Saw some proper flashes and something brewing afar on my way home from our year end function just now.

Cool breeze in the air too.

Hopeful!

I’m guessing we had about 15mm in Norwood over the last couple hours. Decent!

Seems to be done for now, unfortunately. Anyone know when we can expect more?

Those figures come from a model that exaggerates extreme events, but the forecasts are definitely showing heavy rain: http://clients.customweather.com/1STWX/forecasts.php?wid=FAJS#tabs-3

Other models are showing substantially less rain: https://www.yr.no/place/South_Africa/Gauteng/Johannesburg/long.html
Hmm, the data errors in that model have gone beyond a joke now:

Fri
Flash floods. Mostly cloudy. Mild 23°C 14°C 17 km/h / NE 61% 21°C Low 525mm 92%

All happening in Pretoria East now.

Coming down in buckets. And it looks like a rave party with all the flashes going off.

Friends up the road just messaged to ask if our power is also off. Seems their house got a direct hit.
