Really belting down again at Holloways.
A few days of sun would be nice to dry things out a bit. The frogs have been going off most of the day.

Yeah not sure why BoM did not have this forecast. You could tell this was going to be a decent event for the coast back at the beginning of last week and nothing really change.
What has surprised me is how much rain has made it out here. Would be over 10mm here now taking the MTD to around 40mm. Fantastic total for April

DP down to 18c and very windy. The dry has arrived.

GFS has had something heading towards the coast at the end of its extended outlook for the last 36 hours. Would be awesome to get some rain at the end of April.

I love the rain, but hate this $hitty drizzly rain. Sometimes it drags on 'til nearly July before the sunny days kick in.

Don't think I've been sick of rain since my last Wet Season in Darwin 2008/9.😥

9mm this morning which makes 22 consecutive days of rain here totaling 695mm for the period. Pretty good effort!

2255mm for the year to date.

Had great plans to take advantage of the free green waste disposal at the dump which ends today, however all the rain and sodden ground hasn't allowed the opportunity to do so. Trailer is sitting stacked with green waste sinking into the lawn, hopefully get the opportunity today??

April would be my favourite month in Mareeba. You mostly get sunny days, lower humidity, perfect temps of 27-30c, mornings start getting a crisper feel and everything is still green and lush. It actually feels like spring down south.

Yeah, the rain can buzz off now. Bring on some sunshine and clear days.
We're all good for water now,- Tinaroo at 103.21% capacity and Copperlode still 31 mm above the spillway.

I never even took the doonah off the bed this summer. Other than those last 5 days of Nov with the 40°+ days (and warmer nights), and a few nights in Dec most evenings were 23° to 24°.

This year has been good, evening temp wise.

It sure is lovely dormant. I would say if got down to 16-17c. My Bull Arab has jumped up on my bed and pushed under the covers. I suppose I can leave her there as it is washing day.

Our water situation is still bad, even with a reasonable wet season. The creek is still low, and likely to dry up again before the end of the Dry. It will take years to replenish the water table. We really could have done with that low that devastated the Gulf Country.

You don't want that C@28. Apart from all the devastation it caused I would say it is not the best result for replenishing the water table. Too much rain too quick and majority just runs off. The wet season we have just had is probably the best type for getting moisture down deep. Lots of steady rain which means most of it soaked into the ground.

Most of this part of the country still has reasonable elevation and higher than the areas that were hit badly.

But having a few slow lows in a row would help considerably.

Just got another python, number 7 out of the Chook shed since Christmas. Only a small one of 3-4 meters or so this time around, killed our Top Rooster and a Young Turkey last week but was unable to digest them due to their size.
Will relocate this one tomorrow in spite of my My Inlaw's wishes, more than happy to give up a few egg laying poultry myself for the life of a Native beauty like this despite it's tastes for our Poultry.
That time of year at the moment when they are stocking up on a feed before the cold sets in. So far we are up a couple of 5 meter plus specimens of scrub pythons feasting on our chook's, I personally can spare the chooks as they are noisy MFkers. Even the young Kids are fascinated by the lumps in their stomachs when they actually get one swallowed.
We caught one 5 meter plus the other week with one of our young turkeys in it's gut, a good five meters plus specimen with a three month old turkey in it's gut and half digested sitting in our chook cage... What do we do ? Think about our intake of meat ?

Chopped it's head off with a machete, Shot it with a Four Ten shotgun , Hacked it with a Machete, Bashed it with a lump of wood or piece of steel.
MMMmmm Meat is bad MmmmK
No, I got it and put it in a feed bag, forced my 10 and 14 year old Daughters to drive it a good 30 KM away and let it go into the wild as always.

MMMmmm meat is bad.

Ha, Marakai, nice ending, and generous hearted of you.

I really enjoyed having chooks, watching them forage and scratching. They had a large run and a safe out the weather 8 foot packing crate I shut them up in at night.
Sadly everything wanted them for lunch, hawks, pythons arrived in series and we didn't want to kill so... we let them die of old age and never renewed.
Got bit by one 12 foot python waiting on top of the crate for breakfast.. sheesh.

Chilly morning, lovely, would love to spray weeds but still a few blobs out there on the radar, but dry enough to keep up the mowing.

