It seems strange to me that the Bureau (both NSW and QLD) barely even mention the word 'dust' in any of their forecasts. In fact, the only district forecast I can find with the word 'dust' in is the Upper & Lower Western districts of NSW and the statewide forecast.

Maybe they think its not an issue, people with respiratory issues like myself beg to differ.

Speculation that Sydney might get a dust storm with the front:

If it eventuates and they get it, you'd think we have a good chance too.

Just slightly ahead of you RWM we had 61km/h at 1339. It hit the house with a thud, since then it has been extreme constant strong winds near the bay from the NNE - NE.

Some cells approaching Toowoomba ATM.

Lovely dark looking, to the SW. Gusty wind all day, 33C & 35% RH.
A winter looking system with this heat?
Might be a surprise in store for some.

I had a brief look at the 2009 synoptic when the dust storm hit..looks different to the current weather pattern. I'm presuming the 2009 dusty never got rain which is why it made the coast so easily?

Pretty much going as expected so far gleno - refer to earlier post below (the WNW steering flow aloft was always going to make the initial activity favour southern and western parts of our region at first because of the orientation of the band):


Originally Posted By: Ken Kato

This afternoon: The first band marches across the Downs and Northern Tablelands, and approaches inland and southern SE QLD later this afternoon (EC's a bit slower).

This evening: This activity shifts across parts of SE QLD and the NE NSW coast but in a weakening state.

Overnight: Isolated lingering activity.

Thursday morning: Another lot of activity in a NW/SE band forms over the Downs early morning before spreading to parts of the SE QLD/NE NSW coast (EC has the heavier precip a bit further north and doesn't intensify it as much over the Downs).

Thursday afternoon: The band progressively contracts NE and clears most of SE QLD by late afternoon.

So in other words, not necessarily continuous but possibly in the form of a couple of peaks.

Yea, amazing himawari sat pic, most of eastern OZ under cloud & that low south of Adelaide looks to have teeth.
Amazingly the snowies gona get well over half a metre of snow, if not a metre.
Thats just amazing for November.

Is it me or is it starting to thin out north of Toowoomba?

Was expecting a solid slab of blue on the radar coming through Brisbane, like near the border.

Bit of lightning in the cell moving over Esk showing up on Stormtracker. How far East it makes it is the question, might get a shower with a couple of rumbles if it doesn’t choke.
