Showers can’t put a dent in Oberon’s rainfall deficit

A BIT of rain over the weekend will have been welcomed by the Oberon district, but a lot more will be needed to make up for the deficit that has built up this year.

Oberon got a handful of millimetres of rain during showery weather through the Central Tablelands on Sunday, but is still more than 300 millimetres down on its long-term average rainfall to this time of year.

More showers are possible for Oberon on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday this week.

Oberon’s maximum temperatures are set to range from the mid-teens to the early 20s for the next week.
