Given the size of the falls north and south. 100mm at Mackay north and 80mm Miriam Vale south, some are going to be wondering why coastal CQ has missed out again.

5mm over 2 days very disappointing? Just looking through some old rainfall results 2017 was the 8th driest year on record for my place with 231mm.

1905-181
1915-153
1926-167
1946-146 Driest
1986-215
2002-175
2013-187
Yearly mean average is about 470mm?

Seriously? Over 100mm near Yeppoon according to Vinnie and around 90mm here at home, 67mm in Mackay, 60mm in Proserpine, even 39mm in Rocky.

Another 17mm here. At least it’s slow rain not a deluge so the soil can soak it up.

Yeah Friday was really wet.

GFS is going for 38-39deg in Yeppoon and 42-44 deg in Rocky next Sunday/Monday... probably overestimating temps .

Finished on 105mm here from this event. We will probably get some coastal showers tonight but the trough has cleared our area and pushed north.

You really should go look at the BOM rainfall and river conditions maps rather then cherry pick data.

Cherry picking? laugh That's your specialty , not mine.

Just two "Coastal" AWS's under 10mm out of dozens from the Whitsundays to Hervey Bay. The majority are over 50mm.



...and I'm happy to put up the "since 9.00am" info too if you want it where Samuel Hill has had another 25mm and Byfield 34mm .

Can you not see the areas that do not have green, orange and red spots? Not too many south of Gladstone. They seem to be concentrated in the CQ area.

Have you also noticed the extreme lack of summer rain?

That's gold. So now you are talking about the whole of Summer? Those areas where there is a "lack of dots" are sparce for AWS's south of Shoalwater Bay. The ones that exist scored rain, and good rain at that.

You also called the event over at 9.51 am yesterday did you not? Some of those areas got rainfall again today

I did . That's it above showing rainfall right along the Central Queensland coast .

And here I was thinking this was the Central Queensland thread. You know, from about just south of Gladstone to just north of Carmila

Given we are in summer, this has not been a very exciting weather system. Even 20mm will not do too much given the lack of January rain. I was looking outside and it looks like a fair bit of grass is dead. If we get no follow up which is a hallmark of the past three to four years, then the benefits from this event will be gone in a couple of weeks.

115ml for us. Lovely soaking stuff. Even the dam isn't overflowing again because it soaked in instead of running off.

Place had been starting to look a bit dry and dismal again before it.

The majority of 50mm plus falls were from Miriam vale south looking at that chart, to say everyone got good falls (for this time of year) is a bit stretched, as I said d before around 30mm for 3 days in Gladstone is far from “good falls”. And I’m not complaining at all, Itis what it is. Just pointing out that it was a very hit and miss event.

Can you point me to where this was stated please. Your mate said coastal CQ missed out which is simply not true.
