Distribution of rainfall over the last week with the majority of rain from the thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon as recorded by the BOM.
Radar image from 17:40 showing the storms moving around the state. With the rainfall being extremely patchy, none of the Vic Gov SMM sites received rainfall totals higher than 22mm and quite a few of them <10mm. No moisture was detected at depths of 30cm with any of the sites as rain was absorbed in the dry soil profile above this.
