Thinking it will be ts wind wise. Due to friction would not think much over 100kmph ,but wont to be classified as such overland.
Delivering in rain in buckets already.
Geographically widespread 100mm+ total overnight, Lombadina community on the NW of the Dampier Peninsula already passed 140mm in the few hours from 0900-1200 today.
Looking at the semi stationery rain band & infeed over next 48 hours, think a few places will see over 500mm out of the system, even if the recording stations are few & far between. Cygnet Bay, just to the east of Lombadina already collected over 400mm out of the previous system earlier in month.
When is Queensland going to get a monsoon?
looks frontal now.
What was surprising is the 200mb showing it reached all the way up there weakish up there but surprising none the less.
EC has something out in the distance off the NW coast. Not supported by GFS yet.
