Lovely convergence, 10mm so far here, moderate rain getting heavier . East Trentham has a gauge on 50mm. It's flow is starting to go from southerly to south easterly. Parts of Melbourne might get another round this morning.

We managed to get under a convergence line last night and got 14mm. Just a few km away only 5mm.

Looks like a bit more coming.

Good to hear some more nice totals! 28mm here so far - hope it continues to get shared around.

That will teach me to guess only 9 mm in the gauge,
but still raining nicely.

I'm literally on the edge of this by 3 to 4km. Hopefully it edges a little East

The wind is getting nasty now. And temp of 3-4C last 14 hours, so it's lucky we're getting useful rain because in every other respect the weather is horrible!

One weird thing is the high barometer, rare to get good rain at 1020 hPa. Passed 30mm rain.

18mm here so far, and showery this morning. Currently 7c. Nice band of rain just to our west, very slow moving.

Torrential rain not letting up at all, looking at the radar it won’t let up for a while. Nearest weather station 2km from here now sitting on 52mm.

Got 10mm from the pre frontal. Quite good considering it's now clearly a western Melbourne event in the wrap around. Water supply dams now finally starting to rise and was hoping for a big rise after this event but it looks not to be. The Lerderderg river might be flowing now??

A couple of local flood advices on Vic Emergency app, so I reckon the Lerderderg is a good chance to be flowing hard!

Up to 33mm here - I can't believe I'm saying this, but that might just about do for now!
(Btw yesterday a farmer near Clarkes Hill (about half way between Daylesford and Ballarat) told us he recorded nearly 300mm for May :o .)

The Lerderderg was dry on the weekend at the gorge but I think it should start flowing now, the catchment was so dry before May that it’s needing a lot of rain to start flowing.

17mm and slow moving up. That South easterly wrap is starting to squeeze hard west of Melbourne.

Plenty of gauges now around 50mm on the southern slopes. East Trentham now 71mm and rising https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/I90581474

Just a bit too far west to get the best of that Rain, places like Ballan and Bachus Marsh would have done well.
Anyway 14mm's up to 9am but none since.

Melbourne wind obs suggest the convergence is inching east towards Melbourne.

Very dry catchments, the creeks around macedon/mt macedon still have fairly meagre flows despite up to 150mm in the last month.
We need a lot more!

44mm in Lara since dinner time which is great. Driving to Melbourne this morning I noticed paddocks full of water around Little River so not doubt they've had 50-60mm.

Nice fine balmy and calm morning after a couple mm in the bayside desert 🐪
Might go for a nice beach walk later 🌞
