A near deluge happens
So about 2am this morning I stirred in my sleep and heard rain falling. That happened more or less constantly until I got up about 5:30. Turning on the computer here was what the radar had to show. First the BoM:
By 1100 everything seemed to have calmed down more than somewhat. No rain was recorded between 1100 and noon. The following chart compares what I recorded and what was forecast by Time and Date in an hourly forecast.
I have updated that - but at noon there didn't look, on the BoM radar, to be much more rain around.
Our total fall was 26.4mm - fairly consistent with others records in this vicinity. I did check against my Nylex gauge at one stage and they were very similar readings (so on grounds of simplicity I will use the weather station readings as the official record).
