rain, rain and now more rain.

I was surprised on Sunday that the forecast rain had arrived, but as a mere shadow of the forecast "rain event". Bruce and Alison, from the Gosford/Wyong area called through for lunch, on their way back from Canberra. They had left Canberra in crisp sunshine, and then driven into rain the Great Dividing Range, north from Collector. But they also were surprised that the rain was not as heavy as forecast.

Well, it has now caught up with us.

This morning I registered 102.5 mm.
Over the previous two days I had registered 13 mm on Sunday and then 58 mm on Monday.
With the 102.5 for today, that is a total of 173.5 mm of rain since Saturday.

Since I started to draft this, and do a few other things, I have received a further 15mm of rain.
Expect flooding in the Upper Nepean River, and the Wingecarribee River, and of course, the Macquarie Rivulet (so look out Albion Park).
