Apols if this rambles a bit:-

Mild morning, calm in town, 16mm for the entire event and bgr all forecast today -->.

3mm recorded at E/Sale after midnight - its gone East where if one listened to the media, armageddon was about to descend last night. Media still reporting forecast 100-150mm in "Gippsland", I'd like to back the other horse on that one grin

Rain Obs of 10mm@Orbost, 9mm@Mallacoota, 52mm@Omeo was a good fall, Combienbar 33.4mm also handy, but won't bring any smiles to Orbost or CannR farmers.

Hoping East Gippsland receives some worthwhile falls at some stage at a manageable rate/hr, I can't remember seeing it so dry around Orbost (Snowy River flats) and Cann River, (Orbost driest year in 90+yrs)

The ECL looks to have wandered off E on radar and satellite, ACCESS has rainfall clearing slowly in E.Gipp. as the ECL moves N. See what happens !!

OUR Mt. Wellington has had modest falls from what I can see, most recent rainfalls obs. not posted yet. Mt Buller didn't get a lot apparently so as an indicator, MtW is in the same boat.

No flooding in the Avon, that's good.

Nice summary for this area Samboz.Thanks.

26mm to 0900 including the "4 or so" earlier reported.Is actually a very nice fall. Doesn't really look like we've had much rain which indicates how dry it has been and how much has been directly soaked up. Strong consistent wind o/night - now only light breeze, full cloud.

After the report from Wednesday nights arrival of the cool air we have had 47.0mm most of which fell yesterday. Been very windy since yesterday, and still is. Yesterday max was 9.2c, already up to 9.6c with some sun out. Hoping for some showers this arvo but if not mizzle should redevelop up here overnight I think.

56.0mm for this event and now up to 75.9mm for May so far.

Nice total there Ruckle.28mm here at home in Bayles which is ok but we were hoping for a good fall up at our property just out of Lakes but its looking like that area got only about 20-25mm. The computer models were wrong once again. I said to a friend who lives at Perry Bridge that we would be lucky to get 50mm when up to 130mm was first mentioned in the forecast for East Gippy. Sadly we didn't even get that. I wonder how accurately the weather was forecast before they started relying on computers but then again they only mentioned about 3 days worth of weather back then. Once again feeling ripped off and kinda disappointed with a system that was talked up once again and failed to deliver the big falls. Hopefully some follow up rain will come in the next couple of weeks to help get / keep some moisture in the ground.

Thanks smile

To update some rainfall for W&S GIPPS & E.GIPPS, some did OK, nice to see -

MT WELLINGTON 64MM
REEVES KNOB 94MM
DARGO 50MM
WONNANGATTA RIVER @ WATERFORD (barely 10km South of Dargo) 67MM
DINNER PLAIN 68MM
OMEO 56MM

Some that really needed rain -

ORBOST 10.8MM (After the forecasts and media hype, they'd be feeling gutted ! )
COMBIENBAR AWS * 43M & CABBAGE TREE 27MM Nearest I can find close to CANN RIVER

Appears that coastal areas rec'd less rain than the higher elevations.

Thanks for those obs samboz👍

We finished with a handy 21mm for this event.
Thought we may have received a little more
But it was very welcome fall.
It's taken away any warmth that was left and
That winter chilled air has moved in up here!

The odd misty shower here today took us to 18.5mm for the event. After 5mm total for last month, I found myself getting excited when I could spot puddles on the way home from work yesterday smile

Found 0.25mm unexpectedly in the gauge today, must have been a last drizzle patch later last evening.

Samboz - you let me off way to easy for that slab reference I made for Friday nights rain for Sale! Definitely a gentleman!

Sorry Samboz, taking early retirement tomorrow (Hazelwood worker transition scheme), just cant afford it on my pension rate. Mind you, if you were to slip a slab over to Maffra as a retirement gift - (chilled, Great Northern cans), .....I wouldnt be above accepting such a generous gesture.

Cool cloudy 17C here today, baro dropping to 1023 hPa - hopefully a bit of coastal grazing rain on the roof sometime tonight?

Getting pressure from mates about taking up bike riding too. But also aware
about what urangutans posteriors look like!
