It's been a bit toasty in North Queensland.
The rains are here Marg.
Diff this time is it hasn’t rained for a year. Back then the 300+ was on the back of a wet few months.
Scored a sneaky 4ml at Umina which is a nice ground softener in preparation for the main event tomorrow.

Just drove into Sydney CBD from north western suburbs. Fark That was heavy rain. I could only drive at 40-50kmh maximum, with windscreen wipers struggling to cope. Lots of standing water and torrents of water flowing across the road. Diabolical conditions
Getting on a Sydney train on a fine day is still an astonishing feat!
o to 100, real quick.
On the ferry .... still some empty seats.
I am glad I moved a few things off the deck because the rain must have been horizontal. The bloody wind blew down a 30yr old Banksia, one of two in our native garden part of the garden so I guess a garden Reno is now in order. The birds love those trees The fallen tree mashed a couple of flowering jelly bush as well.

Spinning a treat overhead in Dubbo at present. SOme good storm last night but sun has been out. Wondering if the wrap around is going to get us again shortly. Trying to decide if i should go and do a few hours outside.
OK now its dumping rain in the northern gong
55ml so far at Umina since 4am. Rain has lightened up for now but the wind is picking up. Should get heavier again later once the rotation starts pushing in from the South East.
I installed a rain gauge earlier today.
Barangaroo T2 fire alarm evacuates a whole lot of suits out into the rain without their umbrellas.
Wettest November day in 34 years.
"That makes it the wettest November day since 1984 and also the wettest day since April 22, 2015. The intensity of that rainfall was phenomenal. 91mm fell in 90 minutes, that's basically the equivalent of a one in 100 year event."
