Interesting to see BOM forecasting up to 300mm for Cooktown Tuesday and up to 200mm on Wednesday; not often you see get to see this.

Yeah Pacman according to forecasts it seems to be a foregone conclusion that the Low/cyclone will track back across the cape into the coral Sea.. pretty wet for the North of Cairns folk....


But what really annoys me is this afternoon's headline from the idiots at the "Daily Mail"..

"Thousands are told to brace for Cyclone Penny as devastating tropical storm bears down on Australia's coast"


I think we are desperately in need of legislation to stop tabloid Journalism and facebook/social media sites purporting to be real news...maybe we are already past the point of no return...is the world already too far gone..too dumbed down..?

The danger of inflated reporting is 'the boy who cried wolf to many times'
If TC's are over dramatized un-necessarily and repeatedly, and nothing much eventuates .People stop listening and send news to the keeper and yawn
Then when a real emergency occurs people send it to the keeper and become complacent.

I absolutely agree. It's down-right dangerous. Scaremongering at its best (worst). The great unwashed believe it, people at work were talking about how they had to prepare for a Cat 4, I have no idea where they got that titbit from...

Sigh...

Anyways, what are people's thoughts on the rain for Cairns area????

I would like to point out that now the MT has formed we have had no rain. If the current model forecasts come to pass we will have no real rain for the next 10 days.
I have always said that I find MT's to be a let down most of the time.
Wettest December on record for a lot of locations with no MT. smile

Happy new year all.

What a windy night! Some pretty decent gusts woke me up regularly throughout the night.
Not feeling confident about any rainfall today. BoM saying 4-20 today and 8-30 tomorrow for MAP.

Happy New Year all.

Spent the night with friends down on the beach, camp fire crackling, live music in the background, and gentle breeze. Great night and great company.

Ended up with 3308mm for the year out of my tin. A tiny little bit different to the huge figures of around 700mm out in Charters Towers.

Not sure what New Year Penny is going to end up doing but like most women I am sure it will be whatever she wants😜

The further north she goes now the more likely we will get something if and when she returns. But you are right in that we will get diddly squat as she travels east

Sounds awesome Westy, do you know the last Cyclone crossed at Weipa?

Will be interesting to see how you guys fare with this system as im sure the BOM will be paying close attention to the obs there as Penny crosses over.

Cooktown 300mm and Cairns 80mm forecast rainfall have all been quashed which was feared would happen as this setup has shown before with any GOC cyclones feeder bands being blocked when another low pressure system forms close by in the coral sea.

With this setup we need TC Penny back in the Coral sea to witness anything noteworthy or to drag the monsoon down over us.

Cairns aero humidity is down to 53%, good laundry drying weather.

Haha yeah what can i say.... not that i don't mind the break from the rain, however I do love the opportunity for a good rain lashing or cyclonic event while the season is on as we know it won't last forever wink

Lets hope the remaining months of the wet season are as generous to what's been had thus far.... Bring on a very wet 2019.

Happy New Year all.

Agreed. MORE MORE MORE. This is the wet season and I wait all year for it!! No such thing as too much - we are built for this.

And agree to all the SWW... people become complacent...

I turned the SWW notifications off a day or so ago.

Just too many meaningless SMS's & emails. Logged in and un-ticked 4 boxes and save changes. That's it.
And it's not about becoming complacent. These warnings were maybe a 5% chance of coming off.
I couldn't see any way to only receive the red & black, (2nd top & top) priority ones only.

It is when complacency sets in...I saw this a few weeks back.



As for weather, last year was a year of records.
Highest March rainfall (2064mm)
Highest Dec rainfall (1013)
Lowest rainfall of 0mm for Aug.
Longest dry spell since we have been here (12 years)
First time over 40,41,42deg.
longest stretch of consecutive days over 35 deg.

I am sure there is a few more, but can't think of them right now.

2018 was my 3rd wettest and the first time i have cracked the 5mtr mark since 2011 and only the second time nudging over 4mtrs since 2011.

2018 was a strange year for weather,Even some of the citrus did not know what is going on, i have one plant that has flowered on 5 separate occasions last year and is in full bloom again.

We would have no where to go, my mum's house is more unsafe than ours (she's the only close person I have here) and there's no way I'm leaving my pets behind and going to the shelter. Take our chances here.

If you are anywhere near the beachfront it would be wise to check out where your nearest Cyclone shelter is birdie....during cyclone Yasi all the beachside areas were wisely evacuated ..all the homes near the beach at Hull heads and Tully heads had the ocean surge through them and furniture,household goods and house components were strewn up to several hundred metres inland..

