June 4, 2014 3:40am

While the weather gurus are tipping an El Nino to develop during the next few months, there are plenty people out there, including many farmers, who have said we have had enough rain for the time being.

It is only four days into winter, but already the Kyabram weather station has recorded 35mm of rain, including 27mm registered to 9am Sunday morning.

The average for June is 39.7mm, so we are almost to this total as well.

The weekend’s rain takes Kyabram’s yearly rainfall to 239.4mm, which is up on the yearly average of 209.9mm and a lot more than had fallen at this time last year, when 117mm had been recorded.

And although there have been some chilly mornings of late, the lowest temperature for the year still belongsto Anzac Day morning when it dipped to 1.8°C. The warmest day was on January 16 when the mercury soared to an unpleasant 44.1°C.

Statistics from the Bureau of Meteorology show Kyabram has been drenched during the past month, with 69.8mm of rain recorded for May.

More wet weather is on the horizon, with the bureau predicting showers for today and Thursday with a max of 17°C.
