Owen owes us some rainfall from fires to floods. The first run of the creek is going to be something worth watching as mini dams of dead vegetation material is certain to cause flash flooding...

47.5 mm here.
A blessing as it has cleared up the air and quenched most of the fires. The creek once again has a notable flow.

Issued at 10:44 pm Saturday, 15 December 2018.
Heavy rainfall to extend from the tropics further south through central Queensland on Sunday. Possible damaging winds in the northeast tropics.

Weather Situation:
Ex tropical cyclone Owen currently lies over the east tropical inland. It is forecast to move southeastwards and will likely move off the Townsville coast through Sunday. A broad upper level trough will move east over the state on Sunday and will eventually shift offshore into the Coral Sea later on Monday.
Heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, is expected to develop further over the eastern tropics south of Cairns overnight and extend south into central districts as the system tracks further southeast on Sunday. 6 hourly rainfall totals between 100-200mm are possible, with possibly higher totals with slow moving thunderstorms. Locations that may be affected include Tully, Cardwell, Ingham, Townsville, Palm Island, Charters Towers, Bowen, Proserpine, Mackay, Clermont, Emerald, Rockhampton, Gladstone, Biloela and Bundaberg.
Currently the heaviest rain is occurring over the Herbert and Lower Burdekin district. Halifax east of Ingham recorded 122mm in the one hour to 10:00pm and 270mm in the 6 hours to 10:30pm.
Damaging wind gusts in excess of 90km/h are possible over the North Tropical Coast district overnight and through Sunday morning, particularly near the base of the ranges. Locations that may be affected include Cairns.
The tropical low will most likely lie offshore of the Mackay coast on Monday before shifting slow north again during Tuesday and Wednesday. At this stage the low is not expected to redevelop into a tropical cyclone. The situation will be monitored carefully and tropical cyclone advisories will be issued if necessary.
Severe weather is no longer occurring in the Peninsula and Gulf Country districts and the warning for these districts is CANCELLED.
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 am AEST Sunday.
Warnings are also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 219. The Bureau and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services would appreciate warnings being broadcast regularly.
