Unseasonal Weather

Melbourne was issued with a severe thunderstorm warning today for damaging winds and flash flooding.  The day started off warm and humid and at midday it was a very sticky 30 degrees.  Later in the afternoon the sky began to darken and by 4 o’clock the rain had started and by 4:30 the damage was done.  They are estimating that half of the month’s rainfall fell in that half hour.  Here’s how it looked in the city:
