Hi All

Here in Wanniassa, Southern Canberra, I recorded 16mm overnight, taking the May total to 102mm, another well above average month, May usually is the driest month of the year here, Tuggeranong just down the road averages 26.6mm in May. Another 20mm or so expected on Monday. Backyard is waterlogged again.

That's a decent May total Nick. Must be freezing up there tonight. Are you close to potential low level snow locations?

Hi Blackee

I haven't had a chance to go read the Nylex 1000 yet, but rained most of the day, the Tuggeranong gauge is on 16.6mm so will be around that, a bit more to come tonight. Max of only 6.5C today, luckily the forecast wind hasn't eventuated. Looks windier tomorrow and EC has the 850 temps down around -3.5C on Wednesday, but as it is often the case looks dry when coldest air comes through so not likely to see snow here.
