Onto March...

Interesting stat on channel 7 news tonight: latest cyclone in the Coral Sea during a cyclone season to form was 7th March. Well looks like a new record will be broken this year, along with some high temperatures too. I haven't heard the temp stats for this summer yet but will be interesting.

PS - Rainrunner, in no way is that a dig at your post, just a dig at the weather (or lack thereof).

That shower yesterday brought a nice 27mm at Prossy mill and only 13mm at Mt Julian. Gee we've gotta get something decent soon showerly! There're talking about another El Niņo now and the SOI doesn't look good at all frown Hope everyone has other hobbys to do...

Doesn't look good Rainrunner, just checked the latest SST's, definitely warm water building up against the south American coast, el nino is on the cards. We have been lucky in Mackay, atleast we have had rain, but since Ive been here since 92 I don't recall going through a wet season without a cyclone developing in the coral sea. This maybe our last season here in Mackay, we are planning to move down south, goin to miss the rain, but ;looking forward to seeing seasonal weather again. 5 to 6 months of tropical heat each year is starting to wear a bit thin.

nothing even remotely decent showing up on any of the models atm,,, live in hope that we get something but as you say r.r not looking good. Heat and humidity in prossy and out at the beach today was oppressive and still is as I type this... That shower on Sat lasted for a bout 2.5 hours and that was it.. Shame because the rain hovered off the coast all day and finally receded to the south east.

I'm not angry, just disappointed...

That is quite the jump between March and April, from neutral to being on the El Niņo threshold.

The only glimmer of hope is the bolded sentence.

The forecast values, shown below in bold, are for POAMA's ensemble mean.

I just want something, anything, to cool things down and to drop the humidity! Forecast looks ok with a few days of 10-20mm but will wait to see..
