That is over 80% of your (Townsville) median rainfall for the year (1069 mm).

Unfortunately for you that is how averages work. Townsville has more years below average than above. It is the big wets that prop it up and they are few and far between. Not the ideal location to pack in 200,000 people.

That does not mean it is good rain at all.

Whats Bunderberg had? 3 flood events in 6 months? Im extremely jealous and frustrated at the same time that the Bowen to Cairns region continues to miss out on everything. Im sure you can understsnd having lived in these parts before.

Its actually funny seeing people from SE QLD say they always miss out, I bet everyones lawns are green down there.

You know shower events dont fill dams CF. We cant even water our dead lawns properly.

Regardless, its still again another year below average with no inflows into a poorly managed Dam.

We need real rain. Fast. 36C here at the moment.

It will rain again. I saw this in the early 90's in Townsville. Dry as a chip.

Not in Townsville, but in southern states they can.

You probably don't want to hear that we got another 80mm + overnight.

Now I have been known to go out on a limb and make predictions but this wet is going to bring stuff all by my reckoning. And yes the airport recorded that amount but no where near that amount fell in the catchment area.
