I'm going to keep the weekends one separate as it is a completely separate system.

Finally some good rains are on the way with the coastal areas benefiting the best of totals but inland it reduces so our farmers wont get as much as forecasted for the coast but should see 10-20mm location depending.

A trough ahead of a cold front with a cold pool behind will bring north to north-westerly winds at 20-40km/h to the central areas with up to 50km/h on the EP and West coast with gusts to 85km/h likely as of late Sunday and should be felt in the Central districts by early morning. The front will move through around sunrise then to leave the cold pool behind where there will be some heavy showers with some possible hail and I'll also add possible thunder associated with hail showers.

After this first system, the state will receive a series of fronts throughout the week bringing showers and west to northwesterly winds with it.

EC gives the highest rainfall for Adelaide at 105mm by Sunday
GFS - up to 60mm
OCF - 38mm Kent Town

BOM going 10-30mm across central areas, local falls of 30-60mm in the Mt Lofty Ranges

I myself will go 25-40mm for my place. But finally some interesting weather to come over the next week.

Yer I think the charts forgot about orographic lift playing a part in this leading to less rainfall, very rare Adelaide would get more than Lofty

Heavy rain!! here for the first time this winter with howling wind, it's been too long!

The lee waves off the Mount Lofty Ranges today in this strong westerly flow have been impressive. Earlier today was getting to that point where branches can start falling, 83km max gust at Snowtown.

Presuming the cold air pushing up isn't cold enough for any dusting to occur. Snow level in vic seems to be +1000, so i guess too high

I wish Mt Lofty was more lofty, another 2km or so would suffice.

Main band of showers going to the south unfort, just leaving the scraps for us atm. Need the stream to ten more from the SW then we'll cop it. Doesn't look like happening at this stage 😖

I'd be concentrating on Friday now, looking very wet indeed!

SEVERE WEATHER WARNING

for HEAVY RAINFALL

For people in the
Adelaide Metropolitan and
Mount Lofty Ranges districts.

Issued at 1:37 pm Tuesday, 4 July 2017.
A moist and unstable westerly air stream presently over southern parts of the State is resulting in extensive shower activity with isolated thunderstorms.
Shower activity is expected to increase in intensity over the warning area this afternoon and evening then persist into the early hours of Wednesday morning. Periods of heavy rainfall in the warning area during this time may lead to a localised flash flooding threat, particularly about the Mount Lofty Ranges.

Some nice convergence along what looks to be a sliding trough of sorts? just south of Adelaide. Can see it well on GFS progs remaining near stationary as such pushing a westerly belt of showers into KI and across into the southern hills in a rather unstable atmosphere for much of the evening into tomorrow. I'd actually be rather excited if I lived in the hills especially through say the Fleurieu Peninsula region towards Mount Lofty, this could be a big night!

If you loop the visible satellite you can see this area of convergence very clearly, gradually tracking northwards. I'd expect some local 50mm+ falls again by 9am provided the orographics get going and it doesn't remain too convective, would like it to become more of a band of rain.

Most models don't give my area too much but gfs keen on an inch with heavy showers spreading further north than other models, see how we go. 8.5mm overnight up here.

That 51mm to 9am is impressive at Woodhouse, orographic forcing was absolutely solid last night.

Zero chance of snow. Quite a warm system for winter overall.

Yer Markus was about to post just on that! models been showing it for a few days and was wondering why some had such extraordinary high falls for a cold air like event but the persistent and slow moving convergence between southerlies south of the trough and NW flow to the N of the trough combined with the unstable atmosphere from the cooling as the upper low moves in from the west tonight will promote an environment conducive to constant renewed convective growth, training showers and heavy falls - hence the flooding warning from earlier. Unstable enough for a thunderstorm or two in that area chiefly south of about Noarlunga and small hail as the coldest air moves in. Expect sudden cores forming out of 'thin air' so to speak combined with training heavier convective bands. 70-80mm to 9am in some places wouldn't surrpise in the slightest, espec over the Central/western fleurieu with that extra orographic lift.

