    All lifts are on hold at Perisher, probably lightning hold? A few drops falling in Jindy, very gusty and overcast

    For good reason Robbo; thunder and lightning for the past 10min here at the Bend. Nice temperature drop too; so far about 5 degrees down to a still very balmy 15.

    First round has passed through Moonbah on the leeward side........air is currently still and I swear it’s greened up over the past couple of hours :)...

    8 mm thus far. Very welcome across paddocks.

    Good light show over about 2hrs here in Dubbo. And a handy 10mm on top of the 20mm odd we got over the weekend. Hopefully heading your way whippet so it fills up the pond which is now at 45%.

    A little tropical weather late yesterday, some rain, rumbles and lightening.

    I took the opportunity to burn two big piles of paddock clean up timber whilst the weather rolled through.

    Now cold clear and windy all the way up to Ramshead.

    Occasional hail and sago falling here at Island Bend, but too warm to get excited: 10.4 degrees. Cold in Vic resorts - hope it occurs here soon?
