Radar looks impressive for CT. I'm in Sydney but my dad just texted me & says heavy rain & thunder & they've lost power.

radar showing a northerly flow being introduced too, hopefully this will trigger it to go off locally, storms stopping 10km to our west. lots of thunder and lightning too. great show.

if last nights conditions cant deliver god knows what will, bar a cyclone. perfect conditions and we get 8mm.
YAY!

the wind flow changed about 15-20km west of us, meaning all the storms coming from inland changed direction and went north before they got to us. then the northerly flow was just off from missing us too around midnight. Hence why areas to our west and north west did better.
Perfect set up and again we get screwed over, there is always something, just wanted a massive wet night mad

if you move the mouse over the alert station you can see the names. the catchment area runs from Calcium to Woodstock to Nettlefield then down to the dam wall obviously.
