that would be annoying Ruckle, that normally happpens in shepparton when the hail guns go off, although we have been lucky this month with a 11 mm down pour and a 9mm down pour tonight so far, nothing amassing compared to other places up north like coffs harbour incredible stuff. fingers crossed for later for mor action

Mt Hotham A/Port, 16mm in 20 minutes, that'd be OK here -----

Very exciting here this morning, the bottom of the gauge got wet enough to turn the dust in the bottom to mud, as usual the Usurpers@RoyalMaffraGolfCourse.com.au robbed us off the showers passing thru'.......typical..... grin

Looks like the storm to the NE of the CBD of Melbourne is running out of steam... cloud top temps decreasing, and slowing down due to the GDR. Bugger. Hope tomorrow goes off, the rain is desperately needed now. Apparently 50 odd mm of rain in Yea in quick time with flash flooding.

Yup can finally see the odd flash! smile

Shame it's not as frequent as it was before on radar. Only saw 2 flashes in about 5 minutes of staring North, but the city lights may be washing out some of the ones at the back of the storm.

Loc: Melbourne (Belgrave); Corryong...
Hi all! Reached a hot, sweaty 31.5C here in Belgrave today. It felt like a steam bath while I was at work in Boronia, but thank goodness for air conditioning, despite those insane dew points! smile

We had a couple of hours of rain this morning, at times heavy. Collected 1.1mm here at home as the rainband swept through.

The skies began clearing towards midday, with convective towers flaring as the afternoon progressed. The first storms I saw were off to the west when I knocked off around 3:45pm, over the Melton/Baccus Marsh region. But a few more cells were towering over the Yarra Ranges; the tops of these cells were just visible over the ridge of Mount Dandenong from my workplace! smile

During the 45 minute drive home, the storm cells over Melbourne's west matured and then eventually died. Meanwhile, three cells were in various stages of their life cycle to the northeast: one in the middle was developing, one to the right was decaying, and one to the left was hitting maturity. smile

Around 5:30pm, my focused turned to the line of storms approaching from the north. Lots of huge cumulonimbus erupting all along the northern horizon as it moved towards Melbourne. The anvil looked gorgeous at sunset, around 7:30pm, by which time the cells within the storm front that were to my due north were over Kinglake, and looking intense on radar! smile

By nightfall we had lightning flashes to our north, starting at 8pm! Our first distant rumble of thunder followed at 8:22pm!! grin

Then we had nothing but darkness and silence that lasted for what felt an eternity. I felt the show was over already. frown

But around 10 minutes later, the thunder and lightning started up again, lasting for a good 45 minutes as the storm edged southwards! At the peak of the display, the lightning was occurring on average about once or twice a minute. It was mostly sheet flashes, and generally very faint, but at 8:57pm I saw two potentially dangerous CG lightning strikes (most likely in the direction of Mount Dandenong), and I caught them on camera! Yeah baby!! =D

The thunder sounded like distant earthquake tremors btw. smile

We had a little bit of rain at about 9:30pm as the storm's leading edge moved in, but the storm quickly dissolved and soon vanished completely. frown

A calm, humid night outside, currently around 22C. Next wave of heavy rain and storms brewing over the Northern Plains and should hopefully reach us overnight. Really need a thorough soaking, or else we risk ending March with barely 5-10mm of rain. frown

Great stuff Alexia. Only 3.6mm further here in my portion of Woodend since yesterday morning so event total 5.0mm which lags behind nearby locales quite significantly. The storm in the evening was so close with its heavy core but we only got a few drops and most of the arvo I was on the photogenic but dry side of storms. Still got today and tomorrow to play out yet. Low cloud ceiling with cirro and altocumulus above it in the breaks and 18.5/17.5 with ENE breeze so anything possible still.

SW corner of the state about to be very wet.

Very nice Alexia and still warm enough to get some grass growing before Winter, a perfect Autumn Break in the circumstances.

So very grey, but very dry (considering the forecast) in the metro area. What's everyone's thoughts and feelings about development this afternoon.

There is weather still developing up North and also now some nice looking storms on the VIC / SA Border heading East.

Loaded atmosphere, some pretty heavy falls if you are right under a cell. In addition to the deluge happening in the SW atm general lift producing stuff and possibly a line of convergence forming where the low circulation hits the south bound clouds?Roughly Swan Hill to Ballarat?

28 mm overnight (by the local AWS) - most confined to one downpour after midnight. Sat outside for half an hour watching the storm approach but just couldn't stay awake to watch it roll in. Hit the sack and then BOOM - of course, but I couldn't drag myself out of bed to enjoy. Yet to check my home gauge to see what we got compared to the AWS,
