7.7 mm since midnight (11:25 am), 0.2 mm to midnight. Maximum rain rate of 4.5 mm/hr today smile in short bursts . Gutters overflowing.

Your latitude and longitude are about:
-33.98 south
+139.08 east right?!

If you can put up with maybe 0.5-1 mm from here till later (today), may be ok, no guarantee though (it won't be more). Hope all goes well anyhow smile .

Edit: think this post may be too late. Oh well.

Well I worked until 0500 today. Was looking forward to waking up to the gentle pitter patter of steady rain but no, a whole 0.6mm as at 1315 and the radar not looking too promising. Father in law at Coonalpyn had had a whole 0.3mm so far. *Disappointed*

yer it looked good this morning down south and fragmented as it
approached, the upper coldpool and trough has sustained things
nicely through the use and mallee. penetration inland is better
than i expected too, robertstown had their first big shower around
12:30, a couple of smaller showers and about to get drilled by
another decent one, from the looks of radar if they havn't had it
already i would think they would have had well over their
predicted 2mm after this next shower.
6.4mm here so far

All the juicy stuff went to the north and south, only had a 30 second shower here with a couple rumbles and that's it. Look at that line crank over NSW. Another fizzer to add to the list, albeit a mild one. Failwhale fail at life

Anyone know of any pictures of the storms out east today? Have heard of 15mm at/near Lameroo but can't confirm. Pretty bloody lightning active for the temps, more like a wintery setup but with some relatively warm surface temps, proper hybrid coldies.

Received very little from the first lot of convective stuff up here, 1.5mm but some bloody nice coldie structure on a line to the south around midday, some wall clouds and all.

Showers and drizzle now with the SSW flow, into moderate rates at times, 5.5mm with that = 7mm total for this event. Should see a couple more mm tonight as it's still raining.

0.6mm in total in Seaford, rather ordinary, had about 5 or 6 sharp showers but they were very short and moving quickly. Pretty disappointing, garden still needs watering, getting a bit desperate now.

TS cool

another huge anomaly in rainfall, noarlunga aws shows 1.6mm, you
got 0.6mm total for this event and my gauge has 10.2mm in it.
that's just plain crazy crazy. i know it has to be right cos a
lot of the time i stood at the back door and watched water drip
in the gauge and go up with each shower.
oh well, my few square meters of lawn are happy anyway.

i would imagine the ranges would have been just as hit
and miss as anywhere else.
just been having a look back radar and sat archives, it
seems the concentrated convective nature of these cells
meant they were like lasers cutting through the landscape,
what was looking like a mediocre broad area rain event
ended up with the mix of the surface trough as it went
under the upper cold pool and caused atmospheric flocculation
over here and east of the ranges, 50/50 summer and winter
put together and cooked to perfection.

1.8 mm here at home.
BUT
I was down south. Port Elliot to be precise.
Had no rain gauge with me so i hazzard a guess of about 3 - 6 mm grand total down there.
There was intermittent drizzle / mist etc with occasional spotted try hard showers for a lot of the weekend.
Saturday arvo and night there was even some rumbles and booms while i sat in a chair and watched the whole thing whisk away across south and east of GOOLWA.
late saturday night was 3 reasonable showers , enough to make it wet the next morning.
Today ended up being some slight misty drizzle but that was all before i left about 9 am.
driving through one light shower around MOUNT COMPASS on the way home, i was greeted with some sunshine down the WILLUNGA HILL section.
