Highest rainfall in five years
Rainfall last month totalled 274.2mm, the highest February rainfall in five years, according to figures supplied by Mr Jim Morrison of Woy Woy.
The rainfall was more than twice the February average of 117.9mm and brings the total for the year to 345.3mm, well above the year-to-date average of 220.4mm at the end of February.
The total rainfall figure is similar to that at the same point last year, the first year in more than four years that rainfall remained above average for the entire year.
Last year, the Peninsula had recorded a total of 365.8mm at the end of February, 20mm more than this year.
