One of a few forums to be created in a decent week of weather once again.

Tuesday we have a good ol classic NW cloud band to stretch over the state to deliver widespread falls of 10-20mm across the southern agricultural areas with the farming areas on the Eyre to see 10-30mm all thanks to a broad trough to stretch right across the state.

Adelaide itself to see 8-20mm according to the BoM and only more rain to follow with heavier falls on Thursday but will be in more detail Tuesday night all thanks to another series of fronts.

Well done SC - we watch these threads like Hawks, ....being next cab off the rank! Great late winter for SA, hopefully results in a huge grain crop, so important for all of us in Aus!.

....over our way (N Gippsland, Vic) - we are finally starting to accumulate modest rain totals to shrug of a significant early winter drought.

Looks like a glitch in the radar... next frame shows zero rainfall. frown

6mm here to 9am, just spits and spats since then, even though according to the radar we should have been getting rather wet.

15mm in Clare and coming down nicely! Should end up with our best total in at least 4 months by the time this rain band is done.

Yes, getting towards some nice flooding potential for the Onka if we get a big event in the next month or so, perhaps even pushing some higher levels with the fronts to come! Upstream of there still rising fast.

Still out... that's rather disappointing.

Pushing towards 20mm here with another heavy band of rain on its way... if we're lucky, we could finish out with an inch of rain from this. smile

Interesting read on "rings" "banding" in doppler radar images:
http://www.lakeeriewx.com/CaseStudies/CaribouRadar/ConcentricRadarRings.html

Based on that read and the way Buckland Park failed I'd hazard the guess its' mechanism for aiming the radar up broke.

Very pleased to see 28mm in the gauge in total from the raindband. Nothing heavy, just a good old fashioned soaking rain!

Should add that puts us dead on our average rainfall for August smile

Another 15.3mm in the gauge as at 7am this morning brings the rainband total to 19.8mm as at 7am.

Yesterday was a good old fashioned winter rain which I remember from the late 1960's & 1970's. Sadly they are few and far between these days.

Well the SE did pretty much benefit from this NW Cloud band event with a drenching and a half but now it would be nice if Mother Nature could kindly drag old man winter kicking and screaming into hibernation so we can have a sunny spring full of potential storms and so on
