How does the Sellicks radar go in re to accuracy? I know it has a big blind spot from KI to Southern YP.

Bad. Even as far as Clare it fails.

Only way to describe it as when we did a comparison to it VS Doppler, Doppler would show a Dark Red core, Sellicks will show that as yellow.

It's due to the trees that surround it even though some have been cut down and has improved it a slight touch but I can remember it fail on a massive note in January of 2005 when we had an afternoon thunderstorm roll through, Sellicks showed light blue even tho it belted down, about an inch fell out of it, Doppler wasn't up back then but was in the process of being built or something close to.

Well once again the media and BoM made this look 100x worse than what it actually was, only 12.6mm so far and by the current radar there is not much to go, 30 odd mins left i'd say.

Very ashamed of the media and how dare they still say that Adelaide is under Severe Weather Warnings when they were dropped prior it hitting, they use outdated information. The weather is like driving really, every bit of info is new as it is constantly changing.

36mm is the highest I can see at Ceduna with 25-35mm elsewhere in the West.

General falls of 10-15mm by 9AM in the Adelaide Area with 4-8mm since.

My overnight minimum was 28.8C so a very warm night as I suspected. Ofcourse it'll be obliterated by the cold start yesterday but in my records I note the overnight min when it differs from the 24hr min.

Rain just started here. Dewpoint almost 24C at the BOM station. I have 29.7/22.1 at my place.

ACCESS current run looks so beautiful, after this weekend cold front, it'll keep the red line over us right through!

Well another failure needless to say i am less than impressed with the hyped up weather warnings of a once in 10 year summer storm when all that was delivered was humid and wet conditions with a steady fall of light rain....hopefully the next significant weather event we get comes off as forecast not fall in a gigantic heap like this one did

That is hilarious, 1 in 10 year storm. Where the hell did those muppets pull that tripe from anyway? Moderate rain here and tropical outside.

oh well, thanks to the aws rain gauge screwing up looks
like noarlunga's rainfall stats are stuffed for the rest
of the year. it will be recorded as 0 for today. PFFFFT.
ended up with another 0.2 since my last post, so that
makes 23.7mm total for me.

Media called it storm... Bureau event for Jan. Due to thunderstorm being mentioned n STW/SWW etc media put 2 and 2 together and ran with storm for all and sundry.

But for me, the event panned out exactly as expected. No hype, no fizzer. Just a good summer rainband but lacking the grunt due to lack of a powerful forcing mechanism, trigger was good but broad and not convective enough nor slow enough to really get things going. Was too mobile to get large totals going despite 65MM PWATS. Expected 27mm for my place and ended up with 25.2mm which is a pleasing drop.

More interesting tropical feeds ahead...not over yet and good chance they'll make this one look fairly stock standard.

TS cool

13.2 mm total for this system. measured between 6am to 4 pm this arvo.
Just been for a drive in the hills around MOUNT BARKER, WOODSIDE etc,,,, still green everywhere for this time of year, which is incredible, could we just keep getting rainband after rainband all summer long untill winter? and then we get a normal winter and have flooding due to saturated soils???? bring on june , july and lets see what happens.

That would be fun wouldn't it!

Cycling to work today and part of my route takes me along Third Creek up the UniSA Magill Campus end of things - the creek is once again flowing well which for this time of the year is most unusual. Hasn't really stopped even though we are well past winter.

Gotta laugh at the BOM and the media. 1 in a 10 year storm, severe weather warnings a day in advance! We got some rain here, holy crap what a catastrophe. What a bunch of dumb asses. Herp de derp. Seriously, wtf wrong with these morons? Seriously they can't forecast rain to a reasonable accuracy less than 24hrs out? Don't tell me they couldn't see that this was only ever going to be moderate event and all the hype and severe weather warnings were never warrented? LOL

i'm glad it turned out the way it did, a nice drop of
rain to keep every ones gardens green and virtually no
one got smashed, blacked out or flooded.
enough already. nobody needs, wants or deserves any more.
this was a bit like a big bully coming at you and you think
'oh no here we go again' and you close your eyes and wait
for the inevitable smashing and as he walks past he
gives you a pat on the head, a lolly and says 'have a
nice day'.
having said that it doesn't mean he's not going to whack
you the next time.
