118 mm to 7am this morning.

Marakai: we were discussing the BOM climate outlook at home a couple of weeks back. It really goes to show that anything is possible nowadays and modern man understanding of climate is in its infancy.

Seems the BOM are no longer confident in the monsoon moving north in the FNQTC over the later part of this week as initially forecast. The two main models GFS and EC have run counter to what the BOM were forecasting keeping the convergence area/monsoon in the Herbert/Burdekin districts.

Your a brave man HF leaving Cairns during the Wetseason, I refuse to travel anywhere for fear of missing the rain or a Cyclone event smile Safe Travels.

You have to feel for the poor bugga's...Desert like conditions for years and then this evolving major flooding event..

Aren't there warnings signs around Redlynch Valley about possible floods? At least they don't have dam releases that can threaten, or dothey? As in... cCome back from work and house is gone.. for the greater good. Or.. Make your bed in your tinnie tonight.

Apparently Copperlode dam is a potential threat Dormant....Have these loudspeaker towers been installed yet...?....as well as a warning device they could be handy on Australia day to pipe out some AC/DC for local residents... wink

Haha Scott! you never know, Council may consider?

Cairns and Townsville neck and neck so far today- both at 44mm each, wonder which will be greater at 9am???

Fast n Furious downpour this afternoon in Portsmith, had to jet out of work and save the car from the rising waters, absolutely flooded down there!

Wow, a lot of water sitting off the coast right now.

Looks like I have touch over 30mm in the tank. Be good for a couple of dryer days, the lawn starting to get an odour up.

That's how I feel. Hate missing wet events. Hate even leaving Chillagoe if it's raining... :))
Before I lived here I used to go to Darwin only in the wet season.

That wasn't this morning. Could have been yesterday evening though, water everywhere at Manoora.

Don't suppose you've got mobile reception out there? Gave up on satellite TV here, decided to stream TV if I could be bothered enough. No dropouts in rain. :))

Thanks for the drone footage Pacman.
