  1. Tassie has certainly been missing out on the rain this year – good to see some parts of thre Central Plateau had over 60mm yesterday.

    The map here is rain to date rainfall amounts prior to the storms on the 10th. The whole state is in the 0 – 20% of normal rainfall bracket for the year.

  2. All I recall was warnings upon warnings of fire weather throughout the summer with no respite. The last fire warning was just prior to this event!. Michael, or anyone for that matter, is there a map of yesterday’s rainfall event. Any reports of large hail?
