Rainfall figures for the 9am bulletin are generally for the preceding 24 hours, while those for the 3pm bulletin are for the preceding 6 hours since 9am. Note that values are manually entered into the bulletins and sometimes contain typographical errors which may lead to warnings about "NAs introduced by coercion".
