    Another uncomfortable day up here and thankfully those fires are not in my area. Fingers crossed the radar will light up again later on.

    62ml since the storms kicked off at 4am this morning but the South East has kicked in so it should build over the next few hours. Looks like Wyong is copping it going by the Radar.

    Def Fizz for the afternoon system!

    My suburb was listed as one of the high numbers in this morning. But nothing much as yet this afternoon.

    153mm here in the Lower BM's since midnight. Some crazy rainfall rates at times. Looks like a clearing trend to the South as the low moves towards the North. That's fine, we've had more than enough! Hopefully the Hunter gets a good drenching as well.

    Models have been right on this one.
    Even the GFS wobble that was observed a day or so back seems to be justified .

    It was too windy for the coastal Illawarra.
    Places with topography that could capture that flow enhanced the precip rate. Eg Robertson, BMs etc.
    The strong onshore was pushing showers right up inland.
    Last nights or rather this mornings storms were the money for rainfall. Where they occurred was a bit of a lottery.

    Likely they must err on the side of sending cautious message .
    Plus the fact there nothing like a good beat up story.
