Brisbane has second driest summer on record

It has been a summer of opposites for Queensland weather.

While Brisbane sweated through an extraordinarily dry summer with just one quarter of the rain usually experienced, the drought-ridden western parts of the state saw extreme flooding.

The Queensland capital experienced just 106 millimetres of rain this summer, significantly lower than the seasonal average.

It was also the second driest summer on record, beaten only by 1919.

Weatherzone forecasters report January was the wettest month, with 53 millimitres of rain falling, while February only experienced 17 millimetres of precipitation.
