So I may have missed a decent window, but does anyone see me having a chance at a couple of days without cloud cover and a UV index of 2 or more in the next 3 or so weeks?

We've had a decent drop on the north east fringe today, solid first up early morning, and very windy. Too windy to have a fire the last few days (we sometimes get puffs of smoke blow down the chimney when it's very windy). All up about 6mm of rain the last 24 hours.

Before that, around 28mm in the gauge from this system over the last few days.

It's as if a switch was flicked on June 1. For a nice change, winter got the memo! The hakeas are loving it.

For a few hours this afternoon, the sun came out, with blue skies to our east. You wouldn't have thought it's the same day!

Plenty of ominous clouds to our west and south though. These brought some light, fairly brief showers later this afternoon. It's super chilly out, currently on 8 C.

Still a few showers about this morning, but colder than yesterday.
Most of the showers are in the east of the city.

The rain belt has done well.

Had a few dry hours early this morning, and definitely warmer, but drizzle was back before 9am.
3.6 mm already today.
Over 80 mm now for the week.
24mm in the can for June so far. A bit more than expected as we don't get much from these systems. 510mm year to date, ground plenty wet.

Wind has really picked up. It's not stopping the RAAF Roulettes from doing their training flights. If it was more pleasant out, I'd get some pics.

138mm here for June so far. Way above average so far.
(Love watching the roulettes!)

Lovely pics of the hakea blooms. Are they Hakea laurina or another species?

Nice looking garden btw.

Cold wet and windy (southerly) out here in the northeast fringes, although it’s actually currently sunny with blue skies. Won't last long judging by the dark clouds coming from the southwest.

The Currawongs are singing to each other across the yard from one end to the other, flying around back and forth as often happens when it’s been raining, or about to.

Rinse and repeat this past week or more. Ideal snow-season weather. We’ve had 61mm of good soaking rain since this day in May, but still nothing like the totals that some parts have received. Two of those mls have fallen this past day, 28mm in the last week.

Thanks @wernerk apart from a couple of deciduous trees for specific purposes, it’s an all-native garden specifically to encourage and protect native birds, including loads of little ones, such as Silvereyes and Pardalotes, along with numerous Honeyeater species.

We lost quite a few plants over our very dry summer here. Now in the process of replenishing.

Correct, they're Pincushion Hakeas. Gorgeous flowers. We have a couple of regular trees and a couple of weeping species of them.

Franga
Mushrooms are popping up everywhere now! Even in the middle of footy ovals.

Franga is saturated, and had to stop 3 times for the showers to pass to get the lawns done. Looking forward to a few hours of sunshine soon rather than 5 minutes worth

Where's My Jumper
Heavy freezing rain sweeping through the inner South East.
How do I know?
Daughter had her car serviced last week, they obviously replaced the wipers with wrong bloody model as they flew off the wiper arms this evening in Carnegie. Dad to the rescue and I got soaked and frozen getting them back on so she could make it home.
