Benoni weatherman Clive Webber, who has a weather station at his Rynfield home, said November 26 saw the lowest daily amount since then, with a reading of .4mm.
Webber said a total of 59.4mm of rainfall has fallen from December 1 to 7.
Here is a breakdown of the daily readings:
• December 1: 0.8mm.

• December 5: 35.8mm.
• December 6: 13.6mm.
• December 7: 4.6mm (cut-off at 8am).
