5.5mm in Clare with some loud bangs of thunder and heavy rain just after 4am, best rain in a couple of months. Looks like parts of the upper north had over 10mm, maybe even 15mm under areas that got stronger storms/trained, have to wait until tomorrow to find out.

Humid out there and with convergence lining the ranges this afternoon should hopefully see some convective showers at least get up on the ranges, if not some storms. EC less keen than gfs but still has showers. Main issue is the atmosphere itself is rather dry, need plenty of mixing of surface moisture to lcl to occur, if it does to enough of a degree should see some tall towers go up, could go either way. See how we go.

2.0mm at Uleybury, was a nice small drop but wish it was more, but nice to have some humidity in the air for a bit anyway

A total of 0.4mm for me, would have been nice to have a bit more. Smell of the rain was nice though.

Should see some storms along the eastern slopes, maybe upper north, and then eastward today. An annoying warm bulge @600mb which may hinder things and still quite a dry atmosphere but surface moisture is considerably better today and a bit of a jet exit over the top. The moisture was very obvious on satpic this morning with a slab of cloud penetrating well inland. About 800 or so CAPE to work with and slack shear but this may work in its favour given the CAPE is quite skinny.

Thursday was actually quite an impressive day of storms. A beast got going off the far northern lofties, rooted into the upper winds and took off across no mans land. Very well could have been a supercell, I could see a broad anvil and a dome overshoot on it through the haze. Another strong cell went up near Yunta late, another very impressive looking multicell, likely flash flooding recorded under it.

As for local stuff, a very decent Cb calvus went up over Burra eventually and whilst not being very lightning active, produced an impressive anvil and broad boiling towers, best I have seen since 2016. I went and investigated east of Burra and found a local microburst had flooded the flats out there quite spectacularly, enough that the flats were awash and sheets of water were running out of the paddocks. It only affected a small area but some dams were filled and the wildlife was loving it. Probably the most significant rain out there for potentially years. Pretty special seeing the breaking of drought, however brief.

3.5mm today in Clare and lovely cool temps. Loving the forecast for the week ahead, no storms but nice comfortable temps.

Hi all, I was in naracoorte over the Thursday-Sunday just been. Watered the garden to buggery wednesday expecting to come home and find everything looking a bit sorry but it seems we got a bit of the wet stuff?

Some of the kids toys in the backyard had a couple mm in them, I'm in south plympton, anyone nearby know roughly how much fell?

Gnerall falls of 2-4mm fell across the Adealaide Area so would say 2-3mm is likely what you would have gotten there.

Another 1.6mm in the gauge this morning brings my total over the last few days to 5.0mm.

Nice to be sleeping with the quilt on again smile
