Moderate to heavy rain here and the wind has picked up in the good old ECL style system atm. great to hear and see it again and hopefully the start to a good event.


Good to see that parts of the west of the state got a decent drop yesterday in some places too, Broken Hill had evidence of flash flood with debris everywhere and a trampoline thrown on the side of the road from which I guess was straight line winds from the storm their yesterday arvo and it was even still rain with the odd bit of lightning in Dubbo as well.

So overnight we added 32.5mm to the 31mm we had up until 2200 last night. That's 63.5mm for this event, our best falls for almost 15 months!

According to the radar this morning it looks like the big falls are past, and all we'll get today is light showers, lets see what eventuates.

53mm here, which is 80% of our Oct rainfall - very happy given we only had 20-40 forecast. Hopefully now further top ups. So much for warmer drier 😀

46.2mm here since 9am yesterday which is a bit more than Obs Hill yet a bit less than Chatswood. Peaked out at 111.8mm/h rain rate as that rain train passed through last night.

Pretty sure that the escarpment would have at least got 75mm overnight, possibly more between Wollongong and Sydney.

Seems that the best station in Sydney was Olympic Park, with 77.2mm to 9am. Heavy rain around midnight but then just steady accumulation since then.

Looking ahead the forecast calls for more rain. Loving it

No one can really say that they were expecting a wetter than average month arriving considering the developing El Nino and the IOD at such a positive stage, when the models and predictions were run.

Although That rapid cooling of the West Indian Ocean I believe fed the Western NSW storms, according to the TPW map. But very grateful for the large volume of rain that arrived given that I'm not right on the coast with me being 55.1mm (94% of average this month). Hopefully the next even firms and the cold pool moves in from a more westerly direction to provide some follow up rainfall. But I feel this should be an extended thread at least another 10-12 days of weather up next.

Looking quite promising, with a cyclonic swirl around Walgett, and showers advancing on us from both south-east and north-west.

Hope you get the rain you need Surly B.

-----

Nearby Chatswood has an event total of 61 mm so far, most of which fell between about 11:00PM last night and dawn this morning. There's been persistent, wind-blown light rain since I got up, adding up to a few millimetres.

Haven't see this for a while: Lane Cove Weir after 60-70 mm over the catchment in the preceding 36 hours or so:



Water was trickling over the weir after 10 mm of rain last week, but this is the first time I've seen a full on flow like this in some months.

Here's Riverside Falls this morning:

If OH doesn't get above its current maximum of 15.6 today marks the coldest October day in 9 years. Falls have not been quite so spectacular today, with a range of 0 at Badgerys Creek all the way up to 12.2mm at Terry Hills for the metro. Looks like some light showers coming with a SE wind, and the heavy stuff about 100km off to sea.

Hasn’t really stopped raining today. Looks like the low has stalled off Forster.

Radar doesnt show it but its quite heavy atm, that soaking dense sort of rain. You walk out in it and your wet through in ten seconds. Ps havent had to do 'heavy form' for a while now Ed G.

After light but persistent showers all day, the rain rate really picked up from around 4:00PM. Sydney OH had about 10 mm in an hour, it would have been about the same here.

Chatswood has had 17 mm since 9:00 for an event total so far of 76 mm.

It does look like most of the rain is now coastal.

This cool, wet pattern looks set to dominate to the end of the model runs (10-14 days).
