Goodness me - 43mm since 3pm today, 38mm in past two hours.
Unbelievable! So that's 70-odd mm for the dates for you at least?

Hardly a drop here so far today, though we are now in the middle of the STW area, so could change quickly.
Yep. 74mm this week. So far...

Yeah. It's not over yet. We've got a river happening in the Gully over the back fence.

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

Just got 5mm with that "blob". More at airport AWS.

EC reckons 30mm this evening...

P.S. That new Rainbow radar is brilliant.

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

Nearly 30mm in past 24 hours here.

Looks like a similar amount tomorrow night if EC is on the money again.

Incidentally, March 2020 had max temp mean about 1c below average here.

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

22mm in the gauge. A great start to April.

Probably another 10mm or so likely in coming days.

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

A good opportunity for the new radar at Wimmera to get a workout too:

Re: Settled week then rain? 23-31 March

Perhaps 5mm today.

Looks like a substantial cold front late in the week. Next weekend will be cold with probably some snow flurries on the Alps.

This is just an amazing 2020 so far. What's this going to do for the Hume Dam do we think?
It's only 15% at present. Some small rises in the Murray River upstream, but we'll need follow up rains through winter.

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

GFS 6Z got falls over 100mm next 24 hours in parts of east central including Melbourne’s outer northeast and Yarra Valley :o 3mm here so far. DP is now up to 14C so getting muggy. GFS is way overestimating rain totals. ICON a more realistic 15mm predicted tonight for here. Only 5mm in gauge atm. 25...

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

The band that hit Ivanhoe appears to be tracking Hay - Deniliquin - Kyabram - Seymour. That'll miss us.

Raining at present. Almost 10mm so far.

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

00Z GFS has 40mm now for us. Today has been frustrating though. It's trying to rain but just can't at the moment.

As for Birdsville earlier today:

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

One things that worries me is an injection of dry desert air from the Northwest that's currently sitting over central South Australia. That killed our last big tropical system in January (the mega-disappointing January 19-20 system which promised a deluge and delivered nothing).

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

Just started raining lightly here. Mildura has scored 23mm already, which indicates that the heavy rain is falling somewhat West of many forecast models.
