Here's some good footage, as you can see currently adds very little to the flow of the Barron. only 25% of the Barron's catchment is above lake Tinaroo.

Looks like some more fast moving showers on the way.

Great footage there RF. Thanks for sharing the link. Will take a drive out there today or tomorrow.

Has been a bit wet here. 91mm so far. Would be great to get the allusive 100 before 9am but do not think its possible.

Just on the earth nullschool page.
Looks to be a little low just off the coast on the monsoon trough , that could change things fairly quickly.



Cheers

The Mareeba Barron river height is still not reporting properly. How does the device work? Is it like a float sliding up and down pole?
Looks like is gets stuck at a certain point but slowly loosens whatever is stopping it each time the river goes up. You can see each time it goes up it can move a little higher before it gets stuck.
Anyways I am sure the council are fully aware and have reported the fault.

Another 67mm down here overnight.

I will have to try and get down to the Ville Wednesday/Thursday to help clean up the Old Fellas place. He was lucky, just outside the flood zone, but still had a lot of water through his garage and bottom rooms. He said this morning he could hear the river raging. Not far from Blacks Weir.

Agreed Marakai.
Sun is shinig at the moment. A week or 2 of dry weather would be nice now.
Does anyone know what the wettest 7 day period around Cairns is? Has it ever been as wet as some of areas around Townsville have been?

Just broke my highest DP record again with 27.5c. No wonder I was sweating so much. DP been hovering around 27c all day and zero wind since 11:30am too. Yuk!!

Just had a quick check and compared 7 consecutive rainfall days at Cns airport 902.8mm in 1981 against Tsv airport 1050mm in 2019; Tville blitz Cairns by 147.2mm for title holder over the 2 cities...Great achievement but i'm sure it wont be long till Cairns ups it wink

Townsville aero has the higher 24 hr record 548.8mm in 1998
Cairns Aero record 24hrs 402mm in 1967

Overall Cairns has wetter months and years over Townsville of course smile

Reckon they can keep that record for a while Pac, Imagine all that coming down over the Cairns catchment area on a High tide ?

looks like that low has moved north east a tad to just over Canobie in the Gulf country at the moment, wonder where it will end up, off the coast or ??? .

Thanks for that Pac. Townsville definitley has us beat for the short term totals. Hopefully our region does not beat any of those records while I am here. Hahaha.

3.8mm today. Hopefully things can start to dry out a little before that low starts to head towards us.

The waterfalls on the pyramid have probably not run for so many consecutive days in a good while

If it doesn't rain again in the next 24hrs I will be thinking about applying for drought relief lol

Some things I don't wanna see...

But yes, we're clearing up, ripping out dead veggies, even planting seeds (what a hope!) and pruning the pink bauhinia in the atrium, seems we don't need total shade after all, it sure surged ahead with wet feet.

This heat is atrocious. Blinking is making me sweat, let alone normal daily activity.
Can someone tell me why the pressure is so low at 996 when the actual low is so far away?
