Nice difference Simmo. You are quite a way above the Cairns March avg as well.

Got a small job done on S Mission rd but had to go via East Feluga road. There was a very heavy shower between S Johnstone and Innisfail not long ago.

Wow ... that the height of a very tall man....whereas Cairns has only received a midget-sized month of rain.. smile

I guess you don't have to make excuses as to why you haven't slashed the paddocks in a while..

Thanks for the extra pics Simmo.
Great to see the difference, as I watch from a distance.

If I get one more millimetre that will make it up the the massive grand total of 235mm .....lol
(the height of a dog, maybe)

The road just South of our turnoff is cut, as the creek behind our property has gone over the bridge at the highway.. looking more likely I won't get there for Easter.

Just passed 1200mm for the month, that's triple the March average and beats the old March record by 320 mm.


I wonder how many days before the Bruce Highway is open in its entirety?


it'll be a while. Cattle Ck sth of Ingham has come up again overnight and now the Herbert is on the way up. This certainly will put a dampener on peoples easter travel plans.


You think 2-3 days before passable?


Tomorrow arvo at the earliest. Safest bet is inland route.

Blair..is that 11 wet days over the whole month or in one 11 day period..?...either way its utter madness..


One 11-day period. 100+ on 10 of the 11 days, and 80-odd on the other one.


Holy crap...and no mobile phones or internet to figure out what the hell was going on...

So would that be due to a stalled monsoon trough to the north..?...there were no coral sea cyclone that month..


Yes, stalled monsoon trough basically. Big block in the Tasman too (Melbourne's equal-longest run of 35+ days was also in this period).

Thanks Blair..thats all very interesting...

I saw this on BOM 1981 flood report.....

"Floods commenced in the Tully River and adjacent streams on 7th , this flooding extending to the Herbert River by 11th. Whilst major flooding on these streams was confined to their lower reaches , the smaller nearby rivers like the Russell and Mulgrave caused severe local flooding , but the flooding around Innisfail from the North and South Johnstone rivers was slightly less severe. These floods emphasise the fact that the heaviest rainfalls in this particular region were confined to the coastline. "

So what do you all make o the rain event this weekend? Think it will happen?

Also, someone at work mentioned how it was a good thing that Tinaroo was not full - otherwise the flooding would have been worse. Is there truth to this?

Thanks for asking. I was a bit afraid to. lol.
Have friends here who need to drive down to Giru for 2 or 3 days, some time in the not too distant future. They were supposed to go yesterday.

From memory I think this was part of the problems with the Brisbane floods. The dam was full, so some said they should have released more water earlier.

There's some good info about ex-TC Iris in the QLD Tropical Cyclone Season thread.

As for the dam, very much so. Put it this way: in three days it went from ~75% to ~85%...imagine 10% of the capacity of Lake Tinaroo being added over and above what we just saw. People are talking about how '77 & '79 were bigger, we don't see it like it was when I was a boy, etc etc...I wonder just how big it could have been if it had already filled from the other week's efforts.

Just looking at the Cool Moon Caravan Park.
CoolMoon

Must have been the narrow section between the main road and the creek. Wonder how much the road created a damming effect.

31mm overnight. No rain since 9pm.

Looks like I might be agonisingly short of the coveted 1000mm of rain for the month😢.

Nobody seems to know what ex Iris has in store as yet, but driving around the region this past week anything more than a stiff breeze could cause some reasonable damage.

Well a couple of dry days to clean the yard up and get ready for Easter Bunny😁
