Its coming......

I've never seen it get dry dry enough to call it a desert.

We have had so many crap wet years in the last 20 we need a few good dry ones to get something done

Even 18 was dog sh!5 for 4 months before it finally decided to get useful
Yup, I recon 300-350 would be fine here. Maybe 400 if we could get 22 deg from June to August
400 would work if temps peaked at 23-24max June July with one proviso... 200 mm needs to fall april, may and june.
400 is a bloody disaster if 50 or less falls may june.
Sodden winter followed by dry or very dry early summer is the single worst scenario.
Dry winter followed by cool and wet ( by our standards ) early summer is "grain shed isn't big enough"

300-350 mm being enough here is a laughable idea ( otherwise you would cry).
91/92 growing season iirc, maybe 92/93 was 12.5 rain-guage inches for the growing year, and it wasn't funny.
