Looks like we are in for some rain over the next few days so I thought I'd track it a bit on here. The seaway is already dirty and any more significant rain will wipe out any chance we have of decent fishing for some time. All amounts are for the 24hours preceeding the date. Recorded rain at the seaway only.
- 9th October - 9am 41.1mm
- 10th October - 9am 24.2mm Wind Gusts up to 41knots! (76kph)
- 11th October - 9am 79mm!
- 12th October - 9am 2.6mm
Looks like the rain has finished for now but the seaway is a mess with dirty brown water. Over 200mm fell in the hinterland areas of the gold coast and most of it flows out the seaway. It will take weeks to clear, but depends on whether we get any more rain. Swells were recorded up to 8 metres in size but its going to drop pretty quickly and be under a metre by next monday. Looks like more rain forecast for Thursday/Friday lets hope its only showers.
