30.5c here now and humid as hell....looking forward to some cooler weather over this next week.

HF,Looks like most of the showers on the radar are north of Cairns at the moment so the Daintree might be the hotspot this evening...

Got a croc scratching up already. I have noted a loose correlation between early nesting activity and and early o set of the wet. I stress the word loose though bjt it is worth noting that the earliest laying i have ever seen in the 11/11. This is not laying but still very early activity so it will be interesting to see if it pans out this time.

Funny you should say that Brett. I once knew an ancient old fella from up the Daintree who said something similar.

Bit of a change in the atmosphere down here today. A lot more humid than recent days and on the back of a predominantly south easterly. Feels more like the damp a North easterly carries.

Thought we may of seen a shower but it seems to be staying off the coast north of Cairns at the moment. Perhaps in the wee hours?

Models seem to of backed off a little on the rain amounts, but this time of year we will take what we can.

This is what hit home just before the south easterlies Simmo. People in Bundy complain that most storms go around but in two short years i have seen several absolute crackers here. The view from my yard on cup day.
