Melbournes water storages finally more than 1/3rd full!

Yay, today the Melbourne Water website tells me:

Melbourne’s water storages are currently 33.7% full

Bring on the rest of the rain, please! The picture at the moment is rather sad, with the summary for the week of the 5th July (latest to date) saying:

However, while the wet weather and rise in storage levels this week has been welcome, our reservoirs are still comparatively low following 10 years of below average inflows and the driest year on record in 2006. Storages at the same time last year were 47.8% (847,229 million litres) full.
