I installed the rain gauge I bought yesterday on the strength of the weather forecast for rain.
A good move on my part cos when I checked the gauge this morning it had measured 36 mls of rain which most fell in about one hour in a storm we had in the afternoon.
In my previous post I mentioned the discrepancy between the BoM official weather station and where I live (roughly 6/7 ks away from each other in a easterly direction).
Yesterdays rainfall was a good example of that when I measured 36mls and official rainfall for Toowoomba was 0.8 mls.
