first few days of April could be big, or could be nothing! Depending on ex TC Iris. Hoping for one final downpour before season ends. with the RR Dam at 93% be great to see it fill up.

Would be great, but I doubt Townsville will see much from this system.

Had a small heavy shower come over, probably only lasted 5-10 mins, but shows you how water logged the soil is, our back yard was an instant swamp, road was covered with water out 1 meter from the gutters(this usually only happens after days of rain), the culvert across he road has 2 foot of water flowing down it(usually only get a small Flow you can barely see after that short period.

If the dam gets to 100% would be a good idea not to open gates. Let the level rise a tad more due to end of wet season
No need for that extra room for flood mitigation
If it gets to 120% would be a good start for start of dry season
Alrhough would be a bugger if another cyclone came through

Despite the above, I still don't think the Herbie Burdie will see much from this system.

1mm over night. No it doesn't look like we will get anything. Time to start pulling out the cyclone food and start eating it. I keep getting SWW and with 1mm of rain and a maximum wind gust of 14kph yesterday is it anyone wonder no one takes these seriously? No it isn't.

all depends if this system remains weak or not. if it does a SW movement brings it close to us, a southerly movement or eastwards we say goodbye.

BOM have to take into account every possible scenario.

Time to say goodbye now me thinks. Some models do play with bringing the system back to the coast late this week.

sure is great to have secure water in the dam again. still two wet weeks for the whole season, and just about on average now for the wet, so looking back - been awesome but not spectacular.
