Interesting cell near Werribee and Laverton, if that grows then we're talking!!!

I'm watching it come in...how exciting!

ROFL, dogs were out on the grass when it started, now they're huddling under the pergola barking at it! Lots of hail now, bigger than pea sized Smile

lol. That just reminded me of my dog the other day when we had a few rolls of thunder. She wanted to rip the thunder apart, barking at it everytime it echoed across area.

Looks like we might get slammed any minute here in Sunshine, that red/orange dot on the radar seems to be heading right for us and have a visual out the south west facing window here.

Areas around the Murray are fareing best so far (and tipped by GFS Stormcast).
This is very much a hit and miss situation, with eastern areas more likely to see something of note.

Not too much in town since mid-morning. Still yet to top 2mm.

What I am finding fasincating is that band wrapping around near King Island in the Upper trough WSW of King Island.. Anyone think that band will head back North or NE towards Melbourne bringing another brust of even wetter weather in 6 to 10 hours time?

John, I think (yet again) that you're on the mark. The BOM TS forecast suggests that the atmosphere will de-stabilise this afternoon and overnight. Not sure if it will offer much in regards to lightning but may get some decent hail after dark.

Sun out in town, heat my little atmosphere!!! Cool

Was about to comment on the amount of blue sky about to my west now. Things have calmed down a little bit for now, could be an interesting evening for a few areas tonight.

There's another one near Avalon I'm keeping an eye on which looks good too but it might go south of here. I certainly enjoyed that last one, been a while since I've seen a decent downpour like that. Very Happy

Booming thunder to the SW of us here, looks like it will slide just south of me, must be the one you've just had DC?

10mm for me today. Will do my field testing on the weekend to see how far the rain of the last 10 days has penetrated.

The ants certainly got it right!

Congrats on the rain for everyone. We had very persistent rainfall overnight and this morning, now just showers, but they are very frequent and lots of hail chucked into the mix. Not sure on totals to 9am this morning, forgot, but will measure to 9am tomorrow and split it up via other locations to try and get it as accurate as possible, but there would be quite a bit considering we have quite extensive flash flooding around, the ground is just too wet to take in any more. Next week will dry things up a bit. Quite windy here too, only just starting to ease up.

Wes, I will get back to you on my YTD for the actual data, but its around 800mm. Very good!

WICKED little coldie ripping through at the moment, rain, hail and wind. It's quite a good one!! So small on radar but it's a cracker! EXCITED. Forgot to mention the hail was various sizes and some were chunky and sharp pieces of ice.
