Alarms weren't needed this morning, with the sound of rain doing the job to wake us up instead.
On average Townsville should see 4 days and 10mm of rain across September.
The Ross River Dam recorded 73% capacity at 1am, so fingers are crossed that some of the wet stuff has fallen in the catchment.
While it has been a refreshing sight, it won't be hanging around for long.
The forecast for the remainder of the week will see cloudy conditions, but only 5%-30% chance of rain.
