The fault's been flagged and looked into. From what I know I'm reasonably optimistic that a reasonably accurate daily total will be recoverable, although probably not for a few days at least.

haha, thanks for your feedback blair. lets hope so, from what
you say it appears was more of a transmission fault rather than
a recording problem which is good as far as official records go.
ok so my gauging ended up as 31.6mm, not bad seeing as i was
only expecting 10-15mm.
my cropping mate up about halfway between bute and port
broughton texted me to say he ended up with 56mm which is
on top of 38mm for the year so far so he's happy as.
pity the riverland missed the big stuff, from what i see
the core of the rainband was about 100km south of the progs
on the models...... roughly.

45.6mm of rain at home for the event. About timee finally get a decent rainband like that.

A nice Jetstream associated with an upper level trough combined with a surface trough and cold front to ignite the first band with storms following the main band of rain.

Models I thought faired well, some areas hit and miss but I was expecting a general 30-50mm for the Adelaide Area which it certainly delivered in the way of things. Access G needs serious calibration as it is out by a minimum 50km to the west, you can tell as it had the classic hills anomaly over the Gulf. I am quite disappointed in the BoMs forecast of 5-15mm, from 8-25mm to 6-20 to 5-15, talk about relying on one model when many others were in line for the Adelaide Area. It actually reminds me of a very similar event on May 31 2013, same thing happened minus the storms, BoM had 5-15mm for the city and they got 38.8mm, Edinburgh around 55mm.

Nothing down this way today. Would like some followup showers in the next few days.

another 11.5mm between my last post and yesterday, not bad
for a few straggly 'followup' showers.
that makes my total for this threads parameters to 43.1mm,
for here not too shabby at all.
