No they didn't. They said there is an 80% chance of exceeding the average based on historical data. That means they also said there is a 20% chance it won't happen.

Wonder if we will have a more active cyclone season this year?

No idea, but we should by now start to see signs of storms developing in the south east of the state.

The air is still way too dry. I witnessed an ice ring around the Sun this afternoon so hopefully things are changing.

Total fire ban here.

I saw some jet streams today. Hopefully they come through for me and we get rain in a week or so.

Hope this doesn't sound silly but comparing a Cat 3-4 cyclone on Australia vs Florida, is the effect worse because of higher populations and more built up in Florida?

Bit of cloud out today.

Florida has around 20 million people living there (Australia 24 million) . It is also low lying in many places . Until Katrina in New Orleans ,Hurricane Andrew which cut through the middle of Florida was the most costly back in 1992.

We were told there was going to be a storm surge with Marcia and we were told to evacuate, was there? I don't think there was down our way at Mulambin.

Assuming the BOM is right, the minimum in Yeppoon was warmer than Townsville, Cairns or Mackay last night at 21 deg. Was forecast to drop to 14 deg, never happened and I don't know why. Wind just stayed NE all night.

Probably best that from now on when you are warned for the potential of disaster that you simply ignore the warnings and go play down the beach. wink

Considering all the stations around you went close to forecast including St Lawrence and Gladstone your station may have had a fault or you may have just gotten very lucky.

I had a look at my weather station it recorded 20 deg overnight so must have been correct.

No rain here for at least another 10 days.

From the Far North Qld thread , I know it's dry at the moment but after a couple of quiet (ish) cyclone years :

Quote:
This season, we expect to see an average to above-average (Av=11) number of tropical cyclones forming. The main contributor to this outlook is the La Niņa-like temperatures in the Pacific Ocean. Warm seas to the north of Australia and in the eastern Indian Ocean may further help fuel cyclone development.
These patterns are also associated with increased rainfall and flood risk.

My weekend prediction.
Temps to plummet.
Drizzle rain.
Wind that could cut ice.

Yep. I am going camping with my dog and sleeping in my car.

First 30 deg here since March. Overcast, dry air and wind coming not from the sea though, nothing like summer's 30 deg.

34.4°C on the 12th of September in 2013 , so it was a bit warmer back then. Warmest on record .

Kinka Beach? Wind in the evening is a bit cooling despite it saying it's 20deg.

GFS has Yeppoon on 31-33deg next Sunday and Monday... though probably more like 28 deg.

Aren't the high pressure systems meant to be further south at this time of year? Would more rain keep us from having above average temperatures with more cloud?
