This map indicates we will be on the wetter southern side of the low/trough. At least we have a track for the moment.

I'll be happy if it's just damp. I struggle with the lack of humidity. Only 23% today. 😝

Everything has just about dried out now. Ground is not squishy to walk on, and now, without that 'marshland' smell.

Sure hope the are wrong with the rain, which would turn things all soggy again.

BoM have not lowered the forecast rainfall for MAP yet since Saturday morning which seems strange.
My location on Meteye is still Tues 4-15mm, Wed 30-70mm and Thurs 4-15mm. Do not see us getting that. Very happy if we do.

0.4mm in my crystal clear inner tube this morning.

Ol' mate BoM on ABC still thinks a chance of decent rainfall from tonight.

Apparently more BoM aviation staff are being axed from Cairns to be centralized in Brisbane. Ridiculous.

Well this has been very disappointing. Only rain was a light shower yesterday arvo.
Very windy last night with gusts probably around the 60km mark.
Hopefully we get something today

Very rough and Gusty here for a few hours early this morning . Supprised to see Rain Guage still upright with 62mm in it. Radar looks like Cooktown is in for a bit of a drink.

3.8mm and fairly windy last night.Looks like the crown of a fairly decent tree came down in the yard across the road last night, probably had a few white ants or something else.

Last night -blew me into next month, there is talk of up to 80mm, I think I am beginning to see how that is going to materialise - from 256 radar, a real SW drift to the rain is in play

37mm here last night and 9mm the night before...

Surprising to see Cairns get so little..

Tully and the mountains and gorge behind had upwards of 60mm last night..

That should make it interesting for the White water rafting championships..not so much the water level in the river but trying to get teams from the road down the trail into the river and over all the slippery rocks...but then again they might enjoy the extra challenge..

Willis Is and Mornington Is 256km radars showing SFA. Weipa radar is down.
Lockhardt River should have got heaps, but also SFA.

Sat pic suggests the low just about running over the top of Weipa as well. Winds picked up here again for the evening.

It was pretty blowy all day out here. Warm morning 22 degrees at 6am, but a generally coolish kind of day.
