Really getting quite hopeful now about decent rain around here and much of inland NSW on or about Monday. Access and GFS reasonably similar, EC not bad either. I would love to see 15mm or more around here.

Well my office windown close to the CBD and not that far from Obs Hill has got a good few splats of rain on it over the last 30 mins or so.

I would be VERY surprised if the Obs Hill guage remains at 0.0mm this morning, I think there should have been just enough to get a drop in the gauge and any 0.1mm or 0.2mm will probably be genuine. The Northern beaches getting a good drop also this morning.

A noteworthy dry spell comes to an end, but of course the majority of the Sydney basin won't see rain until tomorrowm Sunday or Monday.

Yep, DM the setup is promising for some fairly widespread falls for the farmers. Very timely in this critical spring period for them. This current run of fronts turning to cutoff lows tracking across from WA seems to be following a fairly consistent zonal pattern, so just on the laws of probabilities we would hope to score at least one decent fall out of them. The SST's to the NW are good; to the NE not too bad either so there is the moisture potential there to tap into and it looks like the Mon/Tues system will be the one to do it. I was up in the Whitsundays last week and the SE trades were firing up again so that's a positive sign for moisture input from the NE.

No rain for 35 days at most Sydney locations. According to the forecast, the dry spell will be broken today. Radar shows showers moving into the Northern Beaches and eastern suburbs.

At home today. Alternating between heavy drizzle and light rain in the past hour here. Looks like about 1mm in the backyard gauge.

I have to say it is a pretty disappointing way to break the dry spell here; some mucky onshore rubbish wafting in on a cold southerly. Geez, couldn't it be a storm or the leading edge of a huge trough system?

The precip down there sure is very coastal, just that thin strip.

Glorious day out here, breeze pretty fresh and cool but sunny as. Someone somewhere should pick up 20 - 30mm over the coming 5 or 6 days.

Still showing 0.0mm at Obs Hill at the min, possible that nothing registered there this morning I guess although there were a few spots of rain around the CBD this morning.

So we could squeeze another official dry day out of this spell yet, that should change tomorrow.

A couple of showers showing up on radar in the basin now, might get some wet stuff soon.
It's a shame these forums are dying as we have a decent forecast for the next 24 hours but it's dead quiet on here. That's progress I suppose with all the other social media sites in place.

Just had a nice big crack of thunder, it's been a while. Should be a few mills by morning going off the radar.

Good noisy thunderstorm just after midnight last night, a brief heavy hail shower (about 10 minutes) hail about bean ball size. Quite intense while it lasted. It rumbled and grumbled for quite a while afterwards too.

Airport said 1mm, I reckon it was better than that but we won't see the official town reading until next week.

Had 6mm last night. Is a beautiful day today. In shorts and t-shirt. Looks like a fair bit of rain to come over the next few days.

I know the main event isn't really until tomorrow and in to Monday / Tuesday but a little disappointed with the rain around my area in West Sydney (North Parramatta).

The rain moving over Vic / NSW was a little bit further south than the BOM were thinking it would be and today was supposed to have plenty of showers and rain periods setting in towards evening originally, at least on the coast anyway.

Hopefully tomorrow does the business as I got just under 1mm of rain and it hardly touched the soil, no moisture got in at all.

Tipped out 9.5mms to 9am here,36.5mms out of this system.
Still plenty of sub soil moisture left from June's 313mms, so this was a good little top up.
Point Perpendicular, 15km SSE of here managed 43mms to 9 on top of 19.6mms yesterday.

Good rain along only along the coastal fringe south of the Gong,nothing north of there as yet,what is north of Wollongong is off shore, can see the rain areas and storms moving east in far western NSW, this would be the trough moving east out that way, should make the east coast by tonight or tomorrow, and give us some rain from the west.

Looking spectacular for a dumping of rain and storms right along the NSW coast line with an area near Sydney having some special turbo charged activity
ACCESS says someone gets 50mm near Sydney. Around Midnight on Monday ( 2morrow night)

Batten down the hatches and watch for flash flooding
