Hello Gleno71.

My guess was vertical shear causing a layer of thin Strato Cumulus near the inversion.

You can also see gravity/standing waves in the Strato Cumulus layer caused by orographic effects extending south east from Lord Howe Island.

Wow, Windy EC has an elongated 10 days donut over SEQ & WB , but unusually GFS has a huge donut over most of QLD.
Glad we go the rain when we did. 41C max here today & expecting higher tomorrow.
Grass looking yellowish already.

Thankyou, could explain it I guess. I noticed the last several morning's the gold coast has has had a lot of low cloud on the coast at sunrise. Doesn't seem to affect Brisbane as bad for some reason.

Humidity is high again here , chance of a severe storm inland again, are the moisture profiles better out there today or is it just a carbon copy of Sunday's effort?

Doesn't look like much thunderstorm potential at all again today in SE QLD except for the outside chance of very localised gusty activity near southwestern or western parts of our region Tweedstorm.

Another setup lacking in decent moisture in addition to the strong capping near the coast and poor steering winds aloft.

In other news, disgusting night/morning with min temps around 5C above average for Brisbane and feels-like temps hovering in the high 20's.

Amberley also set a new record this morning for warmest Nov min temp getting down to only 23.8C, beating the previous record of 23.7C set in 2008 (records there date back to 1941).

Question for Ken - when you say there isn't any decent moisture is that at some higher altitude?

Because the 70-80% humidity that I've been walking in all day seems like plenty enough! poke

Kind of Stormwalker. Even though it's very muggy, dewpoints at ground level still aren't high enough (given the current high temps) for air parcels rising from the surface to become saturated at a sufficiently low height to stay warmer than the surrounding air (once an air parcel becomes saturated, it cools at a much slower rate than surrounding drier air).... so they don't rise much further.
Even parcels trying to rise from higher levels in the atmosphere have trouble trying to keep rising because there's not enough moisture up there either for them to become saturated and stay more buoyant than the surrounding air (there are some inland areas which are closer to borderline today though).

Even when the afternoon seabreeze brings in extra moisture, it's quite shallow and the cap (layer of warmer air just above the ground) tries to prevent air parcels from rising through it.

Massive cap on this morning's sounding - would need to get to like 36C+ to break it without any sufficient trigger in the area:

Caught the edge of a storm early this evening. Included a nice, loud crack of thunder from a nearby strike. Breezy at times, not much rain in it. 1.0mm since 9am.



It was part of a line of high-based, low-precipitating storms (nowhere getting more than 7mm) that moved through areas of the MNC this afternoon/evening. Decent amount of lightning under the stronger cells.
A warm and very humid day too. Dewpoints almost reaching 24 degrees in Port this afternoon.

Nice photos Seabreeze.

And yeah gleno, the capping particularly near the coast has been strong later in the afternoon and evening after the seabreeze has come in.

Looking forward to the cool change tomorrow but other than that, the weather just sucks at the moment. Not sure why for the second year in a row that October has provided the goods and November for the most part has dried right out (I know it's only early but seriously, there looks to be next to nothing for the next week and a half - two weeks at least).
