Rainfall and inflow: a summary

At present, I am still waiting on data. However, if I combine the two stations at this point, I get a value of 861.8 millimetres of rainfall thus far this year. Based on extrapolation, this would indicate that we have received approximately 160,000 megalitres of inflow.

The rainfall would thus be enough to blow through my limit of 850 millimetres. However, I am not certain that I am willing to concede as yet, even though there are nine days to go for the year and a little more rain is predicted to fall just after Christmas. As the station that I am using showed around 100 millimetres less rainfall by November, it is possibly that it has received 12 millimetres less in December. But we will see. ;)

  1. Confirming that 861.8 is the correct figure.

    The station that I had been using closed on 3
    December 2010. So from now on I will be using station no. 070351.
