Last week the Townsville Dome broke, rivers were flooded, backyards became swimming pools, and our Ross River Dam grew phenomenally from 14%.
The rain was long overdue and while it is forecast for the remainder of this week, it won't compare with last week's drenching.
BOM has predicted a 50%-70% chance of showers for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
The latest reading of the Ross River Dam level saw it at an amazing 87%.
As to if/when water restrictions will be lifted- we'll keep you updated!
