Some seriously impressive dew points around, highest I've seen is 26.4 at Tewantin, that's up there in terms of SEQ, do they keep records on that sort of stuff?

Second night running that dew points in many locations on the coastal strip of SEQ are higher than most locations near Darwin.

The highest ever dew point I remember is 27 maybe a decade or so ago on a day when the temperature reached over 40 in Brisbane.

Google on extreme dew points finds this blog post with an interesting comment by Blair Trewin

Well at 1830 at the Evans Head station, dew point was sitting around 27.1 and no wonder it is suffocating here in Wardell.

The last heatwave we had in November was followed by that massive hailstorm.

Had a look at Wynnum-Manly-Lota foreshore this morning at the peak of the highest tide of the year. No difference to the last 60 years. Have picture in 1981 of cars being pushed through the water at Wynnum ( no cyclone ), 1974 about 1 metre higher than today, was also higher in 1958 and 1956 when I recall wading through the water over the same stretch. The retaining walls, road heights and drainage systems are the same today as 60 years ago.

So, sea levels are not rising. No surprise here.

One king tide eyeballed at a single location on a single day doesn't have anything to do with long term global sea level changes.

Thank you Ken, not only for your great charts and information but also for being a point of sanity on issues such as these.

Yes, thank you Ken. You are a valued member of this weather forum & have great respect.
However, people have a right to voice an opinion without entering into an argument who is right or wrong. Given there is a rising sea level opinion, lots of people will be buying schnorkels, good for the schnorkel business I suppose.
BTW, anyone ever explored the idea the ground in sinking with the movement of tectonic plates???

No worries Climnate Strange, and thanks Mad Elf smile Not sure if the 2nd part of your post was directed at me since I never said no-one could have an opinion. But having an "opinion" on something like rising sea levels is like asking someone's opinion on whether the sun rises in the east in the morning or if heavy smoking often causes lung cancer. It is what it is, unlike something that's open to valid conjecture such as "do you believe there's other life forms out there".

Re not taking into account sinking ground when measuring sea level changes, that's one of the biggest myths that's been perpetuated for years. It's one of the first and most fundamental things that are taken into account when measuring changes. GPS/satellite altimetry which can accurately measure true changes in sea level regardless of whether landmasses in the area are sinking or rising.

Anyway back on topic, here's the latest suggestion from the NCEP ensemble for Brisbane:

Attached is recent GPS/satellite altimetry showing rising/falling landmasses around the World.

Yes, that's for landmasses of course. GPS/satellite altimetry also measures sea level changes.

Of interest when I was posted to Townsville, the biggest non TC influenced tide I observed there was back in February 1987 although it was forecast to be no higher than the usual 4.1 metre spring tide. Not a cloud in the sky. It flooded our then indoor cricket centre in Boundary Street near the railway line. So the tides certainly vary, short and long term.

Thanks for the chart Ken, sorry 2nd part not directed at you but others who may have been looking for an argument.
RWM, great illustration whats going on around the world in terms of land mass movement. Long term, many people will be moving.
Currently o/cast with dark clouds building to NW.

No worries at all Mad Elf smile Yeah the tides in many places up in the tropics can be pretty spectacular to watch especially those along the Kimberleys.

Some uncomfortably high heat index values coming up tomorrow with the northwest winds eventually swinging around to the southwest but not drying out the air much even inland of the coast. GFS heat index forecast below:

Sst off Moreton is 26 degrees which is pretty warm in my books.
This cracker season may soon get interesting?
