well it has just stopped raining about 1/2 hr ago, it was raining almost all night since around 9 pm. It seems to be clearing at the moment but looks like some more rain to the SW.
There is just over 9 1/2 mm of rain in the gauge.... the lawn looks very happy

from a max yesterday of 15, to an overnight low of 11.3
it is now 14.6
there is nil wind

Sunday Dec 05
9:30 am

another 6 mm in the gauge
currently 20.6, overnight low 14
light SW winds and mostly cloudy

Last evening was not good for the Albany Xmas parade
we had a couple of reasonably heavy showers which drenched everyone in the marshalling area, coupled with quite brisk winds - left many feeling rather bedraggled....
Thankfully it eased off and the winds dropped for the parade itself

oooh yes
The intrepid City of Albany ( unlike Perth, who do theirs on Sunday morning ) start the parade around 5pm
so it's getting on to dark....
and it's invariably windy as it is very exposed at the bottom end of York St in Albany

early afternoon on Sunday would be a far better choice

The bottom end of York St is so exposed you can smell the penguin poo in the wind that blows off Antarctica.
