I got very lucky the other day. 32ml from a storm that cruised over us. Topped up the tanks a bit.

Perth has had more rain this year than Yeppoon , that's something you don't see often.

Last year felt like the first year in a while we had more storms .. this year it just seems too dry, though we did get a rumble the other day with that showery event.

The last six years or more the weather has been quite erattic Vinnie.

I would say we are in a long term dryer period at the moment. Long term as in many many years long.

Or for all we know we could be returning to normal years from a long term wet period. There are no long term records going back thousands or years.

31 deg in Rocky 25 in Yeppoon but most of the day around 22-23deg.

Livio's outlook doesn't seem so pessimistic compared to the BOM outlook:

Some heavy falls last night. Very very isolated though. 75mm+ at byfield.

A narrow heavy shower at Gavial/Gracemere road today at the highway roadworks.

In saying that, I am slightly concerned about the forecast maps, they seem to be following a similar pattern to last year.

During the past week, or so, we have scored 2 good showers. One with 32ml then the other night woke to the sound of rain. Scored another 4ml out of that.

The grass is looking greener though I am sure it won't last long but better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick.

Starting to think a drought is nearly upon us in this part of the world as well.

I would have hoped to have seen storms in the south east corner by now.

We can not expect too much yet as it is still September, but I can remember three years in a row we never got a break until January.

From memory, didn't last year we see more storms around October and November and it was wetter ?

Rocky has only had 300mm , instead of 600 year to date.

Yes, last year spring was what I would consider more normal, then summer was a bit of a flop.

Two previous years, spring was a failure but there were large deluges in summer.

An older person thought in his opinion the seasons have lost a bit of consistency. Long dry spells and short deluges is the order of the day at the moment.

What a lovely downpour, or 3. We had a few really good rain periods and got 38ml. Very very patchy. Neighbour reported 40ml. People on the next road reported 4. My garden will really love it.

It was certainly unexpected but very welcome especially as I had mulch sitting here ready to put out. All tanks are back to nearly full although the dams are all still low.

Looks like the action tonight is more inland.

Storms in the west the past few days. Looks like a normal build up to the season.

Is the dry weather beyond us now, and we have returned to a normal situation? While it is still dry, that is normal for this time of year although should become wet within a few weeks.
