BOM says tropical low causing flooding in north-west Queensland will weaken, head south-east

A tropical low that has brought widespread flooding in north-west Queensland is expected to head south, bringing rain to regions that have experienced one of the driest summers on record.
Records show in Dalby, on the Darling Downs, west of Brisbane, this summer was the third driest since 1900. 

Farmer Daniel Skerman said parts of the Darling Downs had received only "10 or 20" millimetres of rain "since the tap turned off in November".

"Everyone's probably just surprised we can go from being so dry from, you know, the drought from 2018/19, to so wet all of a sudden in 2021/22 and then back to being so dry again," he said.
