Thank you Black Nor'easter! You may need to post that (when appropriate) in other threads- as it's being asked frequently- and it's stirring things up a bit - no doubt.

Sums it up nicely though.

Thanks again.

Gfs still on its own regarding the low. Even it has downgraded the low.

Looking good for rain mid next week when this trough passes through. I think 25-50mm is on the cards over the few days

Can anyone please explain to me why it is so humid here on the Gold Coast? And is there a break in that humidity, even for a day or two on the horizon? Thanks smile

Humidity is shocking high lately! More like tropical climate.

I think STCY has pushed down the subtropical jet stream further south than usual. It pushes the tropical humid air like the build up conditions.

The rains will come in quickly from Sunday once the southerly change comes through. Temperatures will cool down but humidity will stay high. Im leaving back to Townsville from Ballina on Tuesday following the change so i assuming that i wont get cooler weather for another four months!

It is because of the consistent northerly winds we have had for the past week or so, bringing in warm moist air from the northern tropics. If you look at the synoptic charts (under 'synoptic" in the radar and maps tab) you can see that the direction of these winds is due to the large high off the east coast of Australia (wind travels in an anti-clockwise direction around high pressure systems). That's the layman's explanation, but hopefully it is helpful.

If you click on "my local weather" and look at the 7 day forecast, you will see that the humidity starts to drop early next week after the south-easterly change kicks in. If again you look at the synoptic chart, you will see that this change in wind direction is due to the high in the east moving away, being replaced by a new high to the south of Australia, which for the same reasons as above (direction of winds around the high) will bring cooler winds from the south. Won't make a huge difference, but should be noticeable.

What Matt said above is another factor, but harder to understand because it is more complex - if you're just starting out, it's easier to understand the basics

Weather experts - please excuse my simplistic explanation, but for new people to the forum, I find it makes more sense explained that way - even for me smile

That was a great way of explaining it.

As a newbie to the world of meteorology, I really appreciate you taking the time. Thanks. smile

Not exactly - you can see the high as a red "H" on this chart on which you can also see warm air (yellow arrow) being drawn from the north into the low pressure trough across Australia (dotted line). The trough is another factor - didn't mention it before because I was going for simple, but hopefully you are getting the idea that weather is a complex system - or groups of systems - that all interact. I don't think I will ever get my head around it!

On this chart for Tuesday you can see that the high in the east has moved on, and there is a new one down south - it has a green arrow (cooler air) coming onto the continent from the south-east. You will also that the concentric lines are quite a long way apart around the high - the closer the lines are together, the greater the wind speed, so highs are normally associated with calmer weather.

LOL I'm beginning to regret my "simple" explanation - I think I've dug myself a hole trying to explain it in my own limited way smile

I do not know where else to post this question, but I thought we had a dedicated thread for discussions on power generators, where is it? Did a search that came with pages of other threads, but not specific to the generators ... Anyone?

The forum crashed due to the sheer volume of users/page requests, and came back online around 9am the next day.

it actually crashed wednesday night at around 10.15pm and came back on around 8.30am on thursday.

There is a thread on this if you wanna read into more detail of why it crashed and how it could be improved smile
