Grenfell receives a little of the promised rain from the weekend

Despite the Bureau of Meteorology's promise of widespread rainfall across the region over the weekend, Grenfell only managed to find 7mm in the rain gauge on Monday morning.

The rain began to fall on Sunday afternoon and though constant, locals checking their gauges across town and through BoM all agree that there was only 7mm of rainfall.

The good news is that there is more rain predicted to fall across the region towards the end of the week.
