Some good falls there SB. Just started to ease off here. If the forecast is right we should get another 5 mm or so tomorrow.

Did you hear any reports of snow around Lithgow this afternoon?.

I was watching the qualifying for the Bathurst 1000 when one of the commentators got a message from Grant Denyer saying that he was driving through snow just out of Lithgow. Might have been a bit of Sago?

That would have been around 4:30 pm.

Great drop of rain yesterday & overnight for a total of 17.5 mm. Hopefully some runoff into farm dams & tanks. Will be good to enjoy some dust free days!

That's excellent to hear Ambient.
The smell of rain after that long must have been wonderful. Hope you manage to get a bit of run off into dams.

I will have a drink to celebrate (bit later through, otherwise my wife will think I have a problem!)

And listening to the Cockatoos & Galahs screeching & carrying on while hanging upside down in a tree having a bath was something I hadn`t seen or heard for a while.BigGrin

So glad you had a good downburst ambient

I had a look at climate online and l am amazed that little ole Forster has a really decent climate record dating back to 1896

The search for the last rain event shows


11th OCT. 34mm
12th OCT. 13.4mm
13th OCT. 16 mm

3 day total around 63 mm.

The mean for OCT is 78.7mm

Not bad at all with another 2weeks to go before the end of the month. ThumpUp

Not a bad start for October for your part of the world, hope it continues Mellow

Rainfall records go back as far as 1881 here, other stats only go back to 1966. The mean rainfall for Oct is 62.7, so we are only 25% of that so far.

Haven`t been to Forster for years!. Spent a bit of time there in the past. Used to go deep sea fishing on the "Double D" or hire a boat on Wallis Lake. Don`t know if Pinky`s Ribs in Tuncurry is still open, they had the best Pizza & Spare RibsDrool.

Warm day yesterday reaching a high of 32 after 10 overnight.

Heading for a top of 36 today, already 23 degrees at 9:00 am with wind from the NNW at 13 knots. Humidity is up due to the the northerly at 55% & the possibility of a late storm this afternoon.

Reached 35 degrees yesterday at around 3:00 pm. Had storms roll in at 5:30 pm with wind gusts to 24 knots bringing some dust with it followed by some thunder & lightning. Temp dropped 12 deg in just over half an hour from 30 to 18.

Measured 3 mm of rain for that event followed by another short storm at 9:30 pm with another 0.6 mm.

Set the timelapse camera up looking south at 5:00 pm & recorded until 7:00 pm. There were some spectacular lightning bolts around but only managed to capture one on the video.
