LOL Scott.

Models are still holding strong with some rain activity over a few days starting later on in the week. Looks like Townsville's in the forecast, so it probably won't eventuate wink

I am terribly disappointed. Here I am, a tropical newbie, and this is what I get....nothing. The weather in the southern states was so much more dynamic, but dryer on the whole by a long shot.
Went through Gordanvale yesterday Ronfishes, hotter than the hills of here by about 5degrees and drier. I admired the golfers as I whizzed past in air conditioned comfort.

Haha kowree, I like how the greens are still a bit green though. Yep g'vale regularly 4-5c warmer especially when the seabreeze takes an extra hr or 2 to arrive. Slightly cooler mornings though as wanjina pointed out. .

WZ lowest temps are recorded as REALLY low. Surely this is a mistake...

You'll get your chance, but yes, the weather is far more dramatic down south mate. Unless you count heavy rain into what you call dramatic but we get that here too.

We had storms here two nights ago that weren't even forecast.

You are a really good chance of a TC in the next couple of years though. Airlie Beach got battered by two after I left there smile

Coldfront, I am not actually hanging out for a real live cyclone - I have seen the photos here of my partners place after TC Larry and it was horrible and he said it was extremely frightening. (Inland from Innisfail)
But, I think we all need adrenaline to rush through our veins every now and again and I remember watching cyclones on WZ and being unaware, as you are when you are living in Victoria, of the tremendous damage, worry and heartache.
However, some sort of weather variance and rain would be brilliant.
But,if a cyclone does eventuate, I will most certainly be glued to this channel and watching avidly.

It's funny you know, I once read comments from a member in Townsville ridiculing the severe weather in Victoria but despite living in the tropics for 23 years by far the most extreme events I have witnessed have been from cold fronts moving through Melbourne after a 40 deg+ day with one back in the 80's recording winds above 200 km/h. It's the speed in which they come through that is most amazing and you can see them coming.

...and yes, it's amazing how many people want to see a cyclone where they live until they have been through one . A few of my clients in Innisfail "wanted the excitement" until their homes were being torn apart and never want to see another.

The storm we had here a few weekends ago was about as extreme as I want it nowadays.

Nothing to report as usual..

Kowree..living in cyclone alley you will most likely get your cyclone sooner or later..lets hope not as bad as the 1918 one that reportedly left only 12 homes intact in Innisfail...
