Looks like some nice totals to our North, good for you all. Not sure on ours as the rainbucket was blocked until I cleared it this morning. I am guessing only about fourty mm.
Are we in for a Dry, Dry season. I am starting to think we will be......

Dormant,I'm sure there would be many more photo's posted if it were easier to do on the forum ...anyway nice to see your flowering specimen..I haven't bothered planting one..thought it would probably drown here and I doubt if I would live to see it flower anyway..lol.

Drove back from Townsville today and there was loads of water about starting from just south of Ingham. Was surprised to see so much water pouring out the cane fields at Ingham when barely a drop fell in Townsville apart from one random cell. Also the bridge was closed, from flooding I assume, at south Johnston RD bridge. The bugger was they did not have a sign up at the turn off on the Highway, so you drove all the way there only to have to go all the way back.

Got home to a huge 8mm in the gauge for 3 days. At least it will keep the grass green a little longer. Last year the grass was all but dead by this time.

Looks like my low DP readings for the past week are due to a sensor issue. I have not pulled my WS apart yet to see if there is something clogging it up. Looked online and it seems that you do need to replace the temp/humidity sensor more regularly in a humid environment. Current DP is -38c

I'll second that Scott.
I call it pommy rain. I worked in pommyland for a year as a young bloke and the drizzly rain most of the time just about drove me nuts. It would rain all day and maybe 4mm.
Either rain properly or wall to wall blue sky and sunshine for me.

Nice, steady rain this afternoon here in the city, 6mm so far in the gauge.

We should see reasonable shower activity in some places over the next couple of days before it all moves to our north. Sunday onwards looks dry for a few days!

I am RF, this totally sucks. Only chance for some rain here is today then zip for the foreseeable future. Maybe something about mid week, maybe.

still loving every second of it. And that won't change any time soon. Feel a bit sorry for the tourists on the reef though. They are having a rough time

Well, the dove orchid predictions were just about right - it did rain on the 8th day but maybe it was going to anyway. I'm not going to advise the BOM on the strength of it but will take note when it flowers next.
So, 71mm for last four days - short sharp showers, quite nice really.

Do I dare say I'm already sick of this windy rain. 57mm and the begonias and impatients are rotting in their roots. Lifted and potted the ramains hoping to avoid restocking from Bunnings at $10 each colour.

Over these SE'lys already. Have recorded rain 7 days this month for a whooping 8.6mm. Really windy night last night too, kept waking me up with the noise from the big trees. Not a breath now.

Looks like that is it for 8/9 months. frown

14.5mm overnight, taking me 23mm over the monthly average so far. Looks like we are in for a few dry days ahead now.

Back from Airlie/ Proserpine. Now have seen what a Cat4 cyclone can do. Nothing but praise for the people of Proserpine, at other cyclone responses I have gone to a lot of people have a " it's all about me" attitude, in Proserpine it was an " all about community/ others" attitude. Absolute privilege to help them out.

No winds out here, only noticed them starting around Lappa last Thursday on the way to Cairns. Glad we're not getting anything more than our lovely Chillagoe breeze at the moment.
Days are perfect 30-33 and nights down to 19-ish in the early morning. Clear skies frown Good for the observatory though.

So there's TC Cook over east, not coming our way. Looks like Vanuatu is right under it.
