Well done to everyone else for scoring much needed rain.

3mm from a rogue scud this morning. Saves some watering for the day. Hopefully we get some increased activity from tonight onwards.

Back in Mareeba now so back to storms missing my location. Had 17.2mm at home while I was away. Definitely a lot greener now. Loads of trees and big branches down around Atherton and the scrub just north of MAP.

Still looking like we will get a good drink. Would like it to move a little further north though to improve our chances. grin

EDIT: looks like Atherton is going to cope it again!!!

Yeah things are moving in all sorts of directions. Probably had about 15mm. Will check later.
Great thunder and lightning.

Mareeba is green in the 1st week of December. I would have never thought it would happen. Especially not this year. Hopefully a bit more to come over the next week or so.

13.2mm. Rainfall rate peaked at 160mm/hr.

This is my wettest start to December in my time in Mareeba and it only needs 0.2mm to be the second wettest December overall.
2015 is the wettest with 202mm but only 1.2mm fell in the first 3 weeks. Dec 2016 total was 15.6mm. Dec 2017 30.4mm.

Had some heavy rain in the city late last night for about 10 minutes. Looks like the southeasterly is arriving now.

Sometimes I think you're better off without guttering,- as long as there's grass right up to the house, otherwise all the mud and sh!t splash up the walls.

Lots of houses in Darwin don't bother with them.

62mm from that little storm and a massive lightning bolt just outside the house that blew up the phone but thankfully not the computers..

Highest daily rainfall for more than 8 months...

We never did put up the gutters, they're stored in the weeds somewhere because I could never work out where the torrential flow would go safely away so gave up.
Am awake because of some mighty cracks passing overhead with.. yayy us, rain. 30mm.
Reassuring to see the southeasterly flow pattern has finally reached us, perhaps bringing cooler weather.
Unusually we sat out the storm without sweating like pigs with the storm doors shut so it must be cooler already. Although I've asked for a car battery with small inverter for a fan for standby in future, hate leaning on partner for chores but it really would help when all the power has been turned off.

I'm awake to Dormant - just so noisy couldn't even try and sleep so made a cup of tea and sitting in the porch.
Had one almighty crack moments ago from a cg just down the street which I saw out the corner of my eye - jumped about a foot in the air and half the street lights went out?? Abit weird.
45 mm so far from storms tonight smile

Had a nice heavy 20 mins of rain to cool everything down. Temp dropped about 3 in about 20 mins.

After the N to NE winds the S.Easterly set in about 20:00h. Never thought I'd be so happy to see a cooling S.E. flow. DP backed off a few degrees too. Really pleasant at the moment.
