Well Bathurst Township got 33 mm over two big storms yesterday evening.

They largely missed the airport (about 6mm only)

I believe the 33 easily - very wet at my place last night - lots of lightning activity as well.

Caused big blackouts in northern parts of Bathurst and well north towards Sofala etc.

Last week the BoM was forecasting falls of up to 25mm for Mon and Tue here, so in my thoughts 3.7mm is a fizzer, I'd have been more than happy to have got what you guys got last month (116mm at Albion Park) why I'd have even taken half of what you got and been glad, all we got for Nov' was 23mm.

True, but 116mm was nearly all the rain we've had in 6 months.

Kino, one has to agree that the last six months have been very dry around the central coastal regions of NSW, in your case (taking Albion Park as a measuring point) you got 209mm, and here (I use Horsely Park, which is my nearest BoM station) we got 171mm, some months we both got 0mm!

My grievance is that the BoM often forecasts rainfall amounts that never eventuate.

Rainfall totals have been disappointing on the coast, especially in light of all the cold gloom we've had to endure, but the tablelands have (at least locally) done well in storms, as Dave says.

Still, I don't the the fat lady (the one in the horned helmet) has yet sung on this. There's still a trough not far off the coast and we still have a Southerly air stream. It's not over until the low moves away South and the high ridges across from the West, probably in about 24 hours.

I'd say it's pretty much over tbh - sw'erlies here already. Suns out....bring on the next event! South Coast getting hammered.

I would agree Kino, SWly winds at the surface and N/NE winds above aren't a good mix.

Looks like there might be a bit of spin just east of Pt Perp?

Might have been even higher this morning as the predicted peak was higher than yesterday as was the observed residual.

Know it's not coastal but Orange has been under a storm for a while today. Missing us here - a bit west of us.

Cell going red near my place and my place is on the edge of it but according to radar under the orange echo. Go you beauty! grin

Edit 2: Should be some very heavy rain at home aa it's now gone red over my area. Shame I'm at work. Arrgh

Hopefully should be some great Falls at home to green things up and provide some soil moisture after after all these light falls recently. grin

Some pretty strong winds around today. 83km/h at Kiama, 82km/h at Albion Park and 69km/h at Bellambi. But yet here it probably has only gusted into the 40's and right now there's just a light breeze!

Was just going to mention that - some decent gusts of freezing cold wind now. Seems low has finally fired right up and hammering the South Coast.

It fascinates me that there's no wind here though, we seem to be protected from S/SW winds majorly but we cop the brunt of westerly winds.

And yes, the showers are going a fair way inland through southern areas now.

It's getting windy and cooler here. A bit of sun makes a big difference. It got to 25 degrees at OH, up to 28 in Penrith.

This 'event' is still happening but seems to have headed West to the Tablelands and East offshore. There's an impressive-looking chain of storms stretching from the Liverpool ranges to Crookwell, with more storms and showers from Yass to Albury.

Strangest radar I have seen for a while, down on south coast still with rain from NE, switches to from east further north, but the major odd one out is the line out on the divide very slowly edging south eastwards. Will it make the coast, doubt it, but I hope so.
