Title It Did Actually Rain In Australia On Monday But We Should Still Be Worried Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Pedestrian Group Media type Country/Territory Australia Date 13/11/19 Description Dr Paul Satur, a Water Resource Management expert with the Centre for Water Sensitive Cities at Monash University, reminds us that these kinds of seemingly odd occurrences are actually becoming the new norm, and that is cause for concern.
"We have just come away from the hottest summer ever on record. Then, for the first eight months of this year temperatures soared. The country’s mean temperature was the second warmest on record and the mean maximum temperatures were the warmest on record," said Dr Satur over email.
"To add to this, rainfall averages have been well below average for most of the country. Drought-effected parts of eastern and southern Australia, have experienced (to-date), rainfall levels in the lowest 10% of historical records. Our major cities anxiously look on as water storage levels continue to drop to lows not seen since the Millennium Drought and at rates not seen before on record."
