THE Bathurst region has again woken to the sight of rain falling on roofs and gardens following more welcome falls last week.
In one day last Friday, Bathurst received nearly twice the amount of rain recorded for the whole month of July.
Figures from Weatherzone report that 7.2 millimetres of rain was recorded at Bathurst Agricultural Station on August 4.
That has been followed by another six millimetres in the gauge this morning after steady rain began falling about 3am.
Across July, Bathurst received just 4.8mm of rain, around 10 per cent of the long-term average figure.
The long-term average rainfall for Bathurst in August is 50.0mm. There was 13.4mm recorded for the mont by 8am today.
Last month, Weatherzone said the Central Tablelands was likely to receive below average rainfall in August, but be much closer to the long-term average figure in September.
Meanwhile, snow remains a chance for high country around the Bathurst region tomorrow with falls expected above 1000 metres.
