Having the same issue Eevo.

And it looks like a decent rain band to me with heavy falls and the odd embedded storm both likely.

Warnings have been spot on and all warranted, our weather is getting more severe as time goes on, the earth is screwed!!

the earth is fine it doesn't give a fat rats clacker
what we do with or to it,
it's the people that are screwed.
radar and everything else loading fine here.
looks like a bit of an éntree coming across the gulfs,
that big stuff on the border is going to drill down on
us like a bullet train. cloud tops touching -90° which
puts them around 55,000', that's trophy class stuff.

how about 0-200mm, can't go far wrong with that.
bloody rainfall totals. i stay right away from 'em.
best way is to work out how much you're gunna get
after it's over and check your rainguage.
it's gunna rain, some will get heaps some will get
bugger all. i'm just happy we're getting all these
juicy (pun intended)systems coming through smack
bang in the middle of summer instead of day after
day of boring as batsheet heat and fine weather.

just started the first vestiges of dribbles here.
(and im talking about rain, not me poke )

It doesn't mean 100% chance of 20-70mm. It means there's a 100% of at least 0.2mm, a 50% chance of at least 20mm, and a 25% chance of at least 70mm.

Will be interesting to see what we do get.

It's a sticky 31.5 C and 35% humidity here in Gulfview Heights. Going to be a bad night for sleeping I think.

Not if you have ducted air-conditioning, a nice 22deg and snuggled under a quilt smile

Radar seriously overestimating, just a few spots falling.
