OK......I been quiet until now. We're due to drive up to QLD on 4th Feb via New England Hwy. Getting married in Brissy on 7th Feb. I'm getting really concerned we may not be able to get through if these serious weather events continue. Don't travel on the coast road (thankfully), but my concern is the NEH up north. What are our chances we will be spared a nasty event in the next week that will enable us to travel without the threat of floods & road closures along NEH

If that low does as suggested by a few of the models then it could be a problem on the NEH. Try your post again in the Nth NSW SE Qld thread, they may be better to answer this.

Hey Lisa,
We have been drenched. Had over 210ml in the last 3 days here. Causeways all went under, they have resurfaced at the moment but I am told the bridge to town will disappear tonight.

Hubby got out to Moura, just took him 5 1/2 hours instead of his usual 3. What a happy chappy he is.

Well we have all heard about El Nino and La Nina, well I would like to add a new term that relates to this region. A 'No Raina'. It would see that Rocky and Yeppoon are in the grips of a moderate to strong 'No Raina' season.

Sandfly, we always think of you guys over there. Trust me - we all want you guys to get some rain. I think Vinnie desperately needs a storm before he blows his top. But unfortunately we cant help that our area is getting rain/storms etc. However tonight, there is not a drop in e-town.

It does indeed look interesting, however mother nature is certainly fickle and weather shield around emerald is strong. I will believe when I see it!!

Unfortunatley it seems as if the catchment areas are getting all the excitement, we would be better off with the falls happening right over Emerald!

Well when the low makes a more southern turn and we know it's path, then we might have a better idea. I don't like what gfs is progging, but they have been doing this for days now, every now and then they are going to get it right.

^^^^ yep agree. Not much change in every run - I think they may be onto something. GFS has got it right in the past


Edit to add: not right all the time but it does sometimes get it right

I know we got a good drenching this afternoon but to make the BOM STW!! No rivers or creeks in town so any amount of rain is a good thing. Raining again now steadily but after a neighbourhood bbq and maybe a glass too many
of australia day cheer I have lost the motivation to slosh out to the gauge with a torch.

I am extremely disappointed with the rain totals so far, as we have only received 3.9mm today. So much for GFS's rainfall predictions.

Ok weather watchers. . I am supposed to drive to rocky each friday from the emerald city, usually getting home about 11pm. . Should i take the chance today? Last thing i need is to be stuck on the road with 4 kids in the car. Any news or thoughts on both the road conditions and the possibility of being stuck in storm tonight?

Averages can be misleading, because all you need is one "unusual" event with a big total every few years or so and that will lift your averages. See if you can find a site that will give you median monthly figures, these would give a better idea of what the region actually gets.


Ok according to Weatherzone then the median rainfall is 895mm. Still sounds high though.

BOM says 20-40mm today.... hmmmm any idea of when this is supposed to happen ?
