There is an error in the thread title, it says "wet season"

Can it be changed to "dry season"

We had 5.4mm yesterday and 2.2mm overnight. Things are fairly dry when you're getting excited about a rainfall total that will disappear in evaporation within a few hours. On a positive note we have surpassed our January total already.

We were out not far from home last night. It rained proper rain there for a bit so they would have got lots more. As soon as we turned into our road it was dry.

Hopefully we will get some more. We need it.

Looking like the first three quarters of February might be a writeoff for rain as well.

If it is not the high in the Tasman sea, it is the monsoon trough giving us endless drought.

Looks like a heatwave in Rocky from this time next week, will wait and see if it happens . GFS has 35 deg Sunday, 37 on Monday and 40 on Tuesday, OCF also is showing this heat.

Hope it's not like back in late November .

If Rocky got as much rain as Townsville had , would the effects be even worse?

No point speculating as it is extremely unlikely to happen.

We do not generally get the monsoon here, unless something drags it down, then it zooms back pretty quickly anyway.

I think the BOM Rocky page describes how Rocky is in between, where it's too far south to get any regular monsoonal influence and to far north to get any benefit from the passage of southern cold fronts.

Another nothing here.

The solar pump now is struggling to keep the water supply up. Endless overcast days means little electricity.

Same here, I'm running my solar bore pumps on a couple of small generators to keep the troughs and tanks topped up during this cloudy period in what is a seemingly endless dry season.

Vinnie, anything other than this boring 23-31c days with little rain to speak of. At least if the heat builds hopefuly it will lead to rain or storms.

It's trying very hard to rain here. But the atmosphere is just to dry and stable with La Nina like conditions delivery just cloud cover but no rain.

I do not think I have ever seen so many overcast days with no rain.

It has been over a week now since the sun went away.

La Nina is associated with wetter than average conditions.

A shower here. A scud there. Have made it to 25ml over the last week/10 days. It has managed to lift my citrus trees spirits.

Nothing here. Storms get to within a few k's then die.

In the 25 years we have been here I have never seen our place so dry. The dams so low.

Hopefully the good flood that always ruins a good drought won't be too bad.

There wont be any flood for a long long time I feel.
I think were well into an unprecedented and extended period of suppressed rainfall that could last 7-10 years, and set all kinds of new records for drought in this area of Qld.

Ergon did a planned power cut here 8.30 to 12.30midday lucky they had it back on an hour earlier.

No air con/fans etc.

Lawn seems to be growing but we do have a sand spear so water daily , the growth in 9 days was phenomenal. At the moment though since mowing it looks brown .

I reckon we will see some decent rain in March and April but not enough to make up for the deficit for the past 2 months.

I just hope when our visitors from New Zealand visit us in mid May it isn't humid and warm . Hopefully normal temps for May by then..

Also how can Rocky get 40 deg next Thursday with SE winds ? That is what they are saying and 38 deg on Friday with S winds.

Seems odd to see heat with that wind direction doesn''t it ? Anyone know why?
