Only 13mm here at Arnold/Mapperley plains so far. Last decent rain was overnight on 12th/13th March when I measured 6.1mm. Just 0.2mm overnight on 14th/15th. My long-term average rainfall for March is 45.4mm, so only 29% of average to 23rd. Needs to be very wet this week to come anywhere near the average!

Regards to all
