Im with Ezzz on that ... I can tolerate dry heat over humid heat. Its something about the oppressiveness that drives me mental, the body just becomes so gluggy and sticky it is unbearable.

I'm the other way around... yeah the dry heat is fairly bearable, but I definitely prefer sultry/oppressive heat. Back in school I seemed to cope better than most when it came to outdoor activities. Or maybe that's the wx-freak in me... when it's hot and humid it's always worth watching the sky smile In saying that, it is great to have aircon nearby in such heat!!

Back in January 1994 (same month as the shocking bushfires in NSW) we had a 2 week run of very hot days with about 40-50% RH out over inland areas. I forget the exact figure, but Amberley had between 10 and 14 consecutive days of temps over 38C. I'm sad to say the cap from hell prevented any worthwhile storm activity in that 2 week period! I remember feeling very ripped off to have such prolonged heat and no stormy respite!

Talking about humidity... it'll be interesting to see how good the moisture return is after today's very dry conditions. Bring on tomorrow - a possible storm in the late arvo or evening.

Up to 39C so far today at Amberley.

I find this interesting from the BOM's extended outlook,

An upper trough will amplify across south-east Qld during Monday and Tuesday and will clear the high cloud.

Mostly cloudy for Monday, Tuesday clearing shower is on the forecast, so is the upper trough that will amplify over SE QLD, will it give us far more action then what the current forecast say's, there's nothing on Stormcast for these two days, so a mystery confused

I really think BoM have absolutely no idea what is going on anywhere across QLD apart from the NW where that low is where rain is a given.

I guess Thursday is our next day to look onto but even that's looking marginal at this stage. I really hope the uppers progged by EC & GFS don't come off for next weekend/through next week, the last thing we need is a big mid-upper ridge to park itself right over the eastern states at this time of the season....Fingers crossed that doesn't happen.

One of my blog readers videos electrical storms from her Brisbane apartment. The other day she discovered this sequence of a jet being raked by lightning on departure from Brisbane while examining a two hour video.

Thats a great Blog you have running there Ben. I've worked for a couple of airlines and always found aviation extremely interesting.

With the video that Linda has posted what height does she estimate the plane is flying at? It looks to me it has only just taken off and perhaps around 3000-6000 feet? The lightning in your screen capture looks to be in the form of CC lightning you would normally find a bit higher than that. My question is how do you know it has actually hit the plane?

Scud,

My guess is that it was a Qantas 767 and closer to 3000 feet than 6000 feet. There is no certainty it was struck, although Linda said that when all the frames were viewed at normal speed it definitely appeared that way.

Over time i have noticed something weird but interesting: I do not exactly know if it happens across your stations in SE QLD, but it happens here frequently -> (50%-75% of the time)

Most years, If we get a dry October,November and December, our January,February and March become very wet. Though when we get big rains/storms in October/November and December, the storm and rain systems become less frequent in the later summer months.( Jan, Feb and march)
We usually do receive some activity, but it becomes very quiet and we often do not get our monthly average rainfall.

The start of this new year (January) has just reminded me how this happens. At the moment, there is little rain around or in sight!
I do know its early in the month and the rains might suddenly come, but i just wanted to know if anyone has noticed any trends like this over time?

I have noticed this as well, some part of it I think is the spring/early summer storm season going into the transition to mid summer, Autumn, tropical sort of rainfall patterns, this is sometime's boring weatherwise being in the middle between the 2, we will still have storms in the future months, but the main storm season is in spring onwards where the cold air from winter down south hits the warming air up here, so basically when the south pole warms up it slows things down stormwise up here, till the tropical weather starts to effect us. I could be wrong but someone else may have a better explanation on this.

Yeah that's pretty much it I reckon.. also in the spring time it starts to heat up a lot more on the surface due to the sun being over our hemisphere.. Throughout spring we also get some sharp upper troughs.. where the air aloft can still get very cold while the air on the ground can get very warm/hot.

During the mid summer months and into the start of Autumn the upper air tends to be warmer on average (though not all the time) which tends to shift the focus more to rain events in QLD rather than severe storm events...while NSW and Victoria start to experience their severe storm season..where lapse rates tend to be a bit steeper when there's instability.. In saying that tho' there are still plenty of storm type setups through the summer months (maybe not as often tho'?) and they also kinda increase a little as we get into Autumn usually when the uppers start to cool again..

At the moment it's this persisting ridge making it quiet here in SE QLD (just like last year) which i've noticed over the years tends to happen when the wet season up north really starts kicking into gear.. Eventually the ridge will start to break down tho' (hopefully soon) and the typical inland trough which is often present this time of year will start giving QLD our storms back..

I'm sure there's many other reasons influencing it than this.. but that's just what i've observed over quite a few years.. Hopefully in a week or so time the weather might be a little more interesting down here.. I'm sure someone else will have a more thorough explanation than mine too!

i feel that this is a very common january , i have never recalled a january that wasnt dominated by ridgeing , the only thing missing is the showery weather .

As for storms in the period of oct to feb january on average has the least number of storms (brisbane and surrounds only) due to this ridgeing

I noticed two things today that stood out - firstly, at about 4pm I saw a magnificent rainbow halo around the sun. If I was a better photographer, I would have had a go at capturing it . . . Secondly, I saw the clearest and longest vapour trail (contrail?) I have ever seen (this was around 5pm). I'm assuming this means very cold air above - at what level would this be, and why is this the case?
