Yeah gfs has between 100 and 150mm. If the locally heavy falls comes true then maybe some areas might see that or above.

What's out chances of a storm today. Will it really be only inland places like bom says. When I ask for our chances I don't mean just tsv. I mean up this way too.

I've said it before. This radar seriously overestimates the rain that is actually falling. It's been constant very light rain. Nothing anywhere near moderate like the radar is showing.

i think the radar has been out of whack for a few weeks since it went offline for two days. keeps showing echos over burdekin that are never there too.

again, another big failure tonight, rain to the north, rain to the south, nothing in between.

It poured in Mundingburra lastnight for a good half hour or so - could hear it hammering on my roof. Disappointed to hear that it wasn't more widespread because it seemed like a good old-fashioned torrential downpour. I wonder when we'll see one of those weeks where the rain doesn't seem to let up at all for a week or more. I miss those events.

I was under the impression that the intensity on the radar is based on rain drop size. Which was the case last night. The rain rate was not moderate but the drops where the size consistent with what one would expect in a moderate shower.

7mm to 8.30am so much for the 20 to 40mm.

I am over this bullshit lack of rain. Roll on sub 30C days asap.

24mm for me up here from a nice 2am downpour.

I was starting to get a little despondent with the lack of rain. We were seeing it fall all around us but none in the town itself other than a mm or two here and there.

With the dry season on our doorstep, the lack of any reasonable wet season is going to make the year ahead very difficult for the people on the land. Not much has fallen out west of us at all.

I can remember when Toowoomba was having big issues with water supply not so long ago, and it would be on every second news bulletin. Now there is a bigger city with as bad, if not worse, water issues and we hear nothing, not even a murmur outside of the local rag. If you want to know how important NQ is to the south, this speaks volumes.

Some people got between 20-40mm. So again forecast was accurate. Considering WATL only forecast 5-10mm yesterday for Townsville and surrounds, 7mm is within that estimate and others who had over 20 are even luckier.
