76mm total here. Lake Glenmaggie spilling at low rate with intention to allow it to be full by the end of the week.

A good purge from all rivers into Gippsland lakes without significant flooding, great event for Gippsland smile

I note that EC thinks that Maffra will get another 55mm+ rain over next Tuesday to Sunday. Most of it due to the NSW ECL that is about to develop and travel S down NSW coast.

Overnight low of 10.8C, reached a top of only 16.4C and that was at midday.

Between about 9:30am and 2:30pm I was down in Dandenong, and it was very wet. Mostly cloudy with frequent, at times heavy showers (I caught a few glimpses of sunshine after lunch btw), and the Dandenong Creek and surrounding wetlands are in flood!! eek

Collected 45.3mm in the 24 hours to 9am here in Belgrave, with another 7.4mm since then; the rain absolutely bucketed down around 30-45 minutes ago!

The last time I recorded a single 24-hours-to-9am rainfall total of 20mm or more is 25.3mm on April 26th btw.

My event total is now 93.8mm, so we've already beaten last December's total of 92.9mm, Only need about another 6mm to hit the 100mm mark for the first time since February! smile

Still lots of showers about the Melbourne area, and hopefully that wrap-around over Tassie will make it north across Bass Strait into Victoria to give us some more rainfall! wink

Currently a rather wintry, un-summery 14C, although the temperature dropped to only about 13C during the last heavy shower we had.

Edit: I forgot to mention that last night's Knox Christmas Carols in Ferntree Gully was among the list of activities to be cancelled, unsurprisingly.

Errr, amendment to my earlier post...

We actually managed to hit 16.6C in the end yesterday here in Belgrave, thanks to late-afternoon/early-evening sunny breaks! smile

A cold, showery night and start to today, dipping to 9.1C. The last time we dropped into single-digits was back on November 10th with a low of 9.0C. And it made it to only 16.8C this arvo, my third consecutive day so far this month with highs below 20C! crazy

Collected an additional 5.2mm of rain during the night, so 12.6mm in the 24 hours to 9am. More showers swept through during the day, depositing another 2.2mm.

Event total is now at 101.2mm! grin

Currently around 15C. Good to see a bit of sunshine, which started breaking through the clouds on my way home from Ringwood after 4pm. smile

Edit: I forgot to mention that I heard reports from a friend that Heatherton Road got completely cut-off by flooding at Dandenong Creek last night! I've seen the creek in flood-mode many times, but the only time I saw Heatherton Road closed by floodwater over the creek was in the days after the February 2011 Storm & Flood Event (including Ex-Cyclone Yasi).

2.4mm further, a lot of which fell in the last hour. Another high of 13.3c, 9 and breezy atm. 50.3mm for the event now. Not sure this is part of "the" event but happy for the extra couple of mm.

Overnight low of 8.7C, currently around 19C and mostly cloudy with sunny breaks.

Collected another 1mm of rain early this morning, so 3.2mm in the 24 hours to 9am, and the event total is now 102.2mm. smile

I saw more flooding along Dandenong Creek while heading down Wellington Road to Clayton last night btw.

Well, with those few little extra drops of rain over the past few days, Kyabram now has a new monthly rainfall record for December. Previous 93.7, now 94.0 and it's only 5 days into the month.

Impact of the next event is presently bringing in south easterly drizzle into Gippsland. Will report total in day to day thread this evening (unless a new thread is started to cover rain over next 7 days?).

For interest, the Avon River at Valencia Creek (N of Maffra) barely rose 200/250mm after the rain.

Major catchment sites for the Avon - Mt WELLINGTON had 126mm, Reeves Knob 135mm.

The rain rate was slow and steady, ground porous enough that very little run off ensued.

As said, perfect rain event for us grin

Yeah interesting event not quite 300mm but a number of 200-250mm falls and 50-100mm around Melb and much of the state east of Echuca Melb

Number of daily and few monthly records set

Also a few all time records set for rainfall.

Close to the Sept 2010 event.

Looks like we move back into heatwaves across much of Aus next week

My post for the past couple of days, including today...

Reached a top of 21.8C here in Belgrave on Tuesday arvo. Breezy, partly cloudy, and humid but otherwise delightfully mild to warm with abundant sunshine. Perfect for spending the afternoon and evening in Hawthorn, Kew, Richmond and the City, with a beautiful sunset on the way home! smile

It looked a little convective towards the north (beyond Mount Disappointment) around sunset as I was passing through Box Hill, most likely in response to the showers and storms earlier in the day over Northern Victoria and into NSW/ACT.


Yesterday (Wednesday December 6th 2017) was even better. It dawned chilly with an overnight low of 12.7C, but after being partly cloudy for much of the day it turned into yet another gloriously fine, mild to warm and mostly sunny afternoon with cooling breezes, with a top of 25.6C. And another magnificent sunset to finish it off while I was down in Ferntree Gully celebrating my birthday with my family! grin


As for today, it dropped to 8.8C this morning and hit 27.3C this afternoon. A hazy, warm, humid, unsettled start to the day with abundant sunshine at first (it felt kinda hot in the Sun, although the winds made conditions feel a little more pleasant).

Cloud increased by lunchtime, and by mid-afternoon the weather rapidly started to deteriorate in response to the approaching cold front and also due to the low pressure trough to the north/northwest.

The pre-frontal low pressure trough managed to deliver a "sting in its tail" to the Melbourne metropolitan area. Convection bubbled away nicely during the afternoon despite the increasing high cloud from the northwest, and by 4:30pm showers and thunderstorms had developed!

It got very dark here in Belgrave just after 4:45pm as a very nasty thunderstorm approached from the direction of the City and took aim straight at us, so yes we scored yet another direct-hit! Infrequent but quite deep rumbling thunder (plus spitting rain and gusty winds) as the cell moved in. The clouds overhead were swirling like crazy. The storm struck at 5pm, bringing with it around 5 minutes of dangerous CG lightning strikes and loud thunderclaps, plus around 20 minutes of heavy rainfall! grin

2.1mm of rain with a peak rainfall rate of 11.9mm/hr from this one feisty little storm cell.

By 5:30pm the storm had gone, but given the weather that's unfolding across Melbourne we've had a few more spits and grumbles of thunder mixed in with persistent heavy rain... and plenty more wet, stormy weather to come this evening! smile

Since the storm passed we've obtained another 1.1mm of rain, but I'm guessing we could easily get between 10-25mm between now and 9am tomorrow.

The temperature was around 21C before the storm, but now it's around 15C and falling.

A few nearby rumbles here and a couple of brief showers at least allowed me to mark a "thunderday" on my records.
...hoping for 10+mm tonight, and for it to befalling at bed time!

Whoa!! The weather out there is insane! =D

No thunder or lightning atm, but here in Belgrave it's dark with absolutely torrential rain! The driveway is turning into a river!

And looks like we're in the firing line for a seriously thorough soaking tonight! Peak rainfall rate is 42.9mm/hr, with 10.5mm in the gauge so, and we could easily double or even triple that amount in coming hours.

A huge area of heavy rain with embedded thunderstorms is erupting across metropolitan Melbourne on radar, so stay safe everyone and watch for flooding.
