    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.

    Yep, into that time of year where no weather is the norm.

    A nice heavy dew this morning in Exeter.

    Who is willing to agree that Adelaide will not reach double figures for rainfall this month?

    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.

    If this comes to pass, excellent, that will result in a good snow year.

    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! :)

    3.8mm out of the gauge at Fairview Park. Still not hopeful of anything meaningful this month or maybe the next.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    got 10.7mm from that tripe yesterday morning,
    most of it fell in around 15 mins.
    tomorrow is almost showing up as interesting on the charts.
    a half decent front with a cutoff cyclogenesis going
    through the s.e.
    i intrepidly wait with bated breath.

    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.
