Not surprised there SC with the rain lingering over your region and Glen Waverley to here at work (Wheelers Hill). Just missed me at home.

Looks like EC was pretty close but the best of it was just a tad further south than predicted. Looks like Ferny Creek missed the better stuff by 10km.

The LIs are into the -ve's in eastern SA and near zero west of Melbourne so should see "some" development soon. The viz image suggests a few Cu have popped up.

That your right about DJ,

I can make out quite a few clusters of Cj and turkey activity in the mid layers presently. I think we will see quite a few showers and isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. If you get a storm, some strong winds and up to 10mm is likely in quick time.

A very windy period tomorrow morning.

Nice to see few cells around but they are way too small and moving to quickly to produce any good further rainfall In Melbourne today at best few areas may pick up 1-3 more mms

I have been watching the convection for the last hour or so - now seeing some really dark bases. If the cell that is heading for the City keeps its line and intensity I might see something out here in Notting Hill.

That certainly was a nice little surprise, think it peaked right over the top of us here. There will certainly be some other cells popping up during the next hour or 2, it's a little unstable out there.

A very heavy but brief storm here in Dockland. Very big drops but didn't see any hail.

Looks like that storm might just hit Ferny Creek (hopefully not with hail as the fruit trees are just starting to bud)

Well 24 up here now and needing this rain for crops that are going into stress now. Got a shock when I went for a look. Cloudband looking good coming across but it looks to be starting a bend to the north as it hits the change in the bight. Hope it doesn't do that. There is only a very light breeze up here so it must only be southern areas getting that. If there was no cracks in the ground it would be a perfect day up here. Just had a couple of spots out of a virga shower but nothing like what we need

Well, that was a nice suprise! at home coz of a bad back, but that short insanely powerful storm has kept me entertain for a good 5 minutes. Anyone think there is more of that around? i would take a guess that dropped atleast 9mm on us, the back yard was swimming in water, even had the occasional bit of hail falling with it.
