Loving this cool weather! Bom has Gladstone on 35-60mm tomorrow but looking at radar it looks rather dismal. Iím guessing movement of this inland low and trough is supposed to intensify with the e/se feed at some time. Hope so.

I would say it is all pretty much over now. We had 15mm

Be a few light showers and isolated rain events, but it feels like not much more will fall.

I highly doubt it is over. The trough generating the rain isn't forecast to contract away from Rockhampton until tomorrow. The trough is generating widespread rain to your south and is only forecast to move slowly north.

Bundy around 30mm too .

How come the rain is coming from inland and moving east rather than coming off the sea and moving west?

80ml here over the last couple of days. Steady, soaking rain. Amazingly hubby and I went up through the nat park today and I have never seen sand hold water the way it did today. Running down the tracks but soaking in wherever the tracks weren't.

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.

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 ďgood fallsĒ. And Iím not complaining at all, Itis what it is. Just pointing out that it was a very hit and miss event.

By now I would have thought you would have realised those BOM past rainfall maps are highly inaccurate. They are a very generalised map.

It is like taking an entire city, averaging out the income levels and saying everyone in that city makes x amount of dollars a year.

I just tipped out 26mm in one of our rain gauges, apparently I had between 50 and 100mm though.

The obs from the AWS's along the coast support the map.They have a damned sight more credibilty than you do .You take the worst out of everything.

You quite clearly stated that the central Qld coast missed out and yet Vinnie managed 130mm. Go figure.

Weather has been lovely the last couple of days out here in Moranbah. I've been working over at Dysart this week, driving back and forth every day. They had a bit more rain than Moranbah. Some areas had 100mm. It's greening up beautifully there.
Looks like the 40 degrees days are coming back early next week.

understand what you are saying RC, ive had 36mm so far this month, Townsville airport is on19mm but the monthly totals map shows the area with 50-100mm.

For the record, CF mentioned last month about the inaccuracy of these maps not showing totals properly.

Indeed I did, and there is actually a very simple and logical reason why it didn't show with an isolated fall of 185 mm confined to just one area of the entire state over just 2 square kilometres but then logic has no place here clearly.

Particularly when a multitude of stations blew his claim that the central coast missed out right out of the water or are they all wrong too? But then this always occurs with every rain event he has so it's hardly surprising.

AWS data supports the maps above It may not suit your agenda here but over a broad scale they are fairly indicative. Maybe you should do some light reading on smoothing.

I see Copperlode is overflowing .That must be hard to watch.

which backs up RCs comments that the maps are generalised. hence why they didn't pick up the falls you had, and they didn't pick up the falls RC had or the falls i had. So maybe, just maybe that logic is rather clear after all.

Worst? I think it's fantastic they got rain. I love seeing the wet in full swing up there. It's the best time of year.



RC cited a lack of rainfall figures in the area circled. Every site recorded rain. Those grey ones are always marked on the map and show the sparcity of stations in that region and today indicate ZERO rainfall. There simply are not as high a concentration of stations in that area as everywhere else down the coast .That is simply not an indication that no rain fell there as he tried to suggest.

The stations that are there down the coast recorded at least 40mm and up to and beyond 100mm so how exactly did the east coast of Central Queensland miss out? Vinnie scored 130mm in Yeppoon?

don't play games with me CF, you are walking a fine line as it is.

My reply was in regards to RCs comments that the map on the previous page are 'generalised' and 'not accurate'. Which was a fair and valid comment. You can twist words and try push what ever logic you think you can, does not change the fact the maps do not always portray accuracy.

They certainly don't. How often have I discussed the strange patterns of rain we get here.

Instances where my daughter who lived maybe 10k away as the crow flies got more than 4 inches in one evening and we got nothing. My son has had torrents of rain when at work maybe 5 k as the crow flies from home and we have had nothing.

I have watched the big hill over the road disappear in a curtain of rain and we got nothing.

I remember when I was a young child watching the rain go up the old bruce highway. It followed the white line in the middle of the road. Absolute downpour one side, nothing the other.

Rain happens where it wants to.

His original comment stated that coastal Central QLD missed out which is simply not true . The localised AWS's confirm this.

Hot spell: CQ get ready to sweat (no exercise needed)
7th Feb 2018 10:45 AM
https://www.themorningbulletin.com.au/ne...needed/3328991/
Quote:

It's set to be hot across CQ in coming days.

A HOT spell is set to see temperatures soar beyond 40 degrees for large parts of Central Queensland in coming days.

A Bureau of Meteorology spokesman this morning confirmed Rockhampton's maximum is set to hit 39 degrees on Monday.

Elsewhere across the region, Emerald is tipped to reach 42 degrees, Biloela 40, Blackwater 42, Baralaba 42 and Yeppoon 36.

The BoM spokesman said the conditions, which will be about five or six degrees above February's average, were being caused by a high pressure system which will see winds blow from the north west.

The spokesman said despite the high temperatures, the weather event wasn't classified as a severe heatwave.

The hot temps are set to stay around for a few days, from Sunday to Wednesday.

The sun is set to be out in force.

Unfortunately, no follow-up rain is on the horizon.

Good falls have been recorded across much of Central Queensland in the past week.

Yep , it's just a question of how hot it is going to get. There is good agreement amongst the models regarding the hot north westerlies.

Not much promise of rain. If only the latest GFS would come off. Highly unlikely though. A coastal hugging Low/TC.

