Maybe Steve,

But it has to rain big mobs for enough water to come down.

Even with the water over the causeway at Birdsville means that water will dissipate into Goyders Lagoon and other tributary creeks along the way and it might also take another two months to get to where the Warburton flows into Lake Eyre.

Still, if more rain falls, you never know.........................

With the amount flowing through Birdsville presently it's quite likely there will be some water at least go into the Warburton Groove but not be visible around the Lake from anywhere accessible by 4x4. To start filling Lake Eyre considerable rain often needs to fall in several different catchments at different times arriving at the Lake simultainiously. I wouldn't be planning a trip there yet.
Appears by the Lake Eyre Yacht Club web site that local rain is already drying out & water coming down the Diamantina is a while off yet.
