well all the rain from the NTC moved south overnight, but didnt really have that much around the TSV area at all, best of the falls were east of us. certainly not the heavy falls the NTC has had over past 48 hours, really wanted to get this dam full, would have been a great feat after being at just 14% 6 weeks ago.

The heaviest rain is currently falling at Mission Beach with 63mm in the past hour to 4:45am.

Jeez Mick it might not be night of Noah style that Port Douglas or Tully has coped but much of the city will be triple figures with this next band of rain...fingers crossed! I am excited for you all anyway as having spent much of my life there I share the frustration and excitement. Keep the rain dances up SBT.

ive been on night shift all night, had the radar going, bar a few bands moving thru its slipped east of us all night.

But it also dawned on me, this is the first time this season that the Monsoon has directly had an influence on our weather. the rain in march was from an upper system, so finally we get a bit of monsoonal action!

EC was giving us a decent convergence band overnight, didnt really kick off at all. had about 75mm yesterday, another 25mm or so overnight. if we had that extra 100mm overnight thru the city would have definitely got that dam flows kicking again and topped her up. i know im being greedy, but could have been.

Well EC certainly offers some decent totals for you guys over the next 10 days shocked



All depends of course on what happens to the Coral Sea low / cyclone...so likely to see the totals change considerably based on the track of the system.

Probably a good thing, wouldn’t take much rain locally to see some serious flooding again.

The coming week will be interesting...
