Rains set to per­sist

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

RAIN, rain, go away.

Since March 1 the re­gion has been sat­u­rated with al­most 400mm of rain and ac­cord­ing to the Cairns Bu­reau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy there is more to come.

Moss­man has recorded 360mm and Port Dou­glas 356mm with the La Nina sys­tem ex­pected to bring plenty more be­fore the wet sea­son fin­ishes.

Cairns Bu­reau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy duty fore­caster Ben Suter said the Dou­glas re­gion can ex­pect above av­er­age rain­fall events un­til May if the La Nina event car­ries on.

“It is dif­fi­cult to fore­cast so far in ad­vance but the wet sea­son may last un­til early May,” he said.
