It’s moving very quickly on the radar, but a few rumbles of thunder here and gusty winds. Some big rain drops too. Still waiting for it to rain properly though.

Just had the biggest bolt of lightning wake up the entire house, CG within 100m. Jeepers.

Edit : Lightning map confirms this 100m, but I'm almost sure it was closer. Never had the whole room light up and bang at the same time with that much energy to wake us all up!

Yes, there was rapid development just to the west of Melbourne on the radar. Bucketing down here now. Haven’t had any lightning locally, but rumbles occurring in the distance.

Some loud thunder here and about 10 mins of heavy rain here, I love waking up to a thunderstorm.

Gauges adding up quickly now across central Vic :D Nice way to end a mini hot spell.

7mm in FC and plenty of red and orange still to come. December rainfall off to a start :D

4.5mm in the gauge. We had big wind gusts around midnight (40 Kts at AWS) that woke us up, and most of the rain fell around 4:30 am.

Nice and cool today - very pleasant after yesterday.

Another live lightning site is:

It is zoomable and has quite a few options (satellite, roads etc)

You can also zoom in on blitzortung by clicking on 'Real time Maps' > dynamic size then it will bring up the current active strike zones across the globe which you can zoom down on. I use both but find blitzortung gets more strikes for some reason.
