It was pretty wet and last month was also the warmest October on record in terms of mean temperature .
This from the South East Fire Centre weather office.
The mean temperature was 10.4C , which passes the previous record of 9.9C set in October 1979.
The amount of rainfall played a large role in that. We had over 80% more rain than a normal October at over 90 millimeters.
Almost half our rain last month came on one day – over 40 millimeters – mainly on the night of the 22nd.
