Re: Series of troughs then a deep low: April 1-5

23mm recorded at home overnight to add to what's been a remarkable wet start to the year for this area. :D I'd be happy if we had the most miserable cold, wet winter on record, especially considering we can't do too much atm outside of work. Might as well be entertained by the weather at least. Brin...

Drizzly showers continuing
The central cbd area looks like it may take a while to clear
Any thoughts ?
Hope it clears by this evening. My Kelpie is threatening to tear the place apart having missed out on her morning walk. :P

Another 55mm here overnight to add to what's been an extraordinary wet start to the year. :o
At this rate we could be heading for one of our wettest year's for some time.

Re: Mild to warm, then some rain: 22-26 Feb

School Pick Up. “Again” You can say that again. Normally my wife is the one who gets caught in it, today was my turn! :P And this was after driving through a massive downpour with flashing flooding along the Deer Park bypass trying to get home so I could pick him up. It's been one cell after anothe...

Constant distant Thunder for the last half hour here in Tarneit!
Saw several massive bolts from that cell while driving to work. Looks like another one is about to hit home.

Re: Vic - Humid & Potential for Rain: Feb 5-20, 2020

Yes the rabbits are not eating my garden now due to the new growth down in the valley and hills. I quite like this warm humid weather, no blasting wind and not having to water the lawn and gardens. I'm quite enjoying these conditions too, although the extra mowing is killing me atm. The garden in g...

It's about as boring as you can get here with absolutely nothing happening, and that unlikely going to change anytime soon.

Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-26th Jan 2020

Have some thunder rumbling about here. 5mm so far. Noticed some reddish mud in places here as well, but not as much as you’ve got in those pics steveco. Should soon wash away quite quickly. I just noticed the red mud stains in the doorway/car park upon arriving at work. Thank god I had the cars und...

90% chance of 20mm - 40mm tomorrow according the BOM.

Would be ideal!
At least they are not saying "near 100% chance of rain" and dropped our chances by 10%. :P

Sun didn't last long here with the cloud cover already rolling in.

Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-26th Jan 2020

The rain finally started falling during the afternoon here yesterday. We got roughly 10-13mm at home (haven't checked the gauge yet).
All up that's at least 80mm (including last Wednesday's smashing).
Absolutely fantastic result for this area and long overdue. :D

Yep, was about to say the same thing Adam. I have a awesome view of the development out my south facing window here at work (really must learn how to post pictures).
Not long now.

Surprised to see the BoM predicting 100% chance of rain. I would have gone with 90%.
The BOM are going to look pretty bloody stupid if it doesn't rain somewhere in Melbourne today (and that includes ALL of Melbourne, not just the inner eastern suburbs).
