Hi Steve,

As you would be aware its best to check as close to your departure. Weather can change so quick. Its very hard to accurately predict ahead especially . This time of year should be good though.

This site offers many different options depending on your budget, from $0 to a minimal fee for the silver or gold options. " target="EOF" class="lbg">www.weatherzone.com.au/

or try www.bom.gov.au and have a play around

or there is weather on this site on the home page !

Cheers : ) TPM

Was talking to Mrs. JohnR & Moses who said that " target="EOF" class="lbg">www.eldersweather.com.au/ had a fairly good function where you could enter the postcode of where you were and it wouls spit out rainfall probabilities for the next month.
Night be worth a try,

Ferris,i don't know if this will work but we will try it.In the year 2525 if S.E.Q can survive that long without rain, in the January we will have high humidity, partly cloudy, partly sunshine for the first 12 day's. Then on the 13th day we will have thunderstorm's all over the Brisbane area with tornado like wind's, this will break the drought as it will rain for the next 15 day's continuosly day n night giving us about 1.75 mtrs of rain it should fill just about all dam's between Townsville to Coolangatta & out as far as Miles & Roma & the like's. Hope this help's for what you asked. Cheer's Bob.:)-

While you guys complain about the lack of rain....last year got stuck in Gibson due to the rain. Came home and my driveway had been washed away, this room flooded and less than 6k away houses almost toppled off their hill.
This year had 2 episodes of exactly the same sort of rain. Can't even cut grass here as its too wet now in winter, doesnt dry out at all.
Am re naming the Gold Coast to the Kold Coast.
No wonder whenever I come home after a trip I think gee this place is so green :))

Dry!!!

I'll show you dry!!! Come and visit my place.

As far as I know there two people who frequent this site who come close to my place for being dry. But they do have a river which is currently flowing through their town, at least they did not so long ago.

Our nearest river is 110km away and it is not flowing.

You want to see dry, come to Broken Hill. One of the guys at work bought a weekender at Sunset Strip on the shore of Lake Menindee so he could fish from his back door. Hope he can cast a long way.

There are moves to change the name of his street from Lakeside Drive to Dry Lake Road. I wonder why they want to include the word Lake.

Duncs,

How long ago was water last in Lake Menindee? I thought it was funny looking at a map with various sections of the "lake" set aside for skiing, canoeing, etc., then looking up and seeing a grassy, scrubby plain.

Stephen,

Lake Menindee dried up, I think in early 2003. The process was accelerated when water was pumped out of Lake Meninidee into the interconnecting channel to maintain the water in Copi Hollow. The reason was to keep the water in the deeper resevoire and maintain the water supply for Broken Hill. The tap water here got pretty muddy for a long while.

I think the last time they sailed on the lake was 2001. The Broken Hill Motor Boat Club is still quite active holding regular events on Copi Hollow which is just east of Lake Menindee. It is also a nice spot for a picnic and a swim. The closest thing we have to a beach.

Now if we can just get teh Fed Government to buy Cubby, and coax a little more rain out of the sky, we might just be able to get the trailer sailers out again.

Hey!,

Is Lennox Walker still alive?
He used to do a long range forecast for some of the monthly magazines.

Sorry, don't have his number though:-)
