Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

So envious of you Daintree guys.. Tully sugar mill has recorded 57.8 mm this year so far.. Took the dogs down the swimming hole for a swim the other day and the wwoofer wouldn't even go in once the dogs stirred up the silt and leaves.....said it was too dirty... Say him intently studying the achtung...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Very nice 28..hopefully settled the dust for while and greens thing up for you...What did you end up with marakai…? It must be looking positively lush around the Daintree at the moment...even Cooktown scored well yesterday...over 100 mm's in places apparently.. Hours of thunder in the west yesterday...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

I cant remember when I last saw a mozzie, Dormant...not so green down here yet.. But all the forecasts are firming up for widespread monsoonal activity this week and beyond...looking good for the whole top end and east coast...just hope it does in fact materialise..the frogs have sure been going off...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Certainly has been comfortable weather leading up to Xmas....we have just been getting dribs and drabs of a few mm's here and there but relatively mild overcast weather with a good dose of humidity... Looks like some nice weather for Xmas and then a few showers and storms later in the week...looking...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Yeah that puts things in perspective Hickory and bunyip...…although down here we have not had any measurable rain yet.... We know that within the next few weeks we are assured of torrential rain but much of the rest of the country is frying with no relief at all in sight... My families farm in NW NS...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Some nice storms firing up out the back right now...it would be nice to get a bit more although I can feel the season has finally changed and we should see an end to the dry weather on the coast and tablelands

Such a relief...the humidity has been insane the last few days though..

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Waiting, waiting.... Blustery and overcast here....will we start seeing the first showers this evening...? Wonder if it will reach inland areas or be confined to the coast..? Bunyip is that water for stock or domestic....? our creek is looking decidedly feral at the moment also with areas of green s...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Guess that shows how easily a bushfire can start from a lightening strike, YS..

Forecasts are showing that the coral see moisture might well bring some rain this week...fingers crossed..

Chilligoe must be getting a bit dry and dusty ATM, 28..?...no threat from bushfires out that way..?

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Wow we actually had some showers over the last 12 hours....probably just a few mm's though and when I weeded in my Taro patch this morning the soil was still dry...

Looks like being a hell week with 34-35c predicted early on....not going to be much greenery left around after this..

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

I'd be happy with 3 mm today ..it feels like rain but not much showing on the radar.. Someone said they felt some raindrops 50 m from my shack the other day....didn't hear anything on the roof so maybe it was just your bat flying over the top of them, Dormant..! Its just nuts whats going on here at ...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Horrendously dry at Bilyana, November average is 183mm and we've had 1mm. If this keeps up it will far and away be the driest November on record, the next driest was 37mm in 2016. Yep was down that way a week or so back and it sure does look terrible....just ripe for bushfires really....they were b...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Not looking good at all...I think Dormant might be on the money....greater than 80% chance of less than average rainfall for the rest of the year... But at least we don't have bushfires to contend with... I just hope we see some decent action during January... [urlhttp://www.bom.gov.au/climate/outlo...
