Christ, poor old Rockhampton, Emerald, etc. Too early to call how severe the weather event will be, but judging from moisture in the atmosphere we can expect more than alittle rain hey? GFS predicted the current system last week so Im not surprised. hmmm...

Interesting to note that Wivenhoe is now at 69.31m (remembering her full capacity is only 74m) and still rising. Somerset is being released into WIvenhoe which is contributing to this.

To give you an idea, the full capacity (not including flood mitigation) is 1,165,238 - she is currently at 1,432,791 - thats just under 270,000 L to come down the river yet.

Being at 123%, it is almost at the peak reached in October(126.2) - before this the highest reached was in 10 Feb 1999 when it reached 135.1%.

The river side of the dam is at 34.74 and rising also due to releases

Releases should continue until later this week or the weekend of 1 and 2 January 2011, with the aim of reducing the dam to full supply. Actual release levels may change depending on downstream flows or further inflows or rain.

Councils have been consulted and it is expected Twin Bridges, Savages Crossing, Colleges Crossing, Kholo and Burtons Bridges will continue to be inundated until at least the weekend.

It is not expected that Mt Crosby or Fernvale bridges will be affected at this time.

Toowoomba's dams as of 9am are sitting at a combined capacity of 59.9%. We are slowly getting there. Id imagine we might only get to ~62% over the next few days.

A hec of a lot better than it was in Feb, Adam. I think that's when they were down to a combined level of 8 or 11 percent then

Haven't seen the Logan River at Waterford get up to 6m before, the runoff seems to have completely damped out the tidal variation! It's keeping Slacks Creek at Loganlea up above minor flood level.

Well gotta reduce water usage here because the treatment plant was flooded and they only have 2 days supply. They say we can only shower and toilet and use water inside if its required, in flooded homes I guess! No washing clothes or anything else! Upto a week until it's repaired!

Yeah that's Slacks Creek going by the maps - it looks misleading though, Scrubby Creek, even though it appears larger, is apparently just a tributary... Maybe Slacks Creek was given its name at a time when its flow rate was greater? confused

Looks like no more big rains for a few days thank goodness...next thing I am watching is the ongoing variation in forecasting of an upper trough due to develop up the E coast in a week or so...models playing around with it just off in the Tasman right through to stretching up into coastal districts of far N Qld. Some model runs have even shown a cut off low across inland N Qld.

Right now none of the models are showing heavy rain across NENSW SELQD (other than EC a couple of days back) - but me thinks worth watching...subtle changes in the upper pattern...which are quite likely given the time frame...could pull some heavier falls onto the E coast. Chances are the heavier tropical flow is likely to stay way out in the Tasman, but given the SSTs right now even a decent onshore flow alone can give big falls. One thing it looks like the upper pattern will be doing is keeping any cyclonic development off the E coast in at least the short term.

I think Monday is looking not too bad for some storms to fire up. Keep an eye out.

The synoptic situation for next week is looking interesting with low pressure covering most of the country

Here is the latest chart for next thursday.


































I realise its just a chart and it will chop and change but still looking at it gets me excited. eek

I see that the BOM is predicting a Cat 3 TC off NW WA to develop about Mon 2/1/11. Any predictions how this will affect the east coast if it drags more moist air off the Coral Sea?

I think that it is perhaps a little to far away to drag any moisture off the coral sea...and if you look at this Werdna, i think that the high in the tasman wont allow to much moisture to be dragged across...http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/synoptic_col.shtml, hope that answers your question
