Yes you are absolutely correct RWM. I wish I had screenshot the 1st story that circulated as it stated Cairns. As my father-in-law grew up in Cairns and has seen frost at the Race Course so I assumed it was correct.

The updated story has now stated it was the Atherton Tablelands which recorded minus 2°C at the Caravan Park. My wife’s Grandparents lived on the Atherton Tablelands. We have done a few trips up but not since the late 1990’s. The Atherton Tablelands is not Cairns. We went up there one year and I got caught out with how cool the day was up at that elevation in July.

That is so annoying when a reckless story is posted on the news. The only thing is it was cold in Cairns at 7.9°C.

It is a beautiful sunny day over BR right now.

Just had a look at the QLD forecast and SEQ could see a very slight chance of a TC on Tuesday and Wednesday. It is very slight. My feelings right now would suggest a dry TC “IF” it can come together.

Having a look at the LI,s and Cape and forecast soundings, Wednesday looks like the best possible chance but it still looks slim.

Thank you for the heads up Colmait. I am still leaning the whole Cape, LI and convection thing, but I will have a look at the charts and see if I can come to the same conclusion. Any knowledge from you and others is greatly appreciated!

Hopefully after the fires this week and the continuing dry conditions, we do not have dry storms with next to no rain reaching the ground level. I guess this is a reminder for me to go and clean the gutters, because the gum trees have filled them up with the recent wind.

The cattery already had a bush fire evacuation plan apparently, which is get everyone out and down to another cattery/kennels.
Still lots of smoke around today from Bribie and my local fire.

OH my , and yet another forum. That just has to be good.BigGrin

Thanks for the invitation admin'. It makes you feel special.BigGrin
Its obvious you go back to places that treat you nicely.
Nice format and some familiar names and climate change thread.
Destroying the climate thread at WZ destroyed WZ l believe. The forum was always abuzz with the latest..
.....
Calendar spring is here next week and some changes on the surface synoptic appearing . A nice deep drop in isobars off the east coast of OZ this week.
There is a tropical infeed into this tropical trough and the onshore flow looks quite moist on ACC g.
Chances of precip' from Gippy' to just south of Townsville.

I am officially celebrating today as the start of spring (on my calendar anyway) with a large bacon and eggs breakfast. 27 degrees is forecast today, and Crikey and Colmait both saying a slight chance of a storm on Wednesday.

The smoke from Thursday's fires near here has gone and the air feels clean again.

Happy days.Cool

Hi Falling_Droplet and it is great to see people slowly trickling onto this forum. Also, great to have a weather station in your part of the region. I haven't been out to Ferny Grove way for years and since the WoolShed has gone. I dread to think how many years that would be.
Not as warm here as BOM were forecasting today and only to 22 degrees so far. Perhaps there are a few more clouds floating past than were forecast.

Great to see members chatting away. Good signs for a promising forumBigGrin

Here is ACC r for wednesday at 4pm. Certainly looks ok. The only issue is the very dry air, low dew points , dry air we have had.

Wondering if this moisture can clear the dry out. It could be the difference between virga and a good storm.

As for storm potential analysis, l wil,leave that to the storm experts.ThumpUp
But quite a few ticks here in my book
some of my notes..

'wednesday 28th aug 2019
tropical dip in isobars .
Moisture infeed from the north coral sea
Likely increase in dew points
2 small low pressure eddies on the trough line
Max precip’ or storms most likely diurnal max in the afternoon. This is when ACC r has the strongest precip’ signal.
The extent of the signal is quite broad , running from west of the divide at Townsville
region right down to west of divide near Sydney. This signal extends to the coast.'

Thanks CantSpellNarangba. As far I am aware there aren't any other publicly available personal weather station updating in real time in my part of Brisbane.

The woolshed closed I think in 2006 and now of course is a housing estate!RollEyes. Actually for many years the woolshed reported daily rainfall to the BoM, until the woolshed closed down: http://www.bom.gov.au/js...896&p_stn_num=040461

The temperature rose to almost 25 C at 11am until some cu clouds developed and the temperature fell to 22 C. Clouds eased in afternoon and the temperature rose back to 25 C.

The sounding for Brisbane has very slightly improved, but it is still marginal. There is only about 4 mm of rain at the most predicted for the storm so it has more of a chance of being a dry cell. That also posses problems as this could trigger a few fires. I am just hanging back a little just to wait for the next couple of updated runs. The latest sounding also shows the potential for the storm to basically choke itself pretty quickly. About the only thing that is being a constant in the scenario for any storm activity, if they can develop, is that they are most likely to be from 10:00 am to around 2:00 pm.
But once again I am waiting for the next 2 runs and updates to check the scenarios.

Hi guys, good to be here. Here are my thoughts regarding Wed/Thur:

Just doing the early morning model roundup and noticed that last night's EC run actually doesn't look too bad particularly for Thursday afternoon and evening? Not a great deal of instability as to be expected at this time of year but surprisingly there's enough moisture even in the lowers there to tap into ahead of the dryline (finally we get a little ridge set up across the Coral/Tasman Sea to provide this) so we could even see some surface based convection rather than just the high-based [censored]which looks more likely on Wednesday (though I think we will still see some surface based convection on Wednesday, just very isolated and probably dependent on cloud cover). ICON looks very similar to this as well.

Then there's GFS which looks very different for Thursday which has the upper low pushing NE too quickly, dragging the dryline and associated drier westerlies through to the coast by early Thursday morning.

Anyway, it's good to finally have something other than cold nights and clear skies to talk about.

Hi MegaMatch and it is great to have some "model interpreters" arrive on this forum. Although I am Sydney based, I fly into Brisbane at 2pm on Wednesday OhMyGod and knowing my luck, just in time for storms.
