Some of the many waterspouts that form over the warm waters off the Florida coast are also great to see.

Yeah the landmass of the North American continent is a massive help. It's also cool to watch the satellite imagery during the bigger cold outbreaks when the fairly dry polar continental airmass and its NW'ly flow crosses the northeastern corner of the Gulf and travels over just enough water to start picking up moisture and start forming the spectacular striated cloud patterns (that are characteristic of polar continental flows travelling over water) by the time the flow reaches western FL.

Fire weather warning current today for the Downs/Granite Belt and Maranoa and Warrego today due to the gusty dry unseasonably hot winds and fuel loads... FFDI map below:

From what I've learnt Florida gets a lot of summer thunderstorms but its an expensive venture.Consider Singapore which is easy to get to from the Gold coast and cheap stay over on the east coast which is quieter with more parks and islands off the coast to hire a pushy and pedal around.Go during the inter monsoonal periods that being between April _ June or September - November. Love the place been there 10 times. Similarly you cant go wrong with jumpin on a plane to Darwin during the buildup and wet season. You haven't lived until you've seen a Top End thunderstorm

Love Singapore, but their storms are problematic at best of times due to the haze (esp in the intra monsoonal periods and/or if there are fires in Indo). The Sumatra lines are also amazing, experienced a few of those in Singapore and Malaysia. They are akin to Gulf Lines of the Top End or deep thermal troughs in southern Aus.

Thats very true the haze has caught me out a couple of times over there I guess the safest and most productive time over there in that regard is the month of April straight after the wet season.Have seen those Sumatran storms to which occur in Singapore during July / August , awesome as you say

Not surprising but still truly remarkable max temps today.

More of the same tomorrow before the gusty W to SW winds spread to the coast and make things pretty blustery by Fri/Sat:

I don't think I can remember a winter where there's been fog almost every morning in these parts. Even on the cooler mornings last week there were patches of fog. It's pretty incredible.

The cold blast after the change looks really short-lived as well, but I'm not complaining, I hate the cold!

Warm day, with low humidity and breezy winds. Fire Weather Warning for Severe Fire Danger conditions was issued today for the North Coast fire district.

Max temps today at:
Coffs Harbour - 33.2ºC
Kempsey - 32.4ºC
Port Macquarie - 32.4ºC

Kempsey had a peak wind gust of 82km/h at 12:03pm. Winds were somewhat weaker along the coastal fringe though.

It's now been 31 days since it last rained at Coffs Harbour. We've had 1.2mm here over the same period (all falling on the night of August 3rd).

It is still 30.3° at 17:11 Thursday evening in Brisbane. It maxed out at 15:19 with a high of 32.3°. (the record is 35.4° on the 24th 2009. 2nd highest was 32.8°) We had 30.2° inside the house most of the afternoon, and it is currently 29.9° inside and 28.3° outside ATM (17:14). I am looking forward the westerly front hitting the windows sometime this evening /tomorrow morning. I am over summer already. Saturday looks nice if it can hold to its 21°.

Amazing for August. Still can't get over how warm this autumn and winter have been. And after a warm one last year too. Looks like there might be some SE'lies with showers setting in later in the month putting a hold on the warmer weather.

Still think we are in good shape for a big storm season.

In a news article today:

The Bureau of Meteorology’s Climate Outlook for September through to November estimated an 80 per cent chance for Queensland’s springtime temperatures to be above the average.

Be interesting to see how the planes will land in those winds at Brisbane Airport. Sydney can get away with it as they have a east west runway, Brisbane and the Gold Coast do not.

Brisbane Airport has a second runway (runway 14/32) aligned NW-SE but its length means that it's more suited for relatively smaller lighter aircraft (737s, Dash-8's).

The current aviation weather forecast for Brisbane Airport has 22kt sustained from 250 degrees (roughly WSW) between 10am and 7pm tomorrow, gusting to 35kt so that'll cause a fair bit of crosswind component for landings for either runway. Many of the larger airline aircraft have crosswind limits up to 33kt on dry runways and considering the winds are going to be offset to the main runway by 60 degrees, many of them may still manage to get in.

These gusty winds for tomorrow and Sat have been expected for many days though.

Wow, looks like Sunday morning could be very cold around here. Monday will also be quite cold. Looks like -4 to -5 here for Sun. and maybe slightly warmer for Monday morning. Still below average lows after that for next few days. I was kind of enjoying the warmer weather. Afternoons will still be mild to warm with the exception of Saturday.
No significant rain for awhile...
Very brown here with the heavy frosts and dry conditions, which is not too unusual around here.

I was in Singapore back in March. Even then we experienced some haze shrouded heavy thundershowers. I would also love to go back, especially for the food! 🦀

Got to 32 at Murwillumbah today. I was quite impressed with the apparent temp of 31 degrees too, as normally any heat at this time of year comes with no humidity and winds, bringing the apparent temp down.

btw good to see at least some rain forecast next week, even if its just a piddle

Note - these maps were using yesterday's 00z run of GFS so things may have changed a bit by now.... maps for midday feels-like temp for Sat, change in max temp from Thu to Sat, and max wind gusts below. The stronger gusty W to SW'lies and progressive drop in temps over 2-days are still pretty much as has been expected. The gusty winds may elevate fire dangers again despite the cooler air.

But by the start of the working week, daytimes should bounce back up to warmer than normal again.

P.S. yesterday was the 9th day in a row of significantly above average max temps and the 6th day in a row of max temps into decile 9 territory:

My apologies Ken your right, it does have a 2nd small runway, I didn't realize it could cater for jets.
