Severe Weather Warning
for HEAVY RAINFALL
For people in Herbert and Lower Burdekin and parts of North Tropical Coast and Tablelands, Northern Goldfields and Upper Flinders, Central Coast and Whitsundays and Central Highlands and Coalfields Forecast Districts.
Issued at 4:50 pm Sunday, 27 January 2019.
High risk of heavy rain and flooding across areas of north Queensland into tonight.

Weather Situation: The monsoon trough currently extends across far north Queensland and is forecast to shift slowly southwards over north Queensland into Monday.
Heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, is forecast around the tropical east coast and adjacent inland areas between Innisfail and Bowen today. Six-hourly rainfall totals of 100mm to 150mm are likely with locally heavier falls possible with thunderstorms. LOCALLY INTENSE RAINFALL AND FLOODING will remain a risk tonight with six-hourly rainfall totals in excess of 250mm possible.
Heavy rainfall may extend southwards towards the Whitsundays and adjacent inland areas on Monday, while contracting from the north down to around Ingham. Depending on the movement of the monsoon trough it is possible that this heavy rainfall may extend a little further south than currently forecast.
Locations which may be affected include Townsville, Giru, Collinsville, Palm Island, Ingham, Innisfail, Tully, Cardwell, Bowen, Proserpine and Charters Towers.
Although areas north of Innisfail, including the Daintree, have been removed from the current warning area there continues to be the risk of severe thunderstorms with locally heavy rainfall in the area. If this scenario were to occur, Severe Thunderstorm Warnings would be issued as necessary.
A Flood Watch is current for catchments from Innisfail to Proserpine.

06Z GFS throwing out an interesting forecast for rainfall around Mackay and just to the west of Mackay... 1,128mm! The majority of that falling between 4pm Wednesday and midday Thursday. Appears to plonk a nice little convergence zone and enhanced vorticity over that region for a prolonged period with NNE winds meeting E winds at the surface. Probably won't happen but interesting nonetheless given that to date, Mackay has mostly been considered to be too far south to get any of the decent rainfall action. Such a dynamic situation...

267mm for the last three days here.

That broad low in the gulf area is massive with the monsoon winds north of it and curling around to give that beautiful NE feed of rain. This could be the start of a BIG WET - I haven't seen one for ages.

BTW Rainrunner went for a run in the rain this arvo! shocked
