Rather Heavy Rain

November 3rd, 2007 at 07:50pm

If you thought the rain over Canberra and surrounds in the last little while was quite heavy and an awful lot of rain…well, you’d be correct.

Nattie and I were having one of our walks when the heavy rain hit rather suddenly after we had been enjoying a bit of light rain. We’re both a bit wet, but it was certainly an interesting bit of rain and storm activity. We found some cover a short distance from home for the majority of the really heavy rain, and then made a run for it when the rain eased off a bit (and one of the nearby trees started to look a bit unstable, to the best of my knowledge it is still standing minus a branch or two, but we would have had to wait another ten to fifteen minutes if we hadn’t made a move at that time).

Update: The weather radar also indicates that inland Australia is getting a decent share of the rain…of course it needs more, but it’s a good start, especially when you consider that much of New South Wales is not covered by a weather radar (see http://www.bom.gov.au/weather/radar/ is you don’t believe me).

    Hm… where do you go for your radar? It looks very different to the one I get at http://mirror.bom.gov.au/products/IDR403.loop.shtml.

    Just before the rain started Adam decided to go for a jog. Needless to say, he came back drenched.

    I generally use Weatherzone for the radar. I find it to be more useful than the version on the Bureau’s website.

    The Canberra radar can be found here.
