DAINTREE RAIN

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Daintree should be ready for a good drench­ing in March if the start of the year was any­thing to go by. Cow Bay lo­cal Bob Perry logs daily rain­fall, and said that over Fe­bru­ary he mea­sured 1025mm of rain­fall at Cow Bay. Noah Creek has 1296mm, and Ma­son’s Cafe at Cape Tribu­la­tion re­ported 1107mm. Mr Perry said the signs were good for a healthy wet sea­son com­pared to sea­sons past. “The last 5 year av­er­age for Cow Bay in Fe­bru­ary was 739mm.” Mr Perry also mea­sured 463.5mm of rain­fall in Jan­uary. “So we are off to a good start for the Wet Sea­son and March is usu­ally our wettest Month.”
