and Prossy could get another 500mm+ in the next week - in fact all coastal areas between Sarina and Bowen could get that. Interesting week ahead

Initial Flood Watch for coastal catchments between Cooktown to Mackay extending inland to the eastern Gulf River catchments.
Issued at 2:35 pm EST on Friday 24 March 2017
Issue Number: 2
Re-issued: Corrected
River level rises above the minor flood level are likely across the Flood Watch area from late Sunday. Major flooding is possible.
Heavy rainfall with daily totals up to 200 mm with locally heavier falls are expected across the Flood Watch area from late Sunday and into Monday.
This rainfall is associated with a tropical low over the Coral Sea which is expected to strengthen into a tropical cyclone and track southwest towards the Queensland North Tropical Coast.
Heavy rainfall may also lead to localised flash flooding.
Catchments at risk within the Flood Watch area include the Daintree, Mossman, Barron, Russell, Mulgrave, Johnstone, Tully, Murray, Herbert, Ross, Bohle, Black, Haughton, Burdekin, Don, Proserpine, Pioneer, Mitchell, Gilbert, Norman and Upper Flinders Rivers and Bluewater Creek.

Latest track map out has the system in the CS crossing further south. It's going to be a hairy ride for the next 48 hours. Buckle up!

I said 4 days ago to my work mates that Bloomsbury would be ground zero. I was spot on with Ului 7 days out so going with my gut feeling on this one too. Hold on to your hats Proserpine crew!!

You could be right AKM, the models seem to be shifting the coastal crossing further south at every update.

Hmm Think I will be cleaning up today. Still not called yet but best to make plans early I guess. I have been surprised at the wind we can get up here in the past.

looking at a few of the local community pages and finding it sad that a lot of people are bagging out those that are getting prepared and are taking this threat seriously. There are going to be tears for some after this event, no doubt about it and throwing caution to the wind and ignoring experts seems to be a matter of course for a lot of people in this area. Maybe it has to do with the transient nature of the Whitsundays location.

Agreed Breezy, the models have changed there forecast track over the last 24 hours bringing it further south, don't be surprised if we have a cyclone on our doorstep Monday morning.

haha I posted a similar post on the Cyclone thread a little while ago and just noticed you did the same here. Good you're keeping an eye on local obs too smile

Showers look as though they're starting to increase on the radar around the Whitsundays and wind increasing at Mt Julian too.

i don't comment to often in the other thread. Like our local area thread more although i keep up to date on the other... Personally I still favour a touch more south in the track to come

I'm sticking to my guns and saying a Whitsundays-Bloomsbury landfall. Even when the ridge grabs the big girl I think she will have enough steam to influence a more poleward movement and ultimately a more southern impact.

I hope not Seaforth! Have a beach house down there....not that I believe it will make too much difference in wind speeds if indeed my Bloomsbury theory comes true? Very short distance across Repulse bay from Seaforth.
