In November it was looking like not making 4m , them it all changed and we are now at 5096mm smile

More trees to cut today if we get a break and the creek drops a bit.

Looking like a few more days of great weather and interesting patterns on the charts to watch.

Hope you all have your [censored] sorted and are ready for what ever comes, can see the hwy closed and the sheeple buying up a months worth of food to throw out a week later, leaving stuff all on the shelves..

Have fun and enjoy the event. smile


Cheers

Tablelands Barron river, past Mareeba, will likely hit minor flood levels today and possibly moderate.
Clohesy River is already at moderate and looks likely to hit major flood levels from this last lot of heavy rain to go through and with the Barron starting to back up.
Barron river @ lake placid is sitting just under minor at the moment.

I wonder when/what will close the range?

Take care out there everyone!!

Just tipped another 96mm out of the nylex, adding to the 70mm already tipped out last night, making 166mm here since yesterday arvo. Just shows how unpredictable the weather is (compared to forecast rainfall). It will be an interesting few days. Not sure what to expect, but that’s half the fun.

Looks like the SWW has moved slightly south

Severe Weather Warning
for DAMAGING WINDS and HEAVY RAINFALL

For people in Peninsula and parts of North Tropical Coast and Tablelands Forecast Districts.

Issued at 4:53 am Sunday, 30 December 2018.

Heavy rain and damaging winds possible across far north Queensland


Weather Situation: At 4am AEST, a slow-moving tropical low was located about 80km east-southeast of Lockhart River. The system is currently embedded within the strengthening monsoon trough, which extends from the Arafura Sea and into the northern Gulf of Carpentaria and Coral Sea.
The embedded tropical low is expected to slowly deepen today while moving slowly west onto Cape York Peninsula. Uncertainty persists regarding whether the system will move further west into the Gulf of Carpentaria or remain over Cape York Peninsula late today and into Monday. Regardless of its movement, the tropical low and monsoon trough are expected to produce areas of heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, and localised damaging wind gusts.

Six hourly rainfall totals between 120mm to 180mm are likely over coastal and adjacent inland areas north of about Cairns, and extending west across the Peninsula during Sunday. Isolated heavier falls are possible, particularly with embedded thunderstorms.

Damaging winds, with peak gusts up to 90km/h are possible from this afternoon.

Locations which may be affected include Lockhart River, Weipa, Aurukun, Old Mapoon, Coen, Torres Strait Islands, Cooktown, Musgrave, Laura, Hope Vale, Wujal Wujal and Port Douglas.

A flood watch is current for coastal catchments north of Cardwell, including catchments in the Cape York Peninsula.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Move your car under cover or away from trees.
* Secure loose outdoor items.
* Seek shelter, preferably indoors and never under trees.
* Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
* Never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. If it's flooded, forget it.
* Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.

The next Severe Weather Warning will be issued by 11:00 am AEST Sunday.

Almost bang on 100mm last night, taking our place over the 3m mark, the first time in my brief records. Previous high was 2942mm in 2011.

*Also the deadly broadband seems to be on the blink

Nice total Simmo, if you have FB Higgins storm chasing has it screenshot at 13.27 meters well over Major flood level https://www.facebook.com/HigginsStormCha...56128817816231/

Emptied another 24mm out the gauge at 9am making 210mm.

Wow a good 5+m over then. It is a real worry with this next TC that we could see flooding worse than March. With Tinaroo now ~78% EC's current scenario would probably see her spill.

Awesome total too. Hard to believe most people down the hill have had a 1000+mm December.

Severe Weather Warning
for DAMAGING WINDS and HEAVY RAINFALL

For people in Peninsula and parts of North Tropical Coast and Tablelands Forecast Districts.

Issued at 10:34 am Sunday, 30 December 2018.

Heavy rain and damaging winds likely across far north Queensland

Weather Situation: At 10am AEST Sunday, a slow-moving tropical low was located near the far north Queensland coast, about 65km south-southeast of Lockhart River. The tropical low is situated along a strengthening monsoon trough, which extends across the northern Gulf of Carpentaria and Coral Sea.
The tropical low is forecast to deepen today while moving in a westwards direction across Cape York Peninsula. At this stage, there is a moderate (20-50%) chance that the low may form into a tropical cyclone in either the Gulf of Carpentaria or northern Coral Sea over the next few days. Regardless of its future movement and development, the tropical low and monsoon trough are expected to produce areas of heavy rainfall, damaging winds and elevated tides across far north Queensland, including Torres Strait.

Areas of heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, are likely across far north Queensland during today and Monday. Six hourly rainfall totals between 120mm to 180mm are likely and isolated, heavier falls are possible with any thunderstorm activity. A Flood Watch remains current for coastal catchments north of Cardwell, including catchments across the Cape York Peninsula.

Damaging winds, with peak gusts in excess of 90km/h, are possible across far north Queensland from later this afternoon. These damaging winds are expected to become more likely into Monday, particularly about Torres Strait and Cape York.

Tides are expected to become higher than predicted through Torres Strait over the next couple of days and it is possible that some islands may see water levels that approach the Highest Astronomical Tide on the high tide on Monday.

Locations which may be affected include Lockhart River, Weipa, Aurukun, Old Mapoon, Coen, the Torres Strait Islands, Cooktown, Musgrave, Laura, Hope Vale, Wujal Wujal and Port Douglas.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Move your car under cover or away from trees.
* Secure loose outdoor items.
* Seek shelter, preferably indoors and never under trees.
* Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
* Never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. If it's flooded, forget it.
* Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.

The next Severe Weather Warning will be issued by 5:00 pm AEST Sunday.

I see that Copperlode dam was 1.21 metres above the spillway at lunchtime,- and Tinaroo is now at 78.02% capacity.

Freshie creek must be nearly up to the bridge now.
