Cyclone brewing

Recommended Posts

The first cyclone of the year is forming off the Gulf of Capentaria. I am presuming this is what will be causing the focused 600ml of rain in Townsville next week. 


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Hopefully, a very short lived one, judging  by the BOM map. Mt Isa might get a bit of rain, too.

Cheers, Bobj.

Well my youngest is just passing through Mackay on her way to a few days in Airlie Beach with  her boyfriend and some friends and i am pooping myself at the distance she is driving so really hope she misses the storms when camping (and driving). They stayed in Rocky last night after setting off yesterday morning and i will stress more if a cyclone hits ,so maybe best if i go and bury my head in the sand for a few days... Why oh why do kids grow up so fast now a days?

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

I think Airlie will be fine, if she was heading to Cairns I’d stress, I saw the Bruce was already cut off and flooding in Cairns, Ingham etc. It looks like it will be heading to Cardwell. Poor Cardwell seems to have a magnet that pulls all the cyclones towards it.

The ‘low’ that was the cyclone, has been hovering over the Whitsunday, Mackay region all week and delivered a total of 7 inches of rain in our local area. Proserpine received 6 inches for the 24 hours.yesterday alone.
