Okay Iíll start lol. Happy new year all, hope we have all had a good start to the year so far and a safe one. Hoping this year is our year in terms of rainfall, definitely canít be worse than 2018. My total was 472mm which is just over half of Gladstoneís yearly mean average of 897mm. How did everyone else fair around CQ?

Just no end in sight.. seems the heat this summer is not in Central Qld. We've only had 6 days in the 30's this summer. (Not complaining about that). only 3 of those 6 were over 30.

I have found a way to guarantee rain at home. Bring in my fencing contractor.

We have been so grateful to 'Team Rubicon' a group of returned vets who come into disaster areas and lend a hand. They took a day to pull down our old boundary fences so we could have our contractor get on with the job of the new fence. Without them this would not be happening for months since I am out of work due to an operation.

Not a lot of rain but enough to keep the piggies very happy.

Ring the BoM and ask them Vinnie instead of constantly complaining about the forecasts . It's very difficult to pin point how much rain might come from a decaying Low in any given area. There are plenty out west that would love the 20 mm you got over night.

Be nice to get another 100mm or so, but I seriously doubt that will happen.

14.5mm here in the gauge.

Definitely wont happen. Maybe another 5-10mm if we lucky.
Almost about time the SWW was cancelled. Appears to be nothing left of this system.

Very little happening down here. A few light showers here and there but the cloud cover is keeping the temp down.

So that could be it for the wet season hey?
Nice while it lasted, grass is a bit green, not enough to get any crabs running but there's always next year. Bring on 2020.

Unfortunately the season has shaped up similar to the past four.

An entrenched high off New Zealand means the stagnant inland trough just sits there month after month. The last few years have relied on rare events (cyclones mostly) to bring heavy rains.

27mm for me from this event.

Is that what has given us mainly E or SE winds for over 2 weeks?

I am serious.

Last year (2018) figures for ROC AP.

Jan - 84mm
Feb - 118mm
Mar - 33.4mm
Apr - 20mm

2018 was a very poor wet season with the season ending in late FEB18. Now due to the extreme dry and El Nino like conditions of the last several months and the fact we wont see the MJO back in these parts till late FEB19 or even MAR19 I would say 2019 is going to be an even worse wet than 2018. So yes I would think that the season is now over for us. Maybe 50mm in FEB and less then 10mm in Mar & Apr. See how it goes.
