Eastern Burbs of Sydney
It rained in the Eastern 'burbs of Sydney today. It wasn't even enough to register in the Sydney metro stations, but stone the bloody crows; I saw it spit water from the sky for about half an hour this arvo...

We had about 3 drops further Sth.
Bathurst copped the balance for all of us I observed.

It actually rained in Wollongong.
Unbelievable.
Of course it's stopped now.

I went up to Mt Wellington in Hobart yesterday and froze in light rain, temp was 8 degree. It was 14 in town at the same time. Just a few drops around this morning. Hope it's not too wet at Port Arthur today.

just looked at the AWS , Mount Boyce has only recorded 35mm since 11/6. median would have it around 150mm .
Only about 12mm since the same date down here. Farking dry. Sundays "rain" wasnt enough to register.

Thunderstorms this afternoon apparently, I'm not seeing it for down here but might get a few drops further up.

haha yo sicko..
what??
We have a joke in this household about storms and 3pm. They always arrive right on bell time.
In the old days I would walk around with an umbrella. Now I just make the daughter walk home and cop the rain. If they are too cool for a raincoat....

anyways . You can see the southerly around Bega way. The edge of the westerly bashing into that southerly will be the spot.

Isn't CAPE the indicator ?
coupled with LI ?

CAPE is the potential energy that is there, regardless of if storms are present or not. It's not a reliable indicator of whether storms will trigger or not (although a higher CAPE is generally easier to trigger) but it's a really good indication of the amount of energy available should storms eventuate. Long story short - Regardless of CAPE you need to do some work to get into positive buoyancy and get instability, but a high CAPE value gives you better fireworks should that happen.

Regarding CAPE also look at the soundings at how high the EL ( Equilibrium Level ) is. Shows the neutral bouyancy level- maximum upper cloud level.
