FORECASTS of a significant rainfall event this weekend has brought mixed rewards for producers across New South Wales.

With drought-stricken producers told to expect some of the best rain totals this year across the weekend, some are still looking to the sky on Sunday morning after small scattered falls.

Those in the northern part of the state were the luckiest, with Bingara, Moree and Narrabi receiving up to 30 millimetres by Sunday morning according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

Helen Nicolle, Orange Grove, Bingara, posted on the Who Got The Rain? Facebook page to share news of their 31mm fall. 

Lucille Scoble, Bendygleet, Moree, told of their 25mm, while Julie Mackay, Mullaley, recorded 12mm and Mandy Simpson, Eulah Creek, had 19mm in total in her gauge.

Kate Jones, Curlewis, had 12mm.

But it wasn’t as significant for others in the state.

Tamworth had been forgotten until rain began to fall at 11pm on Saturday night and reached almost 8mm early on Sunday morning. 

Yugilbar Station saw 3mm, according to Lorraine Sinnamon, while Vicki Rogan at Bundarra recorded 7mm.
