Loc: Between Bundy and Gladstone
I know this is not a wet season. We haven't even had one storm. Managed to have them all pass around us. Most we have had is a very edge of one.
Dams are more empty than full for the second year running. The little rain we have had that greened the grass is now long gone. Grass is more brown than green. My citrus that have been in for 20 years are dying.
It has got to the stage that nothing but minor flooding rain is going to fix things.
Daughter who has her horses and hour and half south from home has had to up their feed to stop them losing weight. They have had a few good rains down there but now the benefit of it is lost with no follow up.
Take forecasts that far out with a grain of salt as they often change with further runs. Fast running out of time for rainfall this wet season and longer range modelling is also looking quite grim for the cooler months and possibly as far as next wet season.
Welcome to the forum Dusty Rusty! Something has to give sooner or later, this is like the weather we get in the pre "wet" season months except at least we have the occasional storm to get excited about. Yes GFS is throwing its familiar "end of run" low/tc for us to get excited about. But we all know how quickly that can change. The MJO should be more favourable at that time which is a good thing.
