Summer rainfall over South Australia was mostly average to above average apart from some areas in the eastern part of the state where it was slightly below average. Most of the rain fell during the first few weeks of December 2008. For the January/February months of 2009 the pastoral districts reported totals that were generally very much below average except some areas in the northeast of the state where near average rainfall was received.
