Initial Flood Watch for coastal catchments between St Lawrence and Cape Tribulation
Issued at 12:30 pm EST on Monday 7 January 2019

Flood Watch Number: 1

River level rises above the minor flood level are possible across the Flood Watch area from Tuesday onwards.

Heavy rainfall associated with ex-tropical cyclone Penny is expected to develop over parts of the Central Coast overnight Monday into Tuesday. The focus for heavy rainfall will then move north during the week, most likely reaching southern parts of the North Tropical Coast overnight Wednesday.

Catchments between Cape Tribulation and Ingham are currently wet and river levels will respond quickly to the forecast rainfall. Elsewhere, catchments are drier and will initially be less responsive to rainfall.

Heavy rainfall may also lead to local flooding.

A severe weather warning for heavy rainfall and damaging winds is current for parts of the Flood Watch area.

Catchments likely to be affected include:

Daintree River
Mossman River
Barron River
Mulgrave and Russell Rivers
Johnstone River
Tully River
Murray River
Herbert River
Black River
Ross and Bohle Rivers
Haughton River
Burdekin River downstream of Burdekin Falls Dam
Don and Proserpine Rivers
Pioneer River
Connors, Isaac and Styx Rivers and Plane Creek

Severe Weather Warning
for DAMAGING WINDS and HEAVY RAINFALL
For people in parts of Herbert and Lower Burdekin and Central Coast and Whitsundays Forecast Districts.

Issued at 4:42 pm Monday, 7 January 2019.
Heavy rain and damaging wind gusts expected to develop between Alva Beach and Sarina on Tuesday.

Plan Image
Weather Situation: At 4pm AEST Monday, ex-tropical cyclone Penny was located in the Coral Sea near latitude 18.1 degrees south, longitude 152.6 degrees east, about 630 kilometres east-northeast of Townsville. Ex-Penny was moving west southwest at 14 kilometres per hour.
Ex-tropical cyclone Penny is expected to continue its westward movement, and the system is likely to cross the tropical Queensland coast some time between late Tuesday and early Thursday. The most likely scenario is that ex-Penny will remain a tropical low, but there is a moderate risk that the system will redevelop into a category 1 tropical cyclone before it crosses the coast. Regardless of its status, heavy rainfall and damaging winds are likely to develop about parts of the Queensland coast as ex-Penny approaches.
Areas of heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, are expected to develop in coastal and adjacent inland areas between Alva Beach and Sarina on Tuesday. Six hourly rainfall totals between 140mm and 180mm are possible, with isolated heavier falls in excess of 200mm.
Damaging winds, with peak gusts of around 90km/h, are expected to develop about exposed coastal and island locations in the warning area on Tuesday, particularly about the Whitsunday Islands.
Locations which may be affected include Mackay, Bowen, Ayr, Proserpine, Collinsville and Hamilton Island.
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 pm AEST Monday.

For people in Central Coast and Whitsundays and parts of Herbert and Lower Burdekin and Capricornia Forecast Districts.

Issued at 4:56 am Tuesday, 8 January 2019.
Heavy rain and possibly damaging wind gusts expected to develop between Alva Beach and Yeppoon later today.

Plan Image
Weather Situation: At 4 am AEST Tuesday, ex-tropical cyclone Penny was located in the Coral Sea near latitude 18.8 degrees south, longitude 151.2 degrees east, about 340 kilometres east-northeast of Bowen. Ex-Penny was moving west southwest at 14 kilometres per hour.
Ex-tropical cyclone Penny is expected to continue its westward movement, and the system is likely to cross the tropical Queensland coast some time between late Tuesday and early Thursday.

Regardless of its status, the system should continue to produce heavy rainfall and damaging winds over its southern flank, and these conditions are likely to develop within the warning area as ex-Penny approaches.
Areas of heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, are expected to develop in coastal areas between Alva Beach and Yeppoon during Tuesday morning and extend further inland during the day. Six hourly rainfall totals between 140mm and 180mm are possible, with isolated heavier falls in excess of 200mm.
Damaging winds, with peak gusts of around 90km/h, are expected to develop about exposed coastal and island locations in the warning area on Tuesday, particularly about the Whitsunday Islands.

Meh so much waffle from the BoM, so little actual action. Is it any wonder people ignore Bom warnings when this keeps happening.

Yes RC Ross dam was at 100% in March, water use by Townsville has dropped it to 64%. The dam is very shallow, is subject to huge evaporation loss combined with a miniscule catchment area means its basically not keeping up with the population expansion which is why the 40klm long pipeline to part of the Burdekin irrigation scheme is vital to keep us supplied with water. By this time last year we were on Level 3 water restrictions. Townsville city council dropped that to level 2 which we are still at.

A lot of areas in the warning area have had plenty of action, rainfall wise.

Hamilton island had gale force winds last night.

The winds and rain could have been worse based on what the models were reporting (and the general unpredictability of the Low), so the BOM issued SWW's. And rightly so.

40-50mm easily in BG, was a few good bangs as well.

Oddly, Townsville was removed from the SWW but I'm guessing that may change as the day goes on.

need ex Penny to drift slightly further west, at the moment convergence zone is stuck 100km to our east.

400mm under than band. last month it was 100km to our north, just missing out again.

my biggest concern is if penny takes off again through the day and moves the trough with her, then the trough will move thru during our diurnal minimum in the afternoon and well get bugger all. need her to stay put until night fall and into tomorrow morning.

crazy watching the sky outside, dark and storm with thunder to my east, blue sky to my west and north.

22mm in kirwan.
