Looking very poor - could be a zero event. We have some moisture this time but the synoptics have fallen over.

Have had 0.2mm's from a light shower just before 11am. Radar not showing much may only get a mm or two
from this event. :x

A fairly disorganised band of showers, but we're just under one now and it's surprisingly heavy - could be a bit more to this system after all.

Showers this arvo in the Dandenongs were surprisingly heavy. Been a foggy showery arvo with about 7mm so far. On about 115mm for the month which is near 5mm above average so that’s three months in a row :D

City’s about 2mm below its average so still needs another decent shower or two.

Next system showing for early next week with an upper trough which will give the north of the state a decent fall to finish the month :D Doesn’t look like much for the south.

Tipped out 14mm yesterday morning think this was for the start of the week,
Gauge is now more accessible.
Hope there can be more to tip out in the coming months.
That wind dried things out, but I'll be happy to see things wet leading in the the far end of the year..
Fire plan time..

Finished on 9mm. Might still get a shower or two more with a bit of instability next two days (despite the big high).

City needs 3mm to get to average. Be good if it could get there.

Upper trough for the next system. Is tending to wind back a bit, but still looks like 5-15mm for most northern areas. Touch and go for the south. It almost gets caught by a front so a tiny tweak could see a much better event. MDB is running way below average for the month (again) so anything that falls north of the divide is a positive.

Otherwise, fog and dew looks like the story for most of the coming week. Overall, pretty mild days.

17mm here last night. Rain continuously redeveloped over us for several hours to produce a nice steady fall. Makes our MTD of 51mm a little more respectable, although still below average.

Nice result Snowfall!

I can see the hits and misses quite well on the 24hr radar totals - we only scored 2 mm but much better a little north and south of here. 69mm mtd.
