Heavy rain causes damage in SE QLD, NE NSW

Heavy rain causes damage in SE QLD, NE NSW

Areas of rain, including some torrential rainbands and widespread thunderstorms, moved eastwards across SE QLD and NE NSW late yesterday and today. A strong infeed of moist air from the Coral Sea combined with a surface trough and upper low to produce the rain and storms. The heaviest rainbands formed along lines of locally converging winds, the most notable crossing Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Tweed Valley in the early daylight hours of this morning. Tweed Heads with a 24 hour total of 130.6mm to 9am, headed a long list of heavy falls (see wettest below).

Showers and storms formed over the Darling Downs late yesterday afternoon, the showers moving east but the storms steered NE by upper winds from the west to the north of Toowoomba. One cell moved NE from Tara, 75km SSE of Miles, leaving a broad swathe of deep hail and causing water damage in one home. Biloela experienced golfball-sized hail, and wind strong enough to lift roofs from some houses and blow down power lines causing electricity disruptions. ABC Capricornia Radio told the story of one lady stuck in her car with young children while it was lifted in the wind as hail stones smashed the windows. By early evening, a broad area of rain extended from Bundaberg to Coffs Harbour and inland across the ranges. Thunderstorms died out and the rain moved offshore by about 3am today, but lingered around the Gold Coast and Tweed Valley. Hervey Bay SE of Bundaberg recorded 74mm between midnight and 3am.

A strongly marked convergence line formed south of Toowoomba before 5am then moved ENE, giving the heaviest downpours of the day around Brisbane, the Gold Coast and south to about Lismore before it moved offshore around 9am. Coolangatta Airport recorded 44mm between midnight and 6am, then a further 51mm to 9am for an October record 117.0mm in the 24 hours to 9am. New October one-day rainfall records, albeit for stations with short records, were also set at Logan City (47.0mm) and Ballina Airport (78.0mm), though the 70.0mm at Tabulam (Muirne), 60km W of Casino, set a more respectable record with 34 years of observations. At Ballina, several homes and business were reported flooded. (See downpours for details of torrential rain.) The Gold Coast rain was said to be the heaviest one-day fall in 20 years, and totals of around 200mm for the day in the catchments of the Hinze and Little Nerang Dams improved the city's water supplies to 63% of capacity while the rain has reduced consumption by one-third.

The rain caused damage in the Gold Coast hinterland where a 30m gum tree crashed onto a Mudgeeraba hotel roof and four cars. More than a dozen homes reported water damage from Broadbeach Waters to Palm Beach. Rainfall totals between 20 and 80mm in the Wide Bay-Burnett region were welcomed by cane growers as rain was badly needed for next year's crop after one of the driest periods since April on record.

During the afternoon, storms redeveloped from the Darling Downs north to the Central Highands and moved east, giving heavy rain from the Sunshine Coast north to Bundaberg. Thousands of residents of Bundaberg, Childers and Gin Gin lost power during the night when lightning struck powerlines, while a storm bearing copious hail hit Eidsvold, 130km SW of Bundaberg, flooding a hotel.
