Another cloudy day in Yeppoon where the sun came out for a brief 5mins . This must be surely one of the longest run of cloudy days.

Yeah cloudy days with buggar all rain. Was digging in fruit tree garden today and ground is bone dry an inch down. Would be nice to get a few inches before winter arrives.

With 20 deg last night and the drop in humidity during the day now it sure feels like April.

Think that's it for rainfall , though you never know.

Nothing extraordinary with temperatures , all the heat seems to be to the south of the continent.

Wonder when the nights will drop in temp just a bit. Supposed to average 18 deg at night in Rocky in April . Maybe later this month.

Days seem smack bang on average in Yeppoon at least but nights seems warmer than usual.

I though SW changes happened in April or maybe not yet ?

I am more wondering when it will rain. It will soon be two months with no rain.

Spitting yesterday around midday for a short time and spitting now . Either come down properly or don't rain at all I say. There was also a brief (15 sec shower) in Yeppoon CBD on Wednesday.

Very humid. Feels like we've gone back to November/December. NE winds I see.

Very light breeze. Coils on the patio- soon as wind drops mozzies and sandflies start coming out.

Humidity is even worse today 1.30pm and it's on 80 percent with barely any breeze .

Just had a look at the doona in storage and it's got traces of mould .

Ahh the joys of living on the coast lol.

I have heard reports of up to 60mm of rain falling in that rain event just south of Rockhampton yesterday.

Was pretty isolated though.

Well that was a pretty poor wet season.
Monthly totals from my own gauge near Rockhampton:

JAN 54mm
FEB 91mm
MAR 11mm

How did everyone else go?

I haven't kept a record but I think probably close to average or just below only because most of the rain was coastal .. Pretty sure more than 11mm in March.

Wish it had been more widespread and included Rocky.

Not much of a breeze on the coast, feels like I'm in Rocky except it is a bit cooler but man the humidity is yuk. Not as bad as the middle of summer and unbearable but it's still noticeable.

20 deg this morning but you can barely feel it with the 94 percent humidity !

Lawn is still growing without rain just from watering it and the dam humidity.

Got the doona out just to get ready for "winter" and it's gone mouldy frown

Also some stuff in the pantry has gone off despite being in a sealed container !


Damn moisture ...

Am also lighting those natural mossie coils .. which work but even trying to light them, is hard when it seems so damp the match is hard to light !]

Got 2 going and they went out so I went out to put a new one in and in that short time I got bitten !!

Sandflies are a pain at the moment , mosquitoes not so much.

No strong breeze on the forecast either.
