Weather Watch

Time for a seasonal climate update! After a failed wet season and drought further in the hinterland recent months on the coast haven't exactly brought lovely weather for the tourists! The graph is again variation from the monthly average with twelve month rolling rainfall average retaining a shortfall of almost 100mm/month.

 
While recent months have been around average these are the lower rainfall months so wont make up the shortfall. ENSO is currently towards the La Nina end of the neutral band with stable model forecasts.

Regular showery rain has maintained dam levels but Tinaroo remains below levels of recent years.



Meanwhile out west: Creeks that should be running are completely dry in Far North Queensland
