Water likely to flow into Coongie Lakes. Should be great for travel to the area during southern winter/spring. LINK

With ex TC Olga expected to re-form in the Gulf, I think it's quite reasonable to expect some good rain at least in the Georgina / Hamilton R catchments, and quite possibly in the Diamantina & Thompson / Barcoo catchments...

Given that there is already quite a bit of water already in the system, flood warnings current for Georgina R / Eyre Ck, & Cooper Ck, moderate flooding easing at Monkira (Diamantina R), I wouldn't rule out the possibility of another 'significant river event' this year...

Early days yet, but I am 'cautiously optimistic' ;-))

planning to be out that way mid-year..

Have a look at the forecast for Sunday on the Bom site. Whole of QLD has rain forecast. Last Saturday when they named her I said to a couple of friend's she sounds like a old cold B. We have a cyclone/flood plan but only if they come from the East. Might need to rethink it. Been looking forward to the King Tide on Sunday. Had a fishing trip planned will see.
