Sotting in at about 11 o'clock on Saturday night, rain fell all day Sunday, part of Monday, and all day Tuesday and Wednesday, till more rain had boon registered than tlio farmer from thu Young district had seen during the past six of eight months. To stand at tho weather board at tho G. P. O., where a big crowd seemed to be always scanning tho reports from the various Stations in search of Infor mation as to whether tho rain had ex tended to their particular district, one could realise if lie had no knowledge of it already what an immenso part the rain or absence of rain plays in tho daily life of the Australian community.

Weather Forecasts. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 9 April 1915
Weather Forecasts. Mr. Wraggo, who is often quoted ?when a particular district verifies Ills forecasts, always qualifies his pro phecies by slating that he deals with "Australia as a whole," therefore his forecasts are not of much account, so far as any particular locality Is con cerned. A correspondent of a Corowa newspaper loses patience with local .Koather prophets, and ho writes:-* "isn't It about time you withdrew from your*.>paper the forecasts of rainfall; which are rarely, if ever correct. There are -certain months, for rainfall, and by studying the records of the past and predicting rainfall on similar dates to previous years a certain number of lucky guesses are bound to be made. The greatest astronomers of all time have devoted painstaking and contin uous efforts to >endeavour to predict the nature of seasons and without success. In the present day we are familiar with the high and 'low pres sure movements, wliich sometimes under very similar conditions, produce rai...
