bit of drizzle about this morning, nothing heavy.
noticed the paper ran a story on tsv missing out on the rain, guess they need to fill space considering we were never in the mix to get any anyway. comparing a rain event in bundaberg to townsville is like comparing rain events between melbourne and sydney.

smoke and dust.
temperature inversion is trapping the smoke and dust in the lower atmosphere.

looking promising, tonights models backing up the system with some good falls locally. biggest concern with this weather system is a surface low developing as the upper system moves northwards, certainly dont want that happening.

models starting to come together with a deep upper low to our WNW, still looking good for a decent rain event, though i seriously dont believe we will get the 100-200mm forecast. will be happy with 50mm honestly.
more importantly, with the bundy system last week, this event now unfolding hopefully signs the weather is changing in time for the wet.

Still looking good. OCF is forecasting 80+ mm for Townsville over the next week.

Time to leave my dry season hibernation. Lookinh promising from Sunday onwards. The storm possibilities for my area look awesome for sunday. Ive had about 15mm all dry season. I got no water in my tanks. Bore seems that its dried out. This event if it unfolds as predicted or even vlose to the predicted amounts I will be happy.

system is starting to show signs of kicking in locally already. this arvo forecast upgraded to storm chance, but i think they will be south of us. light showers from east.
still hoping the upper trough remains well west of us, bring in a decent NE flow in the uppers.