You must get some huge ones (Pythons) over your way as well huh dormant, along with Quolls as well I guess ?
I used to work up at Cape Trib back in the late 90's working the Horse rides at PK's. Our chooks got smashed from every which way up that way and the only sort of long term survivors ended up taking shelter in our living room over time roosting in the kitchen, Scrambled and Egg were the last two out of a total of ten Hens that we started with and ended up moving to Cairns with us.

We have a massive weed spray task at hand, Rattle pod and Noogoora burr all over the place, along with some invasive Cats Claw vine the family inadvertently introduced here 20 +years back from kuranda.


Winter is coming, been plenty windy the last week or so heralding the change of seasons, Bee Eater birds have arrived and the Bin chickens are out scavenging the dung beetles from the manure enforce, not to mention the crispy mornings the last week or two up here since the rain quit.

Plus Game of thrones will be back soon as well smile Time to sharpen the chainsaw blade and get me some sweet smelling Cyprus wood for Winter.

Haha Windjana, could fit anywhere with Aussie slang wink

Today marks the first day haven't recorded any rainfall for the 24hrs to 9am this morning ending the 25 day run of wetness in the gauge.

Loving the weather at the moment, can open all windows and dry the house out, however, it looks short lived as more rain forecast for tomorrow through to Monday.

We see very little of the wildlife, Marakai, other than birds but that doesn't even include cassowaries, only their poops occasionally. With me, it's probably old age eyes since I wander around the house area wearing my reading glasses propped on my nose and never see the snakes wandering in. Hence partner is always disgusted...Why do I always come across the snakes, he whines as he walks across to neighbours boundary with it in the blunt 4 foot pruner jaws in the pitch dark.

Time to air out the doonas in this cooling weather though we're yet to see teen temperatures like Simmo.

Yes, it's still green, and the grass is still growing, although haven't really had that much rain since mid february, just the occasional shower.

Some fantastic roiling cloud to the east late this afternoon, looked like someone was getting some good rain.

All the mock orange is out at the moment, and the ants nexts are little volcanos, but both known to be wrong...

Yep feeling the cold the last few nights up here, a tad under 17 at 5.15 this morning in the shed here at home.

We used to get the odd White tail rat setting up home in the house up there, feral bloody things they are, hit them with a broom and they would barr up at you hissing away like you had no business interfering with their invasion of your house. Feral bloody pigs were the most common Animal I saw the whole time up that way, the odd Cassowary here and there, mostly on trips along the road in between Cape Trib and Mossman and then a few rare Tree Kangaroos in the car park for the walkway down to the beach.
The reptiles are everywhere, easiest way to find them is to have some chooks. The rarest animal I ever saw was Comedians, Jimoen was one in particular that turned out to be a complete (stab from a thorn starting with P and ending in rick) amongst other obnoxious celebrities, the entitlement was worse than the white tail rats.

Reckon we might be in for a Cooold winter this turn around.

Feeling like the dry season now. The cooler mornings are lovely though they are later than normal this year. Current min average for the month is 19.1c. My April min average is 17.3c. That should change quickly though as we usually start getting some 10c mins by the end of April.

GFS hinting at a return to showery weather around the 23rd which would be nice. Will see what they are saying towards the end of next week.

I love April!!

You can tell the dry season is here. No posts for 3 days.

Yeah the Dry-er season Simmo (for coastal dwellers)…

Still getting the Sou'easters and almost daily showery drizzle...


Bloody horrible weather I reckon...cold temperatures, cold wet ground, crap winds ...definitely the worst period of the year in coastal FNQ, IMO...

Hard to believe that there is such a difference Scott. I have been swimming in the pool today it is such a nice day. The odd cloud about but mostly sunny and only a very light breeze.
As I type this the is not a breath of wind. Looks like there is a bit of wind at the MAP though

No swimming here in the foothills today Simmo...currently 26c ..I see a gust recorded up to 59km/h at Lucinda earlier...I wouldn't describe it as a nice day...mostly overcast, gusty and dreary would be the best way to put it...

A cheeky 3mm in the late arvo early evening yesterday.

Sorry Scott but it looks like another perfect day up here though there is a bit of breeze around. To be honest though, the only reason I am able to swim in the pool is because it has solar heating.

Ah you are a tricky bugga Simmo... smile

The old black polypipe on the roof trick or something more fancy...?

