We all k ow not to listen to long range models, so writing off feb based on long range models. Although the BOM has jinxed us by issueing Intial flood watch between Cairns and Rollingstone lol so prob wont see a drop.

if last nights conditions cant deliver god knows what will, bar a cyclone. perfect conditions and we get 8mm.
YAY!

the wind flow changed about 15-20km west of us, meaning all the storms coming from inland changed direction and went north before they got to us. then the northerly flow was just off from missing us too around midnight. Hence why areas to our west and north west did better.
Perfect set up and again we get screwed over, there is always something, just wanted a massive wet night mad

if you move the mouse over the alert station you can see the names. the catchment area runs from Calcium to Woodstock to Nettlefield then down to the dam wall obviously.

Townsville was never gonna get much. The set up wasnt for you guys down there. Even the intial flood warning didnt include Townsville and still doesnt include you guys in it. Have to admit I didnt expect a drenching last night considering the moist onflow wasnt meant to hit til later today. Was last night a pre event to the main event lol

more than likely so Wezza, between 50-80mm through the towers to mingela region. 100mm at upper Bluewater, 23 at Dalrymple Rd alert which is about 1.5km from me and i got 10mm. for about 10 minutes i stood out the front of my house and listened the rain pouring down only a few streets away.

so over this, really am with this hit and miss rubbish. in a la nina year we are still yet to have a widespread rain event.

The LA Nina was never gonna be an influence, the BOM has stated many times that the current La Nina was not gonna influence anything either way, may as well just be neutral conditions. So whats the flow like tonight...I can never work out the flow or what not. one thing I fail at when looking at models or radar etc.

Ross Dam level according to automated tweet at 0300hrs this morning went from 14.6% to 14.7%.
Probably won't get a proper reading until tomorrow morning. So just a 0.1% increase in 24 hours.

had 35mm over the weekend, and that is it now. All cleared up. While there were some highish sporadic falls, sadly a large chunk of the area did poorly yet again.

models indicating about 1-3mm of rain over the next week now and that brings us into mid February. Ext GFS, not that its trustworthy but to give you and idea has 5-15mm through the area the following week.

GFS forecasting temperatures reaching 37-40c next week too.

The Joys of Mother nature. She is ultimately very unpredictable. 100mm for the dam area is awesome and unexpected.

A rare but not unheard of sub 20 deg. minimum this morning. Probably the result of a lot of dry air air pumped this way from the recent bout of south easterlies. DP still disappointingly low. Hopefully to change for the better over the next few days with a more northerly airmass.

It was certainly a nice way to wake up! smile Beautiful & cool here now, still raining lightly with the thunder rumbling away in the distance. I dare say things should steam up quite a bit later on though... I'm off to Townsville shortly anyways.

3 month climate outlooks shows...more of the same. Looks like 2018 is lining up as a worse year then 2015. Although the last 3 month outlook showed high chance for above average rain and that failed so maybe we will have the opposite again lol unlikely.

Do these outlooks take TC in to consideration.

can see lightning from the cells down near Burdekin dam. good line there, hoping it builds west and keeps moving all night.
however, id go without tonight if it means we get a better chance tomorrow. Awesome set up for storms inland tomorrow, amazing amount of energy and moisture. Just gotta get lucky to make the coast.

awesome bolts to the north on way into work. cant believe this line moved up the coast all night and then missed Townsville. its not like we suffered a week of hellish heat and humidity like the rest of the state or anything, just cant win a damn trick.

conditions today look just as good, if not better, hopefully this lingering cloud buggers off quickly.

Ended up with 80mm from the storm...awesome amount. Another one of them will be awesome. Might then catch up on missed rain. I joked back in nov that the good rain in oct and nov was our wet season...might have been right.

Building up nicely to the east of here. Thunder rumbling away. Hopefully we snag a storm later on. And hopefully Townsville manages to finally get something too!

I’m staying in Mt Louisa for a month, up from Proserpine. Was strange to see such promising clouds today over Mt Stuart only for it to amount to zip, had a big storm in Proserpine last night. Hopefully the “Dome” collapses soon. Maybe tomorrow will bring better luck but I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Second day in a row shafted by mother nature, set up looked amazing this arvo, yet nothing formed in the right spots and of course the upper winds werent in our favour yet again.

second time in 24hours the storms skip us and hit ingham northwards.

Sorry if this sounds dumb but would Mackay have cooler summers/ more bearable humidity / temperatures in the warmer months than Townsville?

If there hasn't been a broadscale monsoon circulation over Queensland by April then the wet season has failed.

Current long term forecast for March is that it could be well above average, April above average also (but only just).

Looked like a ripper storm as I was driving to Townsville this morning. It was spitting bolts everywhere! Just in Townsville now, there's branches down all over the place. Quite a few traffic lights are out & power lines down in Charles St.

No surprise it's made such a long journey - these MCC systems that form along monsoonal troughs are the real deal, they don't mess around. Has potential to turn into a tropical low/TC down the track, watching this space.

it will move northwards, create further instability and also increasing the onshore easterly flow, so should start seeing upper and low level moisture.

Wrong thread Kowree..!..this is for our Desert dwelling southern brothers..lol..

Just 15 mm here for now though the amount of rumbling was amazing..

For some reason that I cant explain the models have backed off for us in the Tully/Innisfail region yet Townsville and Cairns forecasts are ramping up a bit rainfall wise.....what a strange wet season..!

I reckon we'll see something later tonight from that new line forming out near Hughenden. Certainly very lightning active.

Hopefully not, Ergon can’t seem to keep the power on in Mount Louisa. Was off last night and went off again before.

Bit of a Fizzer. Unless it ramps up I think it wont reach anywhere near the forecast amount.

line that RD mentioned marching steadily to the coast. for some reason the activity fired up 50km out to sea tonight instead of over us like last night. Plenty of cells raging up to the north, hopefully that line at Pentland makes in the morning.
