Parched Bundaberg records less November rain

By Frances Adcock, Monday December 2, 2013 - 10:44 EDT

Bundaberg has recorded just half its monthly rainfall average for November.

The weather bureau says just 48 millimetres of rain fell compared to an average of 86mm.

Senior forecaster Jonte Hall says most of the rain fell at the end of the month.

"For that last week period again it was inland that found the best falls, Childers in particular picked up around 70mm, so more than most places saw for the whole month," he said.
