June is typically the wettest month on average in the Riverina, and this year looks to be no different.
Wagga is well on its way to seeing its cumulative June average of 50.5 millimetres rainfall, after receiving 15.4 millimetres over the past two days.
On Friday, Wagga and Albury topped the region’s precipitation leaderboard, with 10.2 millimetres, and 13.4 millimetres. Deniliquin was the third highest receiving 7.8 millimetres throughout the day.
The rest of the Riverina averaged between one and three milimetres for Friday.
A weather warning for Friday was later downgraded. The cold front was expected to bring damaging winds of between 90 and 120 kilometres per hour to the region’s alpine areas.
Saturday saw much less rain around the region. Narrandera received the region’s highest with 7.6 millimetres, edging out Griffith on 7.4 millimetres.
On Saturday, Wagga received only 5.2 millimetres all day.
Sunny skies are set to return until Tuesday when it is expected Wagga will see between two and six millimetres, most likely heavier in the morning and easing throughout the day.
The rain is expected to stick around for the remainder of next week.
