Apparently all our 10mm falls have added up this month to 99mm for the month. With a splurge of 23mm on the last day.

Forecast says a slight chance of a shower and you got a shower. Go figure.

No it said 10 percent chance and partly cloudy no shower icon.

So if it had a sunny icon and it pours all day ?

Ok so if it says 0 percent chance and we get rain what?

Not worth talking about on here again about this... I'll just use the radar instead of the forecasts.

Ok here goes again. Can someone explain?

It's the way it is worded these days. Surely it isn't just me not understanding it right. Why do you always respond when I say something about it (you've worked for the BOM?) I just find it confusing as heck the new forecasts the past few years.

It has a column with a huge paragraph of text for Capricornia Area then has an icon to the left with a rainfall percentage. for Yeppoon

Eg. Last night had partly cloudy icon and 10 percent chance of any rain for Yeppoon

So if you read it is looks like it shows a partly cloudy picture with 10 percent chance of anything falling from the sky.

I dunno I think it's these new forecasts, perhaps the average public cannot decipher them?

I liked the old system maybe when they didn't put a percentage chance of rainfall in it .

I think there was an article on here floating around saying how the percentage system is read these days eg 30 percent chance doesn't mean 70 percent chance of it not happening.

--

So how should I read today's one then it says Yeppoon shower or two 60 percent chance ... so a moderate chance of a shower ?

Then says Capricornia Area - which yeppoon is still in, 40 percent chance of showers near the coast ???Near zero chance of rain elsewhere.

Just because it didnít rain where you are vinnie doesnít mean it didnít rain somewhere else in Yeppoon.

Thanks Brad. We've been through this before but Vinnie seems to enjoy attacking the BoM at every opportunity. Maybe he can do the forecasts and we'll see how he goes. Looking to an icon to predict the rainfall in your area is simply absurd.

The forecast yesterday for his location quite clearly stated there was a small window of opportunity for a shower or two and he got a shower .

As you said , it is a big place and radar revealed heavy showers came ashore there last night. No weather forecast can predict exactly where they will fall or exactly how widespread they are.

..ad current radar shows showers moving on sure in that region.

Ok . I didn't even think of it like that. St Lawrence to Bundaberg is Capricornia or Gladstone? So 293km or about 470ish kmm in area?

Ok I used to live in a city in Australia (Perth) where it was only 50km north south the forecast area.

I apologise if I came across attacking the BOM.

You attack them all the time Vinnie. Forecats are just that, forecasts. They are not set in stone and not always right .

I guess so they can't be right all the time.

Not meaning to "attack".

Looks like some sort of shower activity/sprinkle of showers possibly on Thursday.

Coolish in the mornings but hasn't dropped below 20 deg yet.

April is a nice time of year, sun hasn't got that sting to it .

God life is depressing at the moment. Not enough rain. Society going down the hole rapidly. My peaceful life threatened by the pro developers. Come Easter I just about won't even be able to get out of my front gate for traffic. Council have thrown out all regulations regarding creating caravan parks so every second place is becoming one. Bloody roos eating any bit of green to the roots before it can even grow.

My moan for the week. frown I don't think having hurt my back a month back and still not being able to do anything is good for me.

On the upside my family still love me. smile

When the BOM says 10% of showers, it really means 90% you get absolutely nothing.

The mozzies and sandflies are bad at the moment, not much breeze at the moment. Supposed to pick up Thursday.

Seems like we either get flooding rains or not enough rain .

Now we go into a 7-8 month dry spell?

Well my week got better. Go to the shop this morning and come across some dipstick who wants to play brake games whilst doing between 50 and 70 in an 80 k zone. Go to overtake them and they can do 100. Hit the 60 zone and they are doing 30 so I overtook them as I didn't trust them to not suddenly hit the brake entirely.

Then at the shop as I am getting back in my car this woman from the car comes running at me shouting abuse so of course I quickly closed the door. She hits the door and is attempting to open it so I departed a bit quicker than I would normally. She is running after my car, hurling abuse, runs through the middle of the fuel pumps and attempts to hit the car again.

Then goes in the car crying and saying I tried to run her over??????

I have an appt with the policeman who will charge her.

My week has to get better. Surely.
