top of 25 degrees celsius.
There is a chance of a small amount of rain on Sunday afternoon, with the BOM forecasting just 1 millimetre.
