    Extract April 2014
    The latest rain brings Normanton’s wet season rainfall total (October to April) up to 860mm, which is right on average for the last 13 years.

    The wet season has been a good one elsewhere in northern Queensland, particularly over the western Peninsula.

    Kowanyama Airport has seen over 2.2 metres of rain during the wet season, almost double the long term average and the wettest in over 100 years of records. More than half of this rain fell during the wettest February on record, while Tropical Cyclone Gillian provided a good amount in March.
