    Storms have gone up NW of the city heading straight towards metro.
    Will be interesting to keep an eye on these to see if they either run out of juice before they get here, continue to build or get blown away by the S seabreeze in the SE burbs.
    Cooled a lot outside, but its still muggy, was sweating big time on my run this arvo.

    Fingers crossed for some flashes once the suns gone.

    Bit of rain overnight, enough to make everything wet this morning.
    3mm my phone was telling me.
    Light drizzle on my way to work, anything could happen today. Bit of sun this arvo and it could blow up this arvo, or it could just drizzle all day. Who knows.....

    IMO I'm not feeling it. Looks like most of it is passing SW of us.
    Perhaps this afternoon will be better.

    Oly Park has collected 5mm today.
    Just enough to settle the dust and make the roads nice and slippery.

    I thought it was only very light rain until I saw some of the totals. Nice way to break the heat.

    Can't see it happening in Melbourne.
    We have a weak SW which will work against it, don't think the triggers are there tbh.

    Raining now in Gerringong - though looks pissy rather than drenching - will probably slide up to the Gong

    Chucking it down in Myrtleford, and some good rain overnight. Humidity will go off the charts when it warms up
