40mm in total for the event here, best part is it is slow soaking rain, best thing for gardens and such.

Still have a drizzle here at the moment but the radar seems to be clearing north of us now. Will be interesting to see how things go tomorrow.

According to BoM 88mm recorded yesterday for Buderim.

I was just even happy with 2mm due to the overcast cool day earlier, overall we ended up with 44mm in total.

By the way those rain observations at the Bom site today for our area are totally wrong! They say 0 rain in their readings! ???

Another 8mm last night. Total of 19mm of much needed rain! Hopefully we'll get some follow up so when the grass sprouts it will keep growing.

Which data are you referring to explorer? The previous day (1st/2nd Oct) or yesterday/Today (9:00am -9:00am). I couldn't find an AWS for Coolum Chase. I did noticed that during the last round of storms before this event, some of the AWS were not registering, don't know if there was a glitch in receiving data.

Ours is Coolum West (nearest), Yandina Creek is further up I think ... I was looking at the graphic map for rain in the bom site for Qld and for the 24hr (last 24hrs?) showed 0, no red dots ... but when I selected the 'since 9am' all the red dots came up ... looking at wrong perspective I think ... my wrong ... smile ...
Thanks for checking it out ... smile

Not enough for any run off into the dam though, however the trees will be very happy.

No hassles explorer, I have the same thing happen to me with the Brisbane Metro. It used to always register when you used it all the time but now you have reset it.

Plus my mate at Moorina had well over a 100mm from the last storm. He posted a video on Instagram showing all the tanks overflowing and the run off etc, he phoned me because they lost power, and when I checked the amount of rain registered at the AL it only showed 12mm and stayed that way for about 3 hours. He was right under the Black Core and the rain rate on the radar was well over 50mm/hour at one stage. Being on a hill the topography caused the cell to stay put for 2 1/2 hours. The next day the AWS still only showed 64mm, it was wrong as he is about 100 meters from it and it copped the same amount. We constantly calibrate his with the AWS, so this time around something went wrong.

Mate sorry to hear that, what type of snake was it? I thought most animals were immune to snake bites? Or is that spider bites im thinking of?

Looks like the models were accurate with this event, although Brisbane was originally forecasted to have rain periods today when you look at the forecast 2-3 days back. Now its Showers and a chance of a storm.
Speaking of, will these storms form out in the Darling downs area if the cloud breaks up out west? Or are these storms forecast to form along and off the coast?

57.5mm event total out here, tanks half full.
Fantastic. The models & BOM forecast were spot on for us.
Sorry to hear about your cat RWM, usually cats are quick & smart, pretty good avoiding snakes, its dogs that you hear mostly get bitten.
