Wow, by the looks of the radar you guys in Townsville are experiencing or about to experience the heaviest line of storms so far. It really is incredible the persistent and quite localised nature (for the heaviest of the heaviest rains) of this monsoonal activity.

Crazy weather!

Our Ross River Dam is at 201% (catchment area 750 km≤).

Our Burdekin Dam is at 129.9% (catchment area 114,220 km≤ - England is 130,373 km≤ for comparison)

Total rain in my rain gauge since Australia Day (26/01) is 818 mm, being 2.68 FEET.

Far out!

Nice breeze drying things out, but wasnít game enough to squirt the weeds.

Doing the same here, SF, two hours water blasting over 1000 slippery black concrete pavers in our atrium, - did think I'd only be doing it after the wet.
Same again tomorrow with pathways maybe if this weather holds up.

Yes Dormant, all you could here this morning was lawn mowers.

Starting to get a few showers flow through now. Moving fast.

This Low is reminding me a lot of that one a few years back that sat over the Gibson desert for ages.

What does happen if Tinaroo goes over? I asked a colleague today who has lived here all his life (40 years) and he didnít know - and good old Google didnít help.

So far as I can see the weatherzone forecast is at odds with the BOM forecast for Cairns - Sunday. BOM indicating quite a bit 30 - 70mm, WZ 10-20mm


Anyone else have an idea of what might show up?

Getting pumped down here at Mission at the moment. Gone from 3mm at 5pm to up over 70mm. Most of that falling in the last half hour.
