Moruya Airport jumped 2.4mm between 0500 and 0530, I'm guessing it was shortly thereafter that a very strong squally band hit my house.
Yep enough rain!

Can confirm that the southern highlands remains wet.

Camp at belanglo has little solid ground remaining. Mostly flowing surface water.

Students appear mildly unenthusiastic about the prospects of adventure and learning outcomes today.

;-)
Watch those leaches :)

Several PWS stations around the Bundanoon, Exeter, Canyonleigh area with 250mm + for this event. Thats a big chunk of rain for that area. Has been like a magnet for those rain trains coming up off the Illawara escarpment and its still coming down.

Minor flood warning for the Nepean issued this morning too.

A further 33mm since midnight brings us to 190mm for the event.

This is from a PWS in Robbo. A tick over 400mm for the event, and already 90mm+ since midnight.

It’s been a mild, partly cloudy day here after some early showers. It hasn’t rained here since about 9:00. There are still some showers about but I’d say that the event is winding down and is pretty much finished here.

The following map could serve as a wrap-up of the event for NSW/ACT, although it doesn’t include anything recorded after 9:00.



There were widespread falls across the Eastern half of the State, although falls over 25 mm were mostly confined to the coast and tablelands. The focus was on the coast and hinterland South of Sydney where falls were mostly over 100 mm, with pockets of 200 mm+.
