I got very lucky the other day. 32ml from a storm that cruised over us. Topped up the tanks a bit.

Perth has had more rain this year than Yeppoon , that's something you don't see often.

Last year felt like the first year in a while we had more storms .. this year it just seems too dry, though we did get a rumble the other day with that showery event.

The last six years or more the weather has been quite erattic Vinnie.

I would say we are in a long term dryer period at the moment. Long term as in many many years long.

Or for all we know we could be returning to normal years from a long term wet period. There are no long term records going back thousands or years.

31 deg in Rocky 25 in Yeppoon but most of the day around 22-23deg.

Livio's outlook doesn't seem so pessimistic compared to the BOM outlook:

Some heavy falls last night. Very very isolated though. 75mm+ at byfield.

A narrow heavy shower at Gavial/Gracemere road today at the highway roadworks.

In saying that, I am slightly concerned about the forecast maps, they seem to be following a similar pattern to last year.

During the past week, or so, we have scored 2 good showers. One with 32ml then the other night woke to the sound of rain. Scored another 4ml out of that.

The grass is looking greener though I am sure it won't last long but better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick.

Starting to think a drought is nearly upon us in this part of the world as well.

I would have hoped to have seen storms in the south east corner by now.

We can not expect too much yet as it is still September, but I can remember three years in a row we never got a break until January.

From memory, didn't last year we see more storms around October and November and it was wetter ?

Rocky has only had 300mm , instead of 600 year to date.

Yes, last year spring was what I would consider more normal, then summer was a bit of a flop.

Two previous years, spring was a failure but there were large deluges in summer.

An older person thought in his opinion the seasons have lost a bit of consistency. Long dry spells and short deluges is the order of the day at the moment.
