Gosford's impressive rainfall

Thomas Hough, Saturday August 31, 2019 - 12:31 EST

Along with numerous places along the NSW coast over the last two days, Gosford has received its most significant rain for a couple of months.

Over the last couple of days a low pressure trough has lingered over and just off the NSW coast, which, combined with moisture courtesy of the Tasman Sea, has led to some impressive rainfall.

Gosford received 114.4mm in the 24 hours to 9am on Friday morning, with a further 84mm over the following 24 hours. This makes it the heaviest two-day rainfall since early June 2016 when just shy of 215mm fell in 48 hours.

Impressively, this two-day rainfall also accounts for just over 20% of all the rainfall Gosford has received so far this year and is more rainfall than the previous four years worth of August rainfall combined.

Further showers are expected today with clear skies returning from tomorrow.
