Is this mid level cap just coastal again

Tweedstorm: I was referring to the 500hpa level which does sometimes confuse me if its mid level or upper level. It only looks like for Fri-Sat but the weaker winds and they would be associated with that warmer stable air. IMO higher winds speeds at that level would aid to better shear and ultimately we get better storms if shear is right and ofcourse cold air aloft. Sorry about my lack of detail on my last post wish I had the time to really look into things deeper as it becomes abit of a guess. Just talking weather happy to hear your thoughts.

After the west coast of NZ and possibly mount read, you would have to think the upper springbrook site would have to be the wettest site in the world south of the tropic of capricorn?

There are two rain pluviometer gauge recordings at Springbrook (1) an Alert station data operated by BoM and (2) Telemetry station data recorded by Qld department of natural resources mines and energy - their data is available at
https://water-monitoring.information.qld.gov.au/
Look for standalone pluviometer gauges.
2012 to 2018 with about a one year gap shows 15000mm total recorded over that period!

While today's rainfall was modest, I was surprised at how far inland the showers penetrated. Scenic Rim area in particular did well.

You're not wrong re rubbish shear on Fri/Sat Steve O. Although the upper levels are cool on Friday, that's only because there's a big upper trough just off the Queensland coast during this time. There's no real steering influences or decent triggers behind it. Garden variety pulsey crap at most. On Saturday, the mids-uppers warm drastically as the upper trough moves away and is replaced by the quidge - one of those 'dry' looking, stable days with an unbreakable cap it's looking like. At the same time though, there's a really nice front moving through far SW parts and NE NSW which reaches SEQ on Sunday. Sunday looks okay at this stage but obviously the usual factors could complicate things, too early to tell.

PS check out the buildup through western parts of NSW and parts of QLD currently. Really nice to see:

There's already been some mentions of it in the Day to Day thread also. Sunday would depend on the timing of the coastal change among other things too.

Hard to get excited about the upcoming set-up if you live in coastal SEQ. Even Sunday looks problematic in so many ways despite the pretty colours on GFS. Inland areas are going to have a lot of fun though and the weekend outlook may yet improve for us over the coming days.

Oh sorry keep jumping between threads. Think the next lot of upcoming weather needs to be in the day to day or new thread.
