Overnight rains were particularly heavy, with Cairns Airport ending up with 118mm in the 24 hours to 9am this morning. Up in Cooktown the 9am total was a whopping 210mm, while Innisfail received 132mm. Rains eased today with Cairns Airport currently reading 12mm since 9am. The rain is set to stay around until Tuesday, with some heavy periods expected. Another 100+mm would be nice to see.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology website, Lake Morris, the main Cairns water supply, was at 82.3% on 18 May. Hopefully will see a bit of an upward spike in the next couple of days..
