Junee has welcomed the recent days of rain falling across the Riverina after months of drought and dust.
While not completely out of the woods, the rain has brought great relief to a number of farmers, residents and even wildlife as dams and tanks refill.
Wagga's Bureau of Meteorology technical officer Nigel Smedley said overall, the Junee Shire had seen 26.4 millimetres of rainfall between February 8 and February 11.
Starting out slowly, 1.2mm was recorded on February 8, followed by 3.8mm on the 9th, 12.6mm on the 10th, and 8.8mm on the 11th.
Historically, the average total rainfall for February over the past 10 years sits at 42.2mm, meaning 11 days into the month Junee has already surpassed the halfway mark.
However, the hit-and-miss nature of storms meant not everyone was lucky enough to see their property cop a soaking.
Martin Honner, who has a farm at Marinna, said his property saw slightly less than he'd hoped for, recording 16.5mm over recent days.
Mr Honner said he "must be in a shadow", and hoped more rain was on the way.
"We just don't want the sudden thunderstorms that cause damage," he said.
A Junee Reefs resident recorded 20mm in less than an hour during Monday's deluge.
Across the region, the rain brought relief to many fire-stricken towns.
At Tumut, which has been the centre of bushfire activity since December, 43.4mm was recorded. However neighbouring Tumbarumba, which has also been hit by fires, only received 10.4mm.
By 9am on Tuesday, Wagga had recorded a total of 13.2 millimetres since the rain began at the weekend, while Cootamundra saw a total of 29.2mm.
At Temora, the news was even better, with the Bureau of Meteorology recording 49.6mm over the same period.
Mr Smedley said possible light showers and storms were forecast, on and off, for the Riverina for the remainder of the week.
According to the bureau, the time between February 2017 and January 2020 was the driest on record for any 36-month period starting in February, when averaged over the Murray-Darling Basin and NSW.