TS cool

Yup, even BoM going for 50-100mm by Friday night! I think if it juts north and gets a good angle on the Mount Lofty region we could see that 80mm! Bonus is this generally westerly stream will keep the totals ticking over for many days after this smile

The BoM isn't "going on about 100mm and flooding". Their 4 day rainfall forecast is for 50-100mm (for the hills only), and the warning is for possible localised flash flooding...which is justified given the convective nature of the rainfall expected.

Parawa about to cop it! There's a weird area right over the location where the radar isn't showing echoes...I'm wondering if they manually reduced a permanent echo (the topography perhaps) but somehow screwed it up during the upgrade...I've never really noticed anything like it before.

Satellite showing broad areas of convection forming, looking good!

Radar looking insane Markus,that convection over Yorkes went up in one or two frames, very volatile.

Great pick up with Parawa and radar, a definite hole since the upgrade that's for sure.

Just arrived home after 12 days in Adelaide, rain gauge had 46mm in it tonight and was still raining, according to neighbour 18mm was from late last week , the rest (28mm) is from this event... by far the best rain for this year, and now the crops will all germinate after a near record dry start to this season ... hope the spring is kind!

Bloody awesome to hear at least the southern section of E.P. has finally had good rainfall.

Seems we had the opposite problem to what I thought last night, looks as though we had the convection but nowhere near close enough to Adelaide for the heavy falls. The plumes were blowing back over the top of themselves from the NW and choking the slow moving lines, they kept on dying without ever getting much distance and the remnants were mostly light without enough force in the winds to get the orographics going in the hills, ah well! That 24mm in 30 minutes was impressive at Neptune Island.

8mm at home, for 16.5mm total, best fall in ages so I'm happy, Watervale south of here scored nicely with 18mm to 9am. smile

Eevo have you got a blow up raft? Don't get excited I said raft... Most of the rain will fall tomorrow and Saturday, will be some beasty showers about once again, tending to bands of rain, take a seat and enjoy the dampness everyone grin

BTW, Where the hell is TH??? Water falling from the sky and he's out of action, must be crook the poor bugger frown...

"Cumulative rainfall totals until midnight Monday are expected to be less than 2 mm, increasing to 2 to 10 mm about the northern agricultural area, 10 to 30 mm about the southern agricultural area and 30 to 70 mm about the Mount Lofty Ranges"

I'd also be watching this approaching band from the NW, I expect it will intensify as it approaches with a few bolts not out the question..

Certainly a lot of instability around, mainly south and west of us currently, but will spread east tonight...

on facebook, reports of tornado forming about 5pm


Cant believe it...! Was at the intersection of bridge rd / montague rd looking south when i spotted this classic funnel cloud forming, tried to get few shots with my phone through front windscreen while stuck in traffic. Funnel was smooth with a classic s shape. Did anyone else see it, around 5 pm this evening...

Eevo have you got a blow up raft? Don't get excited I said raft... Most of the rain will fall tomorrow and Saturday, will be some beasty showers about once again, tending to bands of rain, take a seat and enjoy the dampness everyone grin

Saw the tops of a cauliflower being illuminated far, far to my south on my way home yesterday from Kilburn. Only saw it once though.

Another 3.4mm to 7am this morning brings the weeks total to 18.4mm.

Funnily enough was directly under the second cell and caught the edge of another moments before it, happen to be staying at a mates just NE of the city. The first hail shower didn't last long but the second belted down with hail and rain for a solid couple of minutes I reckon. Was early as though so didn't bother getting up for a look, but it was very loud!

Total of 43.6mm for the week, happy about that. Now need some sunny days to mow the lawn and do some more spraying.

Pretty happy with my 25-40mm forecast for my area, I did say elsewhere 30-50mm across the Adelaide Area.
