That map would explain why everything here is brown. Why my dams are the lowest I have ever seen them.

We could see storms today. We could hear them. And again we are bone dry.

It is a very very unfunny joke.

Comparing midday today with midday yesterday....

Rocky 32 deg feels like 31 , humidity 42 percent dew point 18 deg.

Rocky 34 deg feels like 36 , humidity 53 percent dew point 24

So it feels 5 deg cooler, 11 percent less humid .


Yeppoon 29.5 deg feels like 29 , humidity 61 percent dew point 21

Yeppoon 31 deg, feels like 33, humidity 73 percent dew point 26

So it feels 4 deg cooler is 11 percent less humid.

Funny how we can barely manage 6mm of rain, same system moving up the coast delivers 100mm+ falls in and around Mackay. Ugh. Bundybear, this is the least funniest joke everrrr. staaap

This is the warmest Feb in Yeppoon since 2006. Supposed to average 8 days of 30 -34 in Feb and the same in Jan. We have had 18 days above in Jan and 15 so far in Feb...

2006 was an El Nino year I think too...

Most likely induced by the extreme lack of rain events Vinnie.

I predict Coldfront should get a massive storm this afternoon.

Why?

Because I have organised a picnic dinner at the beach there with my daughter.

Of course my property will miss any hint of rain at the same time.

Wonder if this is the end of the extreme heat and extreme humidity now. I mean not like everyday we have had this but some have,today was very pleasant on the coast.

Last year about the same time we had a week here of 37 deg and it never got that hot after.

I wonder if Rocky will see any more 38's or higher heading into late Feb and March. Looking at the forecast for Yeppoon I only see 30 deg days nothing extreme.

Watch them vanish as they hit the range before the coast Vinnie.

Just like all last year.

If Yeppoon doesn't see 13.2 mm before the month is out, it will be the driest February on record (Records don't go back that far though to the mid 1990's).

Will beat 2005's 19.8mm

Also, Rocky's max temp is 4 deg above this month.

It rained here last night. I think. Or it could have been a flock of bats.

Only reason I know is I was out checking the chooks and felt drops fall on me.

Even I who am not fond of the bang and crash of storms would more than welcome one dumping poop loads of rain. The rain would make up for the inconvenience of stupid dogs.

Found that out when I thought to have a look as there is some cloud around.

I just use the Gympie 256 instead.

Gladstone was throwing false echos a fair bit the past week so maybe they are fixing it. I doubt it is down due to the planned doppler upgrade. Not in February anyway.
