Any idea what your YTD total is Karl?

The Melbourne water website for Mitcham says we have had 746mm. Apparently YTD this time last year was 496mm.

Have we really had THAT much more this year?

That's not bad, considering we didn't get anything from Jan to early Feb.

It is highly doubtful with many suspect readings out there Luke, but it would be around 550mm me thinks or closer to 600mm.

I have lost my records of the earlier months rainfall so I will try and source it and come back to you but we have had closer to 700mm down here now.

Well i was away all weekend at a friends place near black rock, on saturday arvo we decided it was NEVER gonig to rain, so we began putting the christmas lights up on the 2 storey house. Then not long into it was when it just came down bucketloads, so much so, everything was flooding within seconds. My friend decided he was going to get the lights put up, rain or no rain, so i stood under an umbrella directing him as he got soaked - least it was very warm still.

Just got home to boronia as the last deluge was upon us....doesnt seem to have been quite so much rain here - and was very releived to find the garage wasnt flooded like it usually does everything we get a storm.

so good to see all the rain and everything lapping it up and getting a good wash..but i really do miss the regular spring/summer thunderstorms that you could always rely on which now seem to be a thing of the past.

47mm up to 9am this morning, and a further 17.5mm today. Front porch is completely flooded, and will take a few days to subside once the rain stops.



Just caught a glimpse of lightning off towards the south through the open blinds, the lights flickered similtaneously. No thunder heard, and have no idea how far away it was!

No leaks Jane Wink? Been very wet the last few days and with the potential for another 40mm late week, you may have your own waterfront!!

Little cell south of here has glaciated so potentially a rogue bolt.

Hi everyone, first post from me, but a longtime reader from weatherzone. Scored 81mm out of the system, which is higher than the Bom viewbank station a couple of K's away. My gauge is generally pretty accurate give or take a few mm's. Bucketed down saturday night, struggled to hear the tv over the rain...

Laughing No leaking roof, thankfully, Karl! I have a waterfront and my very own moat at the moment, and will start to bucket it down the drains tomorrow...especially if there is another 40mm due. Trust me, that's all I need...NOT!! The sticky mud is horrendous!

Hi BK!!! Welcome aboard... That is a handy fall of rain there... nice work. Keep posting in with updates from that region, sort of fill a gap between a few forumites on here.

Jane I could send you a palm tree to drink it up!!!

Beatrix Kiddo - welcome. The more (weather nutters/watchers) the merrier.

Picked up another 2mm last night from a rogue shower so the event finished on 74.2mm for us. Best in 11 months, so very happy.

A glorious morning this morning. Brilliant clear sky, dew/mist dripping off the trees and the frogs croaking. Just to spring is meant to be.

Well ended up with 41mm from the event. Very happy result considering the Bendigo Airport Station is about 7km north of where i live. It only got about 20mm for the event.

Tank full again and no garden watering needed for a while...wrapped

Now for the end of this week! Bring it on.

Yes it is quite high and I think that band of heavy showers which dropped 4-7mm in front of the Dandenongs last night in quick time would have sent the creek higher.

I think with lower temps this week and higher surface humidity - it will rain a lot easier.

Certainly was a great system.

Another 1.4mm to 9am this morning. Otherwise a partly cloudy day but sunny right across the sky now. Nice and warm in that sun too! Very Happy

Dandenong creek always floods over Brady Rd and Heatherton Rd with a lot of rain, seen it many times over the years. Might check later to see how high it got and currently is.
