15.3mm for March and 67.2mm YTD. 17.4mm & 62.0mm corresponding figures for Adelaide Airport.

That nice total you had on Jan 26 has given you a healthy YTD Skifree.

Hope we get some decent rain sometime in April, although I won't be holding my breath.

20 - 30 years ago that cyclone would have ripped
across us and dumped 2-3" on us.
now every day is sfa.
if winter follows summers example we might be lucky
enough to get sustinance rainfall but it aint
gunna be no feast. clear and bitterly cold will be the
order of the season.

0.7mm yesterday and another 0.4mm brings the YTD rainfall to 68.3mm. Sharp contrast to April last year which was easily the highest April total in the 7 years I have been living at this location.

I heard someone yesterday say that there's nothing much on the cards rainfallwise during April & May.

Last winter was drier that both autumn & spring from memory which isn't good.

If we keep tracking the way we are, then finally the various weather agencies and the media might finally acknowledge the lack of rainfall in the many areas away from the Tropics and Eastern seaboard.

Nice little bit of precipitation over night and still continuing.
I can see rain in my gauge but I have yet to venture out to check how much!

Ok, I checked - 5mm :)
you've done quite well. I did see a 13mm around the Meadows area when I had a look at the radar last night.
I received 1.4mm, so I've doubled my April total in one foul swoop! :)

Another 1.4mm from an early morning shower freshened the garden. Would be nice to not have had the decimal point, but anything is better than nothing at this stage while we wait for the season opening rains.

Will have to check mine when I get home, was to dark at leave time today.

And of course it will continue to rain while I have my rain water tanks disconnected from the roof.:doh:

Copped 13mm in the Exeter gauge today. Short sharp shower apparently.
Talk about location, location, location....!!
I emptied 2.3mm yesterday morning & another 2.7mm this morning to bring my April total to 10.3mm & YTD 77.5mm. Corresponding figures for the airport are 9.8mm & 71.8mm.

Another 3.5mm this morning has brought the monthly total to 13.8mm & YTD to 81.0mm.

I'm not sure if much more rain fell after I emptied the gauge at 7am, I'll check tomorrow morning.

I haven't checked in for a while, March my total was 22mm compared to the average closest BoM station of 27.6mm.
Jan 28.5, Feb 32.7 for a total including March of 88.8 compared to BoM station average of 68.2mm.

So far in April a couple of handy showers with the total sitting on 22.5mm but forecast wise that looks about it. BoM station average for April is 44.7mm.

Last year 2020 Jan 73mm, Feb 13.5, March 3 and April a whopping 122mm.

Thanks Parklife for your rainfall summary. It's interesting to see data from various sites.

A rather late update to my previous post, but have been up the Top End last week checking out what real rain looks (& sounds!) like (as well as working).
0.5mm emptied out on 24/4 at 9:20am, but this may have fallen soon after 7am on the previous day.
Anyway, April ended up with 14.3mm (a sharp contrast to 95.7mm for 2020) and YTD 81.5mm (cf 147.5mm in 2020 at the end of April).

A suitably messy & very changeable sky today. Can’t say I hold much hope for tomoroz forecast of rain. It’s all upper level stuff as far as I can see.

Had reports of some very intense showers in very localised areas. A couple in the hills & at least one down south.

someone up near meadows got 18mm,
strath got 16 and 15 in the bridge.
watched a large cell develop to near purple
core pass just north of murray bridge.
someone got pummelled nicely over that, overall
it was a small tear drop shaped rainband where
the bulk passed through the fleurieu peninsular
and tapered back to the nw finishing around
port adelaide traveling in an ene direction and
dispersing after passing murray bridge/tailem bend
area.

May 8 & 9 combined for 6mm mostly from the 8th. Today (10th May) this morning the narrow rain band dumped 9.5mm in about 30 minutes. Short sharp showers accompanied with some decent gusts signals a south westerly for the next couple of hours, would not appear to be a lot in them gauge wise.
