Some pretty decent gusts recorded so far up to 3pm around the southeast including:

89km/hr - Wellcamp Airport
83km/hr - Gatton
80km/hr - Brisbane Airport and Oakey
76km/hr - Coolangatta and Toowoomba

As at 3pm, Energex reported 1703 without power, many of those due to downed powerlines.

The W to SW'lies still look like progressively moderating later this afternoon/early this evening but this easing will probably be delayed around the islands and some of the more exposed parts of the coastal fringe as the vigorous southerly change surges northwards.

Hopefully should feel a lot cooler overnight tonight and not be as hot on Wednesday… but this reprieve doesn't last long with the very hot conditions still on track to develop later this week in SEQ, especially away from the coast.

There is currently a faint glimmer of hope on the horizon with the EC ensemble showing some signs of a possible increase in moisture and instability developing in mid-November but it’s too far away to be worth giving any serious thought to yet.

P.S. Warrego Highway has been closed in both directions at time of writing due to powerlines downed onto the road. There's also a fire that started nearby.
