Just 12mm up here in Ferny Creek. Did expect at least 20mm - so unless it rains 8mm overnight - I'm calling it a dud!

BTW the paddocks are full of water in South Gippsland (south of about Fish Creek). I've recorded 190mm at Sandy Point for the month which would be about decile 10. This comes on about 120mm in July and 100+ in June. Driving back the roads had water up to a few inches in places flowing across them. I haven't seen it that wet down there in ~10 years of going down (I've seen flash floods but this is a genuine water sogging).

Hard to believe that just 100km north Melbourne is headed for one of the driest years on record Rolling Eyes

PS getting some decent showers up here now - not heavy but steady.

Only 8mm for us, but just had a surprise shower come through here and skies are looking quite laden to the west. Radar showing a bit going on over Geelong way, maybe we can add a mm or two more?

We got around 15mm from the system. 41 mm in the last week which is great.
Real winter weather at Mt Macedon, 8C max yesterday, -!C this morning to 5.1C this afternoon, snow flurries throughout last night, ice on everything this morning, sleety showers and sunny breaks today.High, fast-moving clouds. Perfect weather for me! Sad to see that the system did not pan out for Melbourne, very dissapointing but what can you expect?
Havent checked but did the Melbourne catchments get much?

20-40mm Snow Smile Looks like some good runoff throughout. The best areas are the Upper Yarra region which had about 120mm this week but you won't hear those figures being official Wink

Good report Greg.

15mm here for the event, so not bad with 1mm from yesterday.

0.3mm overnight for us. Again just too dry in the low levels to deliver (same old story). Should be a burst of showers today moving across from the west (into Melbourne around lunchtime). LAPS has locally 5-10mm in it (particularly east central areas looks like they may do OK). Would be nice to kick of Spring with a fall.... today's rain now counts for September.

More good falls overnight about the higher ranges including 10mm at Mt William and 23mm at Mt Buller - westerlies banking up on the ranges day after day are the best thing for sustained runoff.

About 13mm for the event here and ~42mm for the week. Nothing to sneeze at.

We ended up with around 10mm at Mansfield for the weekend. Ground is really wet and even with those light/moderate falls, run off is occurring into Lake Eildon. Also the river under the Bonnie Doon bridge is now 3-4 metres wide and following quite vigorously.

Blackie,
If possible, next time you go over the Bridge, could you take a photo.
Certainly nice to see the rain up there on Saturday evening Smile
Cheers mate!

Quite heavy showers here the last hour and more to come by the looks of things. 1.4mm here and just coming down again.

Looking at the radar there is a bit more to come. 3-5mm possible over the course of this afternoon.

Dribs and drabs do add up over time...

They are getting chunky Karl. Nice little clump heading your way. Any chance a rumble today?

Also pleasing that the activity (albeit light) is penetrating inland.

Wind gusts to around 40 knots here with whiteout conditions. Pity it didn't last longer but around 3mm here in about 5 minutes. 4.4mm for the day. Sun coming back out but a little convection to the west and showers further west and southwest.

Chance of a thunderstorm yes Wes, not a lot in it but the odd CC and rumble about with small hail.

OK from across the Strait but still relevant...

Looks like Maatsuyker Island has broken its record August wind speed by 15 km/hr this morning with a gust of 174km/hr at 10:30am (the old record dates back 5 days). This also equals the all months record. The pressure gradient in the region is running at 9hPa over 90km Shocked

From being in South Gippsland on the weekend it was apparent that the wind/wave storms during the past week had done the most damage to the beaches that I've seen in 10+ years of visits with severe erosion into sand dunes (this included a 0.8m storm surge last Tuesday at Crib Point).

Not much to report from the CBD - the rain repellent continues to work with black north, south, east and west but not overhead.

Will do Sniper. Took me by surprise seeing it flowing so hard. Just had a burst of heavy showers in Sth Melbourne - sub whiteout for a few minutes but that intensity was isolated

Just shy of 5mm here bounce I was driving through it the back way from Pakenham to Lysterfield, puddles everywhere and very heavy at times, the wipes had trouble keeping up! Looks like more is on it's way.

Had a reasonable heavy period of shower activity. Not quite whiteout but a reasonable rate.
A bit of a surprise this! Almost beats our effort on Saturday which was much hyped

Very heavy shower or even a storm in the Lilydale region presently. Still raining here. A share under 9mm.

See if we can sneak 10mm.
