You may have seen the Melbourne bushfires on TV and part of the reason for these fires is the drought we are having here in Melbourne.
So far this year we have had 2.2mm (0.08inches) of rain as of 13th of Febuary.
How much rain have you had in your town so far this year? and can you send some of it here..

about 6 inches, which is below average by about 4 inches.

4 of those 6 fell in two days in early January...so it has been pretty dry here.

Sydney 103mm YTD and 78mm MTD. January was very dry with just a quarter of the average but February has been wet with rain/showers falling daily since Monday and the sun hasn't shone for 6 days, today looks to be the 7th.

For the PNW, I hope this drier than normal winter translates into a stormier than normal summer.

Please no Californian weather please!
