    Just looking at the radar and those pics above, i reckon there's an awful potential for some landslides down there where the fires have been on the Great Ocean Road.

    The storm is inching it's way NE.
    Looks like Avalon and Werribee will get hit shortly.

    Frankston, Cranbourne and Pakenham all in line as it crosses the bay. Might affect a few train lines.
    Doesn't look like it'll affect my drive home, thankfully, or your ride either CC!

    Looks like the lower bayside suburbs might get it too. Perhaps Hampton and south?
    Not sure this lot will make the CBD.

    Geelong area. Absolute havoc on the roads. Flash flooding, cars floating.

    70mm+ in Walgett (NSW) today in less than 2 hours. That storm setup is heading east across the border rivers catchment. May put a good fresh down the Darling. Still flogging down in Dubbo - over 80mm so far since 6am.

    The frustration of summer storms, one suburb cops a drenching yet a few streets away it remains dry

    A bit sticky this morning, I had a good soak yesterday afternoon, and then again about 10pm. Cant complain, everything is nice and wet. More on the way today hopefully.

    Mother Nature put on a good light show while surfing the back beaches last night. Lots of distant CGs. Got back to Mornington around 9pm just in time for the storm to reach there and the light show to continue.

    It's a little unnerving looking at the radar and not seeing anything but 1 set of cells. You know it's coming, it's just a waiting game.

    BOM or yr.no for alpine area?
    BOM forecasts 10-20mm on Sunday, yr.no says 5mm. Gut feeling is yr.no is correct - thoughts?

    Pretty hard to pick where the troughy weather will hit. And the local variations are likely to be significant.

    Cheers, that reflects what I was seeing. If totals exceed 10mm it'll be from a storm, not all day rain.
