Rain helps green gardens

IPSWICH green thumbs received a gift from the heavens late on Christmas Day, with solid rain figures recorded across the district.

A band of showers and storms that rolled through late afternoon delivered rain through the night and into early Boxing Day, with most parts of Ipswich recording about 25mm.

There was even better rain east of the city, with Springfield Lakes receiving 40mm.

While it was not the best news for those looking to celebrate with a Boxing Day lunch outdoors, the rain brought welcome relief from what has been a dry and hot start to summer.

Prior to Christmas, Amberley had only recorded 17mm of rain in a month where the average figure is 123mm.

The forecast was showing a chance of showers of storms and relatively mild maximum temperatures for the next three days.

Mostly fine weather has been forecast from Sunday.
