Dry and sunny, with patchy cloud, on Maggie. Thank the Gods the rain has stopped. Riding the pushy around Nelly and you can smell the mud and mould.
Fingers crossed the Coral Sea stays friendly and dosen't throw up a TC.

Ross Dam 136.98% at,39.85m at 39.85m at 3.02am, great to have sunny hot days, dry everything out and help kill the mould everywhere, if your lucky enough to have some white vinegar. Looks like no cyclone in the coral sea will get to the QLD coast by any of the forecast models, which is good because it is the last thing we need, that and more rain in any form.

Is it dropping because they are releasing water ?

Vinnie, yes dropping level is due to dam releases, and releases are likely to continue until the dam level returns to the full supply level which is the 100% level

Ross Dam 124.41% at 3.59am, not long and the Ross Dam will be at safe storage level of 100%. Earthen Embankment needs a bit of repair work, noticed pink flags along the wall marking damaged points, many with sandbag repairs that where placed during the event. The heat is great for helping drying things out a bit quicker, although people need to be careful working in it, got a bit of heat stress yesterday cleaning up. Only going to get hotter as the week progresses. Take care and keep hydrated.

Wild fluctuations in dew point as the onshore and offshore flows play tug of war over our region.

At 1327 yesterday it hit 42.1C at my place in Rasmussen. Coupled with 60% RH it was bloody brutal when we got home.

Just read that Townsville is moving to Level 2 water restrictions on the 17th of March. Still I thought no restrictions would be needed ?

City Councils have never been known to employ 'the sharpest tools in the shed'.

Ross Dam 107.63% at 5.15am, Water restrictions have become a culture of the Townsville City council, I expect the restrictions will be lightened up when the Ross dam is backed up by the new Burdekin dam pipeline, will only believe it when it happens. Most long term Townsville residents have never known life without water restrictions. Long Term protection from extended periods with no rain, remember the dreaded Townsville DOME.

Perth dam levels are 50.5 percent and will have the same restrictions as Townsville eg 2 days a week with a sprinkler and hosing whenever.

Oh ok the webpage says Level 2 water restrictions are now in force within the Townsville area.

But then below it says moving to Level 2 in March .

Needs to be updated and remove that banner.

I meant to post last week but got a bit sidetracked..

My final total between 26/01 - 06/02 is 1,516 mm here in West End. I always get a cyclone/ threat of a cyclone or rain for my birthday on 01/02, this year the weather excelled itself.

Jenny Hill was brilliant, Disaster Management good, SES and Emergency Services fantastic. Thank you to all Defence boys and girls who helped out (we are SO lucky we are a garrison town).

Social media was very helpful during the crisis and adversity brought people together. There were a few tools that were pig ignorant but they were quickly shut down (adminstrators of all social media sites are to be commended for their diligence).

The funniest tweet I thought was from BoM when they measured the flood water over the Burdekin Dam in units of crocodiles and someone else came straight back and measured it in xxxx stubbies.

We were lucky here in West End, my heart goes out to everyone who lost homes, belongings, memories.

Keep strong!!
