Jeez the lightning was that close you could hear and smell it before you saw the flashes.....and some of the loudest thunder !!
Nope....three fifths of five eights of f*ck all.....Do you get much hail up your way?
Better clear up by the 26th Feb when I hit town.J F C !!..... might get a bit wet around Darwin if this comes off in the first week of February ! !. A 1000mm in a week ?
I'll have to see it to believe it. ( but has happened before in Feb 2011, I recorded 1100mm in a week at the time of Cyclone Carlos. )
Its the same beach out at Lee Point, its a designated 'dogs off leads' beach, so its like a smorgasbord for crocs.Thought I heard on the news today that there was a croc off Leanyer Beach as well.
Anyway, what happened to the "50-70mm of rain forecast & likely storm" for today? I guess the vagaries of trying to forecast rainfall when you have a wandering low about the place.
I guess that's the best chances gone as there doesn't seem to be much coming during the remainder of my stay. Ah well, c'est la vie....
Been here three days, kind of enjoying the hot and humid so far. The non A/C Cessna 210 ride out to Kakadu today was a bit challenging but bearable.Gotta love the old 'monsoonal break' periods in Darwin.... she's pretty ordinary outdoors along the Top End coasts atm !
