Update on things here weather wise.

March 2nd, 2012 at 09:37 am

NSW and Victoria are now flooding; a few weeks ago the water coming from Queensland is now flooding outback NSW down the Darling River. Itís rain again in central NSW and Victoria with low ridge coming from NT all the way to Tasmania. This toft is slow moving and heavy rains so that itís now flooding areas closer to the great divide range this water will end up in the Murray River system in which the Darling River will flow into a few weeks. 75% of outback NSW is under water, area the size of France and now the main dam for Sydney flood gates were opened for the first time yesterday in 14 years.

Itís this weather pattern that causes flooding on wide scale here. So if you donít believe in climate change and our weather patterns are changing then revisit the idea as we have had 10 years of drought then 3 years where this weather pattern end in flooding on a grand scale. As Australia runs downhill from north to south all water will end up in the southern ocean that doesnít get used all the way. Some areas need to have free flowing rivers which the Darling River head waters are part of that system.

As for Victoria there is mainly flooding around the Murray River areas again with more rain flood water to come from the flood in NSW and another 100 mm is forecast this weekend.

This system will move into our area over the next week as its slowing moving east to the coast.

    Oh, no! Again! (Meanwhile, here I am not at all comfortable with the number of tornadoes we're having.)

    Some of the towns have been flooded 7 times in last 18 months. worse flooding in 125 years in some areas.
