yeah it was pretty heavy for 10 minutes at Holder, but I think it’s probably gone, adn the sun will come out and the grass will be dry by 5.

Not too concerned!

Fizzer in Kambah too; although the cockatoos are thrilled to bits and the trouble spot in my guttering overflowed.

Perhaps there is more coming?

There was really heavy rain (and hail) in Chifley. It lasted about 15 minutes or so. It’s only raining very lightly now I hope we get more this afternoon.

A few minutes of light rain at Barton, but there should be more coming throughtout the afternoon.

The BoM radar shows a line of storms heading south-east over the south of the city towards Captains Flat and the coast.

Pretty serious rain falling in Fyshwick right now, with the odd hailstone thrown in for good measure.
