Would I be thinking accurately in that Sellick's Hill's Radar underestimates rain rates (slightly or a fair bit)?

It's fairly good in the convective stuff that's heavy but otherwise yes it does.

The line with that front was nothing short of violent. Flat out the heaviest rain here since the brilliant winter coldies of 2013. Amazing, lashing, sideways and just out and out torrential. Exactly like a monsoonal shower from the Top End. Got 10.4mm from that first one alone, few moderate to quite heavy ones since as well.

TS cool

I think with sellicks radar distance from radar has a much greater effect than the Doppler that is Buckland park. I don't think its too inaccurate up to say 50km, but beyond that it severely underestimates rain rates.
