Guessing another 100 mm overnight, rain tanks overflowing for the first time in 3 years. Very happy now.
Local flooding in Sarina overnight with what looked like a metre of water over the road at Chef Express on Grasstree beach road.Photos on Facebook tell the height well.

Sorry to copy and paste but the below sums it all up. Good falls around the district

A near-stationary low pressure trough located near the state's central coast has been producing heavy rain in the Mackay region since Tuesday evening.

The heaviest falls occurred in the moisture-laden onshore flow just south of the trough, where Sarina collected 304mm and nearby Sucrogen Weir received 273mm during 24 hours to 9am today.

Mackay Airport recorded 230mm between 6pm Tuesday and 6am today, which is more rain than they saw during November and December combined. It is also the airport's heaviest daily total in at least 21 years.

Mackay south has done very well. Mt Julian on only 16mm for the year so far which probably the lowest in the whole CC&W region. Hopefully our luck changes today...

In Feb 2008 we had that significant rainfall event where 610mm fell in the 24hrs to 9am on Feb 15 at a station (Mackay Alert) only 3.5km away from the Mackay Aero weather station... Unfortunately the Mackay Aero weather station failed and did not record this figure frown. From memory the majority of the 610mm fell between the hours of about 3am-7am on the 15th. shocked

INITIAL FLOOD WATCH FOR THE PIONEER, PROSERPINE AND DON RIVER CATCHMENTS

Issued at 12:37 pm EST on Wednesday 4 January 2017

Issue Number: 1

A surface trough located along the Central Queensland Coast is expected to produce enhanced showers and thunderstorms over the warning area through to Friday.

Widespread 24 hour rainfall totals of 150-200 mm are likely with locally heavier falls up to 300 mm possible.

River level rises above the minor flood level are possible.

Heavy rainfall may also lead to localised flash flooding.

Catchments at risk within the Flood Watch area include the Pioneer, Proserpine and Don Rivers.

See www.bom.gov.au/qld/warnings to view the current flood warnings for Queensland.

if there is one river on that list that needs a good flush out its the prossy river thats for sure,, It hasn't looked healthy for a long time and specially around the town area, Still a long way to go for that to happen though.

30mm yesterday plus 25mm early this morning for 55mm last 24 hours at Mt Julian which is great for the grass and plants but no run-off at all. I had my hopes up after the BoM warning for a lot more than that.

breezy all the rivers need a good flush. Don river was all sand at the bridge the other day.

yeah your right R.R they all do... haven't seen the Don running properly since the first year we arrived here. Here's hoping for all of the rivers in the whole of the north to get the good flushing they need. a resurgence of life and health.
