yes it was a massive boom here Pete!

Rain has really settled in now from the more unusual direction of the NE... Still expecting around the 10mm mark in total, but looking at the satpic we seem to be a good spot atm with the low so wouldnt be surprised to see it more like 15mm by morning.

Certainly heard that here.

no you havent missed anything. As I said in the post, its moving in from the NE - its doing this because of the placement of the low to the north of the city.

A bit of a wet night for most.
Yer, heard the single rumble of thunder as well.
system total now 7.8 mm for me. ( i was expecting more )
Now the wind has picked up a bit.
more showers today i suspect seeing as the low hasn't moved on as yet , it's just east of port augusta atm so were still in the money for showers for this setup.

As expected some nice total overnight with 10-20mm falling and not just across the metro area.

17.8mm here with 90% of that falling in darkness.

I've seen these set-ups so many times before. All it takes is for the dew points to rise with overnight cooling and the lowers getting moist bringing most of the daytime Virga to the ground. It's not rocket science just common sense grin.. The Low position was favorable for us also (as Tim mentioned)

14.6mm until 720am this morning, so in the range of 10-40mm.

Sharyn & I were down at the airport last night watching Emirates 777-300ER departing. It departed at about 1020pm. Just after it increased rate of speed and altitude (not sure whereabouts that may have been but it was before it got to Modbury), there was a flash and about at least 10-15 seconds later a rumble was heard from where we were.

17.6mm to 7am this morning when I left home, prob closer to 18mm as was still raining.

Strong negatively tilted trough friday, powerful dynamic cold front saturday, seconary trough/cold front from cold air frontogenesis on sunday. Brutal period of angry winter action. And I'll be leaving saturday morning. Cold air T possible somewhere on sat with that front....shear profile is very juicy in the lower 100hPa. Enjoy........

TS cool

Another 0.5mm in the gauge this morning, possibly falling between 720am & 9am yesterday? Anyway 15.0mm all up (14.5mm, not 14.6mm yesterday).
