Should see some great storm activity today/tomorrow. Should be a little slower moving too hopefully. 6.4mm here.

Feeling very steamy this morning.

Extremely oppressive here. Stuff all breeze. Just took the old dog for a lap on the beach, we both burned out quick and headed for home.

Might see some nice showers over the next couple of days as the low tracks to our inland bringing in some nice NE and E seabreezes. Who knows, it is not like old Penny to do what is expected of her.

No breeze here either. Last nights storm blew the tops off my compost bins, even though held down with slabs of marble. I heard a few things go bang last night but wasn't that keen on getting wet... Glad my garden was though.

35mm wasn't too bad. It went right over us for a change.

Great to see you getting a share of rain 28. I know all too well the frustration of missing out when you really need it. Both physically and mentally.

And some quite fierce storms due into Cairns shortly... or not if it fades on the coastal plain... Sadly the one up here isn't even occluding the sun and probably moving away,

Definitely going to plonk onto Cairns but a large part of the mass is going to go east of the city it seems

Wonder why Cairns was left off in the warning?

Can't be to keep the tourists happy?
