MR. WRAGGE'S FORECASTS. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 26 February 1915

MR. WRAGGE'S FORECASTS. Mr. Clement Wraggc 1ms complied ft forecast for'the seasons of Austra-{ Ha for the next 15 years, mainly bas- ' ed on the physical conditions of the ! sun with respect to its maxima and minima moods, moving in cycles of 11 years. -Mr. Wragge says, taking Aus tralia as a whole, the rainfall will be below the average. This by no means Implies that there will be no rain. On the contrary, good intervening rains will come, and the last part of the year will be better than the first. From the middle of 1915 onwards the rain fall will markedly increase, and from 1916 to 1920 inclusive will be distinct ly good, with abundant precipitation. After 1920 the rainfall will steadily begin to fall off, and the worst part of the next "under-average" period will be justified In being called a drought. In 1925 matters will begin to improve, and good seasons will prevail from i 1925 to 1935. /
