While the storm front meant to bring rain to Albury-Wodonga and surrounds this week lost strength as is reached the region, a smattering of rain did reach fire-ravaged Tumbarumba and drought-stricken Deniliquin.
The Bureau of Meteorology had predicted the border region could receive rain from thunderstorms across Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week, but the predictions mostly failed to materialise.
In drought-riddled Deniliquin, 7mm of rain fell in the 24 hour to 9am Thursday but the rest of the week remained dry.
In Tocumwal 0.2mm of rain fell on Thursday, while Benalla recorded 1.0mm of rain also on Thursday.
In Khancoban, just over the border from Corryong, 1.2mm fell in the 24 hours to 9am Thursday, while 0.6mm fell in the 24 hours to 9am Friday.
