Rain a godsend for farms

THE prayers of farmers throughout the Clarence Valley have been answered.

About 32mm of rain fell in Grafton until 9am on Monday, and more wet weather is on its way.

Weatherzone yesterday reported a high chance of 20-40mm today, and predicted 5-10mm of rain tomorrow.

The forecast indicated increasing rain through to the end of the week.

A storm swept across the region on Sunday evening, with reports of hail in Seelands, Junction Hill, Ulmarra and Tucabia.

Junction Hill resident Sharon Cannon said her husband was lucky and had moved his car undercover before the hail hit.

"When the storm broke we received hail the size of golf balls," Mrs Cannon said.

"Which was uncanny as my husband was watching the golf on the television."

Mrs Cannon kept watch on the radar as the storm rolled back around on Sunday night.

"The rain is very welcome and we do hope that no one had damage from the hail," she said.