That evacuation from Holloways cost me $80 for a motel room way up the hill at Stratford.
A huge big room with rake ceilings. All was good 'til midnight when the power went off. Candles and more wine, but no aircon or fans. smirk

Why is it that they say yo go to the smallest room in the house as that is the safest, then if you get told to go to a shelter you are in a big stadium with louvre windows??
We are at the beaches in a yellow zone but weren't evacuated for Yasi. I felt safer at home with our dog anyway, we would never leave her.

Doubtful but wonder if that area of convergence will make it this far south. It has been moving steadily south overnight. Looks good on the 512km Cairns radar for 12 hours on the faster settings

Yasi went south of cairns so there was no chance of storm surge and it was so far south in the end that cairns got nothing anyway. As for sheltering. The smallest room in the house will be the strongest therefore less likely to collapse. Evacuation centres are built to stronger standards even though they are big.

Have been watching this also Simmo, seems the smaller low that was near Bougainville reef sabotaging our rainfall has now moved East and appearing over Willis Island on radar. http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDR412.loop.shtml#skip

Also of interest is this little number making an appearance in the northern hemisphere moving into the Gulf of Thailand and may cross into the Indian Ocean; not sure if this has been seen before?? http://www.metoc.navy.mil/jtwc/products/wp3618.gif

Nothing new about my old shed.
As the others have said , it's the wet season , bring it on.
Up to Cat 3 nothing much to worry about , 4 & 5 bring more danger and require a bit more in the preparation , but won't be going anywhere.

If I was beach front or even a few streets back totally different situation and I'd have plans for any event.
We live in the tropics , Tropical cyclones are apart of life here as is huge rain events and good blows, it's all part of the mix that makes this area such a great place to live.

I love watching how these systems have behaved this year , the chriss crossing of the peninsular as other levels influence their travel has been very interesting.

Only 9mm here this morning


Cheers

Zero forecast of rain, in my mind I think that's going to change suddenly at some point, rain on radar is slowly south moving at this stage.

GFS has been up and down the coast like a Jetstar flight for the last 24hrs. EC has been a little more stable but has also moved further north with each run.

The key will be how far out into the Coral See she moves and whether or not it is a continuous large recurve or a small stall and about face. This will determine region for landfall. The bigger the recurve, the further south the landfall.

Who really knows! If Owen taught us anything it is that we are merely guessing in the end. Playing with probabilities. I am cyclone ready, just a few pot plants to move.

Again a lovely day, not too hot and a gentle breeze.

Its pretty unusual for cyclones to travel poleward right? So can we assume that that counts out the far north if and when a recurve occurs? Surely it will continue in a south direction (even if it was WSW?)

That’s the thing, they usually don’t go poleward BUT sometimes they do....

They always go poleward unless there is something to steer them elsewhere. I get the feeling you mean they don't normally travel toward the equator.

It's a bit of a stretch even calling it a cyclone at the moment, with a central pressure of 996 hPa.

Looks a bit of a mess on the sat images.

992hPa as of 5:08am hickory.

Hopefully she washes out a lot more before she hits the coast. Might stand a chance getting some rain then.

Looks like beautiful weather for the next few days though. Will be able to see the grass grow.

Yes looks messy. Also has moved in a more easterly direction rather than SE. Perhaps this is why the coastal crossing is gradually moving north. Nobody seems to know when this thing is likely to turn and it seems to be moving a lot slower than they anticipated. Today will tell us a lot.

Stunning morning walk along the beach this morning. Can not complain about the weather right now.

That’s the thing, they usually don’t go poleward BUT sometimes they do....



Sorry... meant towards the equator... Dud moment for me.

Wow Penny is scooting a long faster than predicted. At 10am today she was already where they were forecasting, yesterday, for her to be at 4pm today. Wonder how this will affect things

Maybe it's not going to turn,SF.
Nothing is 100% certain with TC's, or any weather for that matter. The weather doesn't play by any rule book, but in another day we'll all know.

Made it to 36 point something here, then forgot to look again. Didn't think it got much hotter, but my mandarin and lemon trees are looking a bit sad. Might have to water them by hand tonight with the trigger action thingy on my hose, and hope there's no march flies around.

18c this morning, loving this weather.

Looks like things could start being a little stormy. It has been a while since we have had a storm now.

Models are all over the place with TC Penny this morning but the general consensus is a move north. I think it will be another 24-48 hours before we start to see some good agreement again.

