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?

The Monsoon Trough and lows can form anywhere along it especially if its vigorous.

It's just under 30°, so it's not hot, but with a high RH and DP it is oppresive at times.

Nice day out here. Comfortable temperature and humidity, whatever it was.

Got the yard mowed, between showers. Not quite do the laundry weather yet though.

Sun water have opened the “left dam crest” of Tinaroo for viewing the spillway. They say the last time it went over the spillway was March 2012

Is any of this making it's way into the headwaters of the Darling river, or is it way too far north and east?

New record again today for highest DP with 27.8c. It was gross. Only 8mm here and very happy that the heavier rain keeps missing me as 8mm is enough to make everything very squelchy again.

My pressure also went down to 995.67hPa today which is by far my lowest since being here. Was thinking I need to re calibrate my base station but if other people recorded low pressure maybe not.

I really don't think the headwaters of the darling river are anywhere near this.

Rain seems to keep moving further south, so you never know. Can keep our fingers crossed for them.

At the moment some water is headed down the Georgina, Dianantina, Thomson/Barcoo rivers, all of which pretty much head to Lake Eyre.

Bit of thunder.

Very strange. A narrow line of rain is moving down from the north, straight over us, not missing us.

The headwaters of the Darling River system start in south eastern Queensland & NE NSW west of the Great Dividing Range.

I believe most of the rivers west of the Great Dividing Range in northern Queensland feed the Diamantina & Georgina rivers which empty into Lake Eyre given enough rainfall.

We had maybe an hour of real proper sunshine late this morning. But the rain has just come back.

Whaddya think that low will do? Will it continue to sit there or follow me over to Cairns tomorrow morning as Windy would have it do?

I like it where it is. I want another month of this weather at least, even if I start sprouting mushrooms.

First morning without a reading in a long while.

Here is a link to a very good River Catchment Map from the BoM.

17mm at 6am 24 hours since 6am yesterday.
Was still sprinkling very faintly. Foggy and damp.

In Cairns, can't believe how it's dried up.
