Certainly a fantastic start to summer for us here.

Would be pushing 70mm from this event so far. One place I heard is over 100mm.

Other places only down to 30mm.

It had stopped for about 10 mins but started again now. Itís a gully that runs down into Mooreís creek, thereís drainage pipe in the ground but it doesnít cope with a huge amount of water.

Ducked out n checked the gauge showing 89mm so far, but reports of 150mm around rocky so far.

The airport is only showing 21mm. The heavy stuff is pretty isolated. Not much here, has been all around us. I doubt we have had 10mm today.

A friend on Facebook from Bundaberg messaged me yesterday saying "Oh wow you're getting so much rain I see on the BOM radar "

Hardly got much at all and even in town in Yeppoon wasn't raining very hard in the afternoon . A few mm really.

Must have been mainly around Rocky/ not widespread / inland

Also need to move my rain gauge as the garden has grown a bit maybe blocking it a bit .

My place is the greenest I have seen in years. It is piddling down today with thunder to go with it.

I still don't have a fence around the back yard. I am so glad the fencers used common sense and didn't just pull down the front yard at the same time. Hopefully this week I will have my fences done.

83.8mm at home. Maybe some light stuff to come later. Also noticed some nice storms popping up out Emerald way. It will be interesting to see if it keeps building out there where the mids are drier.

I was hoping for another downpour before the change comes through but canít be too disappointed. The storms out that way still have some severity but definitely doesnít seem as conductive for as many storms around like yesterday frown

Hi all, had a great start to the season so far. 8 inches in October and then another 3 and half inches last week. Very green here. Looking forward to seeing more of the wet stuff.

Not a big difference for Yeppoon

Total For 2017
1070.6mm 116 Day(s)
Total To This Day 2016

1076.6mm 110 Day(s)

Looks like a return to SE winds next Wednesday... looking at GFS it shows a warm Christmas but a return to a little cooler from Wednesday.

Cannot remember if we got these SE winds this time last year. December I swear was warmer or maybe it was Jan- March.

It really hasn't felt too bad yet... though summer isn't really starting until the 21st right du to day length etc....

Whilst I won't object to a drop or 3 of rain I don't need some nasty storm. smile

Mate told me today that her house in Brisvegas now has water stains on the ceiling where the wind yesterday blew the rain up under the tiles.

You know how hot it has been when you find a newly hatched chicken in a nest that the hens deserted 2 weeks ago. Poor little fella. Don't know how long he has been there as it isn't something he could climb out of but it can't have been too long or it would have died. I have named him 'Miracle'.
