May as well start talking about the dry season which pretty much started after TC Debbie's dregs went through here. Just 4.0mm for April so far after 351mm last month.

Yay. I am not alone. I thought CQ had evacuated. grin

Don't you mean the continuing dry season? One rain event for an entire summer does not a drought break. I had been so hopeful after the deluge we got but since then nothing.

We did have rain about a week ago. I could hear it on the roof but it was so fine that you couldn't see it. Only reason you could hear it was the wind that was pushing it.

I am waiting for it to be a bit cooler before I take the chainsaw to the dead tree bits.

Yeah could have statted the dry season thread a month ago. I'll get more dew in the gauge next month than the rain I received this month.

If you put up a dew fence you'll get enough for a row or radishes at the very least.

That is because the cyclone was an anomalous event.

I still believe we have been in a dry type situation for several years now. It has only been a few anomalous events that get us through.

I was going to put up a bee hive for some honey dews.

That cold air has pushed through Bundy overnight. Should be quite brisk once the sun sets tonight.

I just hope this series of dry years breaks soon. We did not get even one storm in the season. Just the very edge of a couple. Without those and the occasional bit of rain we did get we would be buying water regularly.

Many people down here were buying it in often. I might look at putting in an extra tank yet but without rainfall to fill it........... I already have 3 for the house and we are careful with water usage.

Far too warm at night for May. So far every day and night has been above average.

Wind feels cool though.

It always starts raining for me when I am heading in or out of town. Then it rains nearly all the way home for me to arrive home to nothing.

A mere 3 mm in my gauge. One of those weird days when Rocky was cooler than the coast.

Nice to have some more average nights. Getting to about 16deg now.

A lovely 27mm from this event. A cutoff low and trough are what is forecast to bring rain and storms late next week. Exact positioning of that cut off low will determine how much rain we get.

We got about 30ml from that lovely drop of rain. Greened it up again.

I will believe we get rain when it falls from the sky.

Even with the horses gone I don't have a lot of grass. I do however have some very healthy roos and lots of them.

It is amazing how much grass they eat. In the side yard I have left my chicken cage. The grass in it is a good 6 inches long. All the rest of the yard there is mown right down.

Really humid down on the beach this afternoon, yeah only 23 deg but you could feel the moisture. Wasn't sweaty but the air felt heavy.

Keppel Kraken closed for nearly all of May due to as the sign puts it "upgrades" . Looks like cracks in the concrete being repaired.

0.6 deg above average day temps so far

3 deg above for nights.

Hope we see some colder nights soon.


Last winter was so mild we had a few days we had fans going . I remember one strange day last year it was so humid in the morning we got some showers and then in the afternoon we got a SW change and it was cold.

And this

https://www.themorningbulletin.com.au/news/bom-radar-reveals-400mm-deluge-for-rocky/3178218/?ref=hs

Radar images show a large swathe of Central Queensland is expecting 150mm in rain over the next four days, but that dramatically rises to more than 400mm in the next eight days, coinciding with the arrival of a huge upper-trough on Thursday.he images show Rockhampton and surrounding areas are expected to cop the heaviest falls as the entire state braces for the biggest rainfall event since ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

Since when has Mackay been in Central Qld?

All the models I have seen show CQ will not get that much, it will be mostly north of the CQ area.

Yep. Hubby got all excited by the news we were going to be drenched. 15ml isn't quite what he was hoping for though.

I can always live in hope that we get more.

The most I have seen is about 50ml for rocky and south so I think it is the Bully that can't read maps or the fact that journalists and articles are shared round the news syndicate.

It is a lovely sunny rather warm day here today. Good time for me to be getting jobs done.

BOM Yeppoon forecast has 20-40mm on Thursday and 35-70mm on Friday.

Just mowed the lawns today. Although not extremely long there was growth and they still are growing . Was expecting them to have slowed down but with the 3 things needed for growth (humidity, warmth and rain ) still there it has kept it growing.

Just after I finish the lawnmower throttle lever broke lol. Oh well.

A lot of people out mowing today. Thought i'd get it done rather than have to wait for the rain to end.

Edit: also 12 mm so far

I guess it is rain here in Yeppoon as it is constant but not very heavy, kind of reminds me when it rains in the southern states. At least it will soak in.

