Dust quite apparent to the west now, range no longer visible. Wind here eased off a tad for last 5 min.
Will make an awesome sunset!

Strange that while all Obs for SE Qld are showing high winds, the doppler radar image is only showing a localised area about 30km from the radar centre.

The less particles of the right size (e.g. raindrops, etc) there are in the air, the less there is for the radar energy to be reflected back so on sunny days, the doppler wind image often appears pretty sparse compared to days when there's lot of precip or other suitable particles of the right size around.

The current wind obs are intersting up this way.

Still very much out of the NNE right along the coastal fringe from Point Lookout to Double Island Point.
But go a little bit inland and it's anything from WSW (on the Southern end of the coast) and WNW (on the Northen end of the coast).

I guess it hasn't pushed right onto the coast just yet, but expected more consistant obs with the strength of this system.

The parks and yards here are littered with small tree branches torn off by the wind. Windiest day we have had here in awhile. No rain reported this afternoon.

Can't blame you LightningGus... I'd rather be anywhere than here.

Just saw a nice video of a raging waterfall in Katoomba of all places during today's deluge.

The satellite image via Weatherzone with the currently observed fire dangers pretty much sums it up.

The upgrade earlier this afternoon of the fire weather warning to Catastrophic fire danger for the Capricornia and Central Highlands & Coalfields is as bad as it gets:

Had a nice storm with some strong gusts and a bit of hail at about 1pm. Dunno how we faired at home yet though I'd imagine it was worse over there. Heard of people not having power too but didn't lose it at work. Disgustingly dry and hazy/dusty out there now.

http://satview.bom.gov.au/ Gonna be a dusty evening particularly over northern parts if that reaches the coast. The westerly still hasn't hit here.

Cells just skimmed us here, managed to get 1.5mm.

What an odd day weather wise, had a low pressure recording of 981hPa, currently sitting at 985hPa.

Currently sitting at 32° at nearly 7pm as well.

I can't be certain Big T but I'd be surprised if there was in QLD ever since they started to be measured.

The area of thicker dust was starting to stream down across northern parts of SE QLD as the sun set with another more narrow band moving across areas near the NSW/QLD border.

Max temp today soared up to 37.9C in Brisbane today and 38.2C in Archerfield.
Even at 6:40pm, it's still sitting on 30.7C

But in complete contrast, Glen Innes had plummeted to 13.7C by 6:30pm EDT and Armidale 11.8C by 3pm.

I'm still hoping the graph at the bottom will eventuate:

I heard Redcliffe topped the max temp for se area today’? Could be wrong , but if correct, that’s a rare treat for them.