25c here at the moment and the sun has just put in an appearance.. I don't expect for too long though...

Creek swimming is over till the beginning of next summer now...and the ocean is certainly not looking too inviting for the easter break..

The Normanton barra classic would be the place to be this weekend..Damn maybe next year..

Busiest boat ramp down here is the one on the North Hull. Lots of boats sitting around just waiting. Lots of cancellations in the last week apparently.

Just hung the washing out, have the radar loaded and watching the sky intently.😂🤞

Non stop drizzle tending to rain up here in Atherton, I can imagine 99% of the punters in the park are pretty pissed off with BoMs 40% chance forecast. Its friggin 100% for crying out loud.

Would imagine it is pretty chilly too RF.

Haha pretty much C@28. The amount of times I drive from Mareeba during winter and it is 26c and sunny here and in Atherton it is 16c and drizzling.

1mm here from this mornings drizzle. Keeping things cool too at 20c.

Another sh!tty day in Paradise..and just 24c..

Its been showering all day and the radar seems to be showing a pretty heavy rain band about to hit the coast from Tully to Cairns..

SF, the North Hull ramp is the only game in town if there is any breeze now..totally tide dependant though as the Hull heads bar can be a bugga of a thing to cross at times....we sometimes launch into the Hull at Carmoo and that will be our main ramp till Clump point is finished. ..

The Clump point ramp has been opened for the easter week...bit of a joke given the weather though..

Maybe they should do that to the tourists and just leave the Dingo's alone...

All Dog's evolved from the Wolf, each and every one of them, the only dispute is how far back domestic ones evolved from the base stock of the wolf itself.
The Dingo is nothing more than a descendant of the Asian hunting dog which arrived in Australia a mere 5-6 thousand years before White settlement according to DNA records. It was responsible for the loss of the Tasmanian tiger (The thylacine) on the Australian Mainland and also responsible for the wide spread loss of many native ground dwelling native species as well. The only reason the The Tassie Tiger and the The Tassie Devil ever existed after the arrival of thwe Dingo was the bit of Ocean between Tasmania and the mainland which occurred around 13 thousand years before present at the end of the last Ice Age.
The Tassie Tiger was a solitary hunter unlike the Dingo, so could not resist the pack like attacks that a descendant from the wolf presented on the Mainland of Australia, like wise the now extant Tassie Devil was no match for the larger sized dog/dingo on the mainland either despite it's pack like behaviour.

Mind you though there are still believable reports of Tassie Tigers still being seen up till today with a recent serious research project up here in FNQ after a credible sighting of multiple specimens in the same area by a credible witness so who knows ? One Of my Uni lectures just 7 years back swears that he and his brother saw a Tassie Tiger in PNG 15 years ago on a road cutting one night.

Sometimes Truth is very much stranger than fiction....


Edit to Add:

Forgot to add that the Thylacine was not a Dog, it was a Marsupial and not as such concommit Mammal of it's age.
Just to be clear.

Dingo study


What I find interesting about the above study is the objectives of the study and that an environmental scientist funded by an conservation group has come up with their particular findings...

This is the particular objectives of the study as stated in the Introduction....

"A sound understanding of the taxonomy of threatened species is essential for setting conservation priorities and the development of management strategies. Hybridization is a threat to species conservation because it compromises the integrity of unique evolutionary lineages and can impair the ability of conservation managers to identify threatened taxa and achieve conservation targets."

What it basically says to me is that Dingos need to be classified as a separate species in order to be given conservation status and distanced from the pest species of domestic dog.... with this in mind I am always a bit sceptical of the validly of findings of such a study with an automatic bias from the start....also interesting is that of all the media articles that picked up the study, I didn't see any references or analysis of the veracity of the parameters of the study at all...


The main conclusive "proof" seems to consist of skull measurements, coat colouring and the lack of dewclaws in the dingo...


So I don't know enough to discredit the study but its hard not to believe both dingo's and domestic pooches don't have the wolf as an ancestor...but then again I didn't believe studies from Monsanto that showed that Glyphosate is so safe you can drink it neat......

After having a bit of a poke around the web and despite Crowthers Dingo study being published in The Journal of Zoology I cant see much discussion or peer review on it at all...

