Rainfall uneven around region

By CHRIS LYNCHchrisl@gladstoneobserver.com.au

A whopping 100mm of rain fell on Lake Awoonga over the weekend, while other parts of the region re- ceived little or no rain.

Rockhampton Weather Office forecaster Mike Griffin said yes- terday 62mm was recorded near the Calliope Central Bowls Club, while 94mm was recorded by one Benaraby resident.

"There were some good falls over Capricornia,'' Mr Griffin said.

"Thangool also got 42 mm in the 24 hours to 9am and 88mm for the weekend.''

He predicted more isolated storms over southern parts of Ca- pricornia today. "With this inland trough all the storms are developing and moving onto the coast. "That's breaking down so it might be the last time we see af- ternoon showers in this sequence.

"There is a hint of another trough developing inland next week that might move to the coast.

Mr Griffin said humidity levels were well above normal.

"Normally we get around 30 per cent humidity in the after-noon and 50 percent in the morning.

"Now we're getting 70 per cent in the morning and 50 percent rel- ative humidity in the afternoon.
