The decaying low could be also be described as due east of Yeppoon and moving away to the east. Final visual picture here includes a capture of Santa heading east to begin his stuff at NZ! http://www.weatherzone.com.au/satellite/qld/visible

Beautiful weather! Partly cloudy with heavy solid showers and thunder. Plenty heat and humidity. Just sounds right for summer tropical conditions. Min of 23.2C last night. So far today reached 27.8C. Humidity at 78% as of now. Rain was 27.8mm to 9am and so far its 3.4mm. More to come as convection flaring up. Dangerous surf and high tides out there with some squally winds in the rain.

Not too much weather happening here in Ballina, we had some light drizzle a few hours ago and its a little bit windy now.

27C the max on my station
75% Rh at the moment

And the sky is mostly fine with some light convection towards the west.

Disappointing today in that the convection looked like it was starting to really fire up along the range and it just fizzled, only got a shower of what looked like a decent cell developing coming in from the SE.

Merry Christmas to all too!!! It has been a very wet one for us so far!! Any chances of that ex-Fina reforming? It certainly looks settled on our doorstep and that circulating blob on the MT sat looks a bit too settled for comfort! Any thoughts?

Fina , won't convert back to Tropical .

Although she may intensify and even move closer .

So more rain isn't out of the Question , and a bit of wind .
But certainly the only destruction will be of Water Courses and Beach Erosion .

Merry Xmas

A cool, grey, showery Christmas morning here. 22.8c, with 79% rh and a breezy SSEer at 37 k/h. It doesn't feel like Aussie Christmas weather.
