Monday, 3 March 2008 - Monthly Climate Summary for Queensland - Product code IDCKGC14L0

Monsoon brings wet and cool conditions to much of the state during February. 

Summary

Wet weather continued in Queensland during February under the influence of a mature La Niña event in the Pacific basin. During the month, flash flooding caused havoc in the Capricornia, Central and North Coastal districts.  The active monsoon trough brought good falls to eastern districts and adjacent inland, and kept daytime temperatures cooler than average. The exception occurred in parts of the west and northwest which missed out on the rain, with below average totals and warmer than normal temperatures. 


Rainfall

Rainfall totals for the month were above average over most of the east coast and adjacent inland as well as Cape York Peninsula and part of the Maranoa and Warrego. Some record high rainfall was recorded in the central coast and tropics. Many parts of the northwest of the state, however, received below average rainfall. Elsewhere totals did not vary significantly from average, apart from a few isolated pockets, largely due to the localised shower and thunderstorm activity.  Taking the state as a whole,  it was the wettest February since 2000.

A series of heavy rainfall events which affected parts of the northern tropics, central and southern regions, led to flooding in a number of river systems as well as localised flash flooding.  

Early in the month, an upper trough over the south east triggered showers with some isolated heavy falls. Hinze Dam in the Gold Coast Hinterland received 287 mm in the 24 hours to 9am on the 4th while Canungra recorded 247 mm.  

Further heavy falls with showers and thunderstorms saw a number of places record rainfall totals in excess of 150 mm in the Wide Bay and Burnett districts in the 24 hours to 9am on the 6th. 

During the 2nd week of February an active monsoon became established over the northern tropics. An embedded low pressure system triggered rain areas, scattered showers and storms which brought moderate to heavy falls about the Gulf and Tropics north of about Mackay and about the Capricornia coast over the following days, with many places recording daily totals over 200 mm.

Phenomenal rain caused flash flooding in the Mackay area on the morning of the 15th, with daily rainfall totals in excess of 600 mm recorded at a number of places. These include 625 mm at East Mackay, 615 mm at Gooseponds Alert and 610 mm at Mackay Alert.

The following day, the heaviest falls were received in the Herbert and Burdekin region.  Townsville recorded a daily total of 192 mm, Deeragun 442 mm, Black River 341 mm and Yabulu recorded 310 mm.

As the monsoon continued, locally heavy falls were recorded in the Capricornia on the morning of the 25th. Intense rainfall in Rockhampton, with over 100 mm falling in an hour led to flash flooding, while the Fitzroy river was already in flood. 

For the month, the wettest places were 1289.0 mm at Hospital Bridge Alert, 1254.0 mm at Greenmount Alert and 1235.0 mm at Mackay Alert.  All of these sites are in the Mackay area.

Brisbane's rainfall total of 216.8 mm compares to a long term average of 158 mm, and was the highest February total since 2003.   

Some sites had their highest total February rainfall on record.

Some sites had their lowest total February rainfall on record.

Temperature

Monthly Temperatures

Mean maximum temperatures were below average across most of the state except for the far west, and up to 4 degrees below average over the Maranoa and Warrego districts. 

Mean minimum temperatures were average along the east coast and adjacent inland districts, slightly above average in the far western districts and 2 - 3 degrees below average over the remainder of the state

A combination of rainfall and cloud cover kept the maximum temperatures at bay, but maintained slightly warmer than average minimum tempeatures especially over the north.  Some sites had their coldest February day (lowest maximum temperature) on record.

Taking the state as whole, it was the coolest February since 2000. 

See a map of mean maximum temperatures. See a map of maximum temperature anomalies.
See a map of mean minimum temperatures. See a map of minimum temperature anomalies.

Brisbane had a mean maximum of 29 degrees (equal to long term average) and a mean minimum of 20.9 degree (−0.3 below long term average).

Daily Temperatures

The south east of the state experienced hot westerly winds around the 23rd which kept the sea breeze offshore and brought near record temperatures of 40 degrees to Brisbane City, Brisbane Aero, Tewantin and Gold Coast Seaway.  Temperatures on this day were 8 - 10 degrees above the long term average.   See a map of daily maximum temperature anomalies on the 23rd.  Some sites had their highest February temperature on record.

Notes

This statement has been prepared based on information available at 8 am on Monday 3 March 2008. Some checks have been made on the data, but it is possible that results will change as new information becomes available.

Normals are long-term means based on observations from all available years of record, which vary widely from site to site. They are not shown for sites with less than 10 years of record, as they cannot then be calculated reliably.  *In this case, normals from a nearby suitable site may be included to calculate statistics  (these are marked with an *).
The median is sometimes more representative than the mean of "normal" rain.

The Rank indicates how rainfall this time compares with the climate record for the site, based on the decile ranking (very low rainfall is in decile 1, low in decile 2 or 3, normal in decile 4 to 7, high in decile 8 or 9 and very high is in decile 10).
The Fraction of normal shows how much rain has fallen this time as a percentage of the long-term mean.
