Some superb (and probably well-timed) rain around the State.

Have missed out here - not quite 0.5mm in gauge and looks like that's all there is to be. Literally has not settled the dust.

WATL seems excited for several days out - must peruse the models!

All the excitement seems to come from ECMWF on 11/12 May in eastern Vic. 11 May in Gippsland is 100mm+ But there's no support from other models.

18MM is handy ca grin

ECL perhaps with the S/E airflow ECMWF forecasts ?

ACCESS has a low approaching S/E Aus, be nice to see this reach fruition, unfortunately the WZ ACCESS maps for that period (11/12) don't show much advancement or Northward movement of the low.

Fine, calm, sunny 23C here today.

Playing around with 1T of water on recently planted dusty couch at Royal Maffra this arvo (trying to keep March works alive - too dry to do new work since) - jeez the cut-off low possible for later this coming week (if it comes off) is very much needed in Gippsland.
