According to EC we have to wait for that trough to the west to cross us to get the next lot of heavy rain then that's it.

44m overnight in West End .. had some noisy thunder too!

Makes me want to cry seeing what's happening to the south of us. Hopefully what's still due to come in from the west will give us some more rain.

Mick, could you tell me what geographic points, width and furthest point from the dam wall that would indicate were your dam catchment actually is.

I am 6 kilometres from the dam as the crow flies and have had 105mm in the last 24 hours to 3.30pm (when it started raining at my place yesterday). Yesterday was 38mm and 67mm emptied out of my Nylex at 3.30pm.

Dam wall has recorded 38mm since 9.00am this morning see http://www.bom.gov.au/qld/flood/townsville.shtml for details.

For sure this is the best widespread rain for the H&LB this season. Consistent totals extending from the coast to the inland parts - hope the next 24hrs delivers some more before sliding south. Not a drought breaker but will hopefully drop a few months supply into the dam. Enjoy it guys. Radar looks good for another burst : - )

I think we will get around 1 weeks worth of water at this stage, if we can somehow snag 100mm tonight it will make a much better difference.

56mm here since 9am
