This is a new event, so might as well delineate the topic from the last one.

some light shower activity here at the moment, only been going a few minutes.

Unfortunately Bx is near the northern end of this huge cloud clump. We won't get much but areas further south may do better. Orange will get another nice little drop too.

Models still varying a bit over what, where, when etc for the next few days.

It looks fairly widespread in general. Some places may end up with 30 or 40mm by Sunday but others may be a lot less.

At least it seems mainly centred west of the GDR at the moment. give the coasties a bit of respite. smile

The sound of the now heavier rain - lovely to these ears smile

Already there have been some decent rain in the 15-50mm range overnight across the NW and CW slopes/plains with this event. Further falls should cement this as a genuine autumn break for many areas, extending eastwards onto the Tablelands. Steady light to moderate rain has fallen here for the past couple of hours.

Still waiting for my Autumn break here smile

Hopefully we will actually see some pleasant rain over the next few days smile

A lot of places certainly still need it. EG we have had only about 60mm for the full year so far. Plenty other places similar or worse than here.

Looks like you should be getting a bit of light rain now DaveM just going off the Wollongong Radar but yes a very dry start of the year for the CT's. Up until the first week of March it was a very dry start for most of the SE of NSW in general though.

Heres hoping we see a few fronts through April/May to clear this humidity, deliver some rain to the CT's and maybe even spin up the odd ECL or three!

Rain here yet though Bellambi has picked up a quick 3mm, so these showers are clearly heavy, despite the radar suggesting that they're light.

That rainy mass is heading in this direction but I don't imagine there should be heaps of rain here since it's coming from the NW. But look at those falls to the west, Orange 20mm, Cowra 19mm, Parkes 24mm etc. You should get 10mm or so I would think Dave, judging by the falls further west.

Just been hammered by really heavy rain - you ripper!!! grin

A number of rumbles as it passed through.

Backing off again at the moment but great for about 15 minutes. grin

Airport says 5mm but I suspect actually about 7 now.

Yes, sneaky storm heading my way. It may die out but I can smell rain in the air. It's also warm and humid enough for one. Can hear a few rumbles already.

I see that Bathurst Airport at 25.6mm (just over an inch in the old money) has overtaken Orange Airport at 21.4.

It's been humid and mostly cloudy here, with a few sunny breaks. No measurable rain at OH rain for nearly 48 hours, although we might get something later. Wyong is about to be hit by a red core.

EDIT: Severe thunderstorm warning has been extended to cover all of the Central Tablelands, all of the Central Westandand Hunter plus inland parts of the Metro, Illawarra and South Coast.

Had a heavy shower this morning, but like yesterday it all seems to be going around us.
