ACCESS-R and EC push the system a bit further North, so hopefully we are still in for a chance of some semi decent rain.

Let's hope it's a bit further north than Mackay. Cardwell would be good. EC is still showing a gulf low around December 15. Maybe we can get some love from that one?

On another note, there were reports of the highway between Charters Towers & Townsville being cut last night during that storm. It will be interesting to see where exactly it was if it's true. There have been reports of hail around Charters Towers from that storm also, I thought I could hear some on our roof at one stage.

Only a few frames to see at this stage of the morning, but the Low seems to be moving WNW on the animated visible sat image. It's currently around 650Km East of Cairns, 590Km ENE of Townsville.

Looks like the system will cross just South of Cairns, GFS has the focus of the heaviest falls around Townsville though.

Only hope is flow changes. Bowen has ene. Hopefully we get that.

well hopefully ex owen comes back as the models suggest and bring us something. GFS has it as 993hPa over woodstock next saturday. EC right over us at 991hPa. Problem is it will be moving very quickly.

So an unstable week ahead, showers storm etc, hopefully some gales and few hours of heavy rain from ex owen next weekend then on the northern side of the system we are back to fine and dry.

Not bad RD! This forum is awfully quiet even with decent rainfall. Hopefully things liven up next weekend if everything goes to plan with Owen.
