Tropical System May 24th on East coast?

If you look at the 00zGFS loop you'll notice the "flow" of moisture isnt West/East, its mostly South/North after today. To me that signaled more "possibilities" of coastal storms. There's tomorrows low riding up the coast. There's a chance on the 15th. Then there's this now its showing in the Loooong range.

I think you might have to go some to match our impressively low standards recently - it's more than likely that by the end of tomorrow (10th) our MTD sun total will still be under ten hours out of a possible 140-150. It will also have rained on 22 of the past 25 days (and I'm not talking about five-minute showers either).

You're still in Brisbane, right? As a warmth lover I'd have thought you'd be raving about the climate there, yet you hardly ever even mention it

Doesn't look too bad though. I guess that's the good thing of living in a place with warm weather relative to other areas, even when it's below average, it isn't bad. Or not?
Anyway, another decent day here. We reached 16C yesterday and we're at 13C today, feels pleasant.

The weather here is like a typical London summer at the moment, it never gets particularly hot (during the summer just gone it only reached 32C on a handful of days).

Brisbane weather - local weather forecast

Where I've been working (400km inland from Brisbane), the highs are in the mid 20s but lows are horrible (below 5C). Starting work at 6am is not fun.

14-16C temperatures in May are pretty pathetic when the average is 18C for mid May and 20C for late May.

Coming from Leeds I can understand it not looking that bad; London's average high at the end of May is warmer than Leeds' average max in July.

Honestly, I think we're somewhere around 10 hours MTD too. I can only recall one or maybe two afternoons with at least a few hours of solid sunshine. Other than that, it's pretty much been overcast. Even occasional glimpses of sun are hard to come by. Anyone else here in the northeast agree or am I exaggerating?

Looks like this mucky airmass will finally head out Friday and Saturday.

I think we got more sunshine here around the weekend.

Only 57F at 3PM today but by this Sunday it looks like it will be peaking to at least 86F/30C. It'll be sunny with low dew points of course. Next week looks to return to more normal temps though.
