Nice overcast, warm but not hot, rain around but keeps passing around us. Grass starting to crunch underfoot.

Gets dry real quickly. Last rain was 11mm on 28th March. Nothing since then.

Water restrictions since last year:

Be interesting to see if we make it through this coming Dry.

That's mad!! Would have thought the bores would have been replenished after the wet-season?

Dry Season before last the creek dried up, the first time in 30 years, or 60 years, depending on who you talk to. That was an awful dry season. We haven't had a good enough Wet Season to properly flush the creek and replenish the water table since Yasi.

Sorry to hear that mate, the situation sounds dire out that way.
Hopefully the underground bores can be filled from trickle down water through the rock layers.

It is like someone flicks a dry season switch at the beginning of April each year up here. 21 days since any real rain now. Fired up the sprinklers in one of the paddocks this morning. Have to beat the wind.

BoM saying the MJO will continue to weaken as it heads east and becomes indiscernible before it reaches Australian longitudes,- but to my untrained eye it looks as if it's doing OK at the moment.
Also, in the last week or so, is the fastest I've seen it move for a long while.
Time will tell.

you aren't the first to think this, its a bit of a popular opinion currently. See how it plays out

Extremely nice weather here at Utchee, a few days of rain totalling 77mm, fog in the mornings and so redolent of autumn down south....without the thought of the six months of a hard, cold, wet winter.

Just under 10mm last night, Aloomba apparently over 20mm. Shows how quick those showers fade after coming in off the coast.

A couple of weeks of cold mornings say sub 15c would be nice for a change 😊

Feels like it could go below 15c here tonight RF.

When will the MJO pass through again Hickory?

Yeah it was pretty crazy RF. My neighbours, who have lived in the house for over 40 years, said it was rare for the the river to get that high. They did say it has been higher though and where I took the pics I shared here I would have been at least 2m under water.

According to NOAA, as of Mon 16th April:-

1.) The MJO remained active during the past week. It is now in RMM phase 2, emerging over the Indian Ocean.
2.) The GEFS forecasts the MJO to slowly propagate into RMM phase 3 and then weaken during the next 2-3 weeks.
3.) In sharp contrast to the GEFS forecast, our constructed analog statistical model forecasts the MJO to continue propagating around the globe without significant weakening.

So for us in phase 5,- take your pick.
