    you'd think there was an ECL sitting off the coast.

    The rain is utterly pounding in from the east. Very rare to see like this.

    Update from down South...

    20.5 mm in the can. All done in 30 mins! Last seen heading Eastbound....

    Paddocks will benefit. Plenty of run off though.



    External shed drainage failed and drainage in the shed could not cope with the influx.

    From an hour ago in Killara. We're under the second cell now. Far more lightning now than when the hail was at its biggest.
