13mm so far. We seem to be in a weekly recurring pattern of 10-15mm falls.

60mm here since 25th May and the creeks are starting to run.

The Mallee and Wimmera had only 2-10mm overnight. Barely enough to get planted crops going... Hopefully some decent follow up next week.

We hit peak Yarra on Sunday, SUP’d 8km from Fairfield to Dights, ensuring we got out before the Falls which were v impressive. A few Oz Olympic kayakers were having fun. Awesome day out on the river, fairly flew past the bay colony.

yep, best time to go. Just keep the mouth shut when inverted and avoid bumping into drowned cattle (happened to us near Jumping creek one flood event)

I paddled for many years along the yarra around Fairfield and never had a problem with sickness from the water.Obviously when in flood conditions, best to not swallow. Have seen dead cows and other crap floating down. Highest floods seen were in early 80s where we paddled over the latrobe golf course and when dights falls were just running straight over with no drop at the falls.
Under the chandler hwy bridge you can see names and dates of the major floods pre 1960 which were much higher than what we have seen in the past 50 years.

Some light showers this morning, less than a mm. Quite a pleasant day here. Collected another trailer load of wood with the eldest daughter this morning. Monbulk college yrs 10-12 could return today but no power so she wasn't keen to go.
Macclesfield primary had managed to obtain a big generator to run the basics but no drinking water or heating so kids were having a pajamas day. Glad some kids could return, was all a bit much after lockdown.
We have internet back too!

Down at work with the novelty of working internet.
Still a lot of folks out around us. Little street adjoining ours still has trees and power lines down across the road and on top of cars.

Still some unbelievable sights.

Beautiful morning with fog laying low in the valley and making some amazing mountain like formations. Helping provide some distraction.

Here's hoping today's the day for you.

A friend is a linesman for Ausnet and has been working non-stop other than mandatory breaks. They'll all be exhausted by the time repairs are completed
Came on just after midnight. So relieved and grateful. Ausnet have just released a message saying that 3000 customers around the Dandenongs are now looking at July 10th.
I can’t even. Surely emergency Government assistance must come in to play now.

Gosh you'd hope Ausnet come to the party and provide temp generators.

Dry at 6am for the start of the morning ride, but it started raining about 7:30 am and was decidedly quite wet by the time I got home.
Radar shows more showers heading in from the SSE.

Very wet now in Gleniris .....heavy/moderate rain this hour!

Now an evening of traffic jambs because of the way these restrictions have been metered out.
Its quite sad our authorities have limited understanding of the effects of its poor management!

Stay warm.Nasty weather forecast for NE Vic later tonight?Drive safe.:)

Fresh this morning, but a super day it's turned into. No wind, and the sun has enough warmth to do garden chores in a T-shirt.
Next couple of days look to follow the same pattern before the rain returns Wednesday afternoon.

Sure has been a glorious sunny Sunday. I hope everyone here has power and internet restored by now, and hopefully all others without it, will regain it sooner rather than later. Makes it hard to enjoy these sort of winter days for those without :(

Not a cloud in the sky, not a breath of wind, hit a top of 15 by mid-afternoon in the outer north-east. Perfect day for re-potting plant duties. We had to pretend we’re still in lockdown so we could spend the rest of the afternoon lazily sitting in the garden with coffee and snacks, without guilt.

Seemed our landlords agreed

Such a gorgeous day outdoors that we caught a few of the local teenage gang members having a skinny dip in our pond

Finally some sunshine - beautiful clear skies, but bit chilly. Lots of sparkles with sun shining on all the mini creeks running through the property - but I'll take that over dust any day of the week. So beautiful to see East Gippsland looking green and lush after so many dry years. The kids don't remember it being as wet as it is now, it's been so long. Finally feels like a real winter.

I need to get out and get some photos.

Nothing kind of day today - overcast, cool morning and light wind. Water is still flowing into the dams from last week's rain, and I still can't mow. Month to date rain is 109.5mm after 113.5mm in May. Year to date is 465mm! Loving it!

Not expecting much from current weather system, as it won't make it over the mountains. Not looking good for the mountains from a snow perspective, although BOM thinking snow for Hotham tomorrow.

Very mild this morning, back to shorts for the ride to work.
Radar shows a broad area of rain, but the state wide AWS network is showing very little of it is ending up on the ground.
Im in melbs atm, was eerily warm at 3am when i finished! Compared to the previous night when it was 3° at 3am... blustery now

We have had 143.76 mm so far this month (crazy). 61mm for May.
526.3 mm ytd. Quite an unusual year.

Dry as a bone here in Port Melbourne, sunny even.
We even managed to have a data flight in the Cessna out of Moorabbin.
It looks a bit heavier on the other side of the range, some might pop through.
Its really getting stopped by the force field today.
Pretty grey and gloomy here in Elwood. Wind did pick up for a bit before but seams to have settled down.

Bit of a meh day

Mt William has had 20mm since 9am (I'm wondering if that's accurate), but the rest of the state is pretty dry too.
The Malee has had up to 4mm, nothing else really of interest.

Yeh, really nice this morning.
Winds down and sun out, cooler than yesterday, but plenty mild.
No rain recorded at home for the last 24 hours. Not entirely unsurprising, I thought we might get something breakthrough the force field, but it appears nothing did.
