    Wet September for coastal areas
    Friday, 1 October 2004

    September rainfall totals on the coastal areas in the Hunter were the highest since September 1998. A large proportion of this rain in Newcastle and Port Stephens fell in a 24 hour period ending 9am Monday the 20th. This was due to the thunderstorm activity on Sunday the 19th. Williamtown recorded a total for the month of 90mm, Newcastle University 159.8mm, Nobbys Head 84mm, Nelson Bay 110mm and Norah Head 140mm. Majority of these values were 15mm or more above the long term averages.

    The Upper Hunter did not receive the falls for September like the coastal areas with Scone only receiving 15mm. Maitland and the surrounding districts recorded average to slightly below average rainfall for the month of September.
