And wind too I hear ? My suegra from Santiago is down staying with us at the moment and is worried about it, sunny down here in Loncotoro. A fair bit of rain last few days though.

Yes, more win than usual, although that's not saying a lot.

The wind may have been worse than I thought, when I went out into the garden there were a few things knocked over and when I looked on facebook and whatsapp there were some trees down blocking roads in our area.

just hit 500mm so far year to date down here in Puerto Montt, with the rain over the last few days, about 16 percent less than an average year.

Did you get much rain last weekend Britkid? If current trends continue PuertoMontt will be lucky to get to 1000 mm again this year, although the rainiest months of July and August are still ahead of us. 535 mm year to date here, a 24% deficit on a normal year

There has been quite a few days this month where it rained for some hours and overall we have had a lot of rain this month. I wouldn't like to guess how many millimetres.

I hear the ski resorts are opening outside of santiago. A good base in june typically makes for a nice long ski season, and keeps me from rock surfing late in the season.

Rain? You people seen nothing yet.! Japan is having a heaven break a loose type of rain falls, starting from the south island of Okinawa,Kyushu then into main island we are gettin' 100 plus mm of water per hour. Drainage manholes gets filled in a flash and seen water shootin' back up through manhole cover. Heard on the news that off Peru's pacific, the el Ninya and then el Ninyo effect are causing this devastating rain fall!

Tokyo has the world biggest underground water collecting reservoir but even with that capacity, it gets inundated by its massive rainfall, see pics belowhttps://www.google.com/search?q=Tokyo's+undergr ... 41&dpr=1.5

Wow, that underground water facility is impressive. They certainly know how to build impressive Engineering projects in Japan, their highways were impressive too and made an impression on me. Valley? , no problemo just build a bridge or viaduct over it. Mountain? No problemo just put a tunnel through it, there's some serious construction there for such a mountainous country they just put highways anywhere.
Yeah the heaviest rain I experienced in my life was in Japan, like 500 mm in 12 hours I think or something like, all day it just Bucketed down, that, that was 20 years ago and I still remember that rain, and have never seen rain like that since. In fact heavy sustained rain in Chile is not that common from memory, we get short bursts sometimes but nothing like Japan or even west coast Alpine areas in NZ.

Think we got our first flooding rain of the year frutillar. Ground is saturated and we have had a pretty steady soaking rain all day thst is now sitting on the surface in places. Lots of puddles to play in.

Good thing chile is built on the side of a hill.
