Over 26ml of rain has fallen in parts of the Far South Coast.  

The Bom's Jaiwon Park says in the Bega area itself 15 to 25ml has fallen over the weekend, 
with nearly 20 mill at Merimbula and 10ml at Batemans Bay.

Narooma has received 26ml and Candelo 24ml.  

Jaiwon says the rain band has moved out to the Tasman, but instability in the atmosphere could bring some storm cells, maybe even severe. So keep watching the BOM.