GFS has Penny out in the CS the longest then crossing her as maybe a cat 1 around 12/13th between Innisfail and Ingham.
EC has her at a cat 1 crossing on the 10/11th between Port and Cairns.
CMC as a cat 1 just north of Cooktown on the 11th.

It's looking more and more likely that TC Penny is going to be a Cat Nothing fairly soon.

Good agreement with EC and GFS this morning. Both have her crossing as a TL on Wednesday night - Thursday morning. If this does happen I wonder if we will get a repeat of Owen when he crossed. Two zombie cyclones in one year. crazy

Sometimes looking at the radar, if there's any rain showing, I flick to 128km to make the rain area look bigger. Sadly, it doesn't mean (more) rain...

Just meaningless SWW notifications that were never going to happen. If anything worth taking seriously develops, I'm sure WZ and the forums will be flooded with news of it.

Thinking you may be right hickory. A few years ago, it may have been more relevant, and may be fine for people who aren't watching. But for me at Chillagoe, we're right in the corner of 3 weather districts and none of them relevant to us. Nothing ever makes it this far, whichever direction it comes from. grin

I'm sure that anything even close to being a threat will be all over the forums, and the media, so it makes the SWW's a bit unnecessary.

Looking like things could get a little wet wednesday evening through Thursday. Only problem is my sis is flying in wednesday night at 1045pm.
Models are all pretty much in agreement though it is still outside the 48 hour period that they are most accurate. If they are still saying the same tuesday morning then I will start thinking of plans to be able to get down the range to pick her up. Might have to spend the night in Cairns.

What's next, bit of rain for a day maybe from the remnants of Penny?

Still better than this time last year, first rains didn't show until around the 20th approx of Jan, this year we imitate the garden of Eden and look for more of the same - lovely

Yeah it was still brown out here till the end of Jan last year. We had 11.2mm the 16th, 17.8mm the 17th, 11.8mm the 18th and 33.8mm 19th. That was the start of the wet

Compared to green pretty much since the start of December this season

Latest update on Penny has hit going south, around TSV. Us being to the north means minimal rain right?

What are the factors that could nudge it a little north??

I am hoping for a bit of a soaking...despite the recent December drenching!

Is it too much to ask...?

8mm from passing shows this afternoon. Just getting piddly bits like that here and there. The best Owen could give us was 13mm of vertical rain, had hoped for more than that out of Penny.

We really really need something to replenish the water table.

Hopefully we should get something from ex penny. When ex owen crossed the first time there was plenty of rain to his north I think. Dont think we will see any big totals though.

I will be happy with 50mm over the next few days. Should be a few storms about too which will probably be pretty fast moving.

The rain is trying to belt down, but we're only getting widely spaced intermittent drops. Occasional short gusts of wind.
Force field reigns again...

Edit: added link to screenshot

Edit 2: I might actually be able to call this rain. And there might be 2 or 3mm in the gauge when it's gone. Fingers crossed. At least I won't have to water the plants. :))

What an awesome storm today. Only managed 7mm which was suprising but there were so many CGs and massive cracks from nearby strikes.
Put on a good show for my visitors.

The Biboohra rainfall data for December has been added. The site recorded 398.6mm which is 17.6mm less than I recorded.
It was the sites wettest December since records began in 1947 by 61.2mm. Previous record was 337.4mm back in 1975.

Feels like it is going to be a humid one today. Hopefully the storms kick in a little earlier. Maxed at 36.2c yesterday

Weather station reads 34.5 degrees here, but it doesn't feel that warm.

It's clock keeps getting slower, so I expect it's temperature readings will have to start failing at some stage soon.

35.9 degrees and 37% humidity
Mostly sunny, of course, but to the east are some very high puffy clouds building up and look like they're moving this way.

I've got to go to Atherton on Friday to get the airbags changed on the car, it will probably dump torrents over the road between Chillagoe and Almaden. They'll have to wash it beforehand to work on it, instead of afterwards...

Lights dimmed for quite a few seconds, and now it has just started to dump rain, a bright flash of lightning, and a big rumble of thunder. Looks good on the radar. Fingers crossed. Who needs Penny if this keeps up every day or so.

Edit:
http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDR192.loop.shtml#skip
It can't possibly miss us, can it? We'll get a couple millimetres out of it.

There goes another rumble. Nice.

Extremely oppressive here. Stuff all breeze. Just took the old dog for a lap on the beach, we both burned out quick and headed for home.

