More records fall in SA and VIC as rain winds down
Although the widespread rain of the past two days has finished, storms and areas of heavy rain continued in parts of SA, VIC and a small area of southern NSW in the 24 hours to 09.00 this morning. Since then, virtually no rain has fallen.
In SA, a band of rain from near Tarcoola up to near Coober Pedy then across to the Flinders Ranges had more than 25mm in the 24 hours, mostly falling from storms on Friday evening. Commonwealth Hill, 90km NW of Tarcoola, had its wettest April day in a 76-year history with 36.4mm in the gauge, while the 54.0mm recorded at Mount Eba Station, 155km SE of Coober Pedy, was its highest in a history going back to 1914. Mount Eba had already equalled its previous record of 32.0mm yesterday - not a bad effort!
A broader area of rain and storms gave 24-hour totals mostly between 10 and 40mm through central and northeastern VIC into the NSW South West Slopes, with some isolated falls west into the Riverina. The standout was Echuca where the 09.00 daily reading today was 72.0mm, the highest April fall in the station's very long 136-year history which began in 1881.
The BoM tweeted today that up to 09.00 this morning much of western VIC had already received above its April average rainfall, with a large swath through the eastern Mallee into the North Country sitting on more than twice its April average.
