It is a complete contrast in temperatures between north eastern parts of Australia and the interior of the continent as great wave conditions continue today. More heat wave conditions are expected for the next several days particularly in South Australia and bordering with Victoria and Southwestern NSW. Temperatures of about 40C will not be uncommon in this region as with other parts of the central parts of the continent.

More flooding is expected in central Queensland along the coast and in areas in central Queensland as the tropical low moves inland.

The Bureau of Meteorology map has been rather accurate in depicting both the timing and path of this now official Tropical Cyclone Dylan expected to make landfall on the central Queensland coast 1am - overnight.

With it rainfall totals of 500mm or so are not out of the question.

Rainfall of the order of over 200mm occurred in several locations although spots of about 400mm also were observed. Howard Springs received a total of 412mm in the recent rainfall event associated with intense tropical low.

In contrast, there are parts of the country officially decleared in drought with some nearly receiving the lowest rainfall on record. The istuation is grim with more areas expected to enter official drought declaration if rain does not occur soon.
