This dry is definitely very dry. I have only recorded 28mm in 5 months.
For the same period in 2017 we received 52mm and 2016 110mm.
Fingers crossed for some good storms during the buildup.

Yeah Ron the winds certainly picked up this morning......looks like backing off for the next weekend again though but I don't ever remember an august like this ever before..its amazing..1mm of rain and just so much boatable/fishable weather..between the wwoofers gaffing a double hook up of Spanish mackeral last Friday onto the deck of the boat with 6 of us trying to keep our toes away from the snapping jaws on a 17 ft boat..and my crazy missus hooking into spotty mackeral schools and just wrapping the line around her hand and yanking them like a crazy person.. bouncing the fish across the surface and either into the side of the boat or into the boat at head height...all very hilarious until someone like me ends up nearly losing a finger..never worked harder and had so much fun at this time of year in over 20 years here......this place never ceases to amaze me...good for us coastal dwellers but I sure hope Simmo and the inland folk get some storms before too long...28mm in 5 months..Just wow..

Certainly the consistent coldest winter for at least a decade here this year, not so much the lows as much but the continuous cold nights. Looking forward to some warmer weather from here on and hopefully some rain to spruce things up a bit soon.

Just a standard August here.

Avg low 10.3c, High 26.6c and 1.2mm over 2 days. Only thing different was the lack of wind, which I am very happy about.

30c+ temps for the next 5 days in Mareeba. Things are warming up.

Roll on the buildup and lets get some good storms. grin
