Victoria is drying out and much of the state is beginning to look to the skies for rain.

The Victorian Country Hour crossed the state looking at this seasons weather conditions.

As the hot conditions hit everyone was wishing for more rainfall during spring.

Ross from Bessybelle in Western Victoria says it has been the strangest year and not in the good way.

"We had the driest 9 month period on record up to winter, then we've had a terrible, wet winter and id we don't get a bit of moisture and a bit of warmth we could have another failed spring."

Kelvin from Benambra was shearing in a warm constant wind.

He says a little forecast rain wont cause any trouble for him.

"Rain will be better than dry sheep but the shearers might think something different."

Matt Cropley at Nambrok was irrigating some of his pasture for his dairy cows.

A bit more rain to slow down the irrigators would be very welcome.

Luke from near Horsham has been cutting hay.

"I think we are going to get some fairly handy hay crops this year."

He thinks he will be finished in a few weeks.
