So much for "The Big La Nina Wet" in central Q.

DEc 21...........36mm
Jan 22...........61 mm
Feb 22..........60 mm
Mar 22..........98 mm
Apr 22..........0 mm

Total......255mm over4 months.

Only 2 days into April so far so there's a chance that the heavens may open and we get 10 - 15 mm.
Regards

I think the last really good La Nina Wet for the NT was 2010/11?
