First time this year - severe thunderstorms are sweeping through Melbourne, including my area. Plenty of CG lightning and heavy thunderclaps - including one that sounded over my house - scarey!!
The good news is the 13mm rain in 15 mins here. It was a heavy downpour during that time.
The storms are now slowly weakening as they head further SE. (as of 11.18pm Melb time).
It has been good to get the much needed rain, and here we avoid the record of lowest rainfall for March for a number of years.
Wish my camera-video-phone was working - would have been a good video for those in NSW who are experiencing the same thing.
One drawback with these thunderstorms, if any of you have pets - keep them inside if possible during these events. My dog is hyperventilating like crazy!
