NSW, QLD: Rain continues on coast, spreads inland

Rain, heavy in places, continued along the east coast south of Cairns today, while moderate falls overnight in southern inland QLD spread south into northern NSW during the day. Rain over this huge area is being generated by moist northeasterlies feeding into a surface trough lying through central QLD and NSW, over which an upper low and colder air are providing uplift by causing instability and convergence.

Heaviest falls to 9am were on the QLD Gold Coast and the NSW North Coast. Miami on the Gold Coast recorded 75.6mm, while in NSW Mullumbimby registered 54.0 and Murwillumbah 53.0mm. The QLD Darling Downs and Maranoa also received good falls, with a broad band from Mitchell to Goondiwindi recording between 25 and 50mm. Top falls were 48.2 at Mt Driven 50km E of St George and 45.0 at The Deep Crossing, 90km WSW of Dalby. On the Central Coast, significant winter rain fell in the Pioneer Valley around Mackay, Dalrymple Heights notching up 40.0mm and East Mackay 26.0. This rain area spread inland as far as the Burdekin Dam which received 31.0mm.

During the day, coastal rain continued, intensifying on the NSW North Coast late afternoon. Evans Head received 65mm between midday and midnight, Ballina Airport 52mm 3pm to midnight and Cape Byron 43mm 3pm to 9pm. The inland rain area moved south into the NSW Upper Darling and North West Plains, Bourke receiving 38mm between noon and 6pm.

QLD: Storm dumps heavy hail in SW QLD

A thunderstorm, one of many active across southern QLD overnight, dumped around 5cm of "half pea-sized" hail on a small area of Nooyeah Downs, 25km W of Thargomindah. The 2km square area, completely covered by what looked like snow, was discovered this morning by the grazier on a flight over his property. When he subsequently walked into the area he found that heavy rain had washed hail into drifts 60 to 75cm deep in gullies. The precipitation from the storm was particularly isolated, with no daily reporting rainfall stations in Far SW QLD recording any rain in the 24 hours to 9am today.
