A very useful perennial for North-West pastoral areas
In our drier North-West pastoral areas rains are normally confined to the summer J. months. Dependent upon cyclonic influences, they are very uncertain, and a region said to enjoy an average of 10in. rain per year, might have as little as 1in or as much as 30in. in any one season. Whether the recordings are high or low they are nearly always confined to those few summer months, and a long dry period generally extend without break from May to December.
