Paul,

Most of the low pressure systems from the north that have hit Brisbane, all had tropical low characteristics, eventhough Brisbane is located in the Sub tropics, I disagree with your comment.

I don't know about the soaking rain here but its enough to green the grass. I think the coral sea is coming back to life after several years of hybernation fingers crossed for some good activity to effect us from this area in the coming seasons. :cheers:

The Cairns Post, or as we like to call it the "Com Post" has hit disaster mode already for the up and coming season. The Bureau brings out their cyclone forcast on Monday, wait and see.

Hi Storm, Pacman and Ang - I see we are all crawling out of hibernation. Was that a pitter patter of rain on the tin roof?
Oh a glorious 8mm sofar. Let this be the start of a good season.

HI Crystal and Ang, Yes it feels good atm with the high humidity and dew point on the rise we had 10mm so far for today it feels like the wet already. I can't wait to see the forecast in the paper on monday. Even though they are usually always wrong it is still exciting though.

Certainly feels like a wet season day . DP's are 22c, RH is 82% and very overcast and grey. 7mm overnight so hopefully the grass will green up a bit.
Welcome to the forum Kiwi, you have come up to Cairns at the right time. Wet season's are the best. smile

Looks like some solid cloud build up in the coral sea. Have not seen anything like that since Jan Feb this year, when the cyclone formed and moved away from us. Fingers crossed for the tropics, because if you guys get a good season usually flows on to us down here.

forecast charts continue to show an increase in activity in the far NE coral sea as next week progreses. GASP even forecasts a weak disturbance to move west towards far north cape york. talking long term though.

Yeah, could get interesting Mick. I am on Thursday Island from this Monday till Friday, so will be interested to see how this disturbance pans out. I will be taking the digicam so hopefully will try and post some pics while I am at the tip of Australia. The internet link is terrible, so that is the only thing that will stop me. Last time I tried I only managed a 9.6K connection.

Have just finished work and walked out of the air conditioning to be blanketed in the thick air outside. Lovely and humid.
Cairns post sure have done a big spread on a potential devastating cyclone season for us they are pushing the 30 yr cycle theory and we are due for a big one this season or next! Who knows would be lovely to have.
Lucky u seaweed i love that part of the world, i grew up in Bamaga. Used to swim in the jardine river and the lagoons until they fished out a 5m croc.<<<

G'day all.... Hendo stretches and yawns, as he also staggers out of hibernation. Well actually 'near washed out of it. We've had some 77 points in about 36 hours, just right out of the blue. I hope you guys got some reasonable falls, and if not may they come soon.

Kiwi welcome to FNQ, and I hope the "wet" fulfils your expectations.

Here's to a brilliant Wet for all of us! :cheers:

Geez, first Crystal, now Hendo, who else is left that we have to wake up.? Pacman, sounds like I should keep away from Frangipani beach if there are 5 metre crocs hanging about. I've now been to TI 10 times and am getting to know the place very well. Incredible place but my colleagues reckon it is getting like a suburb of Cairns. I hope through this thread that the lurkers in other parts of Australia will appreciate an area with the greatest rainfall anywhere in our nation, here's to a great wet season as well. :cheers:
