I am not getting too excited about it. It seems to pass over us to the north and disappear inland and south even quicker.

Looks like those up north will have lots of rain if it does happen.

Access too is interested in quite a large system developing out near Vanuatu and crossing CQ coast around Valentine's Day. With warm soupy waters I'd be careful what you wish for. Even EC is slowly showing signs of a low in the central coral sea

We are having nights of 27 deg or 26 every night, the average here is 23.6 normally.

Also 30 or 31 and the average is 29.2

We average 8 days of 30deg in Jan and Feb (8 in Jan and 8 in Feb)... we are going to be well ahead of it this month

18 days of 30 or higher in January !

Dew point seems down on previous summers but humidity seems about the same. I guess in previous years we had cloud and rain so that somewhat made in bearable even if it was humid as well.

I am going to predict 10-20mm for Yeppoon in February.

---

Elders weather site says

Current climate forecasts favour drier than average conditions for eastern Australia during mid-summer, returning closer to average later in February and early autumn. During this period, a stronger than average high pressure ridge is likely to reduce the effects of the south easterly trade winds responsible of bringing moisture onto the eastern seaboard.

Their 12 month forecast has us on near normal rain in March and above average in April. It also is going for a wetter than normal winter ....

Looks like we have rain coming here. I saw jetstreams today. Normally within a week or so of starting to see them I get rain.

Hope it falls on my place and not everywhere but.

According to GFS 20mm in 2 days time here...

Weatherzone says : Tonight 28C ....

Surely that is an error.

Probably rain at Mackay Bundybear. They have probably had a 1000mm so far this year.

I am becoming very disheartened. Looking at one of the dams today it is quickly filling with junk weed because it is so low and the temp in it is too warm. When, if, we get rain to fill it all that crap will die but will likely cause the oxygen levels to drop with it decomposing killing all the life in the dam. The only bit of green on the block is very limited to where waste water is. Even the weeds in the paddock are dying.

It has become an extremely dry argument around here. Except for when my new solar hot water system dumps all the water in it's tank at such a rate that it overflows the gutters. Apparently the new ones work far far better than the old one we had to replace. They get too hot so need to dump the water. Thank goodness none of my dogs have been laying under the spot it gushes over when it does it. We just have to cover half of it with shade cloth.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could just click and drag the country over to the right a little bit. We could have some lovely rain.



I see a little yellow blob out there, sort of looks like it is heading this way. It will probably get to the coast and follow it up to Mackay.

I got wet this morning. Probably not enough to do anything at all apart from make it a bit steamier. I did hear a bit of a trickle going into the tanks so that is better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick.

Hope we get properly wet though.

That would be very nice. Maybe I should do a load or 3 of washing, wash the car, water my pot plants? That usually encourages it.

I can not win. I got all excited about a big dark cloud and bit of wind coming. Ran out and got the washing off the line.

Yep. I got 3 spots but could see the property over the road disappear because of the rain that way. All of 500 metres.

Not fair. I suppose I should be grateful it is getting closer.

Still next to nothing. For all my luck I got 2ml today. Darling son came home to tell me he had a solid downpour at work today. Just down the road and round the corner.

Somehow the cloud that looks like it might bear actual rain has managed to move from the south to the north. Just. Yep, looking at the radar it is probably just missing my back fence.

I wish hubby would bring a dozer home and get rid of the bloody mountain over the road that seems to deflect the rain from us.

Ours has 1 panel and only loses a tiny amount. Drips into the ground (ground system, panel on roof). Doesn't heat if tanks is fully hot.

This one is a 2 panel system. Only a few months old. I rang them about it when it did this the second time. Apparantly the new systems are just more efficient at heating than the old ones. Our old one did a very occasional overflow excepting the last time when it was just running straight out. It was nearly 20 years old when it died. It wass cheaper to replace it than repair it.
