  1. Given the total lack of precipitation in California this winter, this is a godsend rather than something to worry about…….

  2. South East Queensland’s wet season has arrived with gusto – despite low rainfalls for October 2011 to mid January 2012 we now have had heavy rain (normal for Summer here but not quite so constant)and are looking forward to >90% chance rain as far forward as the Bureau predict.

    In 1974 we had similar conditions culminating in a very large downpour in the week up to the Australia Day weekend – Saturday 26 January 1974.

    That year Brisbane flooded more than in January 2011.

    I hope there is not a repeat this year but the forecasts do not look good. I hope they’re wrong.
