Locations which may be affected include Horsham, Bendigo, Shepparton, Seymour, Maryborough, Ballarat, Geelong, Melbourne, Wodonga and Wangaratta.
I predict that somebody, somewhere, will call f****r when they don't pick up at least 30mm out of this.
My money is on Bendigo
if we dont get atleast 50mm in Elwood ill call it
Here we go bois.
Already some weather about, with some storms north of Bairnsdale, and a few popping up in the Wimmera near Horsham and west of Hamilton too
West looks like it's about to pop.
Nice heavy cloudburst at Moonbah-dropped in off the range. 5.5mm in around 20 mins. All contributions gratefully received!
Not often you see lightning this widespread.
boring in Sydney, as usual...
We might be in for an interesting late arvo and evening here.
Your time will come
Had some nice clouds forming over the Yarra ranges earlier this afternoon and a bit of a wind. Cleared up mostly now. The calm before the storm.
EC has wound back figures for Melbourne for tomorrow to 30mm.
With another 30 on Friday, mostly early am.
Looks like Apollo Bay and Lorne are in the firing line, EC going for over 110mm
Sounds a bit more reasonable. All the action has stayed to the west so far this evening, bit disappointing. Held off after work building and rendering tonight just in case, should of run the gauntlet. Would of got some action then.
Mrs is in a little rex plane in Stormy skies this evening. WOuld be fun.
It looked like something serious building when I got home, all dissipated now.
f***** shall i call it
Nice shot GS.
Here we go:
Great photo. Thats what i was seeing too, thought we had something on the way.
winds have started to really pick up in the Dandenongs, just had a sheet of tin that i had missed fly across the garden! Maybe give it a bit before we call it a f****
need 50mm+ in Elwood or I'm calling it.
I reckon thats fair.
Teams Bears must have missed something !!
Surely not a fizzer?Fake news?BOM beat up?
Patience little bears!
Ok!It pisses down right on the morning commute with the maniac Melb motorists .
Team Bears playing spot the free standing water on the freeways .Great day for perfecting aqua planing techniches ......finally its arrived....the big wet weather day!
Radar showing it really brewing up in the last 20m.
The top of the bay has gone from clear to storms all over the place.
Wangaratta at 41mm and Yarrawonga @ 35mm seem to have done best so far.
Progged rain for early this morning in Sydney hasn’t eventuated, missing out on 5-10mm.
Holsworthy picking up the most this morning at 3mm.
steady here now, radar looks juicy, going to go for a while
localised down this way also.
started about 4am
Point Perp got 3mm we got 1.
more incoming next hour or two
hosing down now
11mm overnight at Canberra Airport and a juicy band hitting now.
Very heavy rain in Melbourne City for the past 10 minutes or so. Walked to work in it and my legs are basically reshowered.
Torrents of water on the streets and sidewalks. Not seen anything like it before in Melbourne except during a big storm.
I think Elwood, Melbourne
7mm so far in our gauge in Emerald and back to 17c. Radar looking juicy, plenty more to come.
Yes marvellous conditions for playing spot the puddle.
Another 14mm in Dubbo last night after 10mm the night before.
Yep, with more to come
Current radar loop suggesting Bendigo is in the path of a big storm. They might actually get some rain.
Looks like it might find its way further south and hit the metro area too. Fingers crossed.
A couple of gauges near Wang have already cracked the ton
CFA are smiling this week!
Nervous smile. This is pretty much the critical point of the summer fire season. This amount of rain is a godsend, but if it stops after this, in 4-6 weeks time after furious growth then die-off, we could be in for a bad late-season bushfire period. From this point on, it needs to keep on raining semi-consistently (average rainfall totals for the month or better) to relieve the threat.
The recent rains have certainly changed the fire season outlook or at least delayed it.
Melbourne radar looks mint right now
My olds have told me they only received 1mm overnight. Bendigo donut must have shifted east for this system
Well, until now - radar looks like a good cell is dumping there right now
