On the WZ Qld radar can see a line developing from Se to Nw near Warwick moving west lots of fresh white sparks. Fingers crossed sarvi might deliver..

It was great waking up at 5am to the sound of thunder, it should happen more often. Hopefully the radar will be back online by the time the line of storms moves through but at least we have a back-up radar!

Why is the Marburg radar so different to WZ radar? Nothing like it!

6.4mm here in the 24 hours to 9am this morning from a few evening showers that came in from the north off the ocean.
No rain here so far today, and not really expecting any, with just a small chance of a shower this afternoon.

The Marburg radar is really starting to piss me off, I really thought the Brisbane radar would be up running again by now! Why did it have to go down today! Surely tomorrow would have been better lol

4.30 ETA on radar. Interesting enough that warning says over the next several hours. So that's got to be more than 3 hours..

Nice sequence on the Marburg weather cam, almost looks like the cloud is leap frogging across the ground.
(sorry I don't know how to capture certain times)

Marburg is the same type of radar as Grafton (http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/radar/info/qld_info.shtml#marburg50)(http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/radar/info/nsw_info.shtml#grafton28).
