I don't think it was expected that southern areas would do so well.

Forecast was 25-45mm here today. We have had 45.6mm in total since 4:30am and there's still a lot more coming.

Canberra had 15-25mm forecasted, 65.6mm was the result for today (doesn't look like there will be any more).

Moss Vale has had 69.6mm and counting.

Maybe Canberra was on the edge of the expected big totals, but GFS has been progging 75mm+ for south coast + Illawarra, so I dont see any surprises there unless you get 150mm+ .

As for the Hunter...The upper Hunter is collecting now. I think a storm for us here would be bonus. The real event in this area wont be properly getting going till 8pm tonight and then overnight.

A nice 25mm storm to get us started shortly would be awesome though.

NO rain yet, before 3pm.
Temp has dropped though to less than 24C, so that is one good thing so far.
Rain can't be too far way now, surely.

Lightening up here, and back to a drizzle, only 5.5mm so far, not looking good.

Very light rain at the moment. Temp as dropped down to 19.7 degrees from a high of 27.7. The proper rain is just about to hit my location, so I'll report back with the totals later tonight. grin

Constant drizzle here. My unfavourite. Might get some rumbles soon. Reminds me of those lazy football watching Sunday afternoons in winter with a mug of hot chocolate. (minus the cold of course).

Is it super drizzle. A cross between a fog and a extremely fine drizzle at the moment. Not really falling. More like blanketing. Like being licked on the face by a pooch. A slobber. A heavy salivation at smelling a roast. An opaque ooze.
I live metres from the lake and can hardly see where it begins.

Amazing the temperature differences around the place atm, everywhere south of me is around the 18-20c mark and places to my north still in the high 20s.

Have registered 0.5mm so far, rain is starting to get heavier now.
Temp 23.8c and falling.

The basin doesn't seem to be getting the forecast rain totals (yet), although BOM still forecasting 15-25 mm's for tomorrow.
Penrith was forecast to get 30-50 mm's today, and has so far received just 9.6 mm's.

Temp has dropped to 18.2 here now and steady rain is falling, but totals are building ever so slowly.

If I didn't know about the impressive totals further South, I might be saying maybe 5 is the new 10 or 20 as far as millimetres of rainfall go. But the Sydney radar has filled up nicely now, it looked a bit patchy last time I checked. Nothing spectacular but maybe a slow, steady buildup is about to start.

For the first time today I can now actually hear the rain falling from indoors.

Such a wonderful sound. I'm living for this right now. What a perfect welcome home from holidays kind of day. Perfect excuse for me to try my duty-free Bacardi grin

Keep it coming, Huey! grin
