Rainfall brings welcome relief

The rainfall measurements for March and April were recorded by Len Smith in Bornman Street, Kroonstad.

  • March:

On Friday, 8 March, 10 mm were recorded, while 20 mm were measured on Saturday, 9 March, 6 mm on Sunday, 10 March, and 89 mm on Monday, 11 March. The total rainfall for March is 125 mm.

Last year, 214 mm were recorded in Kroonstad during the same month.

  • April:

On Wednesday (03/04), Kroonstad experienced a typical Free State thunderstorm. A welcome 25 mm were recorded on Thursday (04/04). Altogether 79 mm were measured for the first week in April. This is in stark contrast with the 14 mm measured during the same period last year.

With more rain forecast for the days ahead, it is expected that the rivers and dams should fill up before the usual rainless winter months.

“It is amazing to see how the shrubs and grass in the gardens and fields have changed colour,” Smith says.

“I pray that the farmers with drought-stricken land will now also be able to reap a bountiful harvest.”
