The Bureau of Meteorology confirmed on Monday that Wagga has experienced its wettest July on record since 2016.
Wagga received 92.6 millimetres of rain for the whole of July in 2016, with 2021's monthly July rainfall currently measuring at 71.2 millimetres.
A meteorologist from the BOM said there's a low possibility that Wagga will see more rainfall for July than 2016, with 4 to 6 millimetres predicted for Wednesday.
"Bearing in mind we have a couple of more fronts to come before the end of the month, but for the moment it is the most rainfall for July since 2016," the meteorologist said.
"Still 20 millimetres off, so it probably wont go over  but there is a chance."
While not one to wish the rain away, dairy farmer Simone Jolliffe said the wet July has resulted in many long challenging days for her and her workers.
"It makes it difficult trafficking cattle through mud and it is harder on staff, as we need to ensure the cows are washed and clean, so the quality of milk we produce is of a high-calibre," she said.
"In terms of crops, it's been cold and growth has been slow, so we are just waiting for that warmer weather to come and the crops to take advantage of the soil moisture profile.
"Farmers would very rarely say that it is too much rain, we just think about it drying out and hopefully having a good harvest come spring."

Early morning starts followed by long grueling days are currently what Ms Jolliffe and her workers face.
Knock off time often isn't coming until well after dark.
"For us as dairy farmers, it is probably adding on an extra three hours to what already is a long day," she said.
"We are getting in quite a bit later for meals, whether that's breakfast or dinner at night and so it is just making it very long days, which is tiring."
But she hoped to see more rainfall before harvest.
"As the weather warms up and the crops start to grow, it will still be important we get rainfall," she said
