Something has to happen for TSV - so close yet so far. At least Paluma Dam should fill. Seems it is playing out just as ACCESS-R said it would...TSV in a gap with coastal precip only until Rollingstone where is has come ashore. Surely out of this a decent wet TS cell will appear before the clearing for you all there. Nothing in CNS either - everything south and west.

Tipped 34 mm out of my rain gauge at 8pm. Wicked AND it looks like Cyclone Alfred is forming in the Gulf and this cyclone is due to move EAST for a change ....... the change in the air quality today has been humongous
