overcast and windy here on Horseshoe Bay, looks like rain on the horizon but blowing to hard from SE'ly

Yes OCF has certainly downgraded from 2 days ago however when OCF predicts 5 mm we can sometimes get 50mm here on Maggie so will have to wait for the actual event .

Have not had the chance to look at all the models, only forecasts from OCF & Weatherzone and the OCF totals in the last run have halved while the Weatherzone's predictions have doubled??? Go Figure??? When I lived near Mildura the forecasters would say when and how much rain and most times then were spot on as a lot of the weather they get moves in from the West in a nice straight line and I suspect is easier to model and monitor than our weather which also has coastal influences. On another note there is light rain falling at Mt Elliot. Not enough to stop dust yet but in the dry you take what it gives you. My own garden is like SBT's and needs a drink, but, I think I will roll the dice and see if nature can do the job for me this week. Be on a catch up watering next week if it fails. Last thing I want after a week of Irrigation is a "Weekend" of Irrigation on my own place. Bring on the Rain!

I'm pretty sure the only catching part of memopause is the mad cow bit Joc. wink

1mm in the nylex this morning but the radar is showing lots of activity over Ingham.

OCF continues to predict very little rainfall for the city (18mm over the next 7 days). GFS remains optimistic however!
