    Fixed the table to show the rainfall and the total of 1262.4mm of rain highlighted! That is incredible that is about 1.5 times what we get in a year here in western Sydney!

    It this the first time ever that more than 150 mm has fallen on each of 6 consecutive days. A place near Mackay has 8 such days out of 9 in 1990-91 but not 6 in a row.
