We've had a very dry "wet season" up here in Far North Qld this year. Central Qld got a massive cyclone but we've seen no cyclonic action up north - which is unusual since the season goes from November to April.
Do you think that we will get a cyclone up here this season?
Cyclone Larry came through in late March and last year we had a cyclone on my birthday - April 12th. So I still think that there's time for one to come through. We desperately need some good, sustained rainfall so a small cyclone or rain depression would do us good.
Right at this minute we have Cyclone Nathan hovering off the coast. It looks like he will head back out to sea without crossing the coast. But it is definitely a reminder that we have plenty of time for a cyclone to still get us.
