Happy to report first rumble of the season for Maffra, a weak storm passing nearby from the NNW, a little bit of the fringe rain is falling here,but concrete not completely wet yet.

Light rain encountered from Cann R to Orbost on trip back today.

Found 4mm in the gauge and a max temp of 32C from the change yest. and those couple of warm days here.

Thunder recordings spectrum! - we all love our storms. Samboz apparently rides a treadly up to 133km in search of them smile

Thunder Bob - saw the odd puddle on the side of the road out your way, so guess you got that same 4mm?

I see on the radar page that Traralgon picked up 9mm since 9am, decent storm down that way I guess.

Wow.

That weak high-based storm didnt graze by, it turned into a rain event (with the odd weak high based rumble) for 30 minutes. 28mm here! smile .....a brother recorded 30mm only 500M away. Biggest rain from a thunderstorm at Maffra for 15 years.

Sorry for those in this local area, (as most missed out in this severe drought region), ...amazing - by no way expected (would have been happy just to hear a distant rumble).

Did OK in Sale (East side) also P, 32mm including the 1mm paltry input from y'day.

It bucketed down for about an hour.

One of the longest storms remembered for a while.

Mate to yr N/E says 16mm.

Bldy beautiful. BOM E/Sale Obs hadn't caught up 1/4hr ago, still showing 9.2mm, saw 30mm flashed in radar obs earlier.

Spout overflowed,car got a wash, the southbound "blob" from up Sydney way got here. smile

Finished up with 33mm in the gauge, 32mm out of about an hours storm.

Bright sunny day, scattered cloud here today with just a lightish breeze that went from almost South to North earlier.

recording audio of thunder was how I overcame my fear of thunderstorms when I was young. During nocturnal storms, I used to hide under my quilt with a "tunnel" for air.

When I was about 13, I was given a radio/tape recorder. I started recording the thunder and it couldn't be loud enough!

I now enjoy watching the lightning and listening to the thunder.

I enjoy going on storm chases with like minded people.

I try and encourage my visits to Darwin for work during the wet season. More often than not however, the "Great Southern Curse" follows me up there and the storms disappear only to return upon my departure. Grrr...

And we picked up 5mm this arvo as those two narrow cloud bands passed by (all whilst out trying to play golf).

The last cloud band didnt clear, its still thickly overcast and continuing to drizzle here atm.

Great follow up moisture after our lucky storm last Wednesday smile

Another 1.5mm in the evening took us to 6.5mm for yesterdays change (totaling 38.5mm for past week). Things will green up big time in the narrow Newry-Maffra-Sale zone (where last Wednesdays narrow thunderstorm tracked).
