Mallee records drier September

Tuesday October 2, 2012 - 10:31 EST

Rainfall records for September have confirmed lower than average falls for Victoria's Mallee.

The latest figures from the weather bureau show Mildura received 13 millimetres of rain last month, which was well below the normal tally of 26.

Ouyen and Walpeup each recorded 10mm in September, just 30 per cent of their average rainfall.

Tallies were better in the Wimmera.

Horsham received close to its normal amount, with 31mm, while Nhill had the full amount of its average rain.

Kerang's tally of 33mm was a fraction short of normal.

Grain growers across northern Victoria say they are in need of further falls in the coming days to boost their flagging crops.

However, the bureau is forecasting drier and warmer than average conditions between now and Christmas.
