Lucky,


Firstly, I don't know where DD gets his rainfall figures but BOM reports: Rain since 9 am today was 0.0mm.  As of right now the track is rated Good 3.
 
The forecast is for showers Friday & Sat with possibility of storm Friday.  That rain may OR may not fall at Bundall, so nobody knows what the rating will be on the day.  fate will determine that.

I suggest you play the odds and assume the track will be good or dead at worst.

Are you going to tell us the name of the noble steed?  If you can, I am happy to rate the race for you.

I'll let you into a little secret.  The rainfall figure came from the GC Racecourse Manager who said mid-afternoon that the track rating as of today was Dead 5.

Oh.  Thanks DD  :rolleyes:

BOM must have their guage in the only dry bit.  RISA still saying Track Good 3 ... what use is that?  :mad:

Just over half a inch as of around 1pm yesterday.

With this patchy rain , it could differ in certain parts of the track.

I'm sure we have seen at Eagle Farm where it has been raining on the grandstand side and fine over in Mien St

I don't think there is too much around today, most of it seems to be off the coast and staying there.

Interesting though some long range forecaster was on the news a couple of nights ago and reckons Brisbane will be hit by a cyclone in three weeks... last week of Jan or first week of feb, the clock is ticking...   :biggrin:

Thankfully the much-improved reports now available to professional meteorologists have all but put these crooks out of business.

Anyone who believes in long range weather forecasters should start subscribing to fictional times.

Don't ya like it when we get told there's a chance of a cyclone in Jan, Feb, March.  Imagine paying for such crap.

Gales along the southern coast with occasional showers coming in off the sea.

GC track will be lucky to dodge a few mm.  I'd be working on a DEAD for tomorrow.  You choose the number. :rolleyes:

We are looking at a fast track for Capalaba with the false rail out 3.5 mtrs at the first bend.  :lol:

Lovely night in the River City.

Eagle Farm will be in perfect condition tomorrow - unless the weather gods have other thoughts.

Hot and dry in the SE corner of the Sunshine State at this stage.

No rain during the week, but showers coming in early evening.  Forecast suggests rain tomorrow and into Saturday. Will take 15 mm or more to have an adverse effect on Eagle Farm for Saturday.

Some heavy showers around Brisbane before dawn.  Falls have been patchy, but local flooding in some areas.

The racecourses would have received light rain at least.  Forecast to clear later today.  Stay tuned.

Send it down.  We need rain more than we need a race meeting

I'm a long way from the track, but we got 90mm last night, which was great.

It'll take more than rain to cancel a meeting at Eagle Farm.

The track received a mere 22 mm.

Humidity remains very high, but I doubt there'll be any more today.

BT, must have been dry down your way. 

Great to hear that rain last night even though the humidity is through the roof

Yeah, things were starting to get a bit parched gratlog - I would have had to top up the pool this weekend, so it came at a nice time, filled things up nicely.

btw, I'm still trying to get over your way one day... just don't seem to get over there any more, been spending all weekend lately battling the overgrown garden, lol.

No worries BT. We'll come over to your place for a cuppa one day but I'll let you know first so as to catch you at home.

Looks like there will be plenty of rain around later this afternoon and tonight, continuing into tomorrow morning... whether it'll be constant enough to make a significant difference to the track is still anyone's guess, but I reckon we'll be looking at a slow track at least tomorrow.

The Brissie tracks would have copped around 15 mm in a storm before midday.

Eagle Farm now would be SLOW.  What we're racing on tomorrow will obviously depend on what happens overnight.  Plenty of cloud around with patchy showers coming in from the west.

No rain to speak of since yesterday arve. Plenty of cloud about and humidity remains high. Should be in for a fine day.

Eagle Farm rated SLOW, but likely to be better than that by midday.

Gotta be affected, SW.

No recent rain, but not good drying weather.

I'd be working on SLOW for openers.
