W i t h a day's rainfall in the range 0· 30 to 0· 49 in. work may begin after 2 dry-days. W i t h a day's rainfall in the range ^ 0· 50 in. work may begin after 3 dry-days. O n and after April 17th a day's rainfall of ^ 0 - 1 9 in. does not interfere with a run of work. In this period : W i t h a day's rainfall in the range 0· 20 to 0· 29 in. work may begin after 1 dry-day. 30 in. work may begin after 2 dry-days. (c) The dry-days specified in section 4(b) before work can begin again need not be consecutive.

O n and after April 17th rainfall ^ 0· 19 in. in one day does not interfere with a run of work. Such days are counted as work-days. (b) In February to mid-April a run of work is ended by a rainfall ^ 0 · 15 in. in one day.

3. Minimum temperatures are read each morning throughout the frost season, usually April-May. 4. The data are analysed on a weekly basis and for each week (starting week 1 on April 1st) the lowest, second lowest, and third lowest temperatures are selected. 5. These values (for one year only) are adjusted from the nearest longterm record to give estimates of long-term minima. 6. The estimates of long-term weekly minima are combined to give values from given dates until the end of the season. Thus emerges a value for the average of the weekly minima from April 1st to May 26th (8 weeks) ; also, corresponding values emerge for the second lowest and third lowest temperatures.
