The Grenfell Weather Station recorded a total of 28.6 mm and the average rainfall for the month since 1886 is 54.9 mm. However, the rain received during the month was very beneficial to crops and pastures, even though more would have been ideal. The month’s rain has brought the total so are this year to 498.9 mm, just under 20 inches.

The wettest October at Grenfell was in 1973 when 180.2 mm was recorded and our driest October was in 2006 when no rain was measured.

Our coldest morning to 9 am was experienced on October 2 when the temperature fell to 0.9 degrees and Grenfell’s hottest day was felt on 24th October when it reached a very warm 34.7 degrees. The last day in October was quite warm when the temperature rose to 34.5 degrees. Also October 25 was very warm when it reached 34.1 degrees.

Our lowest maximum was just 12 degrees on October 14. The average minimum to 9 am was 7.8 degrees this compares to the average minimum since 1965 of 9.2 degrees. The highest minimum since 1965 was on October 30, 1990 when 21.0 degrees was recorded. October’s coldest morning since 1965 was on October 2, 1965 with a reading of -1.1 degrees.

October’s average maximum this year was 25.6 degrees and since 1965 the average is 22.5 degrees. So you can see by these figures that the month was a bit hotter than the average. The hottest day for October since 1965 was recorded on October 29, 1967 when 35.6 degrees was recorded. The lowest maximum was recorded on October 3, 1966 when the temperature only rose to 9.4 degrees.

Farmers in the Weddin Shire are now starting to get very busy, haymaking, harvesting of their canola crops and then soon harvesting other grain crops. Most would like to see conditions remaining dry for the time being and with the SOI (Southern Oscillation Index) reading of -9.0 this week means less rain ahead, unless there is a sharp turnaround.

Once harvest is over, many farmers would like to see some heavy falls of rain to replenish stock dam supplies to carry them through the hot Summer months ahead.
