Hi all,Its been raining steady all day today and I am ready for a big day tomorrow. been pumping water out from under house all day lol. cheers Doug.GFS still has around 40mm falling on exposed coastal areas from brissy south down to about the boarder and tapering off as you go inland.
Also the southerly change is really going to fire up in the next 4-6 hours (most probably as a result of this low moving off the coast), and should be strong winds right along the Gold and Sunny coasts tonight and into tomorrow morning.Parts of SEQ will get their turn eventually - have you even looked at the models.I will be keeping an eye on the Logan River at Waterford (just down the road from us) is at 1.9m and falling - but yesterday it was rising, then falling, rising then falling again.Somehow missed this: MINOR FLOOD WARNING FOR THE WILSONS RIVER AT LISMORE Issued at 11:23 pm EDT on Friday 24 December 2010 Flood Warning Number: 1 Up to 112 millimetres of rain has fallen during the past 12 hours to 11 pm Friday night.However, the rain intensity has increased during the past 6 hours, with an average of 45 millimetres falling during this period.
Great post Jesse24, Nitso makes it very easy to understand whats happening, i kind of hope it doesnt happen we start work again on wed if that happens there is no way the farmers from SEQ will get their pigs to us.Check out warrego radar great heavy rain streaming in from NW tracking SE being squezzed nicely towards the SEQ rain bands.In three days (ended 9am 27th) the Queensland capital received 580mm, with even heavier falls over river catchments near the city (1,300mm in five days at Mt Glorious).Originally Posted By: Chris Stumer I wonder how would Kingaroy cope if the forecasted rain does come off.Absolutely torrential here - wife got back from bargain shopping at Westfield Helensvale - opened our westward facing garage and whooshka - water runneth through the garage to the front entry saturating everything - great bloody timing.booms of thunder with it.I also think the big floods in NE NSW in March was an unpleasant surprise as well, with very little warning.This has resulting in renewed river rises and local flash flooding in the Richmond and Wilsons Catchments.Looks like the sunny coast maybe in for a bit of a deluge though.Yard was mowed, but the amount of water lying around is remarkable.