Might see some nice showers over the next couple of days as the low tracks to our inland bringing in some nice NE and E seabreezes. Who knows, it is not like old Penny to do what is expected of her.

No breeze here either. Last nights storm blew the tops off my compost bins, even though held down with slabs of marble. I heard a few things go bang last night but wasn't that keen on getting wet... Glad my garden was though.

35mm wasn't too bad. It went right over us for a change.

Wonder why Cairns was left off in the warning?

Can't be to keep the tourists happy?

So frustrating that storms get within a few KM's of us and die on the spot. It's infuriating!!

Went for a drive down to Edmonton(east of the highway) to try and get some photos of the lightning and it turned out to have very little good CG action. The sky was BLACK though. Got home just before it started flogging down. Got one very close bolt there but apart from that it was all just rumbles

Fingers crossed.

I've just watered the plants. Will it bring rain? Looking forward to a muddy drive out of here tomorrow, if I'm lucky. :-/

Doesn't work.... cry Unless you hang your washing and leave your windows down/open after watering your garden while dressed in nothing more than a towel and a Murkin while pretending to play video killed the radio star by the Buggles on bagpipes...

Hahaha marakai. You did forget to top up the pool and pump water into the rain water tanks though.

Hopefully some stormage again today. Steering will be bugger all this arvo so they will be very slow moving. What steering there is will push storms away from the coast. You will basically need one to build on top of you out here. Cairns will need storms to start over ocean.
Wonder if what is currently out at sea will make the coast?

Just started raining 45 minutes ago.
At half hour my neighbour noted 17mm.
Nice.
Little bit of thunder around.

Edit.... Is this 30 or 31mm? 😊😊😊

There is a chance of a storm but not holding my breath for anything exciting.

Yes DU, seems so. I was watching the radar off and on during the day and then knew it had hit home by the amount of water lying around. Must have been very localised as I have seen pics of flooding at Clifton shops car park yesterday. I reckon Palm Cove would have copped more.

Another 12mm overnight, including a nice patch of rain at about 5am.

Palm cove Surf Club had a video of a nice downpour on FB.

30.6mm

Weird weather out here. It feels like it's March with a cool dry breeze.

Did our season start early? Wonder if the magnetic fields have anything to do with it. The magnetic north pole has apparently accelerated to 50km per year, from Canada towards Siberia. So much faster they're having to update GPS software before they planned to. This surely must be having an effect of some kind.

I am not going to complain about the lower humidity days we are having atm. I am sure it won't last. The speed of the magnetic NP is amazing isn't it. I am not sure exactly what effect it would have on weather though. You would have to imagine it would do something.

Our planet’s history includes at least several hundred global magnetic reversals, where north and south magnetic poles swap places.
There can also be temporary and incomplete reversals, known as events and excursions, in which the magnetic poles move away from the geographic poles – perhaps even crossing the equator – before returning back to their original locations.

The last full reversal, the Brunhes-Matuyama, occurred around 780,000 years ago. A temporary reversal, the Laschamp event, occurred around 41,000 years ago. It lasted less than 1,000 years with the actual change of polarity lasting around 250 years.

It's so nice that it's...just...wet.

The last few years most of our rain has been from storms, not just nice rainy weather.

45mm at 6pm

Seemed to have rain every hr all day long, getting around 23mm for the day - feeling particularly wet. A few hrs more of it left to go yet if radar is any indication

I'd like this to continue for a few days more yet.
We had 45mm today by 6pm and a bit more since.

Nicked out and transplanted some tomatoes just before dark, and the rain had barely penetrated an inch into the potting mix in the garden bed. Everything below that was dry.

We really need lots and lots of rain to replenish the water table. The first few years I was living here, there was always water seeping out of the creekbank at the swimming hole, you had to be careful you didn't slip in the mud, all year. Now there's nothing out of the top 3/4 of the bank, and almost nothing out of the bottom section.

There's some good rain in those heavy showers,- just a shame the are moving so quickly.
Still, that's usually the case with the Sth Easterlies.

Wow great MTD. You would be above most places in cairns too.

Fingers crossed for a wet end to January. Does not look like anything significant for the next week or so.

My fella says he's done more mows since about the middle of Dec, than in the 4 months before that.

Enjoying this lovely weather while it is here. GFS have had a dumping for us starting in about 8/9 days for a few days now. They have a low in the gulf moving east. EC also have a low in the gulf but have it moving west. CMC have a low out in the CS.
Would be great if we get some nice broad lows giving rain to large areas and no TC spins up sucking all the moisture into one small area
