Quite perplexing isn't it.

Some scattered activity streaming in from the ENE, hopefully this picks up a bit into the evening. The models continue to play with weak Lows in both the Coral Sea and GOC, as always at this time of year I wouldn't trust any model more than a couple of days out.

No, they just got the best of it. I would have been happy with 50-60mm, Burdekin got that, Towers more, Tsv just once again unlucky.

Will start to become clearer in next few days. Gfs forecasting 100-300mm locally grading up to 1500mm in the goc while ec is forecasting about 30mm. CMC backs up gfs at present but forms a low further south off Rocky. Access doest want much bar a WA system.

Decent total up north. Drove to Cairns on Tuesday, and again yesterday. Tuesday everything, the creeks and gullys, were bone dry. Yesterday they had a good flow in them and some on the back-roads behind Innisfail were flooded. The Bilyana-Murray River area of the highway there was water everywhere. The Palmerston range was torrential - water was flowing down off the mountain across the road in places.

one can only hope we get some next week smile

Radar is lying again. Nice dark green/yellow blob apparently over Ingham. I can't see a drop of rain anywhere - and I'm on the roof!

I have to say GFS has been quiet consistant with rain totals. Maybe eventually gfs will either drop that or maybe the other models will eventually follow suit. Hate the watching and waiting game cos frankly lets all agree, nature is unpredictable and the bom can get it wrong often, no fault of theres...just how nature works.

Bom keep backing off any decent falls. Looks as if the gulf system will stay far enough away not to be of much impact, and if anything ends up forming in the CS it will bugger off east.

the GOC looks like having a decent inflow, our issue is a weak trough or low forms in the southern coral sea blocking that flow from the coral sea.

Seems the monsoon is deepening so dont write anything off yet. As I have learnt, its all about positioning.
