Welcome - If you see a big green blob below, that is because we are so new, the paint isn't dry yet and Google have't activated the adverts.
To help fund the cost of the site, the second post on each page will be a small advert and that is it. (I can't stand adverts on websites)

Hi all. A cool windy start to Wed. Morning but an awesome sunrise due to the dust particles. By the looks of everything the dry is set to continue but we could see a small shower or 2 over the next week if the models are correct.

Hi Retired Weather man and thanks for joining this one. There are only up to 24 users subscribed so far, but we only opened it up last night after testing. We have sent PMs to quite a few old WZ users and we are also about to pay for Google Adverts to get the site noticed. It is always hard to start new forums, because without people posting, others do not join and with out people joining, we do not get new posts.

We have gone a bit crazy with the setup of the forum and our load testing has shown we can get over 60,000 posting and browsing at the same time, so it should (touch wood) keep working during multiple major events.

If you (or anyone else) has any requests for the site, let me know and we will do our best to make it happen.

In the mean time, let people you know that we exist and we can build the user base up.

Enjoy the weather! ThumpUp

Could see a massive plume of smoke to the North today.
9 news article said
A camping ground has been evacuated due to a bushfire on Bribie Island, off Brisbane.
The fire began as a planned burn but is now burning out of control on the northern end of the island.
Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said it poses no threat to property.

I can see a huge orange glow over central Bribie from up here in Ocean View. Looks like the main fire front is towards the southern end and then there looks like there are multiple smaller fires towards the north.

Yeah winds are gusting over 60km/h here. Getting stronger as the day goes on. Toowoomba and Warwick are copping stronger winds. There has to dust coming in soon with all this wind.

Quite an interesting wind change in the night. At 11:20pm, the wind changed from SW and blowing at 20ks to southerly and less than 5kts for the rest of the night. It was even accompanied by a tiny shower of rain, which I wasn't expecting.

I even went out to see if a hose pipe had burst and water was hitting the side of the house, bit it was actually rain!

0.2mm all up. Love

A strange night here last night. Even though temps suggested it was cooler it felt rather warm and muggy.

The southerly has pushed its way up the coast and the Brisbane Wave Rider Buoy recorded a Hmax of 8 meters just before midday.

Also bush fires threatened residents at Narangba, they were placed on watch and act. In Noosa the fire near the Golf Course came within meters of houses. Fortunately the change helped the situation a little.

The next week still looks grim with only a slight possibility of scattered showers and maybe a total of 4 mm’s.

Although it is not part of this thread it was of interest that Cairns recorded a frost for the first time in 60 years this morning.

Somewhat surprising about a frost in Cairns itself, as its min this morning was 7.9C. The lowest air temp for a possible frost is 2C. Maybe up on the Tablelands, but not Cairns with a temp like that.

I spoke to a customer in Port Douglas today and he said it was cold there this morning. He said the heater on his car has been broken for years and only the air con works and it was a horrible drive to work today.

For down in this part of the state, it looks like we have a few lovely warm days into next week, in the mid 20s and sunshine. Fingers crossed for a drop of rain on Wednesday.

Howdy Everyone and it is nice to see a fresh new forum,
I am just off of Alf Dobson Road in Narangba and had a bit of a worrying evening yesterday. The RFS were excellent and lots of people were offering to help evacuate the cats from the local cattery. Luckily the fire stayed to the south and was mostly out before the southerly change came though, so it wasn't needed, but it was great to see everyone come together. Big thumbs up to everyone!

Woke up to a surprising light drizzle this morning. I doubt it will even show in the rain gauge but it might settle the dust a bit.
Glad all is ok with you and the cats CSNarangba.
