A weak front and trough, bolstered by some strong winds and warm tropical air, brought some impressive totals to Victoria and Tasmania over the weekend.
Although the front that came through on Saturday and was weakening rapidly, warm air and strong winds combined to deliver some decent totals.
Northwestern Tasmania picked up some of the best rain in some persistent and strong to gale force northwesterly winds.
Sheffield managed 95mm in the 24 hours to 9am today, their best rain in nine years.
Preolenna in northwestern Tasmania took 123mm, their best in at least seven years.
Across Bass Strait, although totals were not as high, rain fell in drier parts such as the Wimmera and North Central Districts.
Redesdale took 35mm in 24 hours, their best July rain in 46 years of records. Bendigo's 27mm saw their highest July reading in six years.
Not great news for the snowfields though.
Warmer air over eastern Victoria preceding the rain has meant that snowfalls have been limited over lower resorts where rain and sleet has been prevalent.
From tomorrow however, a colder burst of air will begin to turn most falls to snow in the next day or so.
