Australia FNQ rain eases Wed 7 Feb 2018  Updated Wed 7 Feb 2018 - Rain on the tropical Far North QLD coast eased and moved north in the 24 hours to 09.00 Wednesday, following the slow northward movement of the monsoon trough with its embedded low off the coast. The heaviest falls were around Mossman and in the Daintree with Reef Park, just south of Port Douglas, the highest on 175mm. This was its heaviest February fall in over 15 years' reporting.

With so much cloud and rain about, the FNQ coast north of Cairns was uncharacteristically cool today. Cooktown and Cape Flattery to its south both recorded top temperatures of 27.0, only two or three degrees above maxima recorded on the Granite Belt of SE QLD. The top of 27 at Cape Flattery was its lowest February maximum in a 15-year history.