Anyone seen anything out there..?...It certainly is an interesting topic....and it comes as no surprise to read this news story...

https://7news.com.au/the-morning-show/fr...-humans-c-71688

Its a similar situation to whats happening with cassowaries up here..but often its not just tourists to blame but locals also....


Back onto the weather...After seeing forecasts for a rainy easter it was awesome to see some sunshine....we also watched some brave boaters heading out off Clump point yesterday in some pretty sloppy conditions...a trip around the islands would have been Ok but a trip to the reef in a trailerboat would have been pretty ordinary..

Has been the coolest April for daytime temps since being in Mareeba but due to the lack of wind has not felt cold. The last few days have been pretty humid too.
Days are 1.2c below my average and nights are 1.1c above average.

Looks set to cool down even further next week with Max temps around 25/26c for MAP so probably 1c cooler than that at mine.

The dingo has been given its own species status, recognising that it is not descended from dogs or wolves.
https://www.australiangeographic.com.au/topics/wildlife/2014/04/dingo-declared-a-separate-species/
https://www.smh.com.au/environment/conse...0328-35onp.html
Scientists once thought that dogs descended from gray wolves. Now, through genetic studies, researchers know that dogs and wolves share a common ancestor instead of a direct lineage.

The rain was sporadic, it was raining on the north side of town, but not on the south side. we had showers 3 days in a row at the showgrounds.

It also rained most of the way home yesterday, and there was even rain in Townsville.

It has been 13 years since i have last been there, and it seems to have change a fair bit since then, it also seems much busier.

Townsville seemed still fairly green when we went though there, and also lots of long grass (compared with what it usually is).

Do the Dingos on Fraser island originate there or are they just human hunting dogs?

Thanks Redwatch…

Amphetamine....I was just reading an article that described Dingo's as Australias first feral animal...


Also where do Rainforest Dingo's fit in or is more of a term for Dingo's that are crossed with domestic dogs...?...I saw one supposed specimen at the Innisfail Croc farm 20 years back...it had more of an Alsatian type colouring ...



Geez what a cracker of a day...still get nightly showers with 52mm over the past 3 nights....the soil is very saturated and plenty of places I cant get the mower to without getting bogged...

The Fraser Island dingoes are reputedly some of the last remaining pure dingoes in Eastern Australia and to prevent cross-breeding, dogs are not allowed on the island.
According to DNA-examinations from the year 2004, the dingoes on Fraser Island are "pure". However, skull measurements from the 1990s detected crossbreeds between dingoes and domestic dogs among the population.

Up until 1995, there were no official records of dingoes attacking humans on Fraser Island. In April 2001, a boy named Clinton Gage wandered away from his family and was attacked and killed by several dingoes. Over 120 dingos were killed by rangers as a result of the incident, though locals believe the number was much greater. After the 2001 attack, four dedicated rangers were allocated dingo management roles and ranger patrols were increased. There are fines for feeding dingoes or leaving food and rubbish out which may attract them.

Seems they may have been up until the 1990's.

Looks like BoM think we will have a wet winter. I know for you guys on the coast this is not very appealing but for us up here this would be great. grin
Not that we have to get much rain to get above average

Also does anyone know why Atherton is marked as Atherton Water

Simmo,the climate outlook also suggests that it will warmer than average for that period also..that will be a relief for me after a cold last winter..

Personally its not so bothersome for me to have above average rainfall on the coast this time of year...

The problem is if it comes in the form of overcast, tradewind driven, drizzly rubbish that keeps the ground from drying out...

Weeks or months on end of that crap just about does my head in..


and yes it is drizzling here today.! eek

Yeah don't need or want a year of that [censored] weather, it is still to boggy to do to much up here. Can't put a tractor on much of the places that need spraying, we have managed to get all the fences back up , but in doing so have some decent tracks / bog holes that will need smoothing out when it every drys out.

Quite showery here today , started off with a nice morning but has turned to blustery showers, seems like a netflix kind of arvo, if the internet stays connected long enough... Phone has been out for almost a month now , with no sign of a fix being attempted. Telstra doing the cyclone side step and blaming everything on Trevor to get out of their service obligations frown

Ha ha Scott. You're right. It's a strange location. The Featherbeds stop easterly weather. Anthing from the Gulf wears out before it gets here. Storms from southwest split each side of town. Local geologist said its the mineral composition of the area, which may or may not have some truth.

By The looks of it, there is no end in sight to this [censored], at least right up to next Friday.

