morning all.. No pun intended.. :D
ACC G showing a precip',signal for tuesday the 29th July 2019 for the coastal border region.
Surface high pressure with onshore winds but the weak upper troughing seems to be doing the work.
Ground is drying on the coast atm. So the plants will be happy.

Tropicaltidbits.com still shows a significant upper level trough and cut off low passing just to our south around August 5-8th. I hope the downgrades don’t continue. At least it’s a bit of a change from the zonal flow and ridging we have been experiencing.
We are down to 90 litres water usage per person here in Warwick. From what I have heard, council says it’s business as usual regarding the Warwick rodeo and other special events here in town. There was talk of possibly canceling some events due to the extreme water restrictions . I guess we will have to wait and see....

For anyone interested, the Beta BoM webpage (for site-specific weather info) that's been undergoing evaluation for many months, is fully operational:
https://weather.bom.gov.au/

A couple of the useful things about the revamped layout is that the types of warnings (when applicable) and obs are on the same page as the forecast for that location, and the user is able to pan and zoom the radar image - example screenshots above.

So dry. I was just searching through ABC news and this was a dust devil near Gladstone on the 22 July 2019.

Finally got around to trying the new BETA weather interface by BOM.
Great stuff Ken. I really enjoyed using this product. I will definately use it in the future.
I found the link on the BOM front page as well.
Great layout, user friendly.
I love the radar underneath as well.
If l was to have any criticism at all it would be the front page. A bit drab and uninviting
but behind that..,excellent
Here is a link to my page for tweed heads
https://beta.weather.bom.gov.au/locatio ... weed-heads
When l looked tonight for tweed heads l saw a steady stream of onshore southerly shower cells.
and feels like 12 deg c atm with a south westerly.
Chances of showers during the week with quite low probability..
ACC g confirming with weak precip' signal off shore for the next 5days
.....
Great work RWM. Nice summary of JULY. Thanks :D 8-)

HI RWM.
I read your research in the tropical thread and posted hour findings on my blog. Great work.. :
D
https://weathercycles.wordpress.com/201 ... ot-number/
________________------------------_______________
A moisture laden, long wave surface trough arrives about thursday the 8th August 2019.(t+150hrs)
Our Region is on the northern periphery of the trough but ACC g gives us some precip' as it passes through.
Pre frontal band or wind change line dynamics.

Only 544 thickness , so may see a small drop in temps.
No low level snow from this one.

AAO is currently neutral today and forecast to drop into the neg' this week to coincide with this expansion of the westerly belt

Our main problem atm is (as far as wanting a wintry cold blast goes), if the low peaks too far west, we get a warm NW flow over us for a number of days and even if we do get colder max temps out of it, they'd be delayed.
Of course, if it peaks further east, our chances of getting colder SW winds will be higher.

In any case, it still looks like coastal SE QLD at least could get significantly warmer than normal temps again mid to late next week.

The cold outbreak was looking pretty impressive in some of the earlier model runs although not so impressive now. Still plenty of time for any changes though.
