It peed down rain the other day. 100mm in an hour. Some places got up to 150mm in an hour around the Berserker region. My suburb got around 50 to 100mm in an hour. South Rockhampton must have got over 100mm in an hour -- judging by their flooded streets. But the airport only registered 25mm in their official rain gauges. Perhaps they should move the gauge, or have another rain gauge over the north side of town, and do an average reading. I doubt this town has had only 900mm for the year.

Can't help yourself can you?

That's not sarcasm, it's not funny and it's not relevant.

Still haven't learned to post a link yet I see Mechanic. You should ask an adult if you want to learn how.

Of course Mechanic is hysterically wrong. Many places did get floods in Victoria over the weekend. My own rain gauge in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne recorded 93mm in the space of 48 hours. Many parts in the NE of the state had 200 mm.
In fact the forecast was pretty accurate except that it happened further east than was forecast which is actually pretty impressive.

So why do The Mechanic and Longy run such a campaign against the Bureau of meteorology? Maybe its something to do with their Global Warming denial  Grin Grin Grin


Grin Grin 93 ml in 48 hrs ..... only just 4 inches in 48 hrs.

that's not rain ......... it's mist.  Grin

Warning of a ‘threat to life’ as vast rain event bears down on southern Australia


SANDBAGS are being distributed and there are warnings lives could be lost as a “high impact weather event” prepares to hit.

THE Bureau of Meteorology has warned of a weather conditions that could threaten lives as Australia’s south east stares down what is being dubbed a “vast, intense, high impact weather event.”

Premier Daniel Andrews has urged Victorians not to put themselves in harms way and divert the stretched resources of the emergency services.

And it’s not just Victoria — just about every capital could get drenched. Parts of NSW could get “more than a month’s rain in 36 hours”. Victoria, Tasmania and NSW are now officially on flood alert.

There are now fears three months of rain could fall in just a few days across Victoria with 300mm mooted in some areas as a front powers through southern Australia aided by tropical moisture further north. The State Emergency Service is handing out sandbags in Melbourne for worried residents.

Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) senior meteorologist Scott Williams said much of the rain could come in one dumping, raising flooding fears.

“It is an event that poses a threat to life, there will be a massive amount of lightning, there will be roads cut, flood waters,” he said on Thursday.

“Those thunderstorms will gradually all weld into a massive, great rain band, and that band will spread down across the state on Friday night and Saturday morning.

“This is a vast, intense, high-impact event for this state. I think this event will turn farms into lakes.”  Cheesy

The BoM issued an unprecedented severe weather warning for heavy rainfall for the entire state of Victoria

As FD said, better to be safe than sorry.

They always forecast the worst possible scenario now, in order to avoid lawsuits from insurance companies.

And, they'll never admit they got it wrong, as that would be used in court.

It's all about covering their arses, legally.

Go without mowing the lawn for 2 months. Spring comes around and I have to mow the lawn just about every week.

Now who is being hysterical? The entire eastern half of the state got over 5cm of rain. Are they supposed to produce those rainfall maps before the storm hits? Or do you think common sense might be a god substitute?

The storms fronts the east coast of Australia experiences from time to time are a reason why you can't build an electrical network where your main sources of power are only solar and wind.

I have them on my facebook page. The good weather information they give goes unappreciated. Apparently, the critics don't like the Back of Bourke accent the storm chasers have when presenting their videos.
