Just had 8.2mm in probably as many minutes. Bloody beautiful! Nothing severe just nice heavy rain, just over an inch over the last 2 days should keep everything green till the next trough.

LG glad you say an inch as it is a scale that I learnt that is becoming lost in the new generation of millimetres often misquoted as ml😩
My learnings from SEQ over many decades is inch per week in late spring thru Autumn should keep it green. More greener, and less more yellow ☺️

This 24hr total on Boxing Day was also a record high daily fall for December, and the current monthly total of 355.6mm makes it the second wettest December on record (records since 1939).

Some news / social media stuff locally -

From the NSW SES South West Rocks unit posted yesterday:
"The last four days have been busy at the Unit. Wild electrical storms and torrential rain have caused mayhem. The rain gauge kept running over but by gestimate we have had over 12 inches of rain.
Between trees on cars and caravans, trees on roads, sand bagging galore and flood mitigation it has been rather busy. Congratulations to SES for the wet weather gear supplied.. Thanks to Gladstone and Kempsey for coming over and helping ease the strain.

The upcoming storm event was looking really fantastic for SEQ but it's really started to turn into rubbish over the last couple of days based on the models.

Looks much better for northern parts of SEQ tbh. I know I'm getting kinda excited for Sunday & Monday, they both look very nice for up here.

Some of the tree damage in Lyra a bit south of Stanthorpe after Monday night's storms - the side of the highway was littered with big trees that had shed large branches and even snapped in half and completely uprooted.

Looks similar to the road from Kumbia to Kingaroy Ken. Trees down everwhere, a house missing the front patio and roof, shed roofs missing and treed crops stripped of all their leaves on one side. Really glad it missed us and feel bad for those it hit.

Ken, this is also similar to Beerwah - Landsborough aftermath a couple of weeks ago. How does a storm completely strip the bark of a 25m gum tree? Heat and humidity are very high so could be some more equalisation of the atmosphere on the way. Hang on to your hats.

Hope you enjoyed your Christmas here. smile


I always enjoy getting home grin

My digital rain gauge at Mum and Dads place which is a couple of km away recorded 202mm.

A small break down though from my sisters place and me checking the rain gauge whenever there was a break in the rain - from 10:30am on the 26th till 12:20pm (so hour and 50 mins) we got 102mm, we then got 30.5mm from then until 4:55pm, a further 60mm from then until 1:25am though nearly all of that fell in a storm after midnight - I then gave up and went to bed checking the gauge again at 8:10am for a further 50mm - ended up with 242.5mm in total.

A couple of videos I took from the car (was too lazy to walk out in the rain and get drenched haha.

Nice work! Certainly was plenty of runoff happening from the intense rain. Thanks for taking the effort of going out into it. And to think there was no STW issued for that storm (or any other places on the MNC which also experienced those rainrates above the severe threshold during that late morning / afternoon). Don't like to criticise BOM, but that wasn't their finest day.

I have to say, NSW have always been absolutely atrocious with their warnings compared to their QLD and VIC counterparts. Warnings being issued way too late, canceled way too late, winds and rainfall way off target, forecasts not manually edited enough, etc.

Yep, unfortunately always the case for SWR, it's only a small town but it just seems stupid that places like yarrowitch west of Kempsey are consistantly included on STWs when it has about 3 people and the rest of the population are cows yet SWR with a usual population of over 5000 and over the holidays easily double that due to tourism, are never included on the warnings.

Another issue is that Grafton radar coverage of the area is attrocious, you could have a mega deluge there and Grafton will at times show no signs of rain, has been like it since I was a kid.
