So, what does it take to have any decent rain around TSV?

In Ayr we have had only lousy 5mm so far. smirk

Do I sound disappointed?

I am. frown

If you had to score the media coverage and their knowledge you would give them 4 out of 10. If they actually educated themselves with some basic concepts of cyclones it could be so much higher. Having any old reporter, reporting from the scene is just a recipe for confusion and bad coverage. If only they put knowledgeable people in the roles for these systems.

Sorry to say but I can't see it happening. It has gone further south again, so probably the worst we'll get is a flooded Bruce Highway down south preventing things getting through for a while.

Yeah I was thinking the same like I said I was just looking at anything to grab hold on and run with. Yeah kids could have gone to school yesterday and today I think. I have flown home from work in Darwin which is fine it just gives me another 5 days home with the family before I have to go back which is awesome. however the way it was looking they had to I suppose be on guard however they pulled the trigger on some things probably a bit to early but you get that. I have only lived in the north for like 8 years now but in my time here there has always been a late shift to the south either just before or on impact with the coastline. It has happened every time I have seen and was what I was expecting with this too and of corse it did. Anyway anyone out there in the red zone make the most of it and enjoy because you never know when it will be back and how many times you think that it is game on only to be left disappointed again and again and again. Even at work on Curtis Island thought it was game on and nope Yapoon then earlier this year in Darwin then nope Tiwi Islands then gone straight past. That's the story of my cyclone life always close but not close enough. Jesus sounds like my real life to hahahahah

All this has really done for Townsville is cost us a bunch of productivity by over-reacting too early, closing the schools when it was too early to call and forcing workers to then stay home.

Latest River Heights for Outer Harbour Tide * (Mackay)
28/03/2017 10:56 6.64m (peak height)

the level is falling very slowly now, however there is the possibility of it rising again depending on the movement/size of the cyclone

Debbie's backend is going to be nasty. Already in the lead up to crossing Hamilton has had that 263km gust from the curving around onshore flow for them which gave Airlie a bit more of an offshore flow.

Once that swings back into the backend onshore for Airlie I would imagine it will pack an extreme punch.

Destructive winds are theoretically still possible for Townsville
There is a special description for this type of scenario but I forget what it was

Katabatic (downslope) winds from the escarpment to the SW of Townsville. The closer to the mountain you are the worse, so perhaps Kirwan, Kelso etc might get very strong SW winds.

This situation happens a lot where I live (Wollongong NSW) and I have found downslope winds to be worse at night.

That was the funniest live chat ever - that poor nincompoop reporter standing in the rain doing a spiel and being arrowed harshly by rain - gobsmacking stuff. The fella playing cards earlier was tops though with his take on TC Debbie. Bugger of a system - sorry for all going through it.

The 263k/h wind gust, and 195mm in an hour rainfall figures are quite extreme and I'd expect would easily meet 1 in a 100 year event criteria for the specific locations.

Of course there are more than 100 locations around Australia. And more than 10 different event types. So more than 10 1 in a 100 year events per year.

The 195mm rain per hour has been ruled out by Bom as a malfunction.
