The rainfall influences came from the south west corner of the state where significant rain fell in the channel country and produced a month of flooding further west. Minimum temperatures (13.4-22.0 oC) averaged 17.8, maximum temperatures (25.2-33.2) averaged 29.6 o; a minimum 0.1o above the average, a maximum 2.3 o lower than average. Rain was 109 mm (16 d). The second half of December has been under the influence of a rain depression (997 mbar) situated 300 km off Fraser Island. The end of the month has been typified by wind gusts of 40-60 km/hr which assisted humidity reduction and played havoc with spray programs.
