EC wants a weak low now as well. And CMC looks then develops this low into something significant(but EC and GFS don't). Lets see whether an improved pattern is on the way.

Yeah it's funny one model says one thing and the others don't then it flips around has been interesting to watch the 3 models (EC,CMC,GFS) all switching. Something has to happen they can't all have a go.

Interesting....

There are no significant tropical lows in the region and none are expected to develop during the next few days.
In the slightly longer term, the northern Coral Sea is expected to become more active on the weekend, when a tropical low may develop in the northeastern Coral Sea. At this stage there is no threat to the Queensland coast.

Likelihood of a tropical cyclone in the Eastern Region on:
Wednesday:Very low
Thursday:Very low
Friday:Very low

My guess is it means an earlier monsoon...


I would like to see someone advise us on this question - anyone here with some talent on monsoon drivers in Asian area of influence?

All the cold means the Serbian High is quite strong also, which I am lead to believe also helps push things south?

yes the Serbian helps to drive the cross equatorial flow into our part of the world. the bigger the high, the better the push. aided with an MJO the recipe is delicious!

So basically Townsville was built in the wrong place for rainfall. Bet it rained more in that area before urbanisation.

Move to Broome and you will see that Townsville is lush with a high annual rainfall.

Dawgggg, went past Townsville Sunday & Wednesday and missed a huge storm here of course - lightning, thunder, 19mm rain and violent winds - neighbours house has a tarp over roof - a tree smashed onto it, but thems the breaks - but heck, Townsville looked like it should be situated on the Mitchell Highway! Fires burning in the hills added to the general untropical feel as well. You sure are a dry place.

I shared a house with some indigenous Australian's for a number of years, one of whom was originally from Townsville.

He told me that Townsville actually has a curse that rainfall would miss it or something along those lines. Not sure he was making fun of me or was just out of town on the "night of Noah".

From memory Broome is semi-arid spinifex country right to the sand on the beach.
Townsville has trees,grows vegetation easily.
I passed thru Broome twice in early 90s, my memory could be wrong.