So far it has rained nearly every day in April.

Weird weather today. Overcast a lot of the time. Very windy/blustery this morning, type of winds around in whirlwind season, but thankfully vegetation is still green enough not to happen. It's had a coolness that makes you think it's going to rain or drizzle but of course nothing actually happens.

Warmer than average winter for that period - lets see how that pans out, they said something like that last year, was colder and drier as it turned out

Hopefully they don't get it wrong twice or my motorbike will be holed up more than I would like

I think daytimes were warmer Wandjina but nights were cooler due to the clear skies which probably gave the feeling it was colder. I believe winter, June-August, was over 1c above the average in Cairns. Only 2 months were below average for CAP in 2018 which were Feb and March.

By far my wettest April in Mareeba with 52.4mm recorded. Previous high was 19.4mm.
Daytime max is 1c below my average and 0.5c below my coldest April.
Minimum is 1.3c above average and 1c above my previous warmest April.

EDIT: Wet season total, Dec-April, was 1248.6mm. Previous best was 1016mm.

Staying very damp

approx. 15mm overnight and regular light showers. I believed from the beginning april would be a damp month, which it proved to be. For May, it should be drying out - but I saw on a model map last night a 997mb low out in the Coral sea (NE) for about May 15th - crazy and unlikely …...

Stuff the rain. We need nice sunny weather. We've had enough rain to do us for many a month.
Tinaroo is at 101.19% and Copperlode at 101%, so all is good for quite a while.

Wow, you beat me then C@28 and that puts you 250mm above the chillagoe average. Best wet season since 2011? You have got to be happy with that!

I'm hopeless at adding rain measurements, manually.

The four months January to end April looks like about 682mm.
Add in the unusual rainfall for December 146mm and we get 828mm.
So the figure quoted above would've been for the whole wet season, not this year only.

It hasn't been wet up your way mate...?.showers and drizzle most of the day and night again down here..

No gumboots here..too sweaty and they would just get rain inside and all that mixed with foot fungus wouldn't be pretty...

Footwear here is strictly croc's until they get too slippery with mud and rain and then its bare feet...boots only used for the occasional chainsaw use...

Yeah that's just nuts simmo...they are just so random and so destructive...

My sister in law's place in the Carolina's in the USA was smashed a couple of weeks ago by one...it missed her house but destroyed her barn and levelled a portion of forest on one side of her property....she is having a tough time as the insurance company is trying to avoid paying.....how strange to have total devastation of forest and structures but less than 100m away the house survives intact..???


and what a beautiful day it was here..hopefully it might start to dry out a bit...

Saw this earlier Simmo, a perfect example of the positive and negative electrical forces that govern our atmosphere.

Looks like awesome weather for the week ahead.
Cold mornings will set in here though. Probably got down to about 13/14c this morning. Should see single figures this week. Later than usual.

It was 18 here at 3.00am. Slept thru dawn...

Never thought I'd ever say this, but I'm looking forward to a cool Dry. It would be nice to have some cold daytimes like we did in 2011, for a little while.

We got down to 15c (6 A.M) last night Coldy. Got a camping trip planned for the end of the month and want the water temps to stay high till then.
Will have fun in any event but it would be nice if the Barra were still on the bite. smile

Holy crap..

Winter has certainly hit with a vengeance down here.....Innisfail aerodrome was down to 14.2c last night...not sure what it was here but I needed a doona and a blanket to keep warm...….almost 5c below average.....

It has only just reached 20c at 8am...and at least the ground here is starting to drying out..


How far north are you headed for your camping trip Marakai…?

Minimum of 12.4c yesterday and 12.8c today. Not as cold as I thought it would get. We have had pretty heavy fog so maybe that kept the warmth in.

Still only 15.5c here Scott.

Will be watching this possible TL/TC in the CS with interest. Would be awesome to get 50mm from it though unlikely.
CMC latest run looks great for us getting a drop.

Chillagoe 15.8 degrees at 10 to 7 this morning. Probably the coolest we've had.

Currently 29.6 at 9.35am, and 40% humidity.

Bit more rain would be nice, if only to settle the dust. Getting pretty brown here again.

Surprised there isn’t any chat about the cyclone!
I’m looking forward to the rain smile

You're in the old thread, my dear. That's why it's a tad quiet.