Yeah I do wonder if the BOM is more conservative with the coastal temps, though we could see mid 30's in Yeppoon.

Not sure if this is accurate but isn't the end of summer usually around March 21st the Autumn equinox? I always think of summer as Dec 21 to March 21 .

Wonder why the BOM has downgraded temps for Yeppoon , apart from tomorrow being 34, they've changed it to 31 for most of the week now.

Ouch, BOM's forecast for Moranbah on Tuesday is 'very hot and mostly sunny, max 43 degrees'.
Haven't seen 'very hot' in our forecast before. So glad I work in air-conditioning.

BOM must be thinking the seabreeze will kick in earlier if they dowgraded temps here on the coast.

Also it was a warmer night in Rocky than on the coast ,24.5 deg we had 23.7 deg, usually the other way around.

I would be nice to have a few cooler days and a spot of rain.
However in these pseudo ElNino-like conditions it's probably unlikely at lease until the next passage of the MJO through our longitudes in March if it happens.

29 deg now feels like 28 deg . Interesting it was 3 deg cooler today in Yeppoon but with the humidity you wouldn't think so .

Somewhere around midday to 1.30pm the breeze really started blowing down here so air con is off , windows open and fans still on.

Dew point temp now 27 deg which makes it officially more muggier than it is in Darwin right now.

Seabreeze on the coast is not doing much today frown

Disgusting weather. 29 deg now feels like 34 deg , muggy and no breeze at all.

Had to move my recliner seat right under the fan and bump it up to medium. Thank goodness weather isn't always like this...


Dog is happy with the desk fan pointed at her.

The first lot looks like it moved inland and the edge of it will go past Byfield.

Second lot near Jambin looks like it is heading the right way ... i think?

Rocky added to the severe storm warning about an hour ago...

The models were indicating smaller falls for the coast and larger falls inland.

So I guess they are predicting storms developing in the west and not on shore flows. Hence sporadic chances of rain for the coast.

Drove a truck from Gladstone to Emerald and back again today and it just hammered down from Blackwater to Duaringa. Forecast for the next week looks good.

Those rain models seem to be hinting that the coastal region around Gladstone to Rockhampton will miss out on anything significant like widespread 100mm+

I hope 150mm falls from the NT border to the coast.

Wait and see what happens.

Yeah last week this week's forecast was for 5-10mm and then closer to the date they ramped up the numbers which obviously isn't going to happen in Rocky/Yeppoon, but yeah I can't see anything coming this way .

25 deg here not too bad and only 23 deg in Rocky. Must be freezing down there.

But not including Gladstone lol, seems when we get these systems it concentrates around the agnes/1770 to bundy area as it did at start of the year....... but it is a very unstable situation atm so things might change throughout the day.

Why does it avoid Rocky and go down to 1770 to Bundy, what's so much better down there (shape of coastline ? )

Much as I like a bit of rain this is silliness. Spent the night in town with the daughter and just got home. So much water on the road. I was wondering if I would make it at one stage but the creek I was worried about was fine. Just water on the roads where we have never seen it before.

120ml so far here.

Looking at the convergence starting to strengthen feeding in from the north, rocky looks like more rain soon and spreading further south. You canít see it clearly on sat but thereís an upper level low entered on Emerald. May get rather wet soon, for how long depends on movement of upper low I presume. Can almost hear the garden sighing with relief lol.

Vinnie in my opinion regarding systems and storms coming from the west, I think the position of mountain ranges have a lot to do with it especially with the way storms seem to side step when moving through Capricornia when they get near the coast. We seem to do all right with rain coming from the east so I donít think the coastline has that much effect. But this is just an opinion based on observation and I could be wrong.

But it never really rains around Rocky.
Watching the storms and rain go around Rocky is just typical, and has always been that way. lol

Storms primarily form on the ranges, most of which are much closer to the coast west of Brisbane & Bundy. The ranges west of capricornia where storms do develop are quite a bit further away.

As for shape of the coast, it has a lot to do with rockys rainfall. The moisture laden onshore winds, those form the SE are dropping their rain on Fraser Island first, then Curtis isalnd, buy the time the SE winds get to Rocky they are dry

It does rain in Rocky, there's been days in similar events to this where we would be sat under convergence and receive 24hour totals of 100mm, albeit rare it does happen. It just seems most of the influence from this upper low etc is more north of here again, this time lol. A wee kbit frustrating but what can we do? I'm glad Townsville has finally received a decent bout of storms. Just waiting and seeing how it plays out down here, hoping as the low moves further north the rain south of here will pass over us.

I always thought we get our best rain when it comes from the east.

Which in the past few years has been light on.

Spot on RC, thatís what I mentioned earlier. And just had a look at it at radar and it looks as if rain is approaching the coast from the NE which would suggest the upper low is moving north. Letís see what the night brings.

Yes RC, the only rain we've actually received was last night when showers moved onshore. Otherwise just light, not even recordable showers here and there. I will forecast some more of those at least lol

Unfortunately I think the Berserker ranges tend to block easterly flows for Rockhampton. When it comes from a more north easterly direction it suits Rockhampton.

Also Rockhampton has no ranges to the west so it can also get storms, while further south the dee range can block storms unless they are really determined to get through.

But at the end of the day it is as much a lottery whether you get rain or not.

Showers from the SE can do okay too if they're strong enough. Some showers moving onto coast, over Yeppoon and Port Alma, see if either make it this far inland.
