Distant rumblings here from those cells just to our south here in Burnside Heights. Doesn't look like we will be getting anything. :(

I've already given up & began the nightly watering routine.

Fascinating watching the storms develop in a northwesterly direction along a narrow convergence line, running from about Melbourne to beyond Ballarat, with us smack in the middle of the storm train-line!

Just when it seemed we were sure to miss out, with all the action to the dreaded east...

As hillybilly suggested several posts back, the steering is all over the place with this one. Seems anything can happen!

That cell tracking through the southeast burbs has dropped 50mm locally. Looks like an absolute cracker. Very patchy though, with spots only a few kms sat on near zero.

Down here in Tas waiting on a band of showers and storms which is edging southeast. Tomorrow should be wet here. Will be welcome.

Cracking storm just through here very lightning active and lots of pea sized hail which whitened the ground.
Temp dropped from 24c just before the storm to 14c.
23 mm's in 30 minutes between 7.10 and 7.40pm.
Best storm for ages here

Couple of mm here overnight. Now overcast and humid. Today should be the best day for Tas, though like Vic it is going to be hit and miss. Locally heavy falls but also locally near zero.

Today looks to be mostly favouring eastern Vic, with some extension in central parts.

Friday still looks hot, particularly in the Mallee and back into SA. The airmass if horribly hot, but we fortunately mostly miss it. EC is showing temps above 45C back in SA.

Did better than expected here yesterday, with 15mm all up. We had several storms from about 4pm onwards, including thundery rain later in the evening from the convergence line that Gordon mentioned. Some great lightning events at times with a few big forks across the sky and thunder that shook the house.

Already warming up. Currently 22c. We reached a max yesterday of 28.6c, our warmest day since 18th March.

A very high cloud-base storm over parts of Bendigo at present. It's chucking out some CGs, but no precip yet.

Yesterday there was a decent storm over Lake Eppalock and surrounds. Redesdale got 20mm in it.

Rolling thunder with light to moderate rain at times in bayside for the last two hours now. Very pleasant. Looks to be getting more severe as the line moves east. Cell over presently Kinglake looks meaty.

Would have had about 5-8 mm here.

A couple of thunderstorms here this afternoon, dropping 7mm.

Not quite as good as yesterday, but still a nice way to finish a hot day. Currently foggy and a cool 14c.

Couple of cracking storms for us south of Hobart. Hail and torrential rain. Currently on the road and keen to check the manual as the rainfall rates appeared to have overwhelmed the AWS. Looks like 15-20mm, but will report the final tomorrow.

Pretty amazing day with storms in Hobart, Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney tough patchy in each so really hit and miss.

Such a strange system. Starts out cool, turns humid then storm, now it clear to a hot Friday. Not often that all happens, and thumping storms in Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra and Sydney. Steering all over the place some some spots getting their monthly total while other barely got the pavement wet.

Fortunately we mostly miss the heat tomorrow. Adelaide will get close to 40C and might well crack 45C out in the west of SA. Those will be early season records or early misses. Front for Saturday but looks dry unless you are in Tas.

Topped out at 24C down here on Friday. Nice day.

Lots of early season records in SA. Adelaide’s 40.3C was an equal early season record, but much warmer in some of the suburbs up to 43C. Regional spots broke lots of records.

VIC and TAS mostly missed it which is not a bad thing :)

Struggling to see much for a few days. Dull swly weather. High is close so not much weather in it.

Maybe an active trough in about a week.
