Some good totals around everywhere but here it seems...

Spent a while planting out some Taro and other stuff today....nice day for it with just some light showers and rain about...probably less than 50mm so far today...

Cant believe how much rain you are getting up in Mareeba the last 2 months, Simmo...it must be looking positively lush..!

Be interesting to hear the 24 hr Cairns totals in the morning if you guys are already around 200mm for the day..

Make that 12.1m at Daintree Village - HIGHEST on record at that site, previous record was 12m in 1956, although 12.4m was recorded in 1901 at a different gauge location

http://www.bom.gov.au/qld/flood/brochures/daintree/daintree.shtml

According to this document, the record flood level at Daintree Village is 12.4m, recorded in 1901.

At 10:36pm Saturday, the river was at 11.8m and still rising.

The 1996 level was 11.81m

By the morning there will surely be a new record.

EDIT - Beat me to it, ol mate

wow Nimbuss1 check out those T-storms embedded in there also, they don't seem to be making it down to Cairns though. Thes storms must be the ones the BOM is referring to in your post above.

My Davis Wx clicked over to 260mm here for the 24hrs from 11.30pm yesterday.

Amazed to see Mulgrave river catchment hasn't copped much in way of flooding rains at this stage, no doubt it will soon.
