Raining in Civic as I speak

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

pea sized hail still hurts. got caught between the car i had just locked and the closed office door.

Hail in Barton – just finished

Growling Ferret 3:11 pm 20 Jan 09

Aww. the weather bureau made it sound like we were gonna get real “Wrath of God” type stuff…

Granny 2:56 pm 20 Jan 09

Nothing in my end of Gungahlin as yet, but we’ve got some black clouds coming over.

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.

okay, it’s back. Heavy but not hailing.

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.

stray 2:33 pm 20 Jan 09

nothing citywise…

poptop 2:30 pm 20 Jan 09

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

Perhaps there is more coming?

Fiona 2:18 pm 20 Jan 09

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!

Light showers of chubby rain passing through Southside currently.

My ants and bees predicted this one too, so I have my ummbrella…
