(AUSTRALIA) LATEST: After a period of humid days and muggy nights, Cairns can expect a bit of drenching, and even flash flooding in some areas of the region #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.14: Some patchy showers could appear as soon as this afternoon, while a broad weather system is set to move across the Far North tomorrow.

#AceWeatherDesk says according to TropicNow News Report: Cairnsโ€™ steamy weather to make way for thunderstorms, possible flash flooding

Helen Reid12 Nov 2021, 10:30

Itโ€™s a welcome relief after several nights this week topped 80 per cent humidity levels.

In the early hours of Thursday morning, the humidity peaked at 95 per cent.

Helen Reid of the Bureau of Meteorology toldย Tropic Nowย most of the wet weather is likely to come tomorrow, though the seven-day forecast ahead shows a reasonable chance of intermittent showers.

โ€œToday weโ€™re expecting the skies to be a little bit cloudy, with showers and thunderstorms to creep in right throughout the region later today,โ€ she said.

โ€œThereโ€™ll be some more serious thunderstorm activity towards Innisfail.

โ€œIn Cairns thereโ€™s likely to be a few millimetres this afternoon, from 5 to 10 millimetres.

โ€œTomorrowโ€™s a little bit more concerning, with one or two heavy showers.

โ€œItโ€™s hard to predict rainfall totals in any thunderstorm system but we could see 10 to 20 millimetres in Cairns, and 20 to 30 millimetres in isolated areas.

โ€œTomorrowโ€™s system is predicted to move in a north-easterly direction, meaning areas around Atherton and Mareeba are most likely to be impacted.โ€

Significant rain is also expected in Port Douglas, Cairns and Innisfail.  

โ€œOn Sunday thereโ€™ll be a few showers lurking around but back down to about 5 millimetres,โ€ Ms Reid said. ย 

โ€œOne or two thunderstorms are possible on Monday and Tuesday, before it clears a bit more on Wednesday and Thursday.โ€

(AUSTRALIA) BOM REPORT: Today’s focus is on northern New South Wales and southern Queensland, with heavy rain expected to result in flash and riverine flooding, while erratic thunderstorms are expected to be in the mix #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.11: November rain records have already been smashed through Australia’s west and centre โ€” now the focus is moving east…..……This is going to be the most widespread and heavy rainfall event we’ve seen so far heading into summer,” according to Bureau of Meteorology senior meteorologist Jonathan How.

#AceWeatherDesk says according to BOM Report: Forecasts heavy rain, flooding as more wet weather descends upon eastern Australia: Keep up with your local warnings via ABC Emergency and heed the advice of the emergency services……

And with it will come a plunge in temperatures, with Canberra expecting a maximum temperature of just 12C on the weekend. 

Warnings have been issued for severe thunderstorms that are likely to produce damaging winds and heavy rainfall.  

A 93kph wind gust was recorded at Roma this afternoon and 46 millimetres of rain fell in just 30 minutes at Isaac River Bridge near Moranbah, inland of Mackay.

Heavy rain is also expected in South Australia, where a low pressure system is expected to deepen. 

Mr How is paying particular attention to this low, which is expected to be the focus of the rain, wind and storms over the next few days. 

The low is expected to move through South Australia and western New South Wales tomorrow before diving down towards the ACT, eastern Victoria and south-east New South Wales late Thursday and into Friday.  

“We are expecting the heaviest rain and winds to be quite tightly bounded to that low pressure system,” Mr How said. 

“It’s going to be quite critical where this system moves.” 

Easterly winds from this system could spell trouble for Victoria, where gusts from this uncommon direction have caused havoc in the past

It’s also going to be freezing 

Conditions are expected to ease over Queensland and northern NSW on Friday and into Saturday, but the cold wet conditions are expected to linger down south over the weekend. 

“We’re seeing maximum temperatures all through central and eastern Australia over the next few days between six to 16 degrees below average for this time of year,” Mr How said. 

He predicts some places could see their coolest November days on record, particularly around South Australia.

Canberra is expecting a maximum temperature of just 12C on Saturday and Sunday; Melbourne is only forecast to reach 15C over the weekend. 

“It’s hard to believe that we are just two to three weeks away from summer,” Mr How said. 

It has been snowing in Tasmania, where more falls are expected down to 500 metres over the weekend, when Victoria can also see snow down to 900 metres as another cold front comes through.

The flooding has started

More than 340mm hit the gauge at Samuel Hill, just north of Rockhampton, in the 24 hours to 9am today, with widespread falls in the region above 50mm. 

The southern Northern Territory has also seen phenomenal rain; Alice Springs recorded 100.2mm to 9am and the usually dry Todd River is a raging brown torrent. 

“We haven’t seen rainfall that high since January 2001. It’s a 20-year kind of number for Alice Springs,” Mr How said.

Less than a fortnight in, and the region has already broken its November rainfall record.

Earlier today a man was rescued from the Todd River after clinging to a tree for six-and-a-half hours after his car was swept off a causeway.

Over in the west, it has also been wet with many long-standing November rainfall records falling.

Coorow picked up a November record with 50mm, while Perth metro recorded up to 40mm in a storm yesterday.

Heed those warnings 

Few parts of the country will avoid some sort of rain over the coming days and warnings will be coming in thick and fast. 

As always, be careful around flood waters.

(AUSTRALIA) Weather Report: More than 4,000 properties at Ipswich, Toowoomba and Mango Hill lost power Monday when a band of storms swept across south-east Queensland #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.17: Nearby resident Leanne Roberts said it sounded like the lightning “was in the house”.โ€ It was probably the loudest crack that I’ve heard in the storms in this area,” she said.

#AceWeatherDesk QUEENSLAND: Homes in Ipswich, Toowoomba, Mango Hill lose power as storms hit south-east: Energex spokesperson Justin Coomber said a power pole was struck by lightning at High Street in Brassall, causing outages to more than 1,300 homes and businesses.

“Because the storms cleared quickly, our emergency repair crews have been able to get on the scene fast,” Mr Coomber said.

Teams were also working in the Toowoomba region, where more than 800 properties experienced outages.

Meteorologist Rosa Hoff said the storms, which extended from Caboolture to the border, were fast moving.

“They were not severe storms, and did not produce heavy rain or strong wind,” Ms Hoff said.

“It’s not unusual to see a couple of cold weather storms at this time of year, but they are more common in the southern states.”

The State Emergency Service has not received any calls for storm assistance.

More storms are possible from this afternoon through to this evening, between Caboolture and Gladstone, and Sarina and Townsville.

The Bureau of Meteorology recorded 12 millimetres of rain at Upper Caboolture, Deception Bay and Camp Hill this morning.

Further inland, 28mm of rain fell at the Highfields and between 15 and 20mm fell between Oakey and Toowoomba.
