52mm yesterday taking the event total to 154mm. I'm hearing some distant rumbles from the offshore cells, which look to be edging closer to the coast also.

Soooooo, when are those us of north of Brisbane allowed to whinge and complain about how terribly wrong all of the forecasts are? (insert sarcastic smiley here)


I must say the light show to the south was very impressive as we circled in the sky waiting for clearance to land into Brisbane airport last night.



Our grand total for this event so far.......... 0.00mm
Let's see what tomorrow brings for us, fingers crossed.

Yeah we are at about .5mm
Looks like the the Debbie damaged areas close to the coast might get wet.
Lots of landslip and creek damage behind the Gold Coast

0.2mm from a 2 minute shower around lunchtime today. Forecasts and models would indicate we're too far north and inland here to see any significant rain from this system. Maybe 5mm tomorrow if I'm lucky.

Yesterday's light to steady rain at times continued into the very early hours of today, with 25.2mm falling in the 24hrs to 9am. During this morning, showery rain periods began moving ashore and have persisted into this evening. 33.4mm has fallen since 9am.
Tomorrow should be a drier day here with just the occasional shower moving through instead, due to the system moving more northward.

Wettest place in the 24hrs to 9am was 156mm at Tuckombil (near Alstonville). Minor flood warnings still current for the Richmond-Wilsons Rivers and the Brunswick River valley.

Looking at Himawari, centre of rotation just NW of Brissie?

That's where the upper low (technically the middle level part of it) is.

The surface circulation is offshore and it's more in the form of an elongated belt of vorticity at the moment - see ASCAT satellite wind analysis at 7:02pm below:

is it fair to say these setups very rarely move north after having formed?

Don't need this... frown eek

It's bucketing down now, and the heaviest stuff is still offshore. Just came inside from rigging up a makeshift shelter for my smallest seedlings, so they don't get washed out of the veggie patch. Hope it holds up overnight.

The heavy offshore rain that I feared would come onshore has done just that. Plus the odd bit of lightning. I wonder how long the rain will last? So consistent. Many locals will be having flashbacks of the night of 'ex-TC Debbie' by now, just from the rain rate itself, and how it sounds on the ol' tin roof. I hope it doesn't flood.

33mm in the last 24hrs, taking the event total to 186mm. Am expecting another 100mm or so today, but the flooding shouldn't be too bad hopefully.

Stay safe up there guys. I have been in Sydney for the past few weeks for the Vivid festival. The weather in Sydney late last week was fairly ordinary however has eased up now to sunny skies. I have delayed my trip coming back to QLD due to the inclement weather in northern NSW fearing the highway could be cut off.

I have some photos of yesterdays fog that engulfed Sydney yesterday morning, would love to post a pic here if that's ok.

I can't wait to see it gleno!

Winds gusted up to 87km/hr at the Gold Coast Seaway overnight.

I still can't see a huge amount of additional rain that would cause widespread severe flooding. A few of the lower lying areas, causeways and creeks near the coast might still get some pockets of localised flooding (in addition to the existing flooding in NE NSW).
Of course if the low and trough hangs around closer to the coast than expected, rainfall amounts/flooding potential would become higher.
