    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 LOL
    Well, until now - radar looks like a good cell is dumping there right now
