Only 30mm here in the 24 hours to 9am this morning. It looks like we just missed out on some heavy rain - places 2-3km NE of here got double that. Not that I'm worried, we got enough rain last month!

Up to 20mm here since this morning. Just as it was starting to dry out too!! Looks like more to come overnight, can see plenty of moisture streaming down from the gulf feeding into the trough on satpic.

Must say though, as much as I love rain we have probably had enough here for the next few weeks. Weeds growing like mad, driveway a muddy mess, paddocks waterlogged, mongrel dog and cat keep dragging mud into the house!! grin Not gonna complain too much, it sure as hell beats being in drought smile

It's definitely been a damp day. 58.8mm in the 24hrs to 9am here, with most of that falling during the early morning / morning period today. Then since 9am this morning, there's been 65.0mm fall.
It's been thanks to periods of rain with heavy to very heavy showers embedded. We've been just in the right spot to get both the early / morning and the late morning / afternoon wave of heavy stuff. Showers have eased off during the past 90 mins or so, and a short time ago spotted a small bit of blue sky some distance toward the west.

Highest total to 9am this morning on the MNC was 105mm at Comboyne (inland of Port Macquarie), and since 9am on the MNC, Crystal Creek near Bellingen has recorded 166mm (with 101mm in two hours this afternoon).

Yeah it's always a double edged sword these rainy times. I can't believe it when I hear people in town complaining about the rain, lol.
Boss is a bit over it, can't install solar in this weather, lol.
I think today's the beginning of the trailing off for this area for a few days , but tonight will have a few more mm in it I'm thinking.

Bellingen got a further 167mm since 9am this morning til time of writing while Bald Knob got a further 51mm. There were a number of other locations in SE QLD/NE NSW which got an additional 25-50mm on top of what fell yesterday.

Still on track to get windy at times (and staying cool) for the rest of this week into the weekend with the SE'lies, especially near the coastal fringe, islands and exposed ground where winds could get pretty strong. Some showers from time to time as well.

Brisbane was 19.8C by 3:30pm this afternoon while Toowoomba was 16.8C at the time (with feels-like temp of 12C).

Have posted a wind gust map in the day to day thread.

16mm For Coolangatta today, looks like Warwick scored 11mm since 9am. I'm surprised the rain wasn't onshore, it seemed more coming from the west. Onshore trough must of weakened overnight

I'm presuming we will be under a SE stream for quite some time Ken? At least until winter when we start getting the westerlies?

Just wait till winter! poke

Nice rainfall Seabreeze - my station managed 50.5 till 9am yesterday and 50.6 till 9am this morning.

My sisters manual gauge (a few km away) recorded 150mm in total - apparently first checking and emptying it at 6am yesterday morning before work and then again at 7:30 this morning, not your standard 9-9 regime but I guess she isn't really able to stick to that.

Loc: Bellingen NSW 2454
213mm just outside Bellingen in the 24 hours to 9am this morning, with many other totals across the area over 100mm. Localised flooding with some flash flooding in one of the local rivers:



Good to see the BoM note that rise in their STW:

Severe Thunderstorm Warning
for HEAVY RAINFALL
For people in parts of Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast Forecast Districts.

Issued at 4:46 pm Tuesday, 6 March 2018.
Weather Situation:
Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding in the warning area over the next several hours. Locations which may be affected include Coffs Harbour, Woolgoolga, Sawtell, Bellingen, Dorrigo and Glenreagh.
Bellingen (Crytstal Creek) received 101mm rainfall in 2 hour between 02:00pm and 04:00pm. Rapid waterlevel rise has been observed in Never Never Creek.


No flooding in town - has been pretty dry here so the ground would have soaked up a heap. Still some decent rises in the Bellinger. Looks like that is the end of the fun for some time...just a few trade showers over the next few days.

Warwick did reasonably well with 53.6mm over the past 2 days to 9.00am today. My gauge in North Warwick registered 48mm. I think this is the best 2 day rainfall since the end of March last year - almost 12 months. Warwick Eye is our local Rain Accountant so will wait for his confirmation.
