Discussion continues here.

Nice day here, don't think it got over 32 or 33 degrees. Light streaky cloud in places. Dry, no sign of rain. frown

In townsville at the moment. Nice cool night and not much humidity around. Bit windy too.
Looks like it will be a bit windy everywhere for the next week. Yay the south easterlies have returned. 😟

Does anyone know if the resort, or someone on Fitzroy Is keep rainfall records ?.
BoM doesn't appear to have anything at all there.

Watching the radar, during moist SE'erlies shows how much rain they, and Cape Grafton get that doesn't make it over the inlet.

At 2.20am a blast of wind and rain woke us up and we scrambled to put up the heavy drapes around the verandah then went back to sleep without the cold spray. Just got up and see on Qld observations a 67km blast hit Low Isle at 2.10am. Rather satisfying to see the coincidence, though it would have been attenuated over land.

Well, I can't complain about lack of rain on the beaches tonight.
Too late (early) to check the nylex now. Should be 35mm-40 mm at a guess.

Yes, good guess. Just under 40mm at Kewarra. Nice and cool, so different to the last few weeks.

9mm for the last 2 days..

Its amazing how much better you Cairns guys and particularly Daintree/Mossman guys do with these SE showers....

Is it always like that or have I just noticed it more the last year or so...?..

I realize that we usually don't quite get as strong a wind during these periods....I wonder if that's it..?

We certainly need some more rain..What started as such a promising wet back in January is just fizzling to an miserable end..
