Fingers crossed for some reasonable falls in the coming days.

It is not unusual for us to get some handy dry season rain about this time of the year, but it generally comes from the West, not the East.

I don't care where it comes from, as long as it comes.

Then bring on the chill I say!

Morning all. Two foggy mornings in a row. Massive rainfalls predicted (yeah right) for the end of the week. Next major event will be a single digit minimum and then nada until December.

Flood watch issued

Initial Flood Watch for coastal catchments between Cairns and Gladstone, extending inland to parts of the Burdekin and Fitzroy catchments
Issued at 3:06 pm EST on Tuesday 16 May 2017
Issue Number: 1
A surface trough is likely to form in the Coral Sea near the southern tropical coast on Wednesday and then move slowly southwest onto the coast, providing a focus for increased shower and rain activity.
Widespread rainfall totals of 100 to 200 mm are forecast to occur across the watch area from Wednesday evening through to Friday evening, with isolated heavier totals up to 400 mm possible.
River level rises above the minor flood level are possible based on forecast rainfall. Heavy rainfall may also lead to localised flash flooding.
Catchments at risk within the Flood Watch area include the Mulgrave, Russell, Johnstone, Tully, Murray, Herbert, Bohle, Ross, Haughton, Don, Proserpine and Pioneer rivers, and parts of the Burdekin and Fitzroy rivers. For those catchments affected by ex-TC "Debbie" during March and April, flood levels during this event are expected to be significantly lower.

Whatever rain you TSV folk get,I hope you get it over your dam catchment.
Whatever it adds to the dam capacity, is a bonus.

Models seem to of backed off the totals a bit overnight. More believable now.

I think most of the moisture will fall south of our area, but beggars can't be choosers.

I hope I am wrong and a big deluge sits over the Woodstock area and fills the dam up.

Storms to our NW. That is the sweet spot for us rain wise.

Heres to a big day of rain👍
