Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-23rd Jan 2020

Looks like heavy rain fell around Lake Burrumbeet about 20kms west of Ballarat
PWS on the north side of the Lake registered 97mm
Another one just to the west of the Lake over 200mm's

It's a PWS so sometimes they can overread but still pretty incredible

Seeing some fairly frequent sheet Lightning from those storms just to my West and NW. Thunder a bit louder now but it still looks like missing me. Checked some PWS - 16mm's at Burrumbeet and 17 mm's at Lexton. https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/IBALLA16 Edit - Storm only about 15kms away goi...

Looks like a nothing day here. Dew point at the Airport (Ballarat) has dropped below zero, so dry here.
Can just see the tops of those storms NE Of Melbourne.
Locally just a few fair weather Cu around.
Fizzer here I think for today anyway. Again. :x

Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-20th Jan 2020

Quite a Bit of Thunder and Lightning with that storm but not much Rain.
I recorded 4mm's with 3.4mm's at the Airport.
Looks like its over for here anyway.
Max today was 34.8c on my PWS - Now 20.3c.
45 Strikes detected on my Lightning tracker.

Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-20th Jan 2020

Currently 34/14 here.
Storm to my SW cant hear any thunder though - too far away?
A Line of storms seems to be developing not far to my west
Still a few holes in the Line lets hope it fills in and develops further
before it reaches here.

Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-20th Jan 2020

That storm NE of Geelong developed very quickly.
Only Storm around at the moment.
Fearing I might be a bit too far West to get much.

Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-20th Jan 2020

Looks a bit marginal for here. Wednesday looks the best chance for any storms.
Should be better further east so lets hope they get a good drink in the fire areas
and that lightning doesn't trigger any more fires.
Only had 33mm's of Rain since November 11 so could use some now.

Very Happy to be proved wrong. 12.0mm's up to 9am today best fall since November 8 last year. MTD now 14.8mm's. Ballarat Airport had 9.6mm's but Looking at local P...
