Heavy rain on SE SA and Western Victorian coasts
Storms in NSW
A small low pressure system which developed southwest of Adelaide late yesterday moved down the South Australian southeast coast this morning bringing heavy rain and strong winds as it passed. Cape Jaffa recorded 37mm between 3am and 9am, while nearby Robe recorded 43mm in about the same time. The low then brought falls of 20 to 30mm along the western Victorian coast as it moved off to the southeast.

In NSW, an area of storms crossed the Central Tablelands and upper Hunter Valley, producing  hail around 2cm diameter at Kelso, east of Bathurst, and causing blackouts in the city due to lightning strikes.
