RWM is retired (The hint is in the R of RWM = Retired Weather Man) Stormy. grin

As far as rainage goes, 25mm til midnight - what a bust. Yes I know what happened when Melbourne got a HUUUUUUGE 25mm and the place flooded but up here it just runs off or becomes mould or maybe mouldy runoff. Anyway it isn't nearly enough to end the month on. Not happy Jan just about covers it.

So Hinezy - you would be riding shotgun on the next consignment of weather defeating radar juice then mate? wink

Night all - the silly stuff has started escaping again by teh looks of it.

Heavy rain woke me up ...darn it, missed taking the dogs out,only need 44.3mm before 9am to hit the 200mm for the 24hour period, it would then be the second 200mm falls we've received this month. Hope this lot makes it to the mainland for you guys/gals.

Joc are u sure you received that much? Both stations on the island haven't exceeded 85mm since 9am. Do you have a manual gauge to compliment the electronic one?

The SWW North of Townsville has been cancelled.

DAMN.


Its say may delvop further north of Ayr in the lastest SWW. So looks like u guys are going to miss out. Sorry guys where in for more of the wet stuff down here. Sorry to rub salt into ur wounds. U must be sick of hearing about our big wet.


BC, Ingham has been flooded and cut off from the north and south more times this season than i can remember in my 20years in this area. so how about you take a dose of your own salt.

some light rain areas again moving down from the north. still got a good 50mm to go to break our March record. hope it comes off.
one cant help but feel they we have been ripped off big time. two major rain events have failed for us this month (this one to date included), just imagine how big our monthly total 'could' have been!

I'm going on my La Crosse weather station (brand new) however I have got my Nylex collecting as well and will check when it stops raining.I've taken a screen shot of this mornings totals but have no idea how to post them.I know this area really well and the tidal creek in front of us is absolutely raging as is our waterfall behind us,this only happens when we get huge 24 hour rains only. I have a friend that collects in Nelly and her totals are always higher than the official Nelly collection point, where ever that is. I dare say this is the case in Townsville as well with localised collection points,some are way higher than others.

It's bucketing down now can't even see the Sea and my son in Townsville has just rung up and it's not raining there in Townsville .

I read somewhere earlier that Ingham had missed out on the wet. That may be the case this time, and I'm not going to complain. But we've had 5 major floods, the highway south been closed 8 times at a total of 14 days, north closed for a total of 12days(Ingham completly isolated for 10 days), and poor old Haifax cut of for a total of 19 days since 21 December.

Also noticed the GFS had last night put huge falls of 500mm+ for the coast and ranges Townsville - Ingham, and did so for a few runs, but this morning backed off completely to around 100mm.

Bugger all out here - haven't checked the gauge yet but looks like around the 5mm mark. Still holding out hope for some decent stuff before the end of the week....

NOAA Climate Prediction Centre forecast for Week 2 of the current forecast period (6-12 April) has a moderate confidence level for tropical cyclogenesis in the Coral Sea based on the propagation and likely strengthening of MJO signature in the region and a monsoon trough becoming active over northern Australia; and high confidence for likelihood of above average rainfall across northern Australia, including the Queensland tropics in the same period. This Wet/Cyclone Season still appears to have some potential to bring some good stuff our way.
