Great photo Robyn. Explains why out power flickered on and off for about 3 hours (reckon we had about 10-20 blackouts/brownouts) during this period. Shame about that tree - was a really pretty one.

Looks like a few showers coming up from the SW for central areas. No more rain overnight in Ferny Creek - so event totals stands at 8.6mm.

Just under 8mm for the event here. Little disappointed that nothing more eventuated early morning, nor does much look like happening today.

Well we got a nice dumping up here!!! Woke up Sunday morning after a bit of drizzle. Went to church then out to sisters house for a late lunch till about 730pm. When I woke up this morning to lots of puddles around the house found an amazing 32mm in the gauge!!! Was certainly not expecting that much!!!

Some great falls there guys. I am happy to hear that some follow up falls occured through 2/3rds of the state especially along the divide.

Must be nice and green up your way Rikki cosidering it was green when I was there a month ago.

Another 1.5mm between 8:30pm and 10:30pm last night, final total 23mm.

Also very green up here. Still rather brown and dead looking right through the western suburbs but then greens up a bit at Sunbury and then heaps from Riddells Creek onwards. Lots of puddles all over the place and standing water in creeks/drains.

Looking very wet over the course of the next week and a half. Probably the best outlook for rain we have seen for ages.

Just by way of illustration here is a map showing the heat on Sunday (perhaps the peak of the event). The red areas are where a new record high August temperature was set, the orange areas are where the day was in the warmest 1% of August days, and yellow where it was in the warmest 3% of August days.
