Tropical Cyclone Dylan named as a category 1 tropical cyclone

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 and Deficiencies January 2014 5

Rainfall January Australia image imageThe weekly rainfall map clearly shows the  effect of the path of the tropical low and associated rainfall event. 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.

Destructive winds, heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding and large hailstones are likely.

This is the phase when it approaches and weakens near the Gold Coast most likely due to being overtaken by the gust front of a storm following and merging with it.
