I really enjoy events of good, pouring rain, and I also enjoy wall to wall sunshine.
It would be great if we could have 26 weeks of each alternating for the whole year. crazy

another 60mm last night...but we might actually see some sunshine today..

Bulgun creek at about 1100mm for the week..

Interesting article there Hickory..I bet the fishing would be awesome...I also read that the Sacred Kingfisher is sometimes seen on Willis island..although its a migratory bird its weird to think of them flying nearly 500 kms off the coast..but I guess they fly back and forth from New Guinea..

BOM going early

Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology, Queensland
This Flood Watch provides early advice of possible flooding within the specified catchments.

Initial Flood Watch for coastal catchments between Cairns and Burnett Heads
Issued at 2:10 pm EST on Thursday 29 March 2018

Flood Watch Number: 1

River level rises and areas of flooding may develop in the Flood Watch area from Monday.

A tropical low currently in the Coral Sea is likely to approach the coast over the weekend.

Areas of heavy rainfall may develop within the Flood Watch area from late Sunday through to Tuesday. The location of the heaviest rainfall remains uncertain and is dependent on the movement of the low. Further updates will be provided over the weekend as more information becomes available.

Any significant rainfall may cause river level rises above the minor flood level from Monday and may also lead to local flooding.

Catchments that have received recent rainfall are expected to respond quickly.

Catchments which may be affected include:

Mulgrave and Russell Rivers
Johnstone River
Tully River
Murray River
Herbert River
Black River
Ross and Bohle Rivers
Haughton River
Burdekin River downstream of Burdekin Falls Dam
Don and Proserpine Rivers
Pioneer River
Connors, Isaac and Styx Rivers and Plane Creek
Mackenzie and Fitzroy Rivers and Shoalwater and Water Park Creeks
Calliope River
Boyne River
Baffle Creek
Kolan River

Warnings are currently in place for the Tully, Murray and Herbert catchments from rainfall earlier this week. These catchments are again at risk of further flooding next week.

There's a LOT of uncertainty regarding the movement of this Low, I don't blame them.

Agree and this is good advice as long as we all understand a flood watch is an early indication something may happen, and flood warning advice is something is expected to happen, or is happening. Also that any river or creek not listed in a Watch advice is not that it won't happen, because flash flooding or big rain in a short period of time is much more difficult for forecasters.

Woke up to, of all strange things.....fog!
Can see the moisture against the sunshine. Walk into it and not get wet. Couldn't feel it either. Black as anything to the west.

I noticed that GFS has now come more into line with Access. Well at least for now. If they hold true, and that’s a big if, could be another substantial amount of water again for the region.

Interesting, Scott. I just looked and Douglas Shire has three, Port Douglas, Mossman and Wonga Beach, none appear to be needed over the Daintree River. Must be a compliment to residents' methods of building and channeling water smile

Now I have had 2 land slides. This was normal yesterday. Can't put a dog in there for perspective because they sink up to bellies just on the edge of it so would imagine it would be bye bye woofers if they went out to the middle.
The pic does not do it justice. It is about 8m high. The grasses at the top are over 6ft tall. This would be about a quarter of my dry season river paddock gone.
