More than me!, I am at ~42mm so far from this event, emptied the pitiful 4mm out last night in disgust...might pop down to the hardware for a new gauge, but that would guarantee no more rain for us. Very Happy

Wind gusts have hit here but the rain still to the west. Very dark and ominous looking on the western horizon.

Just got a quick fire 1.4mm out of the first showery band. Will be really interesting to see how the approach squall interacts with the bay and the hills in Melbourne's eastern suburbs. These usually slow down an explode, but everyone is different.

BTW Mt Hope has had 18mm in the last hour. Must be sheets of runoff happening up there.

Just had a humdinger of a gust front go through here, howling winds and a horizontal 2.5mm dumped in 2 mins, watch out when the thick end of it hits down south!

Awesome sky out there, watching the scud get sucked up into the approaching guster . Unfortunately can't see any of the structure because there is so much cloud at low levels

just came back from the shops and a quick look at the creek.

1. Got drenched as I was trying to get back into the house as the wind became squally with the heavier rain!

2. Kororoit Creek at this stage isn't as high as I was expecting, but then it would be interesting to see ot later on this afternoon, as this rain will continue and the flows come down from up north.

3. The little man-made creek near my house (not the lake in CS) is about to burst it's banks, the last time I saw this happen was during that Feb deluge we had in 2004 or 2005?

4. Caroline Springs Boulevard, near the football ground is slightly flooded.

edit: looks like we topped 44.2mm until 9am this morning here with 4.8mm so far since (so all up thats 49mm so far for this event!)

And it is only 10.15am!

It's hit. Absolutely belting down now and this would be nowhere near the heaviest rain with the line bending south around the mountain a bit.

That band weakening a bit now on radar with a lot of the rain heading south, should get a few more mm's though.

Good solid rain has begun here, quite heavy at times but not quite what I was expecting, I'm not disappointed though. I think it will get heavier.

Amazing stuff outside, sheets of rain flying down the road, ponds forming everywhere on my front nature strip/garden. This is stuff I haven't seen for a really long time.

Isn't it good to know that we can still get stuff out this way? And who said that we were having a dry November? Smile

On top of the chaddy car park, decent rain but nothing crazy at this stage. Nice view since they added another level Smile

Belting down here again, gutters overflowing, wet gusty wind and street drains full with a nice flow down my driveway! Amazing the amount of crap that is being washed away..not game to check the gauge, might get soaked! Will have a wander down to the creek to see what it is like, last time very little flow and lots of ponds, expect better now.

There's a small creek down in the property behind us, literally only around 300m long that only flows when we get really heavy rain and it is flowing now which is pretty awesome.

up to 7mm for the day now....rain has eased as we are in that wedge that has formed, with much heavier rain now to the north and north east. Area west of Wallan and between Wallan and Yan Yean will be getting a thumping now!

Sitting on the back edge of the band in chaddy, wind has picked up a lot from the south.

The gauge is fast filling up again with this burst, parents place up at Kilmore looks like getting smashed any minute going by the radar. Very Happy
