Junee has seen a sudden break to the dry season with half the monthly median falling in just two days.
In the 24 hours to 9am on Melbourne Cup Tuesday, Junee received 4.6 millimetres across its four rainfall catchments.
Neighbouring Wagga saw twice the falls with eight millimetres measured.
Owing to the overnight storm activity, the Old Junee (Mill Bank) site registered 11.8 millimetres in the 24 hours to 9am on Wednesday.
Conversely, Temora measured only three millimetres in the same time period.
In non-drought affected years, the town usually sees upwards of 39.6 millimetres in November. Last year, the total for November was 54.8 millimetres.
The last month of spring is typically dryer than October, as the countdown to summer begins.
Though once in 1924, the town received a dump of 55 millimetres in one day.
With this week’s falls included, it brings the cumulative yearly total to 109.8 millimetres. A great reduction to last year’s combined 461.4 millimetres by the end of December.
Wednesday is likely to receive the last of the falls this week.
