Welcome relief with rain on the way for Bundy

THE only places that haven't been dry around the Bundaberg region this month are the pubs.

Rainfall for the month of June to date is well below average.

The first three-and-a-half weeks of the month saw less than one millimetre of rain fall around the region.

The average for the first month of winter is 55mm.

A reprieve, however, could be in the wind come Wednesday. come Wednesday.

Weatherzone meteorologist Graeme Brittain said by mid-week, conditions could become unsettled as a low pressure trough moves in from the south east.

Mr Brittain said the developing weather system would start to move in on Tuesday and the heaviest rainfall would hit the region by Wednesday.

"There will be showers on Tuesday and more persistent rain, about 10mm, on Wednesday,” he said.

"And then more showers on Thursday.”

Over the three-day weather event the region could see anywhere between 5-10mm of rain - hardly drought-busting, but it's a start.

"It's well below the average of 55mm,” Mr Brittain said.

"This rainfall will help bridge the gap with the average.”
