Good weather for ducks and geese

IT MIGHT have just been good weather for ducks – and geese – but the rain you got yesterday in your backyard is probably about as good as it gets for the next week.

There’s a good chance of some showers around the slopes and plains today and maybe tomorrow, but it’s not going to be much if it does fall at your place.

According to Moree weatherman Michael Glasson, yesterday’s rain – and the heavier falls that seemed to start overnight Tuesday around Tamworth – were welcome, but a pity they didn’t hold a bit more in those clouds.

Dubbo scored a big jackpot with 43mm, but around the North West and up on the tablelands it was considerably less. Coonabarabran had 16mm and Emmaville and Glen Innes 10mm each but it was single figures for the rest of us.

Tamworth saw just over 7mm  and there’s some hope for some

 isolated showers again tomorrow around the city.

Tamworth’s overnight minimum of 9.9 degrees Celsius 

yesterday was the warmest night we’ve had all month but it’s set to drop by at least five or so degrees from now. 

While the rain might be mostly gone, the cold fronts and some of those chilly overnights are back in the next few days. 

Tablelands centres can expect some minus figures, a chance of snow for the higher places south of Guyra, but it should only be a dusting if it falls at all. Frosts are expected to return, especially over the weekend.

Tamworth so far this year has had less than half of the rainfall total we’d had to the same period in 2013. We’ve had just under 210mm for the year.
