    Radar showing some rain about to hit the Melbourne metro area. I wonder if it'll make its way over the ranges?

    Some downpours on the Sydney northern beaches. Looks like more on the way. We are going to get smashed this weekend! Hope the power stays on.

    You can see the birth of our system just about to happen over Hervey Bay. The inland low is just about to drop off the coast and meet the trough over Wide Bay.

    Once that happens, let it spin baby.

    The NE fetch feeding in from New Caledonia driving warm moist air into a developing ECL is awesome in itself but when you throw in some cold uppers heading in from the SW.

    The winner is weather. This will be one for the books

    Warm and moist in Jindy. I like that in a cake, not in my weather on the 4th of June.

    Of course it's all relative. My thermometer says 8c. "Warm"

    Intermittent heavy downpours last night when jogging between Bobbin Head and Belrose. Was quite soggy by midnight when we finished. Still, waking up this morning it's a sheet of water coming down, so good thing we're not out in it today.

    Heavy rain through half the night up here in Brissy. Won't be surprised at the flooding reports that will be coming in.

    There's a big white blob coming towards Dubbo at the moment. BOM say it dropped 30mm on Coonamble in about an hour. Next couple of hours will be interesting.

    Thunder in Syd Eastern Subs last night, can't remember many of those in winter. Pretty tropical here.

    Currently bucketing down, water running down windows like waterfalls. Fair bit of wind too. Radar is pretty impressive.

    BOM rain forcast for Melb today says only 3mm. Already 11.4mm in our gauge. Last night they were forcasting very small chance of rain for today. Think they under estimated this one.
