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 4:59 pm Sunday, 6 January 2019.
Heavy rain and damaging wind gusts to develop between Alva Beach and Sarina from Monday evening

Weather Situation: At 4pm AEST Sunday, ex-tropical cyclone Penny was located in the Coral Sea near latitude 17.0 degrees south, longitude 154.5 degrees east, about 740 kilometres east to northeast of Bowen.
Over the next few days, the system is forecast to move further west towards the tropical east coast of Queensland, most likely as a tropical low. There is still some risk that the system will redevelop into a category 1 tropical cyclone over the western Coral Sea. However, regardless of its status, heavy rainfall and damaging winds are likely to develop with its passage.
Areas of heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, are expected to develop over the southern flank of the system from Monday evening. Heavy rain should initially develop about coastal areas between Alva Beach and Sarina, and extend inland during Tuesday. Six hourly rainfall totals between 140mm and 180mm are possible, with isolated heavier falls in excess of 200mm possible.
Damaging winds, with peak gusts of around 90km/h may develop over the Whitsunday Islands from Monday evening or Tuesday morning.
Locations which may be affected include Mackay, Bowen, Ayr, Proserpine, Collinsville, Hamilton Island, Eungella, Alva Beach, Airlie Beach and Clare.

The next Severe Weather Warning will be issued by 11:00 pm AEST Sunday.

Just thought I'd update the SWW:
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.

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.

The GFS model has been consistently showing an active moonsoon trough developing at the end of this month, looks promising.

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
