This rain forecast will bring tears to your eyes

LOWOOD'S own backyard weather forecaster Hally Herrmann's methods might not be the most scientific, but he is adamant they have not let him down in 60 years.

The "Onion Oracle" kept a proud German tradition going this New Year's Eve by using an onion to predict the rainfall for the year ahead. Not everyone will take Hally's forecast as the gospel but, if you do, it looks as though it could be a while until we see any decent rain again.

In the early hours of yesterday, Hally concluded January would be a dry month.

Our first relief from a hot, dry summer could come in February, with Hally's onion telling him it will be a month of "good rain".
