22mm here. I'll take that, probably on the upper side of model totals.

Good to see a nice spread of decent falls, although that Bendigo result is annoying! Hope there's a bit of catch-up before the event ends.

Torrential here the last 15 minutes. Now up to 42mm. Can we crack 50mm by 9am ? :o Thinking we will just run out of time, but get there by 10am. Creeks our here are rising fast. Suspect Dandenong Creek will be in flood soon (as forecast). Wouldn’t be a good idea to swim in the bay this arvo ;)

EC had about 20mm here last night so a pretty big fail. Not often that we get more than double EC predicts :D

Very similar here in Werribee, 26.3mm so far, very unexpected but happy with the result.

Since my weather station uses a haptic rain sensor would 18.9mm from 12am up until now seem right for Templestowe? https://tempestwx.com/station/29972

Just on 30mm here as the rain band starts to clear east, that is a very good fall for this area! The new weather station is working well, my manual rain gauge also has 30mm too.

A soaking 40mm in the gauge here with most falling between 4-8am. Very heavy at times . Takes our mtd to 115mm.

As Onehauti said, it's not over until the last drop falls. And while the temptation is to turn negative Nancy before before events are even properly underway, again this event has proved a ripper for many parts of the state including all of Melbourne pretty much.

Has turned noticeably cold here. As HB said, worth checking the snow cams tomorrow for late season falls.

I'm going to lock in about 30mm for here, even though my manual gauge has registered more than that.
A simply excellent result. :D

Getting the tail end of it now, should clear within the next 15 minutes. Should then be able to walk the dog who has been very patient.

Taking longer than expected to clear.

This one has finally delivered.

James is missing. He must have fainted from excitement 😄😄😄

10mm in the end. Good thing too is a cold drying breeze over the next few days which will prevent some issues with crops.

25mm all up here. Not a bad result. It’s pretty much in line with EC for here and above what GFS was forecasting yesterday. This takes us to 76mm MTD, which is above average and 810mm YTD, also above average. Rain has stopped here and it’s currently 8c.

Glad to see most have got a good soaking!

Gauge is saying 17. 5 here, pretty sure it was empty will check with others.
Access G has a big low for Monday week, should be a better rain producer for the west of the
state as it is starting back over WA, not that it is needed.
And assuming it stays in the progs.
