7.5mm now and things are starting to break into heavier showers inbetween light rain. Would be wrapt to get to 10mm out of this considering how it has died off on it's move from SA. Clouds coming more from the WNW now and by the looks of the sat loop we may not be too far from the back edge now. Is there much of a chance of storms on the back edge of this?

There could be some thunderstorms along the back edge this afternoon mate, particularly Mallee and Northern Country regions IMO.

Some really good falls now clocking up but the radar is not looking good for Melbourne. Rain north/south/east/west Rolling Eyes Gotta wonder what is going on with our weather...

On the flip side I suspect the best rain is actually back in the radar hole between Melbourne/Mt Gambier - eg Mortlake has had near 10mm in the last 2 hours.

Not surprised by the rain failing Melbourne. Breaking up on entry literally from the west.

Rain shadows - doesn't matter what direction anymore.

Might end up with more Saturday!!!

Excellent falls inland though!!! Fantastic Smile

Yeah slight chance Adon but only 15% chance I'll give it for storms your way.

EC heavy rain for Melbourne by Mid morning looks to be failing once again. Still think we will get very little unless the wind shifts South Westerly or southerly until then we will get buckleys in Melbourne.

Just light rain here i hate the rain shadow effect.

Good to see some usefull falls through Western Victoria and SA, would except some good falls along the divide today.

Edit: 18z GFS still has the best falls for Melbourne after 3pm though i am not counting on it.

Actually I am more inclined to think the best rain will be around 3pm. The band developing off the western ranges currently looks good. DJ mentioned this earlier.

US has 25mm for us today.

Up to 5mm in Ferny Creek now so is adding up nicely - steady moderate rain. The western/northern burbs are really struggling at the moment Rolling Eyes

Well this is great the rain is just getting heavier very heavy for the last 30min not good for working in No im drenched just on lunch. 8mm upto 9am and 4.2mm till now im thinking 20mm from this one for me Very Happy. Also the wind has swung to the SSW for the last hour so hopefully this will change things for the Melbourne area.

20mm in the gauge to 9am. I just drove to and back from Colac and it has not stopped raining yet, though looks like things will ease and clear over the next couple of hours here. Heavy rain at spots too, lots of local flooding on the roads.

Had just over 2mm here in Moorabbin so far. Nice to see the Thomson will get a decent drink for once.

Next Monday should hopefully be much better in terms of mm output.

Looks like there is a possibility for convection tues next week with some models suggesting instability feeding in from SA.

Just on 4mm with some work to do. May struggle for 10mm in the hills which is a shame.

7mm in Ferny Creek... which is OK provided the second part of this event delivers.

Hate to say it but I reckon the weaken/re-strengthen scenario may be playing out (with Melbourne/central areas in the middle). The band is really building in the NE/east - the western part should also thicken up this arvo, but is not looking that great ATM. Case of watching the radar and crossing fingers.

Can't believe parts of Melbourne still haven't got off 0mm.

My mum used to tell me, if you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all.

That's my thoughts on this event.

Overcast in town, boring.....

Looks like the secondary rain is splitting a melbourne looks more than likely to miss it.

Ah well it's falling inland so that's a concession.

Don't feel so upset considering only expected 1-5mm across Melbourne. Not suprised given the sky screamed little this morning.
