Re: another 1 or 2 lows tracking SE over Vic 22 Oct - ?

Gauge is saying 17. 5 here, pretty sure it was empty will check with others.
Access G has a big low for Monday week, should be a better rain producer for the west of the
state as it is starting back over WA, not that it is needed.
And assuming it stays in the progs.

Re: another 1 or 2 lows tracking SE over Vic 22 Oct - ?

Hasn't happened yet, heaviest rain is meant to be overnight,
the low is up at Pt Augusta depends where it goes, but it doesn't
really look like the whole system is getting its act together.

EC is not interested for much here, up to 5 today up to 10 tomorrow.

BOM is saying 9 to 25 for Fri/Sat for me, looking at the models probably seems to be fair.
A bit of a variation or storm could see double that, but looks like
the more north or east, the more rain.

EC not so keen, but still early on, as usual lately

6 mm here so far, looks to be about it if the low can't crank it up more.

Re: Another low tracking south over Vic/Tas 16-19 Oct

Currently looking at around a possible 15-25mm this coming weekend. We had some stream rises in local rivers last week. i.e. Lake Eppalock has gone from 42 to just under 46%. There is a swamp between Maldon and Laanecoorie (Bell's Swamp) which I often use as an indicator of whether we have had a we...

Re: Warm with possible heavy falls developing: First week of October

Got lucky under a heavy shower for a while ended up with 18 mm so far.
Strange shower heavy, but light drops, or maybe I'm just getting deafer!
Edit I see 56 at Warrnambool well outside the warning area, the way it goes.

Big downgrade on BOM this morning. Maybe just 15-20mm, not the 30+mm I thought we might get.
Main cloud band and low appear to be splitting, but rain is meant to fill back in over night
but more to the south, still hoping 20 to 30

13mm here. Good to see a spread of decent to half-decent falls.

Hopefully any of those who came in on the low side a bit to the north, will more than catch up with round 2.
Yes hopefully Gordon after 3 mm with round 1,
Bom is saying 30 to 60 for the 2 days.

Rain has stopped. We got 2mm.

Mid-week has all the ingredients for something big.
EC has a total of about 70 here and bom access going for about 40 to 50.
Will be very interesting to see it evolve from now.
