Rainy send-off for July

DODGING rain drops and jumping mud puddles was the order of the day for most Rose City residents on Saturday.

What seemed like constant showers for most of the day on the Southern Downs didn't amount to much on the charts however, with Warwick officially recording only 4mm.

Bureau of Meteorology Senior Forecaster Michelle Berry said the rain was light but persistent across the region on Saturday. Most of the rain tumbled down along the border, with Wallangarra and Glen Lyon Dam reaching 17mm and Stanthorpe and Applethorpe 7mm.

For the last month of the chilly season Warwick will be hit with colder temperatures as south-westerly winds blow through, bringing frosts through the week.

Applethorpe broke a record in July, reaching 13.6 degrees as the highest minimum on record on Saturday.

The expected temperature for tomorrow is 16 degrees and Wednesday 18 degrees.
