Been pretty cool up here too. Forecast keeps saying mostly sunny but apart from yesterday it has been mostly cloudy. Had 2 hours of sunshine this morning then solid cloud. Been pretty much solid cloud since I got back from Vietnam last week.
Also currently the coolest May since I have been in Mareeba and does not look likely to warm up any before the end of the month.
Not complaining though, love the cool weather while it is here. Got a roast in the oven as we speak. grin

Yeah gets bloody cold once you get to Tolga and beyond. Been hardly any wind at my place yet which is unusual. Touch wood it stays away a little longer.
The lack of sunshine is helping things stay green too which is nice. As soon as the sun comes back it will be brown within a week.

Absolute rubbish, drizzly, miserable, windy, cold, crappy, sh!tty weather is what it is..and anyone that thinks otherwise must be absolutely nuts, totally cuckoo and stark raving bonkers..!..why live in the tropics if you like cold weather..?..

Bring on September..

Well 28, if I remember correctly the members of the Nice and Cool Crew stem from Victoria,South Australia and Charters towers so even this rubbish weather is a big step up for the poor bugga's..in fact they are probably lazing around their pools today.. wink grin

Bonkers mate, totally bonkers..!..nuff said.. crazy


So much for my plans today to set up some formwork and mix up some concrete tomorrow for some paths....and haven't been fishing in ages..we tries a fortnight ago and ended up croc spotting in the river after watching some poor other bugga get stuck trying to cross the Hull River bar and pounded by waves..

Peak heat time at 2.30pm and it's a comfortable 30.9 degrees, with a very cool breeze just short of being chilly. I always welcome the change to "cooler" weather now. But as long as I can get by with a woollen jumper and uggs for a couple weeks I'm happy.

68mm over the last 24hrs between 6am and 6am.

Extremely heavy this morning around 5am. I looked at the radar and there was a small dot of light blue over Dunk. Raining like it should at least be yellow. Check the Townsville 256km and the dot is bigger and darker at least. Still not depicting the rain rate.

Perhaps it is because Mission Beach sits at the extremity of the radars reach that we donít often get a completely accurate read. I dunno!

Yes mate, both radars are equally poor for Mission beach area. It's such a hassle in my game leaving from G'vale! Sometimes just gotta take a punt..
Good rain BTW!

0.4mm here

Spent 50 years without air-con...this might be the year that changes...at least for sleeping at night..I'm getting soft in my old age.. grin

Some heavy showers here in the wee hours..

Sf, its been many a time I've been caught out by believing what I've seen (or not seen) on the radar...as both you and Ron suggest we definitely are at the limits of the Cairns and Townsville radars...though Townsville better shows weather approaching from the SE...I hope you got your pile of dirt moved before the rain..

Ron..Feel free to ask whats happening down here if you are in 2 minds about making the trip..
