I think it's interesting that despite the large rainfall totals, the bigger river systems didn't go too crazy. Shows how dry the ground is?
Kangaroo River (downstream of Robertson/Maq pass) didn't crack 6m. I've seen it at 8-10m. Nepean River at Wallacia Weir looks to have peaked at 0.38m, I've kayaked several times at levels higher than that. Wingecarribee is running (which is rare) but not flood levels. Upper Shoalhaven has barely cracked paddleable levels.
so how far South of Braidwood ?Rain was patchy on the south coast. we only got 24mm at Kiama/Gerroa. Barren grounds above here was probably similar low totals. I'm probably following the Shoalhaven to it's souce tomorrow. Braidwood got 50 all up. Fords should be all open with those totals.
The swell wasn't big ...but it seemed to have alot of carry . Both on the surface and below.
Wind + fetch+ tide
I read it on the internet so must be true .few articles about lately on significance of the swell period too, legacy of wind and fetch as you say.
