Re: Front with rain and storms: June 30-July 2

I have 10mm in the gauge ( I finally have one set up ) so not to bad, adds to what has been an exceptionally wet June locally.

Nice steady occasionally heavy rain here for the last 90 mins, sky to my east has remained light while the sky is dark towards the north and west.

Re: Front with rain and storms: June 30-July 2

Re: Cold week with occasional showers: June 18-22

Nothing much to report here, just a few light showers this morning and only had a few drops from the band of showers moving through Melbourne now.

Re: Sequence of fronts with possible low: June 9-15

10-12mm fell around the local area today, on top of last weeks deluge we are well over double the June average (38mm). Still plenty of water laying around the paddocks between here and Geelong, creeks and rivers flowing and farm dams full. Great to see Perth has had 107mm for the week, falls in the ...

Re: Sequence of fronts with possible low: June 9-15

Nice and steady rain here too, I thought I would be more rain shadowed today.

It’s very mild this morning, rain coming down here now and I thought I heard a rumble of thunder too.

Re: Sequence of fronts with possible low: June 9-15

Min of 12C in the city and 8C here. Currently 5C at Mount Hotham and Falls Creek which are poking into the warmer air aloft. Not quite your usual winter weather for 5am :? Sign of the incoming surge of warmer damp weather that will dominate the week. Progs still looking very encouraging for follow ...

Re: Sequence of fronts with possible low: June 9-15

Great to see that SW WA is finally getting some rain, I spoke with dad over the weekend, he said he has never seen the area (Perth hills) look so dry. Paddocks with just dust and stubble in June...

It’s great to see long time dry creeks flowing again, the Lerderderg river is flowing at the gorge again too.

Re: Strong front and possible low: June 2-6

It certainly was a wet day, some pws locally recording 90-100mm... my wheelbarrow is almost full with water, just incredible for June. The long term June average (1880-1962, station closed in 1962) is 38.2mm and the highest daily total for June in that time is 48.3mm, so quite unusual.

Re: Strong front and possible low: June 2-6

The PWS on the eastern side of Trentham has just cracked 100mm since midnight :) Main convergence is weakening as it comes down the northern side of the range but I have finally got to 21mm with light to moderate rain. Not surprising to see a minor flood warning on the Werribee river. I live on a r...

Re: Strong front and possible low: June 2-6

Street are a mess here, especially around the new housing developments... mud everywhere, few roads are closed around town due to flooding. Rowsley, just west of town is now on 81mm since midnight, Bacchus Marsh town centre is now almost on 60mm. Long term average for June is 36mm.
