BATHURST is closer to its long-term average rainfall figure for the month of January, but is likely to still fall short.
As of Monday afternoon, 67.8 millimetres of rain had been recorded throughout the month, which is around 10mm less than the long-term average.
The total was given a boost over the weekend after 15mm was recorded between Friday and 9am Monday morning.
While Bathurst is much closer to its long-term average, the region has received significantly less rainfall than it did over the same period in January, 2019.
To January 27 last year, Bathurst had recorded a whopping 106.1mm with nine rainy days.
Weatherzone's forecast suggests Bathurst will miss its average this month, with a near-zero per cent chance of rain through to January 31.
In some good news, February could have a wet start, with a 90 per cent chance of rain predicted for Sunday, which could produce between five to 10mm.