35mm for me , Bundaberg Alert had 109mm, most last night between 6.00pm and midnight. Bundy looked like it would miss out on most of it as it went around us for much of the day. The airport had around 56mm so a very timely soaking after a dry April.

Is it normal to have SE winds almost every day of the month? Whenever I check weatherzone the wind direction for what seems like forever is SE for Yeppoon.

23 deg here but sort of cool humid.

Looking forward, atleast a week of boring weather ahead. 18 - 27c
Usually we would have had one night under 10c in May, it doesn't look likely.

Around 20mm for me, a manual reading as my PWS is having a whinge and didn't record any of the rain that fell. I think it needs replacement batteries.

2.6 deg above average for nights here. If this continues into next month it isn't going to be much of a winter.

Days aren't much above but nights for some reason seem to be so high .

No further wet weather here.

Not much to report but last night and today, it's humid. You can feel it in the air. It's not like sweaty in summer but the air seems to have humidity in it still.

If i believe the Accuweather site the pattern won't change for another month before we see night temps drop.

The weather is just weird. I woke yesterday morning to the floors feeling damp from the humidity.

My poor chooks don't know if they are laying or not.

I can't wait for winter.

I was out and about today and I thought it was just me, the humidity felt like back in early March again . Had to put the fan on earlier this evening. The only difference to March is the sun doesn't have that same intensity mixed with the humidity like it did back in March.

The Accuweather site I use now says in a week we should see cooler temps. Wait and see I guess.

Is it just me or does the weather pattern feel like last year ?

Big rain even after no rain for weeks(except 3-4 months earlier, think last year it was July)

Still warm in May. May 27th was 33 deg last year I know this it was my mum's birthday. This year we have had 27 deg just a few days prior to this

Starting winter cold next week (similar to last year right on the 1st of June) but only for a couple of days

If we have a mild shorter winter again and a similar summer it will almost be exactly like last year.

One thing I've also noticed is Yeppoon never seems to get summer rains until late Jan - Feb , not in December much, though that could be normal ?

I remember years when it was cool in Yeppoon until early October and winter had 5 deg nights for a week.

Looking at the BOM Meteye and smack bang on June 1, it thinks the feels like temp should be lower with ESE winds on the coast in the 40km/hr range.

Went walking this afternoon and nearly worked up a sweat ! BOM said it was 23 feels like 25 humidity 73 percent. I can put up with that in summer but at this time of the year there is not much wind.

You can thank my hubby for this weather. He knows a certain way to bring cooler wetter weather.

Just take a weeks holiday with the plan of taking me camping. Works everytime.

Bit of on and off drizzle here.

Some decent rain would be very nice. Last week we had a very light shower or 2. Not enough to wet the ground. Typically the road near the shop was drenched with puddles.

I am very grateful for the heavy dews we are having as it is keeping the grass green.

Not sure what to call this season but it's not winter. Muggy days and warm nights. Feels like April/May.

Got too hot with my blanket last night , dropped to 15 deg here , that's 3 deg above average.

It barely dropped below 19 degs at home for most of the night as warm tropical air came down ahead of the trough. More typical of Cairns winter temps.

Yeppoon reached 26 deg yesterday (5 deg above average) and Rocky 29 deg (6 deg above)

Now Rocky averages 23 deg with 10 at night in July if you look at the latest forecast perhaps on the 13th (if it gets cooler than forecast) other than that all above average !

Yeppoon reached 18 deg this morning (6 deg above average) and should be around the 21deg day 12deg night range. Perhaps on the 13 th we might see this. Currently saying 21 deg on July 12 and 13 but nights 1-2 deg above.

And so far Yeppoon is averaging 2 deg above average for day temps and 3deg above for nights.Rocky even worse 3.4 deg above average for days and 3.8 deg above for nights.

The weather for Rocky is more usual for September I'd say.

I hope we aren't in for a summer like last year as last winter was warm though not this warm.

Just hit 27 deg in Yeppoon !

How come Yeppoon is warmer than Rocky today, it's usually the other way around? (so far assuming no temp rises upcoming).

Well it's 21.6 deg which isn't too bad but the dew point is 19.2 deg and relative humidity is 86 percent.

