I believe there not in the catchment. I think the dam catchment is tiny. Unless it rains almost on top of it I dont think it gets much run off.

On a side note...check out the qld satellite. The cloud on the coast up to the tip of the penisula looks like smoke blowing in to the ocean...surreal.

I haven't seen it so active here for a while. Still thundering away, I wouldn't bet against round 3 overnight.

A lot of low level cloud in Ingham - you can see the light of town reflecting pink in the sky, and also a lot of far off lighting to the west, south and east. Surely we can't miss out!

Ironically, Robin Hood was a thief, and someone stole Townsville's rain. If only we could swear on here...

Time to move the radar back to Mount Stuart, still haven't had a decent drop since its relocation.

100% spot on BN! Cairns just picked up some good patchy falls last night which was beautiful but as a long time former Townsvillian I share your pain and shear frustration and wonder when the dry run is going to end...it will happen and probably with a bang but when...

Amazing to see 82mm fall out at Charters Towers, while we’ve only had 5mm at my place in Thuringowa.

Wish it would just hurry up and rain.
