Oh, poor things.
Probably a max of 35 here today, not hot enough to bother looking.

Yeah, not to mention a lot of places would have been over 40c since 9:30-10:30 this morning, so 10+ hours.

The satellite image looks awesome at the moment with majority of northern Australia blanketed in cloud.

Bucketing down again, and some thunder to the north.

Willis Is 512k and TSV 512k don't show it up well at all.

Yeah but the DP was a mere 5.5° and the RH was 9%. You'd hardly raise a sweat.
When we had 42° days in Dec, the DP and RH was way, way more than that.

Spent 4 years at Whyalla as a 5-9 yr old and a lot of time down there in SA a pre teen as well on holiday's from the Top End (Katherine-Darwin).

A 40+ C day in the shade down that way doesen't even compare to a a mere 30 C day with 70% Humidity up this end of the country at all. Knock the humidity higher a bit more and the misery index works like the Richter scale does with earthquakes....

35 C with 85% humidity would see half the state looking like drunk penguins... leg up and flailing limbs all over the place.

I don't understand why people don't like humidity. It's my favourite weather. Then again, I don't cope with the Dry Season very well. :-/

LMAO @ Coldy.... Mate I think we wrinkle less up this end of the country to be honest.... Until Winter at least....Scaly palms along with arms and legs during the dry is a real pita...for me at least.
I Love the humidity....well except for a couple of months of the year to be really honest....No aircon here at all... so sleeping during the buildup now is sort of reminiscent of being a kid under roof fans back in the 70's in Katherine.... wet towels at 12 o'clock at night trying to get to sleep...Cept now we have turbo fans that [censored] all over the lame roof fans of that era.

Mind you all...As a Kid back then I was still out there exploring the world and having fun out doors every day that I could despite the heat.... Not trapped in an air conditioned computer screen simulation of reality telling me it was dangerous to be outdoors.

Didn't have to like it... just had to put up with it. My bus stop as a year 9 student was 750 meters away from home. Pick up was 8.00 AM.... November was the worst 28-32 C 75-100 % humidity was just average along with Thunder storms and heavy rain each and every day.

Point is, you wouldn't have top put up with it, because it won't happen.

TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST

Severe Weather Warning
for HEAVY RAINFALL

For people in Peninsula and parts of Gulf Country and North Tropical Coast and Tablelands Forecast Districts.

Issued at 4:56 am Friday, 25 January 2019.

Monsoonal conditions and a tropical low developing across far north Queensland.



Weather Situation: The strengthening monsoon trough currently extends across the northern Gulf of Carpentaria to a tropical low located approximately 150 kilometres west-southwest of Weipa and across northern Cape York Peninsula. The tropical low is forecast to develop further during the next 24 to 48 hours and is currently rated a moderate (20-50%) chance of forming into a tropical cyclone today and a high (greater than 50%) chance on Saturday. The low will move slowly southwards in the next day or two, dragging the monsoon trough southwards over the Peninsula and east coast.

Heavy rain, which may lead to flash flooding, is developing across far north Queensland. 6-hourly rainfall totals of 100 to 150mm are likely and locally heavier falls are possible with any thunderstorms.

The heaviest falls are currently focused to the north of Coen, and will gradually extend southwards during today. Heavy falls are expected to develop south of Port Douglas, including around Cairns, during Saturday morning.

A Cyclone Warning has been declared between Gilbert River Mouth and Weipa. A Cyclone Watch is current for the remaining southeast Gulf coast between Gilbert River Mouth and the NT/QLD border.

A Flood Watch is current for catchments across Cape York Peninsula, the eastern Gulf Country and the North Tropical Coast.

Locations which may be affected include Lockhart River, Weipa, Thursday Island, Coen, Port Douglas, Cooktown, Laura, Aurukun, Musgrave, Bamaga, Old Mapoon, Kowanyama, Dunbar, Palmerville, Cairns, Atherton, Mareeba and Napranum.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. If it's flooded, forget it.
* Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.

The next Severe Weather Warning will be issued by 11:00 am AEST Friday.

Good steady rain out here at the moment. Shame the radar isn’t working, I’m sure it would look amazing. A further 29mm overnight, to 6am, making a 24 hr total of 87mm.... it’s going to be an interesting weekend ☔️😀☔️🇦🇺🍾⚡️

It is still hot no matter how you look at it. The humidity was between 9-15% during the day raising to 20% for an hour in the evening, peaking at 24% with a temp of 41.7c. They experienced a HI of mostly over 43c from 1:30-8:30 with the highest being 44.8c

When cairns recorded its 2 43.6c day the humidity was 20-25%. The highest HI the on first day was 41.6c and the second was 42.7c.
Also cairns was only above 40c for 3 hours the first day and 2 hours the second. The other 2 days it went over 40 it was for 40mins and less than 10 mins. Adelaide was over 44c for 6-7 hours and over 40 for 10 hours.

The heat we had felt just like Adelaide heat. My Dad, from Adelaide, was in Cairns during that heat and that is what he thought too.

That would keel me over too as it would be a DP of over 32c and I can safely say I have not experienced anything that high in nearly 7 years up here.


Not disputing high DPs are hard to deal with but lets not just flick off the heat down south. It was extreme by anyones account.

Radar appears to be back online? I'm getting an image on my Weatherzone app.

Deciding wether to go to work or not... My Toyota Echo can't swim and I'd like to be home for the weekend!!
