Rainy day to say goodbye to 2009

THE LAST day of the year will be seen off by a mini flurry of showers on the Fraser Coast today, but not to the same extent that the rain fell during the Christmas period.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Brett Harrison is predicting “a shower or two” during the day. In the morning the showers will focus on the coast before drifting inland during the afternoon and evening.

New Year’s Day will bring more of the same before some storm activity surges our way over the weekend.

Storms will brew up in the region’s west on Saturday before they move towards the coast on Sunday, bringing some decent showers.

Hervey Bay has not been short of a shower or two this month with a grand total of 172mm recorded by yesterday afternoon.

This compared with a total of 38mm in December 2008.

The rains have not been as kind to Maryborough with 76mm coming down during the month, compared with 66mm in December 2008.

While Maryborough had a total of 22mm on Sunday and Monday this week, Hervey Bay followed that will a splash of 33mm on Tuesday.
