There's a severe storm warning out for Townsville, Woodstock and Rollingstone. Received notification via Early Warning Email. My first reaction was "yeah right!". We'll see.

That's good. Should be more of it. The number of times these warnings amount to nothing one can't be blamed for being sceptical.

had some coastal showers overnight, very coastal on the ESE flow. if only it changed just that little bit for once. monsoon not showing signs of kicking in until second week of January, lean pickings until then. Not going to be the worst Decemeber on record, but going to be one of the worst.

When the monsoon does come, it will be with a fury because all this heat has to fuel something.

Could be worse. The wet season 'failed' 7 years in a row in the 80's...

4/5 of the past years have been below average, the only exception being 2014 thanks to that April TC which brought 200mm of rain in a night, i was only 30mm above average that year.