Wasn't pleasant taking the dog to the beach, almost felt too warm .

I wonder if the heat /humidity is going to return quicker eg August and we will see 27 deg days sooner.

It's like the last couple of years winter has been warmer.

Just spent a couple of days camped down at the beach. Still shorts and tshirt weather. Slept at night with half the windows and the door open on the tent. Only a light blanket on to keep the chill off.

I was hoping for cold. But on the upside there has never been so many crabs in the creek before.

This feels strange apart from not having the fan going we've got all the windows open and doors. Normally a chill comes through the air at night and we shut it.

Walking the dog this morning was awful. Humidity was so high with sun shining feels like temp was 24 deg to 25 deg . Only wind was a light Westerly. The sun felt intense too. Yet the UV was not extreme . Only relief was right next to the water.

At 1030 feels like temp was 27 deg frown thanks to humidity.

I found Yeppoon's weather it's gone to here :

http://imgur.com/a/Jxw6c

Wonder what's causing the above average temps here but not in Brisbane?

Rocky is currently averaging for minimums, not 1 or 2 deg above not 3 or 4 but ....

Average This Month
14.2įC +4.6įC
Long-term Average 9.6įC


That's crazy ! 4.6 deg above for minimums . Gonna need some cold nights to drop that down.


Tonight in Rocky should be 7.4 deg above average ! But... Wednesday finally might come close to normality.

Can't even get washing dry, no wind, no sun, humidity on 80 percent or above all day.

Wouldn't be suprised if we we hit 19 or 20 as a minimum tomorrow morning frown

Tonight is chillier. Of course since the weather is sort of overcast, dampish I am painting. I had to turn the ac on to heat to dry the poly filler.

Pity there is no rain for me out of it. I had such a small amount of it I could here the individual drops on the roof.

Forecast maximum of 23c yesterday hit 26.5c, today forecast 24c sitting on 26.4c. Maybe tomorrow they'll get it right, or atleast 1c closer lol

I received 1.3mm here at home.
Models showing a proper winter setup in a weeks time or so. I really hope so.

Finally a drop in humidity. If Yeppoon is getting 24 deg maximums later this week with 15 deg minimums what happens in September? 24 is more of a September temperature.

Perhaps, and I'm hoping this doesn't happen, we could be in for early heat come September.

A towel was left inside and because it still is so humid in the dry season (isn't stifling hot though) , the towel has got mould on it.

Crazy . That is more of a warm season thing.

Seems to not only be affecting the Cap Coast but Mackay and Townsville all have warmer than average nights and days. Such a dissapointment after a warmer than normal summer. It feels like it never is cooling down .

Miss those 8 deg Yeppoon mornings frown followed by a DRY low 20's day.

If the BOM data is correct then Yeppoon had a colder night than Rocky. Not sure why... Also still above average in Rocky last night as min average is 9.6deg , temp was 10.7deg. Perhaps it was warmer because of the wind in Rocky.

I am not getting up early tomorrow.

Yeppoon never seems to drop lower than 7 or 8deg , maybe one year in the last five , it has been 4 or 5 deg but just one or two nights.

Could be because we're close to the beach. Having said that you're close to the beach and getting 5 deg in the Wide Bay area.

Always seems they predict higher in winter than we actually get.

It's due to the computer program and modelling they use. It rarely gets minimums right in central and North Queensland.

Interesting but could be wrong.

Looking at the Accuweather website and it predicts that from August the 20th Yepppon will heat up. It has Yeppoon on 28 deg for the first few days of September. Which would mean temps over 30 for Rocky.

Wish we had a closer to average winter with less above average temps. Feels like it never cools down much for long . Yeppoon should have 3 solid coolish months. Feels like we've had 3 weeks.

Not sure what just happened but the dew point just dropped to 12.5 deg and the humidity to 54 percent, was 74percent just before with a dew point around 16/17 deg.

Wind is still easterly and didn't change. Changed around 1pm http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDQ60801/IDQ60801.94373.shtml

Give away. One drought. It has well and truly outstayed it's welcome.

The poor son is tired of me banging on the bathroom door 60 seconds after he turns the shower on reminding him that it hasn't rained.
