Re: 1-7 March: Cold front then ex TC or trough?

21.8mm's up to 9am here - none since. 16.8mm's at Ballarat Airport.
Once again a lot less than further east but still some fairly useful rain.
I was thinking maybe 5 to 10mm's here so I am pretty happy.
Bring on the Next system and I hope it forms a bit further West next time.
