Doesn't seem to have been mentioned elsewhere in this thread - Southwell Park, in the inner north of Canberra, picked up 124mm in 6 hours either side of 9am (have seen media reports of 60mm in an hour but haven't been able to confirm these). Off the top of my head I think you'd have to go back to at least the early 1990s for an event of comparable intensity in Canberra, perhaps even the infamous 1971 Woden storm.

I remember when I was at the ANU there was a similar rain event 1990 or 91? Flooding across north and ANU fields.

Been showers all night here and still more on the radar.

Just checked it was March 1989 I think.

March 1989 had similar 24-hour totals (and bigger daily ones because it didn't straddle the 9am cutoff like yesterday's did), but not the same peak intensity.

Wet and miserable. Lovely. Various intensity rain throughout the night. Still comin down. Gosford over to Mangrove Mt have done very well. Not dry breaking by any means in the upper Hunter but this event will be causing a lot of joy. And how good will some follow up rains be. Lets hope so

Heavy rain falling in Singo right now.
Good soaking rain, over 40mm so far from this "event", and over 25mm so far at home in Maito.

I just pulled up a weed (one of those cursed farmers friends) and despite the 45mm of rain we have had so far from this event, the ground is still parched at about 35mm below the surface.

What we need is about 150mm just to make up for all these months of below average rain, this event is only a start towards the relief we all need along this part of the coast.

50mm of rain here from this one so far! So nice to have that steady soaking rain.

Still coming down at a moderate rate here in Penrith so there could be a few mm left in it as well.

84 mm so far here for the event - amazing - and still light rain streaming down from NNW - what is causing this stream/plume?

Also, been sitting on 11 deg since early morning - ahhhhh.

Finally!!

Around 34 or so mm here, started at around 11 am and then various showers as the day wore on.

A couple of bits of thunder from time to time but not much.

Started up again overnight about 3 am with light precip. We've had some quite dense sort of very heavy drizzle showers over the last hour or so.

That's great news DaveM. So often you guys miss out by such a small margin on decent rain. This should see us right through much of Autumn. I note EC has another decent rain event progged for next week as well so fingers crossed we get a follow up event as well.

61.5mm has fallen since around 3:00PM yesterday, and is continuing to accumulate. Like others have said, it looks like the end is in sight, but it was a pleasure to get cool weather with some rain. I'm looking forward to winter!

Cheers DG

Yes hopeful of something again in the not too distant future.

Get some growth happening out here before nights cool off too much. smile

Some trees out here now are rapidly throwing off leaves and turning colours.

One deciduous in my yard is well into it's yellow phase and throwing leaves rapidly.

The official reading for town has come in at 19mm which is much less than my side of town, the airport had about 35mm which is a number of km on the eastern side of town.

And yes Saturday night for us was WELL above average temp.

Hopefully we will struggle to have nights above 15 from now on or at least after this coming week.

Meanwhile Yass recorded a healthy 121mm. Does anyone know if that is a record?

Some totals across Sydney since 9:00 yesterday, mostly after about 2:00PM (millimetres):

Code:
Sydney OH:      71
Chatswood:      73
Sydney Ol Park: 82
Bankstown:      44
Penrith:        55
Campbelltown:   34

Woy Woy (Central Coast) picked up 104mm to 9:00AM.

Drizzle and light rain are still falling, although the main event seems to have passed.

EDIT: the temperature range at OH yesterday was all of 22.0 to 22.1. The change arrived around dawn and it steadily cooled from then. It's now a fairly chilly 18+/- across Sydney.

Still dripping away here. Lake invisible. This rain has exceeded expectations. Gringo should be up to his knees in delicious mud by now.


Fantastic you got some H2O Dave.
