Yeah Broome has nailed it tonight. Heavy continuous rain now for a few hours. Totals are going to climb really fast if this keeps up. It just seems to be feeding in off the ocean and keeps building in behind it. Love it. I hope we can crack the 100mm. I don't want to jinx it but I think we can go even more. Yehahh.

It is incredible Popeye! The frogs are going nuts but I can barely hearing them over that roaring downpour. There's a river flowing underneath my house. Even gumboots wouldn't keep my feet dry in this big wet!
Aside from last season of course, is this what the wet is like in broome normally?

That's the most refreshing shower I have had in a while. Had to crack a bottle of NZ white to celebrate lol. Just easing a little now. Any time you get 100mm its a big event for Broome Zobubble.

I think our frogs have been washed away. Water is getting higher around the back yard had to dig a few trenches.

170.2mm. What a night of rain. Broome just sat under it for hours. Nice little convergence zone if it was 40-50kms either way it would have missed. Luck of the draw and this time we lucked it. About time we saw a weather event like that. The roads were flowing the rain was just falling in sheets from the sky. It was warm rain too. Quite often with the big thunderstorms the rain is much colder. Last night it was just beautiful standing out in it.

Yep Popeye a good lashing of rain and so consistent for so long .

Havent seen it rain so hard for so long since the big downpour in 1997 where we had over 400mms in 12 hours .May have to look that one up... the rain just coming last night looked like a lot of ot was forming into good convection about 100kms out from here.

Went for a walk down GPoint beach at about 6.30 pm yesterday and it absoulutely pissed down there and got drenched but my pouch was loving it.

Also noticed huge algae bloom all along shoreline maybe caused by rain from last cyclone, it was like a sewer down there esp at low tide ,never seen it that bad before.

Yeah nice rains hey Des. Wanting more already.

Interesting about that Algae bloom along the beach. I might go down for a look this arvo. With the big swell and churned up waters off Broome for the last week I wonder if it is just finely mushed up weed or something that has drifted in with the big seas. Will check it out later. Love living here. Weather/environment never ceases to amaze me. Wild...

Yes Algae bloom yesterday was unbelievableat about 6pm .. Pardon my expression but it was like standing in the sh.t ponds ..same colour but no distinct odour ..thank god shocked smile

Do you reckon that there was a bit of interaction between moisure coming in from the south and a delevoping low in the north coming together to cause all that rain ? As I mentioned it did seem like a lot of convection was delevoping out to sea from here, building, and then coming into Broome.

Sweet little storm hitting Broome right now. Just got back from the plains for a bit of a chase. Was a bit of fun. Couple of OK pics and go pro footage. will have to have a look through it. Jimbo might have some better shots if he stayed till it hit.

Yeah was a great storm hey popeye!, just a shame wasn't too many clear air bolts, so no good lightning pics, some nice shelfies though,pics are on FB page.It was crazy winds down port when it hit it hit with force, so I attempted to hide from it behind the big toll shed as wind & rain were absolutely roaring in, very wet night in the end!, interesting to see what the next few days have for us, I hope it holds out till after fireworks tonight!...

Yeah I am hooked now. Might not take the kids next time lol. but it was a good feed at the Roebuck roadhouse on the way out though. Best strike was the one when you rocked up which I missed.

After clearing out the crap I managed to get a string of about 20 half decent shots and when you click through them quickly it looks awesome. Might see if I can put them together.

Radar is looking juicy again out past Derby. Could be a bit hit and miss for the fireworks tonight. Big call for the shire to make. Imagine 3000 people all caught out with something like last night screaming in. AHHH nasty.

This photo is titled 'Crocodile cloud'.

WOW Broome got creamed again this arvo. One of those storms when your driving around wondering what am I doing out in this lol. Got a little bit of video as it was building on the edge of town but gee when it hit, it hit hard. Loving it. Another 50mm to go with the 50mm from last night.

Footage from this arvo. Nothing overly fantastic but gee she let rip once it hit 5 minutes later in town. So many bolts hit within 0-2 seconds of where I was parked in town. Car shuddering stuff. Loved it.
