6.6mm to 9am yest and then 2.6mm to 9am this morning and so far a further 0.8mm since 9am...been pretty poor again today down here which is unusual for a westerly flow, hoping it comes back in spades tomorrow evening with the best front.

TS cool

Was just looking at the Doppler wind map for SA and noticed some red in amongst the dark blue over near Yorke Peninsula.

Is this red an anomaly or real? If real what is causing this?

That is aliased winds, meaning the scale has gone past the 90km/hr so it populated the opposite colours inside the darkest blue (and vice versa away from radar) to show winds over 90km/hr.

The way the media is beating up this cold front you'd think we were on a cyclone warning.

Front nearly here and developing nicely from the typical corridor off northern y.p and sliding a bit more than down south as well. Hopefully don't thread the needle and see some torrential rain.

I got absolutely soaked around 6pm in Modbury, even with an umbrella.
It came in sideways, wet pants and shoes.

Damn that was savage. 5mm in 2, at most 3 minutes and some solid blasts of wind. Been a long time since a front like that.

Seems to be setting up some stream showers through that wsw corridor between Y.P. and K.I. so usual wet spots in hills will get some more falls tonight. Turns slightly more sw overnight so spreading a touch more north.

Heaps of moisture pouring in across e.p. towards here at a perfect angle to these hills, should be a nice wet night smile Not all that common to see frequent orographic falls from that direction, e.p. usually shadows.

I was driving down Grange road when the front hit. Heavy rain & wind, visibility reduced but not as bad as Darwin on 29 Jan this year!

Collected another 5.6mm to bring the total to 20.6mm. Inching towards the inch, pun intended!

15mm overnight in Clare, makes 20mm for the event. Still more to come in SSW streams. (and some very cold air!!) Spring gully has had 24.4mm.

Highest event/s total I can find for now is 105.8mm at Lenswood, and 98.8mm at crafers...woodhouse may be higher.

EC has another 15-20mm for the these areas in the next 3 days.
