Show­ers to start the week

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - TESS IKONOMOU

SHOW­ERS are tipped for Townsville dur­ing the first few days of the week, with the weather ex­pected to sta­bilise af­ter ex-trop­i­cal cy­clone Penny.

Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy fore­caster Michael Knepp said it was hard to see which parts of the city would ex­pe­ri­ence the most rain­fall as the strength of the show­ers was un­pre­dictable.

“It’s no guar­an­tee as they are hit and miss, but a trough is in­creas­ing the chance of a shower,” he said. “Those south­east­erly winds have been bring­ing in the drier air.”

An­gler Tay­lor Ca­son, 23, re­cently moved to Townsville from Syd­ney.

She said she had wait­ing for clear skies.

“It’s been per­fect, we’ve been wait­ing for the rain to die off so we could come out,” she said. “We’ve had sunny days and thought we’d come out and chill out and chuck a rod in.”

Ms Ca­son said she was still hold­ing out for her first catch in Townsville.

“I’ve caught noth­ing to­day … this is my first day fish­ing up here so noth­ing yet,” she said. been
