To mourn the passing of the rain, as one should in a dry continent smile its always dry soon enough but you can never be sure when the wet will come back

A dry period now for a little while, maybe some showers this afternoon

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.

Came across this on twitter last night

DId the banana crops get affected by the floods? I ask as my local Woolworths has bumped up the price to $4.90 a kg, IGA TO $5.70 and the local vege shop to $5.95 a kg. Seems expensive for this time of year.

4.8mm overnight. Once this low goes it looks like it will be mostly dry for at least a couple of weeks. Most likely we will not see anything significant till the end of the month maybe even till March.
Not going to lie, I am happy with a few weeks reprieve. The rain that falls now really is doing nothing. Dams full, creeks and rivers flushed.

61% to go in excess water volumes, should lower faster as levels get closer to 100%, Then we have a safe storage volume for the Ross Dam. So looking forward to some hot sunny days.

Another 40mm in the past 24hrs, that makes 21 days straight with rain, and only 9 rain free days this year.

Did not get my wish for no more rain. About to tick over to 30mm. Meteye was only forecasting 0-8mm at my location for today.
Mareeba TM gauge is on 33mm from an earlier storm. Should be ~40mm on the 10pm update.

Looks like it will be a very wet night

Call me crazy but disappointed we didn't get more rain out of the convergence/low which BOM was harping on about on the radio Thursday which could possibly deliver 100mm or more to Cairns region; models stated otherwise though.

I wonder if Cairns airport 1042.4mm will end up passing Townsville's total so far of 1,421.4mm for 2019?

Wish I could have given you mine Pac, nearly 40mm here. Mareeba alert got 49mm.
Some other good falls around with Flaggy Creek being the highest with 76mm.

GFS going with some stormy weather this afternoon with falls ~30mm. EC saying 2mm. Hoping EC is on the money though GFS was closer yesterday.

Me too. I love this weather. Perfect temperature perfect humidity. I like it humid. I'd love another 2 or 3 months of this.

11mm since 2.30pm yesterday when I got home.

A couple flashes and a really loud close crack of thunder yesterday evening, mostly sprinkling on and off 24/7.

Have had some nice crackle and bang up here this arvo, 55 mm yesterday and 7.5 from a few passing cells over the last few hours. McLeod river was 1.8-2 mt this morning cutting the highway north to Cook Town but dropped back a bit through the day to 1.2 ish probably be back up again now though witgh the recent rain passing through. Bushy Creek at Julatten was up to .5 over night but is apparently open again now, we just got in and out to pick the Kids up yesterday arvo as the local Copper closed it about 4.30 pm yesterday arvo came up from .175 on the way in and .350 on the way out over about 30 40 minutes.

I was hoping to be able to listen to the rain on the roof all night, last night. Such a relaxing sound.

Started looking good a bit before 21:00h, but then only about 17mm for the next 10 hours. 25mm all up.
