sorry PaulM, if you are using Firefox, then you can zoom into a clear image of that map and see the circulation is NE of the mouth of the South Johnstone....

only a few hundred kilometres North of Townsville, and no where near the hollow that appears on teh 128K Townsville AP radar

Fair enough. Perhaps I need to rally the Top Enders for a "whinge-a-thon" and maybe we can stir up enough atmopsheric disturbance of our own!

Though I still reckon that low of yours was caused by the vorticity created by your pole-dancing wink

Boms latest outlook says the low will move out to the nth east as it develops and the heavy rain will ease. So they have it moving away from the coast and developing. Could be an interesting day tomorrow. No fishing tomorrow.

Sorry, Steve - that chart is just a repesentation of what digital atmosphere thinks is happening. It doesn't necessarily reflect the actual conditions. And besides that, you'll probably find that this low is slanted towards the SE / S so that there is an area of vorticity prob located in the mid levels located to the NE off Townsville, while the surface area of voriticity is locasted further northwards.

We had a similar issue with our Low. Surface wise, it was just to the N/NW of Darwin; however the main area of vorticity was located at 850hpa off in the timor sea some 300km's or so from Darwin.

EDIT: yep it's what I thought. MLAPS shows a vorticity to the NE of Townsville at 850hpa. So that's also why this low hasn't really developed much further yet because it hasn't aligned its areas of vorticity - surface is 200km's north.

OK, cheers PaulM, I'm a newbie to FNQ so I'm learning all the time smile

Thanks for the heads up...

That hollow may be partial caused by obstruction from Magnetic Island. It has an altitude of 500 mtrs. Just a thought.

Wouldn't the radar beam already be over Magnetic Island seeing as it's coming from Mt Stuart?

I personally think its just a gap between rainbands. You can sorta see it developing on the sat image. This band seems to be moving south as well, still pouring here at home!!

Yeah, the hollow seems to be closing up now. Must have just been a gap in rainbands.

This reminds me a bit of Jan 98, not quite as intense however.

low is too hard to define.
rain north of tville is moving south, also rainbands moving east to west. tville is just in a good spot right now.

Bluwater is about to break the double ton!! I wonder how many other suburbs may do the same by 9am tomorrow?

Mt Stuart's elevation (584m) makes it a fairly good site for Townsville's main weather watch radar. It does however suffer some obstruction to it's view due to the higher terrain around the region. Mt Elliott (1234m) lies approximately 20km to the SE and considerably restricts the radar's ability to see light to moderate precipitation echoes in that direction. Magnetic Island (507m) 20km to the north has a small effect but generally precipitation from the north comes from high cloud and the island effect is not noticed.

Anyway some very welcome precipitation for the NE facing Townsville coast! 130.4mm, that is impressive in anyone's books! Well done Townsville. I bet yous are loving all this rain even more so in T'ville because Cairns is hardly getting any laugh

You would think so. It's just strange that with all that rain it has prevailed in the same spot. A bit of a mystery.

144 so far for the AP since 9am

and in the race, Upper Major has o'ertaken Major Creek as the second place runner at 159mm... this is still 36mm behind Bluewater, which is wet as!

Bluewater at 195 is a shoe in for the first to 200 smile

alot of the local streams around tville are at minor flood level. stuart creeks south of tville is always a trouble spot for blocking the bruce highway southwards.

I wouldn't be suprised Mick! Somethings gotta give.

Well I'm off to bed, to sleep to the sound of nice steady rain and gusty winds! The radar looks to have weakened a little, but I suspect things will pick up again in the early hours of the morning. Usually does!! Night All!!
:cheers:
