Looks promising for us. Not so much for the ville. But thats just the norm for you giuys. We need a cyclone for youse to have any decent rain.

A bit more like genuine summer weather now: Coastal ridge has broken down, temperature and dew point up. Let's see if any decent convection is forthcoming...

24mm at Castle Mayhem (My house) at Rasmussen. Lovely cracks of thunder and lightning as well. Wife has already started the aircons because it's so humid. Can't say I disagree with her.
