2014 off to a wet start, at least in Greyton

6 January 2014

IMG_0901It’s only the 6th day of 2014 and already this January month is the wettest in 30 years!  Greyton, about 100 km east of Cape Town, had by 17:00 today logged 115 mm since the rain started falling yesterday afternoon!  January typically averages around 23-25 mm, the last big total (Somerset West) being 107 mm in 2002 and nothing more than 50 mm in the other 28 years!

Still a couple more days of rain to come so January may yet breach the 200 mm mark.  Not that anyone is moaning, mind you, after many consecutive days of 35 deg C cookers!
