Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Amazing.

BoM say CNS radar would be back up and running at 05:00h on the 19th,- and lo & behold,- it is back up and running.
Miracles do happen. 🤓

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

.......... However, there is a warning re Severe Thunderstorm for the North Queensland Coast and guess what, the radar is out. Willis Is and TSV 512km radar not showing much at the moment. A bit around Tully area. That could change fairly quickly though. I might have a look in another hour. Fingers...

Is Jake even in the building? All forums have rivergirl as mod.
The deletions on/at 07 Feb 2020, 09:10 were under his handle.

A pimply faced kid on a power trip, methinks.

Everywhere from CNS to Rocky was quite green, but noticeably a lot drier south of Rocky to about the Sunny coast.

I see the daintree village alert has 82mm since 09:00. and Bairds Alert has 88mm.

Our rain didn't start 'til after 03:00. -- 62mm at the moment, but just started coming down heavy again.
Not sure there'll be much more by 09:00.

And 223.6 mm for Holloways.

Tried to go to sleep about 04:00,- but too noisy to sleep.
Not a big problem for us old retiree's. Just need a coffee and a long nanna nap. ;)

Bursts of proper heavy rain overnight :D :D 120mm overnight and still raining :D :D
Crazy rain at the moment.

8 mm at 22:00 hrs, and just checked the nylex, and I'm up to 147 mm.
Front and back yard are flooded up to my ankles. Love to see it all the same.

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

I am really peesed off that I'm away for all that wonderful rain. 😭😭 Which rain gauge did you leave out before you set off to the south,- the Nylex, or the little toy gauge ?? I've been watching that Flatrock Alert, (about 40 km to your east),- and there has been some reasonable falls there. Surely...

Serious question, what do you do when the shops run out of toilet paper and the Toilet wont flush any more ?
Arm yourself with large leaves and a square-mouth shovel and walk out into the nearest paddock. :P
(Don't use leaves off of a stinking tree.)

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

85mm overnight, and a brief loss of power :D :D Now that laid the dust ! 91.2mm for Holloways. Don't think I'll get much more in the next hour 'til 09:00h. I'd just plated up dinner when the power went out, so grabbed the hurricane lamp,- not quite a candle light dinner, but it did the trick. Sure ...

The rest of Jan. could be quite wet. NW Qld and the Gulf getting good rain. Flush them prawns out into the gulf waters. :P

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Today we got our first decent fall of the year, well over 50mm so far and still falling, nothing torrential at all but just good heavy falls and it looks like more to come as well over night. This will get the grass growing for sure. Good soaking rain. That hand feeding stock isn't cheap, I'd imagi...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Quite pleasing to see a good assortment of storm cells floating around the area to start the day.
Hoping a few cross overhead of Holloways. ;)
