April, normally Tamworth's driest month, has brought the city much-needed drenching, with 22mm falling of rain over the weekend.
April is normally Tamworth's driest month, with an average of just 24mm of rain.
But the Bureau of Meterology has already recorded 28.4mm in the city less than a week into April.
The BoM airport weather station recorded 6mm of rain on Friday, with Saturday adding a solid 21.2mm. Another millimeter of rain fell on Sunday.
Tamworth last year went through the entire month of April without a drop of rain. The city recorded 33 days straight with zero rainfall, including the entire month.
Meteorologists predict April will continue to be a relatively wet month.
Last month's BoM forecast that the region had a 60 per cent chance of above average rainfall for the month has already come true.
The Bureau predicts the region has an even chance of good rain over the next three months.
But little hope that Tamworth could set a new record for wettest April.
In the city's wettest ever year, 1905, 163.9mm of rain fell on Tamworth.
On Tamworth's wettest ever April day, April 7 1977, 76.2mm fell.
