Canberra’s rainiest November on record


With 147.8 mm (5.8 inches) of rain so far this month, Australian capital Canberra has set its new all-time November rainfall record. This is 2.5 times more than the city's average November rain, and significantly higher than the previous record for the month of November set in 2010 at 119.4 mm (4.7 inches).

The capital recorded between 30 and 50 mm (1.18 – 1.96 inches) of rain on November 25, leading to overloading of stormwater systems and overland flooding.

The ACT State Emergency Service has received more than 100 requests for assistance since 09:00 LT on November 25.

Australia is on track for its wettest spring in a decade and some regions in NSW have already received more than three times their average rainfall for November.
